Contentment is "feeling or manifesting satisfaction with one's possessions, status, or situation." Feeling satisfaction sounds like a good goal. And manifesting it would be a good testimony. But how do we get it? The Secret of Contentment guides us through the Bible to find how we can be content by faith, in every circumstance and relationship, with who we are, and without worrying. It shows us what to do with the "what ifs," "if onlys," and "whys" of life. It shows us how to be content with God's will.
