Buying into the lie of "I can only be happy if..." guarantees a frustrated existence. But God desires something far better for his daughters. This convenient On-the-Go Devotional will direct you away from empty distractions and toward what you really long for: a satisfaction that never fades.
Lydia Brownback (MAR, Westminster Theological Seminary) is the author of several books and a speaker at womens conferences internationally. When time allows, Lydia blogs at lydiabrownback.com. She has served as director of editorial for Crossways Book Division; writer-in-residence for Reverend Alistair Begg; and broadcast media manager for Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, where she produced The Bible Study Hour radio program with James Montgomery Boice. Some of Lydia's books include the On-the-Go Devotional series as well as A Woman's Wisdom: How the Book of Proverbs Speaks to Everything.
However, God intends for us to be content. In Contentment: A Godly Womans Adornment, Lydia Brownback takes us on a daily walk in scripture to help us find contentment, which she says is synonymous with happiness. Each of her thirty-two short, two-to-three page devotionals introduces a scriptural passage, such as Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, Matthew 13:45-46, and I Timothy 6:6-8. Brownback then applies them to our lives in a friendly, straightforward manner. Though brief, they are not trite, shallow, or silly.
In fact, Contentment impressed me with its depth. Brownback points the reader to the fact that sin destroys contentment and to the importance of immediate obedience. She offers the hope of contentment through seeking to find God as our all while acknowledging our pain and cultural temptations.
This little booklet would make an excellent personal devotional, a great gift, or a fine mother-daughter resource. -- Debbie W. Wilson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
SmileyCulbertson, NE4 Stars Out Of 5This product is a great read.January 24, 2011SmileyCulbertson, NEQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My friend and I, live thousands of miles apart. We both want a closer relationship with Christ. I called her and asked if she wanted to do a devotional together, and she said yes, so I purchased this book. While we haven't done more than two yet, we have both enjoyed the two that we have done. It brings up things that I haven't thought about, and the quick read devotinals help me to be able to get them done in 15-20 minutes. Which is immportant having a three year old and a new born at home. The devotinals have been great.
Constance Bankson5 Stars Out Of 5August 3, 2008Constance BanksonThis is a great little book! The chapters are short, but loaded with biblical ideas. Lydia Brownback is a very wise woman and has much insight on becoming content. I recommend this book enthusiastically!
Pat Chadwick5 Stars Out Of 5April 25, 2008Pat ChadwickThis is a wonderful devotional for women on a topic close to our hearts. Happiness often alludes us because we want something more in life. Sometimes it is hard to be like the Apostle Paul, being "content in every circumstance" (Philippians 4:11). This little devotional helps you to focus on the good things God has done in your life and to be grateful. It is biblically sound and the author shares wisdom that many women today need to not only hear but absorb.
