Contentment. We all seek it. We see it everywhere - TV, movies, product ads that promise us contentment if we will only _________. But what is true contentment? Paul, in his letter to the Philippians says that he has learned to be content in all circumstances. What about you? In this episode of Holy Hygge, Jamie is joined by author and speaker, Stacey Thacker. They talk about this 6th tenet of Hygge through the eyes of what true, Biblical contentment is and what it can offer us in this life.

"Hygge" (pronounced Hyoo-Guh) is a concept derived from Danish culture dating back generations. It is comprised of several major tenets including hospitality, atmosphere, well-being, and comfort (just to name a few). Independently, Hygge is not a "religious" or "Biblical" concept, but it prompts the question: can Hygge be implemented in a Biblical way? Can a concept like Hygge be set apart, or "made Holy." Author and speaker Jamie Erickson would argue, YES! In this limited series podcast, Jamie and a guest will walk through 7 of the core tenets of Hygge: what they are, how listeners can practically implement them in their homes, and most importantly, how each concept can inform the Christian life.
