As this year rolls on, we find our nation faced with another lockdown, more worries, and less certainty of what the future may hold. In this issue of JOY! we share a stunning mental health feature, including many keys to overcome discouragement. As Christians we have the hope of the world within us, and in this month’s copy we empower you and encourage you to share this hope with others.
