My Life in the Red Dirt of Uganda, was Katie's suggested subtitle.
"When you think of what one young man can accomplish by simply being open to God's call, no matter the cost, you begin to ask questions like, Am I really open to God's will for my life? Through Katie's life, we are reminded of how God can use ordinary people to do extraordinary things for Him. We simply need to be willing to be used." -- Rich Stearns, President of World Vision U.S.
"Sometimes I want to spend hours talking with my best friends about boys and fashion and school and life. I want to go to the gym; I want my hair to look nice; I want to be allowed to wear jeans. I want to be a normal young woman living in America, sometimes."
"But I want other things more. All the time. I want to be spiritually and emotionally filled every day. I want to be loved and cuddled by a hundred children and never go a day without laughing. I want to wake up to a roosterís crow and open my eyes to see lush green trees that seem to pulse with life against a piercing blue sky and the rusty red soil of Uganda. I want to be challenged endlessly. I want to be taught by those I teach, and I want to share Godís love with people who otherwise might not know it. I want to work so hard that I end every day filthy and too tired to move. I want to make some kind of difference, no matter how small, and I want to follow the calling God has placed on my heart. I want to give my life away, to serve the Lord with each breath. At the end of the day, no matter how hard, I want to be right here in Uganda." -- Katie Davis
