How do you hold on to hope
when you don’t get the ending
you asked for?
When Katie Davis Majors moved to Uganda, accidentally founded a booming organization, and later became the mother of thirteen girls through the miracle of adoption, she determined to weave her life together with the people she desired to serve. But joy often gave way to sorrow as she invested her heart fully in walking alongside people in the grip of poverty, addiction, desperation, and disease.
After unexpected tragedy shook her family, for the first time Katie began to wonder, Is God really good? Does He really love us? When she turned to Him with her questions, God spoke truth to her heart and drew her even deeper into relationship with Him.
Daring to Hope is an invitation to cling to the God of the impossible—the God who whispers His love to us in the quiet, in the mundane, when our prayers are not answered the way we want or the miracle doesn’t come. It’s about a mother discovering the extraordinary strength it takes to be ordinary. It’s about choosing faith no matter the circumstance and about encountering God’s goodness in the least expected places.
Though your heartaches and dreams may take a different shape, you will find your own questions echoed in these pages. You’ll be reminded of the gifts of joy in the midst of sorrow. And you’ll hear God’s whisper: Hold on to hope. I will meet you here.
Daring to Hope
I am still processing all that is to be learned from Katie Davis Major’s words and stories. However, this I can share: as I read, I am constantly inspired and challenged by Katie’s diligence in prayer, her walk with the Lord and in her relationships and humble love and service to the people around her. I would reccommend this book (and any and everything else written by Katie, past & future) to everyone.
This book is incredibly encouraging. If you have ever looked at the world and wondered where God is in all the suffering, this book is for you. Katie has lived through suffering and speaks truth about God’s presence and purpose in the midst of suffering.
Sweet and Vunerable
Daring to Hope is an excellent update on the life of Katie Davis Majors. I greatly appreciated her vulnerability and willingness to share her journey with readers. Each story she shares comes complete with the words God was speaking to her during those trials. It is a beautiful picture of what a life surrendered to the will of God during storms and triumphs can look like.
