About the Author
Kenny Vaughan is a husband, a father of three, a world-class
athlete, and a servant of Jesus Christ. Over the years, he has been
featured in a number of interviews with national media, inspiring
tens of thousands across the country. Growing up, Kenny learned to
waterski, to hunt and fish, to understand God's perfect love, and
to honor God, country, and family. For fifteen years, he chased his
dream of winning the national waterski long-jump championship, and,
bolstered by the scriptures scrawled on his ski tow-rope handles,
he achieved his dream against all odds. Vaughan took the scriptures
that inspired him that day and had them inscribed on dog tags.
Kenny founded Shields of Strength, a company that distributes
inspirational scripture engraved upon dog tags and other jewelry.
The necklaces have become popular with professional and aspiring
athletes--including Olympians, military personnel, law enforcement,
students, and adults from all walks of life who find encouragement
in scripture to face life's challenges. Vaughan's first book,
Shields of Strength: One Man's Victory over Fear and What It Has
Meant for America, was published in 2010 by Brown Books. The Right
Fight: How to Live a Loving Life turns its focus to fear's polar
opposite: pure, unselfish love for others. Kenny Vaughan lives in
Southeast Texas, near Beaumont, with Tammie, the love of his life,
and their three children.
