AT THE MENTION of books John W. Nichols ears perk up, he gets a spine-tingling sensation (no pun intended), and he can’t help but find out what read is on discussion. With his first computer at twelve years of age, John began writing, and he is an avid reader, always with a stack of books by his bedside and listening to as many audiobooks as possible whenever working on a task that doesn’t require much thinking. When Jesus saved him at the age of twenty, John started reading the best book you could ever read, over and over, recognizing the Holy Bible as a letter from the Creator of all things.
He thought one day (when he was old) he might write a book for God. But God thought he should write something sooner, and told John in a prayer session on January 1st, 2016 to write his book. Since then John has written several drafts of books and completed GOD is HERE: Finding God in the Pain of a Broken World, it’s accompanying workbook, and the devotional you are reading about now.
In other prayer sessions, God called John to preach His Word, seek His face, and go into the land He would show Him. He and his wife, Trinna, and three children, are following this call to show the love of Christ to the world. This was first exhibited teaching and leading worship in their local church, then by working with people with disabilities, then going to preach at the state prison, loving their neighborhood community, reaching out to women and children enslaved in human trafficking, and now making disciples of Jesus, who make disciples, who make disciples.
When John caught a glimpse of how God saw him, everything changed, and he has since sought to show others this good news. He’s recognized most people, Christian or not, feel unfulfilled and don’t know their life’s purpose. This has led John to help people find their calling and have a life of adventure with God.
