Corey King was diagnosed with a chronic, incurable disease at age 47. Eight years later, Corey continues his story of fighting disability with humor, honesty, and realistic optimism. Walking with Parkinson chronicles Corey's journey from diagnosis through denial and acceptance and finally, to defiance. He believes that challenges are made to be overcome and that we all have a purpose, and he illustrates his belief with stories from his own life. Leavened with wisdom created by adversity and compassion learned from friends and family, Corey's story of finding faith, purpose, and peace in troubled circumstances is an uplifting reminder that we all have challenges and that we all have the power to choose our responses.Walking with Parkinson contains the complete text of Corey's first two books, Walking the Crooked Path and Stumbling Toward Victory. A third book-length section, "Seeking the Way Home", and an added introduction to the combined edition are also included. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Russell Newton.

This follow-up to Jeff Guinn's bestselling holiday favorites The Autobiography of Santa Claus and How Mrs. Claus Saved Christmas takes readers on a sleigh ride through the history of Christmas in America that lands smack-dab in 2006, as a new reality TV show threatens to destroy the true spirit of Christmas. This third installment in Jeff Guinn's bestselling Christmas Chronicles series finds Santa facing perhaps the biggest challenge of his career. As Santa himself relates in this delightful holiday read, the trouble began in 1841, when a Philadelphia merchant named J. W. Parkinson hired a neighbor to dress as Kris Kringle in order to lure shoppers into his dry-goods store. Much to Santa's chagrin, it's been pretty much downhill since. It seems everybody wants a piece of Christmas, and through the years it has gotten worse- to the point that not a Christmas can go by without phony Santas posing on street corners across the country. But when, in 2006, it's announced that a new reality TV show called The Great Santa Search will feature a competition to find the 'real' St. Nicholas, Santa knows it's time to step in! With all the rich historical detail and glorious Christmas cheer that made The Autobiography of Santa Claus and How Mrs. Claus Saved Christmas treasured family favorites, The Great Santa Search is destined to become yet another Christmas classic from Jeff Guinn.
