Summary

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 13 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 this book. 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.

Don’t miss this sequel

If you read part one, you must read this one too. The first was exciting and inspirational especially for those at a crossroad and ready for a new adventure. This one is heartfelt and strengthening especially for those already on their adventure facing the pain and battle in the long road of faithful mission with an unfailing God. Thank you Katie!

Loved it! Pre-ordered. Looked fwd to listen to it.

Could not wait to listen to Katie's 2nd book after listening to her 1st book. I could not stop listening to either books, beginning to end.

Both books so ministered to me. Although I live in the US, NY. I see many people love Jesus but are not on the straight and narrow path with Him (rather appear luke warm). Katie is. I believe I am. This is why I could relate to Katie's story in so many ways. Encouraged me, I'm not alone. On the right path with Jesus. To keep my heart and eyes on Him. Keep pressing forward. No matter how hard it gets at times via counting the cost for Christ Jesus as He has called me too.

Excellent audio book.

Thank you Katie, for being you in the Lord! I love who you are in Christ Jesus.

Listen on at least 2x speed

I was so looking forward to this book. I pre ordered it and everything. I couldn’t wait to hear the next chapter but I hate to say I didn’t love it. This felt more bible study than story.

The narrator was just sooo slow. Like pulling teeth. I listened to 90% of the book on 2x speed and 5% on 2.5x. Painful to listen to at Normal speed.

God glorifying

Absolutely beautiful. Katie’s transparency and vulnerability is beautiful. Such powerful reminders that God’s happy endings do not always look like our happy endings. He receives the glory and I praise Him better because of this book.

Daring to Hope Review

I purchased this Audible book shortly after finishing the author’s first book, Kisses from Katie.
Every time I listened to the book I felt like I was spending valuable time with a very dear friend. And I was, Jesus. I was amazed at his love for all of us through every emotion, difficult circumstance, and life’s messes. His presence, and love came alive through the words and experiences of Katie.
I can’t recommend this book highly enough for every age, especially young adults. It is truly life changing!!

Beautiful inspirational story

Beautiful tale told by a remarkable young woman who doesn’t seem to know how really remarkable she is. As you journey through her world with her you can feel the presence of Jesus. This book is worth every minute and much more.
