Katie Davis ~ A true Ordinary Hero


I was thrilled to have gotten to see my sweet friend, Katie Davis, last night at her Amazima benefit. If there were ever a true Ordinary Hero, this is it. I want to encourage all of you to buy her new book that just came out this month. She is a true inspiration and has an amazing story of an ordinary young girl who simply took a mission trip and was never the same. She now lives in Uganda and has 13 daughters, runs a ministry, feeding program, and much more. She started out helping just one. She CHANGED THE WORLD FOR ONE, and God turned that into many, many more. 

 I also ran into my amazing friend, Gwen, who runs 147 Million Orphans. She has helped Katie for the past couple of years, sell her beads which has helped raise money for Amazima tremendously. I encourage you all to go to her site to buy Katie's book, where 50% of the proceeds will go directly back to Amazima Ministries.

I remember it wasn't that long ago that we were all meeting up at my sister's house for some girl time to talk about what God is doing in all of our lives. Now, a couple of years later, 147 Million Orphans, Amazima Ministries, and Ordinary Hero are mere dreams that God has brought to reality to help the least of these. I'm very thankful for these women in my life and the lives that they change every day. God has called Us all to be Ordinary Heroes to those in need in this world.
