God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea - by Rose Chandler Johnson

About the book:
God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea (Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, July 2013)

In the South, nothing is more refreshing than a glass of sweet iced tea. Nothing, that is, except experiencing God in those small, everyday moments.

God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea is a deeply personal collection of spiritual treasures designed to help readers experience new mercies each morning. Seasoned with insight and grace, this tender devotional points to the divine presence of God in everyday moments. God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea will help readers develop a daily habit of turning to God in those quiet moments of reflection.

My review:

I enjoyed this devotional that would be great for busy women who don't have a lot of time.  You could even do the devotion over multiple days  if you prefer, as the author suggests;  the important thing is just getting started.  The devotions started with a Scripture written out and were about a page; there were also usually quite a few Scripture verses to look up that pertained to the reading, along with a couple of journaling questions and space to write your answers. There's also a brief prayer, a main point to take away called a "sweet tea moment" and somebody else to pray for, such as children in need, which usually had something to do with the devotion.  I enjoyed the personal examples Rose gave from her own life, along with examples from literature.  She doesn't try to act like she's perfect, but shows what she's learned from her mistakes.  There was a lot of good Biblical advice for a new Christian or good reminders if you've been one a while.  I would definitely recommend this book!

I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
