And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 1 John 1:4
It is my pleasure today to write to you about my new devotional journal, God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea, which was just released from Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. It is my first book, so I wanted to take advantage of this monthly feature of Write Moments with God to showcase it. I’m very pleased to be giving away a copy or two to one of you. More about that at the end of the post.
The Lord is faithful. Our timing and God’s time aren’t always the same, but we know God’s time is perfect. And He hears our prayers. Recently I stumbled across an old journal with an entry from 1979. In a written prayer, I said to the Lord I wanted to write a book that was relevant and encouraging and that would point others to the heart of God. I believe that the Lord put that desire in my heart, and that He has brought it to pass. God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea is a realization of that desire. To me, that is exciting.
The devotionals arrive!
God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea is compiled of 52 one page meditations, followed by suggested Scriptures for additional reading, questions for reflection and journaling, a prayer, a “sweet tea moment of the day”, and a prayer focus.
Elizabeth Musser, award winning Christian writer and author of The Swan House, says “Use it as a wonderful way to start the day off right—with God’s Word and friendly counsel from a woman whose soul knows.”
Ann Tatlock, two-time Christy award winner and author of Sweet Mercy, says it’s a “wonderful mix of spiritual insights and practical applications”.
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. This is a deeply personal collection of devotions designed to help readers experience new mercies every day.
I feel confident that if you enjoy Write Moments with God, you will love God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea: Experiencing God in the Midst of Everyday Moments.
