Hebrews 12:1-2
"...let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith..."

Kisses from Katie

My friend, Mindy, started doing a wonderful project called "Happy Day".   You can read about the recap of her project week here.  I was her Day 4 project (go ahead...click on the hi-lites before you go any further 'cuz you won't want to miss a thing about "Happy Day").  I am so grateful that Mindy picked me to share her book with.  I L.O.V.E. this book!  I loved it so much that I went out and bought several copies that I could gift to others for Christmas.  I tell everyone that it is really not a book about adoption, though some would tend to think that.  It is a book about a young woman who just wanted to be used by God and was willing to do whatever He asked....despite the cost.  It is a story showing how God can take ordinary people and do extraordianary things.  When I grow up, I want to be like Katie.  Having said that, please know that Katie is only 22 yrs. old and I am more than double her age.  I wish I would have had her heart when I was 22.   

This book will inspire and challenge you and quite possibly change your life.  Though you will want to rush through it (like I did), take it slow (like Mindy did).  I now want to read through it a second time to reflect on more of the book.  It is SO good.  Happy reading--from Mindy and me!
