I have had the great privileged to be on the review team for the fabulous “Devotions From The Torah” book series. Currently the series has two books with the third in progress.
My review will be posted tomorrow but before that I thought I would let you get to know the author, Nicole Vaughn.
Nicole is the Children’s Ministry Director at Shiloh Baptist Church in Somerville, AL. She is also the founder of Proven Path Ministries. Nicole is a woman who is dedicated in her faith, devoted to her family, and driven to share the truth of God with others. She and her husband, Patrick, currently reside in Decatur, AL with their two youngest children.
Here are some more get to know you questions that Nicole has answered for me!
What inspired you to write your first book?
Honestly… it was the nudging of the Holy Spirit. I dropped keyboarding once in high school and again in college.. all I could do was one finger poke on a keyboard… I argued with God over this nudging for at least a year… informing Him that even if I could gather these thoughts in my head it would take me years to get them typed out!
Who is your favorite author?
I go through phases… my latest is Ted Dekker!
What books have influenced you most?
No book has ever influenced me as the Word of God… but as for man… C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters, Ravi Zacharius’ The Grand Weaver, Oswald Chambers’ My Utmost For His Highest, Kay Arthur’s Israel My Beloved
What did you learn from writing your latest book?
That this series was God’s will for me… and He would see it completed… in His time, in His way, not mine.
What other projects will you be working on in the near future?
I currently am writing an in depth, verse by verse, Bible Study on the book of Romans for Kids, as I am teaching through this book. It is simply written, no frills, and is designed to teach kids how to look at every verse and every word in that verse. Anyone can follow it for free on my blog… I haven’t decided yet in what avenue I will publish it. I also am a speaker… I love the opportunities that the Lord gives me to vocally share His Word with others. My hope is that the Lord will allow 2014 to continue with these opportunities as well.
