Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Katie Davis Majors moved to Uganda over a decade ago with no idea that this would be the place that God chose to build her home and her family. Today, she is a wife to Benji and mom to her fourteen favorite people. Katie and her family invest their lives in empowering the people of Uganda with education, medical care, and spiritual discipleship. She is also the founder of Amazima Ministries, an organization that cares for vulnerable children and families in Uganda and the author of the New York Times bestseller Kisses from Katie.

Editorial Reviews

"Katie Davis Majors is a voice for this generation, calling us all to a wild faith. She walks that sweet line between life and death, hope and despair, asking for a miracle and preparing yourself for the worst. She invites us into her story and pushes us to the edge, challenging us to dare to hope no matter what life throws at us."
—Jefferson Bethke, author of Jesus>Religion and It’s Not What You Think

"Every page of this book is a piece of Katie’s heart. It’s one thing to say we believe God is good. It’s another thing to wrestle with Him in the trenches and come out assured on the other side."
—Korie Robertson, New York Times best-selling author and star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty

"I’ve followed Katie’s story for years, and just when I thought it couldn’t get any more powerful, the Lord proved me wrong. As I read these words, I felt like I was in the pages with her, watching God unfold this amazing new season of her life. Her words and heart for Jesus will stay with me forever, and I’m honored to be on the sidelines cheering for all the chapters to come."
—Angie Smith, speaker, blogger, and author of Seamless

"Once again my friend Katie has painted a beautiful picture of what it looks like to lead with love. You’re going to love this book."
—Bob Goff, New York Times best-selling author of Love Does

"These are the inspirational words of a woman so connected to the heart of her Savior, she is willing to risk anything, regardless of the outcome, to make His name known. I have grown so much from her wisdom and bold example."
—Jennie Allen, founder and visionary of IF:Gathering and author of Nothing to Prove

    This book! Oh, my goodness! This book is one that if I could, I would share a copy with everyone I know, and perhaps a few people I don't. It is so beautiful. And heart-wrenching. And grace-filled. It is beautifully, and sometimes painfully, honest. Mrs. Major's heart shines through on every single page and I found myself so absorbed in her words. She writes her story, her daughters' story, and God's story. In every chapter, I was taken through a time in their lives that greatly impacted the author's faith and showed her another facet of this King she so faithfully serves. She shows us her struggles, the moments where she didn't think she could take one more step, and the moments where joy was abundant. This wasn't an easy book to read. It challenged me, inspired me. Brought me to tears more than once and and to my knees in prayer, as I was reminded of another important truth. It offers hope in the only place it can truly be found - God.

    And I love the title - it is so fitting! This book is written as though I'm sitting across from Mrs. Majors, listening to her tell me her story. I loved that! She engaged my heart and mind, introducing me to a culture I've never known, and teaching me deeper truths about a God I thought I knew (but she showed me anew many things about Him!). Her love for Him is written in every line, across every margin. Even in the moments she speaks about arguing with God, even in the hard times, and the ugly, love is a constant. I so admire the faith that brought her to this point, the faith that carried her through every trial and raised her up in the joyful times. I also loved the wisdom I found with every turn of a page. I kept a notebook beside me while reading this one, because I was constantly pausing to jot a quote or a thought to recall later.

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone going through a difficult time, or even anyone who knows someone struggling. Which is pretty much everyone! I personally found it to be so encouraging and it is a beautiful reminder that we are never alone in our battles.

    *My thanks to the publisher for my complimentary copy of this book! I was not required to write a positive review and have not been compensated for it in any way. All opinions expressed are my own.

    An Amazing Story of God's Love and Provision

    This is the hardest book review I've ever written. Because it's almost impossible to describe how wonderful this book is. I don't typically read nonfiction. And I certainly don't dog-ear pages. But I did both with this book. It was that or have half the book tacked to my wall. It's THAT good. Katie's story and faith are simply amazing and her wisdom radiates from every page as she wrestles with God's goodness and provision even in the midst of brokenness. Every word and story spoke straight to my heart. I cried during her pain and I cried when God provided. I hadn't realized how much I needed this book before I read it, but I am so glad I did and I'm already rereading it and highlighting my favorite sections. Despite the pain and sorrow present within, this is truly a book of hope and faith that calls us to always trust in Him who provides.

    "We hold on to our hope. There is always a ram in the thicket. Because there is always the Lamb on the throne."

    If you blended John Piper's passion to see God glorified, Ann Voskamp's vulnerability, David Platt's desire for the nations, and Elyse Fitzpatrick's ability to illustrate Jesus, with the everyday struggles of an everyday mom and the need for a savior of an everyday Christian and saturated it with scripture you would have a glimpse of this book. Katie Davis Majors expresses all of these things through the most interesting, thought provoking, convicting, and compelling stories of her life as an adoptive mother of 13 girls and biological mother of one sweet baby boy in Uganda.

    Every page is drenched with Jesus. You can enjoy it in one day or meditate on it, one sentence at a time, for months. Either way this biography, testimony, handbook, journal, bible study, record of God's grace in a weary place will not leave you disappointed or unchanged

    Is there anyone who has not struggled with hope in the face of difficult situations? Katie Davis Majors at 28 years old has experienced more challenges, heart ache, and joy than many of us will experience in a lifetime. Her first book, Kisses From Katie was a very inspiring look at her life and move to Uganda after high school and the adoption of 13 Ugandan girls. Some of her challenges were already evident in her first book, but Daring to Hope offers a deeper look into the pain and loss she experiences and the questions she asks God and the hope it gives her. Satans first goal is to destroy out faith and Katie wrestles with deep questions of faith. Will she continue to dare to hope in God? What sees her through some of the excruciating situations is the way she clings to Gods word and prayer. Like Jacob in the Bible, she wrestles with God and wont let him go until she finds peace, and peace leads to joy.

    Katie Majors is one of those rare people who are just so alive to God that you desire to know God better. This book has deepened my spiritual life. I know how much I need His words on my heart, I want to talk to Him about every situation, and I know that disappointments and suffering are part of growing my faith and hope in Him. My book is marked with so many quotes that I want to reread and its hard to narrow down a favorite, but over and over I find myself going back to page 34. A faith that trusts Him only when the ending is good is a fickle faith. A faith that trusts him regardless of the outcome is real.

    I know that 2017 isnt over yet, but I suspect this book will prove to be the best book I have read this year ( and I read lots), and maybe the best in a couple years. I laughed and cried right along with Katie. I highly recommend this book. It will encourage and grow your faith to hope in the God who sees you and your situations.

    I was provided an advance copy of this book to read as part of a launch team and it was just the right time in my life. The book was what I needed at this time. It has been an amazing blessing and privilege to have been a part of this group.

    Daring to Hope by Katie Davis Majors is a book that will leave you changed. She speaks so honestly about Gods love and all that He will do in ones life when we completely surrender to Him. This book is one that grips you from the beginning and keeps you hanging on through the last sentence. One I want to share; yet want to read again.
