Friday Finds: Interweb Encouragement
Thanks so much for taking part in our random speed friendship making this week. (See, I told you that phrase was awkward!)
No matter what I find on-line, it seems as if my sister has almost already beaten me to it! As much time as I spend on the Internet I’m amazed at how many resources I DON’T know about. Thus…
DAY 5 Question: What’s a unique, helpful, encouraging, enlightening (etc.) website that you frequent? (Let’s leave out the obvious [Facebook, e-mail] and anything negative.)
My choice: Kisses from Katie – The Journey Blog
“What would cause an eighteen-year-old old senior class president and homecoming queen from Nashville, Tennessee, to disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brother’s heart, lose all but a handful of her friends (because the rest of them think she has gone off the deep end), and break up with the love of her life, all so she could move to Uganda, where she knew only one person but didn’t know any of the language? A passion to make a difference.
Katie Davis left over Christmas break her senior year for a short mission trip to Uganda and her life was turned completely inside out. She found herself so moved by the people and children of Uganda that she knew her calling was to return and care for them. She has given up a relatively comfortable life—at a young age—to care for the less fortunate of this world. She was so moved by the need she witnessed, she’s centered her life around meeting that need. Katie, a charismatic and articulate young woman, is in the process of adopting 13 children in Uganda, and she completely trusts God for daily provision for her and her family.” – The description for Katie’s new book (From Amazon.com) and the summary of the journey you will find on her blog!
