exodus 1
Devotions From Exodus Part One is available in softcover for $12.95 or Kindle for $8.95, it is divided into 4 sections:
  • Moses Meets the I Am ~ Exodus chapters 1-6
  • The Plagues~ Exodus chapters 7-15:21
  • Entering the Wilderness ~Exodus 15:22-27 to chapter 19
  • The Giving of the Law ~ Exodus chapter 20
I have been going through the book of Exodus with my kids, so I actually started using Devotions From Exodus first. The devotions are written for older teens or adults. I read through the study and then relayed things to my kids during my study with them. It is recommended that you read the bible chapter first and then the devotion from the book that is related to it. During the devotions we learn meanings to names, and things people did that set them apart from others, thought questions, and a sample prayer that quotes scripture and uses topics covered in the devotion.
Nicole choses key things from each chapter and explains them very simply and uses coordinating scripture from throughout the bible for further study on each chapter of Exodus. She also relates topics to our modern way of life and gets you to thinking how you can examine your own heart and apply biblical characteristics to your life.
The devotional study looks at each plague and how they affected the hearts of the people. I have really enjoyed Nicole’s look into the hearts of these people and Pharaoh, she has brought up things that I hadn’t thought of in other studies of Exodus. The NASB is quoted throughout the studies and all the chapters I have completed have been very informative and biblical. I am looking forward to going back and studying Genesis when I am finished with Exodus.
Author Nicole Vaughn is the Children’s Ministry Director at Shiloh Baptist Church in Somerville, AL. She is the co-administrator of  CrossRoads Christian Academy. She is the founder of Proven Path Ministries. She has also lead 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.
