For many families, Thanksgiving Day is one of those rare occasions when multiple generations gather together in one place. Why is a holiday a good time to have a conversation about family health? What can we learn from our family members' health history? What common diseases and conditions run in families? On Thursday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Dr. Lina Abujamra, Pediatric ER doctor and Founder of Living with Power Ministries speaks about family health history and how we can learn much from each other.
Active gratitude is a deterrent to despair, discouragement, and depression. It can move us from unbearable emotions to a new way of life. Rather than focusing on mental suffering, we can continually transform it with gratitude, constantly applying God’s Word. Instead of being controlled by ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts, per Dr. Daniel Amen), we can live in grateful joy! On Thursday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, licensed professional counselor, Marti Wibbels helps us realize that rather than being led by these automatic negative thoughts (or emotions), we can apply biblical principles to each of our concerns, confident in our Good Shepherd's promises.
