Hey y’all! My name is Karley and I began this blog to journal what I am experiencing and learning as I live out my life following Jesus. I have always enjoyed writing and I began journaling about a two years ago when life started to get messy. Many friends and family members have since encouraged me to start a blog. Behold, the Secret of Being Content was born.

I remember reading in my Bible one night before bed and I came across a verse and God spoke to me in that very moment.

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:12-13

Ever since I read that verse, I have discovered that life is all about learning the secret to being content with our circumstances and growing in God. Every blog post is about my journey as I walk with Christ and what He is teaching me every day. Writing is so therapeutic to me, so I hope anyone who reads this blog enjoys reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

A little about me, I am an assistant wedding planner and a social media manager who enjoys drinking green tea and working out with my boyfriend, Jake. I am a lover of succulents, french fries, worship music, a good pair of Frye boots and a Free People shirt. I couldn’t live without my pup, Mallie, my curling iron, The Office and my chapstick. Lamentations 3: 22-24 are verses I remind myself of daily: Great is His faithfulness. I want to live every day staying true to myself and to my God. My prayer is that anyone who reads this blog is encouraged by my experiences and also strives to find contentment in Jesus.
