Hello Friends! I’m Jennifer, the founder of Contentment Questing! I’m so glad you’re here!
Looking for More Contentment in Your Life?
If you are looking for more happiness and contentment in your life, ways to boost your productivity, ways to get more out of your family life, and grow closer to God, you are in the right place!
The Beginnings of Contentment Questing
When I started Contentment Questing back in 2017, I was at a place in my life where I was tired of being unhappy. I thought I should be happy because I had checked all the boxes that I thought I needed to, but something was still missing. So I set out on a quest to find my contentment and I started sharing what I learned on this blog.
Much to my surprise, people started reading it and following it! It scared me to death at first, but I kept digging into the personal development topics that I knew I needed to work on. I kept praying and trying to draw closer to God, and little by little, things started clicking into place.
Ready to Start Your Own Quest for Contentment?
If you’re a little scared to start your own journey; that’s ok. I’ve done every single step scared. From hitting publish on my first blog post, writing my first book, to publishing my online courses. It can be intimidating and confusing to know where to start when you are trying to go from unhappy and discontent to joyful and happy, living a life that you love.
It’s scary to start learning new things and dreaming bigger dreams! But that’s why I’m here – to help you along your own journey. I want to uplift and encourage you as well as break complicated and vague topics down into concrete steps.

Before I was a blogger, speaker, and author, I was a teacher. I taught high school science in grades 8-12. It was a small school district and I was half of the department. I taught 7 subjects in 3 years. Through that experience, I developed a love for teaching and encouraging as well as the skill of making complicated things with many steps seem simple. You just take them one step at a time.

Contentment Questing’s Growth
Speaking of starting, when I started this blog in 2017, I thought that no one would ever read it. And here we are at over 700,000 page views by over 300,000 people. Trust me, no one is more stunned than I am. Those numbers blow my mind.
At my heart, I’m a normal stay-at-home mom. I am married to the love of my life for the past 18 years. We have two amazing sons that we love very much. He works a corporate job. I do some writing work on the side and I do this.
What You Can Expect from Contentment Questing
I have poured my heart into this site because I know what it means to be on both sides of the fence when it comes to finding joy and contentment in your life while still managing to set goals, motivate yourself, and reach for what you really want. (Even when it scares you.) I know what it means to put your faith in God even when you don’t see where the path in front of you leads or maybe even why HE put you on that path in the first place.
Relying on God, trusting Him, and praying to Him have always been a part of my life and I don’t know how to show you how to be happy without Him. It’s like trying to build a house without a foundation.
At the same time, I also know that you need more than a “this worked for me!” approach. You need proven methods and techniques. When I write the posts that you see on the site, they are researched. You can tell that because I backlink to the sites that I got the information from. You will also find a good portion of my heart in them because becoming happier with your life is personal and you need someone that understands you and what you are currently going through.

Hello Friends! I’m LeAnn and I’m so glad you’re here!
Just like you, I am on an ongoing journey to find contentment in the moment, peace from within, grow closer to God, and foster nurturing relationships with friends and loved ones.
What started me on my search for contentment?
The first time came with the sudden passing of my maternal grandpa. He was the first of my grandparents to transition and it stirred a lot of suppressed general anxiety and depression.
While I had experienced the loss of other more distant relatives, this was the first major loss to my inner circle. It shook the foundation of life as I had known it. Right before me, there was first-hand experience that in an instant someone very close could be gone.
As the years went on, there were some work-related traumas that had a profound effect on my life as well. In fact, many of those times I didn’t think I would make it through, but deep within I knew that if I took mindful, nourishing steps in life, I would prevail.
I’m so honored to be asked to be a part of Contentment Questing to help you on your journey. After all, we’re walking one another home.
