"Contentment is a cultivated fruit, learned through study and practice. These daily readings refocus our attention off of ourselves . . . and onto the goodness and faithfulness of our God. It's a needed and helpful book, and I highly recommend it." --Melissa Kruger, Author, The Envy of Eve: Finding Contentment in a Covetous World; Women s Ministries Coordinator, Uptown Church, Charlotte, North Carolina
"Megan Hill comes to the rescue with a practical daily devotional full of how-to's and why-to's [and], more importantly . . . the 'who' of a daily relationship with Jesus Christ." --David Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary; Author, The Happy Christian and Christians Get Depressed Too

First, I felt like many of the examples or stories used to illustrate a devotional day were ones that I have heard before in sermon illustrations so I didn't find as much original content.
Second, I could feel the author's Reformed bent as the wording and attitude felt more religious than relational. That doesn't always happen with reformed authors but I think some of you might understand what I mean. Though she emphasized our depravity and need to rely on the Lord, I felt that her lessons leaned towards "do better" without as many personal tips or examples.
I agreed with Hill's points, I didn't feel that things were wrong but that it was more of a lecture than a helpful discipleship in contentment.
Pros would be: the format of 31-daily devotions. It is Biblically sound in as far as I read. It might just be what someone else enjoys.
This was one of 4 books I bought on the topic and after struggling with this one I moved on to "Choosing Contentment" by Jessica Mathisen. I immediately liked her book better. The things I noticed up front was that she had more scripture, more personal connection, and clearer tips or examples of things to try to help cultivate a contented heart. I also purchased but have not yet read "The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment" and "The Art of Divine Contentment." The last two books are more of books while the first two (including this one) are more of studies which is more specifically what I am looking for.
