Daring to Hope is the second book from Katie Davis Majors. Her first book was Kisses from Katie. I listened to her first book as an audio book. It was so good. Kisses from Katie is basically her story or moving to Uganda and following God's calling for her. If you haven't read that book then I would recommend it. It isn't necessary to read it before reading Daring to Hope, but it will give you more of an understanding of her story and how she ended up where she is. As much as I like Katie's first book, I do think this one even better.
Daring to Hope is more of Katie's story and also the stories of those that have come into her like. It is stories and love, hope, and faith. It is also stories of pain, heartbreak, and deep hurt. Daring to Hope is open and honest. Katie has allowed herself to raw and deep in such a beautiful way. While reading you get a sense of her deep faith and devotion to God and where her hope comes from in the midst of her everyday life, no matter what that day brings.
This book could be enjoyed by a wide range of audience. I think both men and women would enjoy
it. I also think that a wide range of age groups would enjoy this book. This is something that I would have enjoyed reading in my later teens and I also think my Grandma, who is 93, would enjoy reading it. Over and over while reading Katie's words I would think, "This is perfect for someone who has or is going through deep hurt or loss." For myself, I lost a good family friend very suddenly and unexpectedly recently. I was reading this book during that time and there were so many words and lines that brought me comfort. So, for myself, thank you to Katie for sharing her hope.
Lastly, this is my final book review for Blogging for Books. They have chosen to shut down the program. I have enjoyed writing these reviews for them, it was fun while it lasted.
