Book Review: God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea by Rose Chandler Johnson

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:

Rose Chandler Johnson writes, "your devotional time is a time for intimate conversation, like chatting with a friend as you sip a glass of tea or a cup of coffee."  This is also a perfect description for the book God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea.

This book is a collection of short devotionals.  Each devotional is written in a casual and warm tone.  Then there are suggested Bible verses to read, followed by journaling considerations, a prayer, Today's Sweet Tea Moment, and a prayer focus.  Although the devotions are short, they are thought provoking.

I really liked this book.  The author's writing is inviting and friendly, like a glass of iced tea and a chat with a friend over a kitchen table.  These devotions make great morning reading, and they also provide a nice pick-me-up during the day.

If you are seeking encouragement or inspiration, this is a book that you will enjoy reading and sharing with friends.
