God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea: Experiencing God in the Midst of Everyday Moments

Today is the first Monday of the month--the day I feature a Christian author and give away a book. 

I'm taking the liberty of grabbing the spotlight since I want to give away a copy of my devotional journal, God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea:  Experiencing God in the Midst of Everyday Moments.  I hope you don’t mind.  It's a joy for me to get this devotional into readers hands.

But first, let me say, I unintentionally skipped a week on Write Moments with God because I had so much happening at home—new grandbaby, 3 major dinner gatherings, overnight guests, and a birthday dinner party for my youngest child, Robbie, who just celebrated his 18th birthday. 
I’m happy to be back with you today. I appreciate you so much, and hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and loved ones. 

Since most of you already know about me and my writing journey, just let me tell you a little about God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea:  Experiencing God in the Midst of Everyday Moments.  

God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea is uniquely appropriate for working mothers, but it’s also for anyone who wants to put their Christianity into practice in their everyday moments and go deeper into God’s Word.  I’ve received wonderful testimonies from men as well as couples who are reading God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea and finding it inspirational and helpful in their own spiritual journey.   As Tiffany Colter said, this devotional is simple enough for the newest believer, yet deep enough to make a life-long Christian feel challenged to go higher.  

There are 52 devotions followed by questions for consideration and space to write your thoughts, suggested scriptures for further reading, a prayer, a sweet tea moment (thought for the day), and a prayer focus.  These extra helps allow the reader to go beyond reflection and meditation to make this devotional more meaningful as a personal or small group study. 

Most of the 52 devotions are engaging personal stories which relate everyday life to God’s Word.   You will find many of these devotions  touch your heart and mind in such a way that they stay with you as you go about your day.

Some people have asked: What’s the significance of “sweet iced tea”?  Besides the fact that I am a true fan of sweet iced tea, let me share this summary from the back cover which better explains the concept. 
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. Whether
purchased as a personal resource or given as a heartfelt gift, God, Me,
and Sweet Iced Tea will help readers develop a daily habit of turning to
God in those quiet moments of reflection.
