Giving a Voice to the Silence offers positive angles to the issue that faces those with mental illness. Living with Schizo-Affective Disorder and being able to share my experiences with others, is the best way I know how to pay it forward. Life can be difficult, my goal is to bring a bit of hope to a place where many feel there is none.

Do you believe in God's power?

How many of you believe in God giving us the knowledge we are going to need to help others?

I have a strong faith; I wouldn’t be where I am in this world with it. Things happen though that makes me wonder and make believe He does have plans for us.

Wednesday morning when I saw the brief news report of the car crash where a 17yo girl was killed I right away thought of my daughter’s friend. There is no reason for me to think of her, there is no reason to even suspect it. The name was not announced, only the minimal details. The thought bothered me, but the morning went on and I tried to put it out of my mind.

Then the call came, my thoughts were right – it was her. Amidst the sorrow and tears, I was totally taken back by the knowledge I was given. In talking with one of the guidance counselors, I shared with her the events of the morning – she told me, “God was preparing you for what was to come.”

Why was I entrusted with this? Why was I given this knowledge beforehand? It is an amazing amount of faith given to me by God – to watch over His children at this most difficult time in their lives.
