Summary

Finding contentment when life lets you down.

Life doesn't always go the way we hope it will. Whether it's singleness, childlessness, or some other big disappointment, it's hard to be content when life lets us down. Author Jennie Pollock knows what it's like to feel discontent. With warmth and honesty, she answers common doubts that arise when life doesn't go the way we had hoped: Is God good? Is he enough? Is he worth it? 

She walks listeners through the process of taking our eyes off the things we wish we had and instead enjoying the character of the God we do have - a God who is good, who meets all our needs, and whose promises are worth the wait.

Drawing on encouragements from the Bible and the stories of others, this book helps listeners to trust in God's plan for their lives and enjoy true contentment through a genuine conviction that Jesus is better than even our most keenly felt hopes and longings for this life.

Inspiring book, poor narrator

Content gave me a lot of comfort at a difficult crossroads. Narrator was not the best. Her reading did not sound natural or flow. But I would still recommend the audiobook. Maybe get another version too.
