A Conversation on Contentment in Marriage


I just finished my second ladies retreat at our cabin in North Carolina. It was all that I hoped for and more! The theme for this retreat was Contentment, which led Tom and I to have the following conversation today about contentment in marriage while we were driving through the mountains. This is one of my favorite parts of road trips with Tom; he talks and shares his wisdom with me. He says he has trouble putting his thoughts on paper, so I thought I would record, for your benefit, what a casual conversation with him is like. It begins after I asked him what contentment in marriage looks like.

  1. That was so interesting! Wonderful thoughts about contentment. I think you have to actively commit to contentment — intentionally pursue God’s truth that He’ll give you all you need.

    And yeah, I was struck by how curvy that road is. Where I live, it’s not like that at all!

      We are still at our cabin in NC. That road is going to the top of Beech Mountain–full of S curves. In Florida we don’t have roads like these either. Thank you for commenting and adding your thoughts on contentment. I appreciate you!
