A Content Heart Bible Study (Digital)

A discontent heart isn't just one that says "gimme." It's one that starts with greed, selfishness, and jealousy, and ends in whining, conflict, bitterness, and even shame. The only way to combat discontent in your family's hearts is for God's Word to change them.

In our A Content Heart study, we look to the Bible to do just that! This contentment Bible study for kids and families:

  • Teaches what biblical contentment looks and feels like
  • Shows how and why to be content, as well as how to avoid being consumed by greed or materialism
  • Explains how being thankful in all circumstances is honoring to God
  • Helps parents teach contentment from a biblical perspective

You will love how much more peaceful and joyful your family is when they understand biblical contentment!

Nothing will be mailed to you as this is a digital product. (The Bible study fun pack does NOT come with the digital files.) You can print off the file and staple it together. We like to use fun duct tape to secure the staples and keep them from poking.

If you'd like a softcover version, instead of digital, please click here.


The digital version of our Bible studies is available in 4 age levels and is meant to be done individually, then discussed together as a family. Each lesson has a consistent key truth, key Scripture, and central theme, no matter what age level your kids are working in. (More on our Family Bible Study Model HERE)

Due to the extensive use of the "fun pack" stickers in the Pre-K Bible study, it is NOT available in digital format. We recommend you use the Primary level with this age group or purchase the softcover version.

There is no scripture written out in our studies, only references. When it comes to growing faith, it's crucial that kids look up passages in the Bible for themselves and our studies are written to help them do that!

We study and write using ESV, as well as a variety of translations. Special attention has been given to make sure kids can answer questions regardless of the translation they are using.

We believe that the Bible is the absolute authority in matters of faith and practice. It's 100% true, with no exceptions or figurative sections. We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of Scripture; in one God eternally existing in three Persons; in the creation of all things, including man, as the direct act of God; in eternally secure salvation by grace through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the incarnation and virgin birth of Christ, and in His bodily resurrection; in the personal, bodily, premillennial return of the Lord Jesus Christ and His millennial reign on earth.

This is by far the most common question we get around here. Please check out this video. I'll show you the differences between the levels and walk you through how to use them as a family!

If you are buying digital, you may make as many copies for your own family as needed. It is intended for single-family use only.

We highly encourage you to make sure that each child can participate by having their own copy on their own level. You can learn more about why in this video.

If you plan to share with people outside of your home (like a group, co-op, church, etc.), you will need a site license to do so. Those can be found on our digital site license page.

Each Bible study is a slightly different length, ranging from 20 lessons to 28 lessons. We suggest doing one lesson a day. Most kids find that it takes about 15 minutes a day.

Gets right to the heart

This Bible study was just what we needed. It encouraged open & honest conversations with my kids, and was written in such an understandable way with great questions to help guide them through each lesson.

Julie fournier

I'm doing it with my 6 year old, and the lessons are short to keep his attention. The words used are simple yet powerful to make sense to his understanding. There are Bible verses to look at (read) and make him learn about it. We love it - it's perfect!

A Content Heart

Having a content heart is hard for adults these days. Let alone a child. This lesson is a great reminder for all of us.

Love, love, love!

We purchased the digital version and it has been amazing. Our family (mom, step dad, 17 year old son and 7 year old son) does the study together. The lessons are clear and concise and use ideas that our 7 year old understands. I cannot wait to get more studies!

Our whole family has been doing the study. We've all been loving it!

Perfect for my kids

This was a great study for my kids. (We are a homeschool family and my kids are 1, 6, 9, 10, and 12. I used the primary and junior ages. I am moving my oldest up to the youth for the Christmas study that I just ordered. My 1 year old obviously didn't participate LOL.)
I timed it so that we would finish this right before Thanksgiving and Christmas since that seems to be a very "give me" time of year! It wasn't a super deep study, but it was perfect for what my kids needed and I loved that they were looking up scripture on their own. They did each day by themselves (except for my 6 year old) and then we came together to go over it. I would definitely recommend this for other families looking to teach their kids about studying the Bible. My only "complaint" is that the parent guide could be a little deeper, but I realize that's not the purpose of this study. Overall I was very pleased! As we ended, we talked about the differences in NEEDS and WANTS. It really clicked with my kids and they will now correct me when I say I need something! Ha!

Kids are enjoying it!

We're half way through the study together. The kids have been engaging with it well and it's started some great conversations. Thank you!!

Perfect November Study!

We are only halfway through this study and it's amazing! Another beautiful, thought-provoking study from Not Consumed. My teenage son came to me and said "Mom! The versed they had us look up today were really good! Like, fantastic!" This is a kid who is deep in the word in a Leadership program in not only our church, but surrounding states, where kids learn to disciple and share the gospel and are being trained to be leaders. His youth pastor has them memorize entire books of the bible. So, for him to say it's amazing, and makes him think and challenges him, is amazing and wonderful and we will just keep on doing your studies! Thank you so much, Kim & team!!

A Content Heart

After my dear daddy passed away in 2020 and I received inheritance money, I was able to use some of that money to invest in the spiritual life of my family and purchase many studies from Not Consumed. A Content Heart was the first study we did together and I absolutely loved how all of us were learning the same principles and focusing on the same verses together. The children (ages 11, 13, 15, 17) were very focused each morning during their quiet time and then we would come together during family time for review and discussion. It is a wonderful and productive way to begin each day! Much love and thanks to the Not Consumed team for producing high-quality, thought-provoking Christian materials that are such a huge blessing to families!
