1. This sounds like a good one, one I should look into. We did some upgrades on our home this summer — painting the girls’ rooms, a new bedroom set for us — and I did a fair amount of shopping along with that. I have always hated shopping, but this was FUN. I find myself in a shopping mindset now entirely too much — looking for STUFF. Wanting. I have noticed the change and don’t like it at all — it’s a bad habit of mind.

  2. I have a love/hate relationship with books about contentment. I am NOT content. I love reading books on the topic and feel convicted. And then, as you say, I feel the need to start back at the beginning and read it all over again (until I get it). This one sounds great.

  3. Somehow I missed this post. I can see how he lines up with your quote from Bonhoeffer. It’s very satisfying when the different authors we’re reading mesh together.

  4. I’m so glad to have stumbled across your post via 3-D Lessons for Life. I read “Margin” years ago and was greatly inspired then. I MUST pick up “Contentment” for this season in my life. I am a newly-emptied nester with four sons having learned in our school-based home. I loved our homeschooling years, but I’m ready for God to show me His plan for this next season. Thank you for your review!
