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.
I loved reading this book and getting a sneak peak into this woman’s world. Dedicating her life to Jesus and having her faith tested over and over as she serves and loves others in Uganda is inspiring. I often read parts of this book out loud to my daughter at night and it always brought peace. I love her insight into scriptures from the Bible and how they relate to us today. By the end of the book, you feel like part of the family.
Daring to Hope
I am indebted to Katie for sharing her journey with us. Not only in the great things God has done, but in the struggles and wrestling along the way. I wept as I read of her struggles, for they are my struggles too. I ask “why God?” And “how could you?” I say “But you’re God! You could change the rules; or how can you let the innocent suffer so?!” I too want to know God deeply. I want to serve him with all of me. But then I want to shy away from the pain because it breaks my heart. I too want to get past the doubt and the anger I feel towards God. Katie has encouraged me to allow God to break my heart, to face the darkness and trust him that he is good no matter what the outcome. So I thank you Katie for your honesty in sharing your struggles. It encourages me to trust Him too. To go all the way with Him no matter what.
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.
