Living a life of thanksgiving means appreciating life's events: from the minute to the fullest. Thanksgiving is not just the last Thursday of November, where we overindulge in rich food; rather, it should be a time for a specific purpose with an assignment to make a difference. This means every waking moment should be full of thanksgiving and gratitude. But why? And how?
As a passionate kingdom seeker, author Eunice Badaki talks about how our lives are given to us as a gift. We have been given great stewardship over our lives, and every action, word spoken, and decisions made will be accounted for before the lord, Jesus Christ. Christ gave up his life so that we could live; therefore, we should treat our life-and the lives of others-with the utmost respect.

She works with life's difficulties with a clear and focused mind and when the chips are down she picks them up one by one; being wise to weep when needed, laugh when needed and become angry when needed; in other words she accepts all those things and never denies them. She is the first and foremost to blame herself for her difficulties; with the knowledge that she, too, was a contributor; no matter how the dice are tossed. Behind the mask of her life are issues that are leading her on a downward spiral. It has been said, "Depression is a cry in the soul that something is missing." And many, many women experience that cry at one time or another to one degree or another. I bet no one knows she lives with a mental illness called Bi-Polar Disorder. She has finally decided she cannot deal with this on her own and she will "Give Her Silence a Voice..".....
