Meet Rose Chandler Johnson

I'm pleased to introduce you to Rose Chandler Johnson, the author of a sweet little devotional.

Here is a bit about the book:

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.

If your like me, you may wonder who writes a devotional and why they write them. I'm curious that way. Well I don't know about other authors, but here is what Rose says:

Why did you write a devotional?
When I decided to make Jesus the Lord of my life, in 1977, I starting reading a devotional every morning. It was just what I needed to help me focus and structure my time. I’ve incorporated devotional reading in my quiet times with God for decades. I think most people could benefit from that format. the fact that I wrote a devotional comes back to my desire to be relevant and encouraging.

Who do you want to reach with your book? Which audience?
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. Reviewers have stated it’s for anyone seeking God’s peace and a closer relationship with Him. I’m happy that men and couples are enjoying it as well. 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 journaling and reflection, suggested scriptures for further reading, a prayer, a sweet tea moment (thought for the day), and a prayer focus. Those extra helps allow the reader to use this as a personal or group study.

I invite you to take advantage of the “Look Inside” feature on Amazon to see the table of contents and read several of the devotions.
