A mini-book written with understanding on the practical challenges of living with Parkinson’s Disease written by one diagnosed with Young Onset PD.

This mini-book sensitively explains how the gospel message brings joy, help, and courage, and directs us to find our hope, not in therapies that may relieve or delay symptoms, or even in an eventual cure, but in the solid and lasting promises of our heavenly Father.
