Greetings from Davalynn Spencer in unseasonably warm Colorado! It’s my pleasure today to visit with author Linda P. Kozar about her new devotional book, Sweet Tea for the Soul – Down-home Devotions to Comfort the Heart (DaySpring 2018).

Welcome Linda. Tell us a little about your book.

These devotions give a fresh look at life offering calming reminders of God’s grace, and a southern wink at our busy lives, reminding us why we are blessed.

What inspired you to write this book?

I love to start my day reading through the Bible and finding one thing to focus on. Sometimes, God narrows my attention in on a particular Scripture. Other times, I follow interesting rabbit trails. But regardless, I always wind up doing a bit of research and writing down my thoughts, which inevitably transform into devotions. This time with the Lord is essentially, my devotion time. So, I was surprised when a wonderful former editor of mine who works at a different publishing house, contacted me in May and wanted to introduce me to an editor at DaySpring who was looking for someone to write Southern-themed devotions with a touch of humor. I sent him some samples. They loved the samples, and offered me a contract. Then, in December, I was offered a contract to do another devotional, and I was happy to say yes. My daily time with the Lord turned into two books to share with others, and I could not feel more blessed. I thank God that He would be so tender toward me to consider me for this work. Read More →
