Marketta Gregory never meant to be a columnist. \x34I trained to be a newspaper reporter -- one who tried to her best to be objective. I covered religion for a few years and felt like it was the best job a curious woman like me could ever have. Every day I got to listen as people told me about the things that were most important to them, the things that were sacred. But the newspaper industry was changing and few papers could afford to have an army of speciality reporters. So, I moved to cover the suburbs where, as luck would have it, they have plenty of religion, too. Eventually, children came into the picture. One by birth and another two months later by foster care/adoption. I struggled to chase breaking news and be home at a decent hour, so I made the move to what we journalists call the dark side: I took a job in public relations. (Don't worry. I work for a great non-profit, so it's not dark at all.) When I gave my notice at the Rochester (NY) Democrat and Chronicle, the executive editor asked me to consider writing a column on a freelance basis. She didn't want the newspaper to lose touch with its religious sources, and she still wanted consistent faith coverage. I was terrified. It took me about 10 months to get back to her with a solid plan and some sample columns. And so it began, this journey of opening up my heart to strangers.\x34

“Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” — Psalm 124:8



Can you trust God — maker of heaven and earth — with your finances? With your well-being?

That’s the central question in the final section of Satisfied: Discovering Contentment in a World of Consumption.

I think  it’s an incredibly important question. And I think it’s one we have to ask often.

So, any last comments on the book? What will you remember most from this study?

Thank you so much for reading with us and please join us March 25 for a chat with Jeff Manion.

Be blessed!
