After being diagnosed with a chronic disease, its normal to react at first with anger, grief, depression, and withdrawal, but whats next?
Wendall "Windy" Woodall faced that question at age 49 when a doctor told him that he had young onset Parkinsons disease. Woodall writes, "I have made a decision ... . I can face the future with sadness, despair, and a crippling sense of hopelessness, or I can choose to see each day as a gift that I dare not squander nor take for granted."
Although Woodall doesnt move as swiftly as he did before, hes pushing ahead with honesty, humor, and openness. In Shuffle: A Way Forward, Whatever the Challenge, he shares warm and self-deprecating memories about his own weaknesses and personal growth, even before his diagnosis. He describes his medical journey and his approach to staying as healthy as he can, and he shares how his familys humor has helped him to cope. With biblical insight, he explains how hes moving forward-believing that there is yet life to be lived-and striving to inspire others to shuffle toward hope, no matter what challenges life may bring.
