We are so passionate about our nation’s, church’s, and family’s lack of contentment, that we filled two shows. This week is part one. We were going to leave it just one show, but then there was all this other info that we felt had to be added. I mean, we couldn’t just leave it like that unfinished, could we? It had to be better, in fact this show on contentment could never be good enough, right? We have to keep working to get it just right. I’m not sure we can get it done in just two shows…maybe we need three shows to get the topic on contentment JUST right…
