No surprise the Litfuse chicks love to read. For 2014 we thought it’d be fun to start a book club of sorts. Each month we will announce the book of the month on the blog (and in the newsletter) you can then buy, download, or check the book out from your local library. We’ll try to have variety in the books we choose—reading different authors (not necessarily just Litfuse authors) and subject matters. Every book will be a for-fun read (no pr»

A little over a year ago I was part of a book club reading Kisses From Katie by Katie Davis, which documents her time in Uganda eventually adopting many of the kids she went to care for. I was reminded of her when I first heard the story behind the award-winning Documentary Blood Brother. Similarly, this documentary tells the story of Rocky Braat who went to an orphanage in India for a "short term" missions trip to find himself and found much mo»

inspiration: reading "Kisses from Katie" and studying Colossians today, i went back to Seacoast (Dream Center) for the first time since before i went to Africa. we started a new series called "Deeper", a study through the book of Colossians (or as Holden likes to joke: "Col-OCEANS", because the roll-in video was filmed at the beach and it's called "Deeper"...he's silly). but it was a good sermon for me.i'm NOT a history buff, by any means, but i»

Chapter 4 of Katie Davis' personal memoir, Kisses from Katie, sees Katie beginning to see the plan God has for her unfolding before her. She went to serve short term, teach in a kindergarten, share a little Jesus along the way. But soon she finds herself buying a large house (by Ugandan standards, not our own) from which to run her still undefined non-profit.Katie describes this experience simply by saying, "I have learned that something happens»

I don't have a lot to say about this week's reading from Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis and Beth Clark. I encourage you to check out my friends' posts over at Connecting to Impact.When watching over a little girl dying from malaria, Katie wrestles with the poverty and disease right before her while remembering the luxury and comfort she left behind in the United States. Katie writes, "My heart began to break over and over for the other childr»

What someone does proves what they believe.  Because of this I often check out what people do.  I adore observing doers. When we think of ways to serve God with our hands, we often think of feeding and caring for the poor, like Mother Theresa or Katie from Kisses from Katie. But I love it when people do regular things. I can’t help being impressed by my friend Kevin who serves God by playing guitar and singing, but then leaves the rest open f»

Andy Stanley opened the main sessions with an encouraging message from Galatians 6, where Paul told the early believers they should not become weary of doing good because the harvest will only be reaped in time if we do not give up. He also said to do good as you have opportunity. Stanley mentioned a couple dangers in ministry that can be avoided: Burning out, or checking out. As a ministry grows, accessibility becomes a casualty (i.e. I can̵»

Last night, I shared a little bit of Katie Davis’ story with my students. Katie was just out of high school when the love of Christ compelled her to go to Uganda and love people there. A three week trip over Christmas break turned into a year teaching Kindergarten at an orphanage before going to college, which turned into… so much more. Check out her story. It’s awesome to see young people who are willing to walk away from comfo»
