::a little bit of coffee & a whole lot of jesus::

this was the reply from katie davis, teenage adoptive mother of eight girls living in uganda, when asked how she does it all.

"the answer has never changed and it is so simple. i don't. it's just a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of jesus."

no one does it all. no one.

but with a little bit of coffee...okay lets get real, a whole lot of coffee and a whole lot of jesus we do what we can.

so sit down, have a cup...or two... and do what you can and leave the rest for another day.


  1. This is the stuff encouraged hearts are made of. Thank you ever so. :)

  2. I wish I could have some coffee, I have to wait till my ulcer clears. But yes I agree, a bit of coffee and a whole whole lot of Jesus :-)

  3. Melissa, I just love your blog. you always, always, always inspire me. I LOVE this post. I met Katie Davis' daughters when I was in Uganda last year (Katie herself was actually out of the country in Kenya!!). Anyway, this quote is so my life (especially as I deal with the health issues I am right now) - a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus. amen and amen.
