Publisher's Description

Author Bio

Lydia Brownback (MAR, Westminster Theological Seminary) serves as a senior editor at Crossway in Wheaton, Illinois, and an author and speaker at women’s conferences around the world. Lydia previously served as writer in residence for Alistair Begg and as producer of the Bible Study Hour radio program with James Montgomery Boice.


Of all the virtues, contentment most eludes our culture. Companies build business plans on enticing customers to want more. To get elected, politicians hawk discontent, and women’s magazines glorify other women’s air-brushed perfect face and body to make us unsatisfied with our own.

However, God intends for us to be content. In Contentment: A Godly Woman’s 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,

    My 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.

    This 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!

    This 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.
