Katie Davis, author of the New York Times best-selling book Kisses From Katie (Howard Books), has been named the winner of Glamour magazine's "Women of the Year Readers' Choice Award." Davis was one of eight semi-finalists.

"Katie's devout commitment to Christ and her zeal for mission work is just the type of example young women in America need," said Jonathan Merkh, publisher at Howard Books.

Davis was recently featured in People magazine, spotlighting Kisses From Katie, which details her ministry work in Uganda and her adoption of 13 girls from the East African country. Released in October 2011, the book debuted at No. 10 on the New York Times Paperback Nonfiction list for the week of Sept. 23.

Davis was featured in Glamour magazine's Nov. 6 issue, recapping the Women of the Year award. She was also to be recognized today, Nov. 12, at the 2012 Women of the Year Awards Gala in New York City. Since Davis' schedule does not allow her to leave Uganda, her parents, Scott and Mary Pat Davis, will attend in her place.

Meanwhile, a number of Christian authors were among Christianity Today's "50 Women You Should Know," including Ann Voskamp (One Thousand Gifts); Christine Caine (Undaunted); Anne Graham Lotz (Expecting to See Jesus); Margaret Feinberg (Hungry for God); and Joni Eareckson Tada (Joni & Ken: An Untold Love Story, April 2013)—all published by Zondervan. Other authors included Kara Powell (The Uncommon Ministry) and Elisabeth Elliot (A Path Through Suffering), both published by Regal Books, as well as Joyce Meyer (Power Thoughts, FaithWords) and Beth Moore (Praying God's Word), Priscilla Shirer (The Resolution for Women), and Jen Hatmaker (7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess)—all published by B&H Publishing Group.

The list was created based on the input of dozens of evangelical leaders who were asked to identify Christian women in North America whom evangelical leaders admire and are shaping the life of the church and culture in significant ways.
