Sweet Like Jasmine
Finding Identity in a Culture of Loneliness
A journey of family secrets, finding true worth, and discovering how brokenness is made beautiful, Sweet Like Jasmine is a celebration of what it really means to belong.
Growing up as a Chinese American daughter of a mail-order bride and a busboy working in San Francisco Chinatown, Bonnie Gray had never truly felt beautiful or beloved. She had built her life to look pleasant and ordinary, with a wonderful husband, two amazing boys, and a thriving career. But despite these blessings, she still felt the tugging emptiness of a missing piece.
At 39, a long-forgotten birth certificate in an old file cabinet sparked a curiosity Bonnie couldn’t ignore. Determined to uncover family secrets and understand the home she was born into, Bonnie embarked on a journey that would leave her forever changed. Returning to the culture, places, and stories that shaped her, her search led her to soul-shaking discoveries about her identity, human kindness, and what it truly means to be loved.
Sweet Like Jasmine is a profoundly moving account of how God uses our unique and broken stories to create a beautiful mosaic of His love, one life at a time.
