A Good Dose of Inspiration


Recently I had the privilege to hear this young girl Katie share her story.  Katie is a 20 year old girl from the Nashville area that fell in love with Uganda and has committed her life to making a difference in that country.  Personally she has legally adopted 13 little girls who call her “momma” and cares for hundreds more through the ministry she started, Amazima Ministries International.

Katie’s story inspires me.  Katie inspires me.

She is radically following her dreams.

She is facing her fears daily.

She is loving the unloved relentlessly.

She is defying conventional wisdom.

She is making a difference.

She is unashamed of her calling.

Not all of us are called to as radical a purpose as Katie.  But how many of us are as unafraid, unashamed and persistent in pursuit of God’s calling on our lives?

I needed to hear Katie’s story to inspire me.

What or who has inspired you recently?  I encourage you to find something that stirs your heart, challenges your sense of security and rocks your world of complacency.  We all need a good dose of inspiration!

    My since of inspiration has come from a young lady named Jaiashree I met while in India earlier this year. God is using her in amazing ways in the midst of a very difficult situation.

    Katie is a friend and has spoken in my home before. She inspires me beyond belief,m as does Elle (just as Tina said). Elle is the one who “found” Katie for us. God is amazing!
