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 a mother through the miracle of adoption, she determined to deeply weave her life together with the people she desired to serve. But the joy of caring for one person at a time meant investing her heart fully into the many needs around her and often gave way to sorrow as she walked alongside people in the grip of addiction, desperation, and disease.
After unexpected tragedy shook her family, for the first time in her life Katie began to wonder, Is God really good? Does He really love us? As she turned to Him with her doubts and shaky faith, God did not remain silent but spoke truths to her heart, drawing her even more deeply into relationship with Him.
Daring to Hope is an invitation to hope in 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 wanted or the miracle doesn’t come. It is about a mother discovering the extraordinary strength it takes just to be ordinary. It is about choosing faith no matter the circumstance and about encountering God’s goodness and presence in the least expected places, when life is a far cry from anything we imagined.
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 courage in the face of uncertainty. And you’ll hear God’s whisper: Your hope in Me will never leave you disappointed.
“The answer to every question you have is always intimate relationship. Intimate relationship with Him. Relationship is the whole of reality. Katie lives this in the rarest, realest, and most Jesus-revolutionary way. These pages testify to an intimate love affair with Jesus that births a hope that cannot disappoint. And you can always hold on to hope when you know Jesus is holding on to you.”
“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.”
“Our culture today adores thunder and lightning: superlatives, self-expression, and flash. Daring to Hope describes a very different kind of power and beauty. It shows how one person’s faithfulness—like a gentle, persistent rain—changes the earth, slowly turning brick-hard soil into gardens; in time, it alters the contours of the land itself. Ultimately, Daring to Hope reveals that the most important decisions we’ll ever make are the small, often unnoticed choices we make each day.”
“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.”
"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."
“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.”
“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.”
