Meet Nicole Halbrooks Vaughn: Author of Devotions From Torah

Have you been anticipating my review of Devotions From Genesis: It's Not Just Ancient History and Devotions From Exodus: Learning to Live in Freedom by Nicole Halbrooks Vaughn? I hope so and it'll be coming this week!

First, however, I would love for you to *get to know her* a bit. It has been lovely getting to know Nicole Halbrooks Vaughn, the blogging author at Proven Path Ministries. Won't you take a few moments to enjoy this interview with her? It's nice to get to know people, their passion, and their heart for the Lord.

Friends, meet Nicole Halbrooks Vaughn

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!

Is there anything you find particularly challenging about writing a book? 

My greatest fear is that I will inaccurately teach the Word of God. I have several trusted teachers and my Pastor who is fluent in Greek and Hebrew and has at least three doctorates in theology read every book before I submit it for the sole purpose of making sure that it is biblically sound.

 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.    

I hope this interview has helped you to learn more about Nicole's heart. There is much to be learned about the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob from the Old Testament. These devotions have much to offer the individual desiring to know Him more fully. You can purchase your copy of Devotions From Genesis: It's Not Just Ancient History and Devotions From Exodus:
