Renewing yourself by focusing your mind on God's goodness is a powerful way to bring joy and peace into our lives. We often forget the power of the small things in life, like a simple cherry-dipped cone from Dairy Queen, that can bring a smile to our faces. During Mental Health Awareness Month and AAPI Heritage Month, we can take the time to remember the small things that bring us peace and joy.

God's goodness is all around us, but it's up to us to take the time to recognize it and to take action on it. We can take the time to slow down and appreciate God's gifts, like the beauty of nature, the love of family, and the peace of a quiet moment. We can also take action to renew our spirit and emotions with God's promise from His Word and a practical soul care tip.

We can also take the time to read books that bring us peace and joy. Bonnie's book Sweet Like Jasmine, Finding Identity in a Culture of Loneliness, is a memoir about her journey to find her father. It explores 20 different areas of our true worth as God's beloved daughter. Reading books like this can help us to find peace and joy in our lives.
