Ken is a retired elder in the church of the nazarene. His retirement was forced on him by Parkinson's Disease. PD is a neurodegenerative disease for which there is no cure and few ways to slow its progress.
This is a fairly short book that Ken used to provide some important insights about facing life's biggest trials. The stories that Ken share include a lot of humor. This is not a depressing book at all. Many will find it helpful if you or loved ones are going through debilitating circumstances. I think many pastors or counselors might find it helpful for people who are in similar circumstances.
