We live in a dangerous world, with the daily threat of harm. Depression and suicide are at an all-time high. We're bombarded with empty promises of contentment if we just do some things or have some things. But it's obvious from observing high-profile celebrities who seem to have it all that the temporary things of this world will never satisfy us; God is the only true source of contentment. In author Joan Smith's newly released debut, 'Got Contentment? Thirty Days to a More Contented Life' (paperback), readers will learn the path to contentment through the path mapped out by Jesus in the Beatitudes.
Says Smith, "This book takes us back to one of the first and most important messages of Jesus. His teaching was then and is now revolutionary. He reminds us to trust God, allowing Him to change our hearts and lead us to contentment instead of just trying to appear together on the outside."
Serving as the teaching director of Community Bible Study in Kentucky and Georgia for 13 years has given the author insight into and an understanding of God's Word. It was through her studies of the Beatitudes she discovered a hidden treasure of life-changing information that she believes is still relevant today. "It s my prayer you'll examine one nugget of this treasure every day and discover for yourself the only true pathway to contentment!" she says.
