At an early age, Katie Wells surrendered her life to God. After college, she chose to serve Him in Bolivian missions for eight years as she taught art in a city and the Bible in a remote village. Humbling experiences opened her up to God and changed her forever.

For a young woman from central New York, Bolivia was a cultural and personal shock. She knew no Spanish but lived with a family who spoke no English. She had to learn new customs, eat new foods, find her way around Santa Cruz, a city with streets so convoluted even local taxi drivers get lost, and resist the advances of charming Bolivian men infatuated with the exotic American.

Later she would relocate to a tiny village in eastern Bolivia. Completely isolated, and with only a two-way radio for communication, Wells learned to trust God while teaching the Bible in a jungle church. She fell in love with a handsome pilot but chose friendship instead, swam in piranha-filled rivers, and dealt with loneliness—all to further God’s work.

Similar in tone to David Platt’s book RadicalReckless Design presents a rare artistic and female perspective on spiritual surrender and trust in God’s plan.

    "You Know BC and AD Here Is BS (Before Satan)" ~

    "God fashioned nine levels of Heaven and his flawless companion, the imperial seraph named Lucifer. Lucifer is perfect in God’s eyes and in those of his youngest, chubby, awkward sibling Me-el, who wants to be just like him someday! Then there is Raphael, who feels uneasy around his ideal captain yet cannot fathom why. Gabriel and Uriel, his other brethren, strive to calm Raphael’s nerves by asserting to him that God never makes mistakes . . . Would he? You may think you know the whole story, but what if there is more to it? The answer may surprise you!" ~ Elisa Guajardo Carothers
