I’m currently reading the book Devotions from Genesis: It’s Not Just Ancient History from the Devotions from the Torah series. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing Genesis through the eyes of Nicole.
The Devotions from the Torah series includes:
Devotions from Genesis: It’s Not Just Ancient History and
Devotions from Exodus Part One: Learning to Live in Freedom
Today I will tell you a little about Nichole and later this week I’ll tell you more about the Devotions from the Torah series.
Nichole was raised in a fairly small city in Alabama. After many attempts to find fulfillment in earthly things, family, marriage, children, she heard a testimony that made her realize she knew about God, but did not know Him.
She says she went to church that morning a broken women, and came home a new creation in Christ Jesus. The void within her was filled.
Today she is the Children’s Ministry Director at Shiloh Baptist Church, the Co-administrator of CrossRoads Christian Academy, and the founder of Proven Path Ministries. She also leads Inductive Precept Upon Precept studies, has served as an advocate for her local crisis pregnancy center and has shared the testimony of Christ throughout her community and abroad. 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.
She says the nudging of the Holy Spirit prompted her to write Devotions from the Torah. “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!”
Her greatest fear is that she will inaccurately teach the Word of God. She has several trusted teachers and her Pastor who is fluent in Greek and Hebrew and has at least three doctorates in theology read every book before she submits it for the sole purpose of making sure that it is biblically sound.
She is currently writing an in depth, verse by verse, Bible Study on the book of Romans for Kids, as she is 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. She is also a speaker… She loves the opportunities that the Lord gives her to vocally share His Word with others. Her hope is that the Lord will allow 2014 to continue with these opportunities as well.
