Excerpt :

My kitchen is painted yellow. Because yellow is the color of sunshine and of joy and because yellow is my favorite. 

It's never quite as clean as I want it to be in there. As I stand in the after-bedtime quiet, my eyes follow a trail of red-dirt footprints across this floor that is supposed to be white, and tears of gratitude begin to well. My mind fills with beloved memories, so many memories that are held here. 

End Excerpt : 

I really enjoyed Katie's first book: Kisses From Katie. It was very uplifting and it filled my heart with joy. 

This book is wonderful as well, I just didn't like it as much as the first book. 

There are stories of her children growing up, children being taken from her, friends being taken by aids while leaving their children behind, her marriage and the birth of her own baby. 

Through it all, Katie prays to God and never lets her faith waver. 

It brought a tear to my eye when one of her daughters (14 years-old) asked to do the afterward in the book. It was bittersweet. 

Happy Reading!
