“It was while I kept running past my rocking chair and my quiet place that God kept reminding me of Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God”. About that time I started reading Tea Lovers DTG. Immediately, I felt God nudging me to feast on and ponder each short devotion and soak in the nurturing and refreshing comments as it drew me back closer to God.” ~ Jan Wright, Charlotte, NC
