This is by far one of the most beautiful devotionals I’ve ever read. God, Me and Sweet Iced Tea written by Rose Chandler Johnson is a true delight. Each devotional delivers a warm and thoughtful message that inspires a deep connection to the heart of God. Every reading is absolutely useful; especially the questions and prayers that encourage self-reflection and journaling.

Read a little each day a savor over it. Meditate upon it. Rose puts her heart in this book of devotions that are done in a sweet way but packed with God’s word.

In God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea, Rose Chandler Johnson is a gracious hostess serving up an encouraging word--Southern style. These simply succinct daily devotions are flavored just right to provide a refreshing and sweet word of spiritual insight. I particularly enjoyed her thought for the day and her prayer focus, which prompted me to pray for people who might not have normally crossed my mind. I'd like to keep a copy on my front porch, with a hope that I can serve it up with a pitcher of sweet ...more

Okay, there's a lot of excellent devotionals out there, several of which I've used, but there's something about God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea by Rose Chandler Johnson that just clicks with me. These meditative thoughts have blossomed out of her personal walk over the years, and Rose writes with honesty from a depth of experience and maturity.

The subtitle, Experiencing God in the Midst of Everyday Moments, couldn't be more descriptive. Rose

Have you ever read devotionals and could feel the heart of the author? This is how it was for me reading Rose Johnson’s devotional God, Me and Sweet Ice Tea. Rose has written a sweet book of devotions that reflect on scripture from God’s Word. Each devotion is about a different scripture, they are very short, it only takes a few minutes to read each one. After each devotion you will find a collection of scripture if you want to read more on the topic for that day. There a

This book feels like author Rose Johnson welcomes you right into her kitchen for a refreshing glass of sweet iced tea while you chat together. Her collection of short devotionals are given with a warm friendliness and transparency. Each devotional includes a verse, journal questions, a daily thought, suggested Bible reading and a prayer. Also included is a prayer focus--a suggestion for prayer that connects with that day's devotional topic.

Not too many devotionals I have read lately actually speak to me, I’ve reviewed so many book, but this book does. I really clicked with the author’s style. Great title and great insight with just the right scripture passage to meditate on and a strong dose of authenticity and application from the author. She also includes additional related scripture passages, journaling options, a prayer and thought for the day.

I probably would have rated this one higher if I had realized before I opened it that it was a daily devotional book. That's not what I was looking for, so it disappointed just a little, HOWEVER, I think if you used it as intended (ie, as a guide for your personal devotions/Bible Study...including looking at the scripture at the end of the chapters and journaling about the study questions) it would be a great spiritual blessing and catalyst for growth.
Let me start by saying that the title drew me in right away because sweet iced tea is one of my favorite things. I love the cover also - a happy yellow with a glass of icy sweet tea with a lemon - makes you think of a bright sunny summer day! Love it! And I loved that the first devotional starts with "O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusts in him! Psalm 34:8 NKJV". That's a great start for a book that has sweet tea on the cover. :)

Each chapter starts with a script

Recommends it for: Christians - middle school up to adults
I liked this devotional. It is NOT a deep study by any means. It is more like the daily bread but with daily questions for journaling. It would be really good for a newer Christian or someone looking for a change, something light and not in depth. Most days that I did this study I did more than one day. I should have completed the study much faster but many days I was just not motivated to read it.

Some of the topics were very good reminders and had things that made me think. Some days I wrote a

When I read Rose Chandler Johnson's "God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea: Experiencing God in the Midst of Everyday Moments," I was drawn in by three key pieces: her honesty about her struggles, her love of God and her knowledge of His Word, and the set up of the book itself.
Rose puts it all out there so her readers can see that she too has struggled with many things in her life. Through her struggles, she has grown personally and in her journey with God. I believe that these hard times and the growth

Devotionals are wonderful companion books for your Bible, or wonderful to have available for the times you are waiting. In her new devotional, "God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea," Rose Chandler Johnson helps her readers to "experience God in the midst of everyday moments."

This book has a great title. It lets readers have a glimpse of what is inside. The book is about each person's relationship with God in everyday settings. Just as an iced cold glass of iced tea quenches thirst, studying God's Word qu

God, Me & Sweet Tea by Rose Chandler Johnson is an encouraging and thoughtful devotional. Designed to encourage and impact believers from novice to elderly saint. More than reading a short thought and a scripture God, Me & Sweet Tea helps you set time aside to commune with Jesus. Each entry shares insights on a key verse that impacted her life. This is followed by two questions. One is a journaling question to help you apply everyday things to the scripture. The second question challenge ...more

I LOVE devotionals. I have read a lot of devotionals. Im picky when it comes to my devotionals. I want something that will challenge me and encourage me and teach me. I want something that will draw me closer to God and give me a deeper desire for His Word. God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea fits the bill perfectly!

God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea by Rose Chandler Johnson, a sweet and refreshing devotional is a blessing from the first page. As a devotional writer and Bible study leader, I need a devotional book that helps me see scriptures in a new light. I was not disappointed.

Each day’s reading is based in a personal experience of the author, down-to-earth, and profound in their simplicity. The readings reveal the sincere needs of the writer’s heart in words that any believer can relate to. The reading is fo

I was attracted to this because I often refer to my own time with God in the mornings as "God and me and a cup of tea." But mine is spiced chai latte Hey, I'm a northern gal and while I like my tea sweet - I also like it hot and combined with other spices.

This devotional is also unusual because I'm still savoring it and enjoying it and it's not like a normal book to read and review where I was able to finish it on time. Well, I could have, because the chapters are short and, yes, sweet. Rushing

“God, Me, & Sweet Iced Tea;” what a captivating title! I enjoyed reading each devotional mixed with spiritual truths and insights born out of Rose Johnson’s personal experiences and faith journey.

All the devotions were relevant to my life and to my faith walk with God. During one of my rare sleepless nights, imagine my astonishment when I picked up Rose’s book and opened it to the devotion where I had left off, “He Gives Sleep to His Beloved.” Indeed, reading this devotion and all others spo

This devotional was well-written and had some great points that could speak to people from all walks of life. Each devotional was short, so it was easy to go through. However, I also enjoyed how, unlike some devotionals that only have one small verse to go with each day's devotion, this book had more than just a few quick optional verses to go with each day's reading. I appreciated that. Not only does the author give us something interesting and relatable to read, but she also encourages us to d ...more

If your desire is to draw closer to God and find Him in the ordinary, everyday moments of life, this is a must-read.

Rose brings Scripture to a practical and conversational level. If you do, indeed, just want a moment to sit down with a cold glass of iced tea (or whatever!) and talk to God for a bit, this book is a good help in that direction. I especially liked the journaling prompts. The story about her son in Iraq was particularly touching.

I really enjoyed this devotional. There were great personal stories by the author that was mixed with Biblical stories. I also like that she gave the reader questions to go back and reflect on in the reading. This is a simple, but wonderful devotional that helps the reader to reflect on Biblical passages, but also their own life.
