    Katie, is a 22 year old from Tennessee who is now living in Uganda as a foster mother to 13 beautiful little girls. Her story is amazing and her blog is so incredibly inspiring. I am typically not one to be interested in religious causes and especially not causes outside of the US but I cannot help but be drawn back to this story. Most people know I strongly support causes helping children in the US. Not because this is where I am from, but because there is so much hurt, pain, and suffering ...

    that happy moment when your niece mistakes you for Katie.. I wouldnt mind this one bit :)

    This is a beautiful story about a woman accepting the birth of a baby that wasn't who she expected. Just balled my eyes out. :/

    This 8 month old baby was born deaf, watch the moment as his cochlear implant is activated and he hears sound for the first time, and his mother's voice. This is priceless...

    Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my 4 year old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so she dictated these words: Dear God, Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even tho...

    I hope that my kids say this about me one day... My mom was a woman I aspired to be as a child. I only hope to live a life they admire. ♥

    To quote on person on imgur: This is what honor looks like. Cherish your moms while you have them.

    A group of Christians showed up at a Chicago pride parade in July. They were holding up signs saying “I’m sorry that Christians judge you," “I’m sorry for how the churches treated you,” and “I used to be a bible-banging homophobe, I’m sorry.” THIS IS THE LOVE JESUS TALKED ABOUT. I think this takes a lot of courage, and I wish more people would step up and do this.

    God has turned my world upside down, but He’s turning it right side up.” Amazima director and founder Katie Davis tells how God changed her perspective and filled her with passion to love and serve the Ugandan people, especially the children. It’s through caring for the orphan that God has turned her values upside down and nurtured her dependence on God above all. Hear more about the remarkable impact Katie and Amazima are having in Uganda. (Part 3 of Katie Davis' interview with FamilyLife)

    love Jesus. love orphans.

    Protect children from verbal abuse.

    This man protected an orphanage (with 25 orphans run by this man's mother) in Kenya from a gang of thugs with machete. A hero! The Internet collected 65k (only 2k was needed) to help them secure the orphanage wall & land. *Making a Difference!*

    Here is a soldier in Iraq, stationed in a big sand box. He asked his wife to send him dirt ( U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet. When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil — to bring them good luck. Of all the things he could have asked his wife to send to him from home he asked for American soil. So amazing.
