One of Rolling Stone Magazine's 25 Greatest Rock Memoirs of All Time One of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2012 As one of the greatest rock icons of all time, Gregg Allman has lived it all and then some. Now he tells the unflinching story of his life, offering the definitive account of the legendary Allman Brothers Band. From run-ins with the law to meeting girls on the road to experimenting with drugs, Gregg holds nothing back, while also speaking, for the first time, about the painful deaths of his brother, Duane, and bassist Berry Oakley. Describing the powerful impact that Duane's death had on him, Gregg explains how the band's decision to persevere came with a heavy price—for the band and for Gregg—as he fought a battle with substance abuse that led him to rehab eleven times before he finally cleaned up for good. Capturing the Allman Brothers' ongoing, triumphant resurgence, My Cross to Bear is an honest, fascinating glimpse inside one of the most beloved and notorious bands in the history of rock music.

Would I Really Marry My Cat

Would I Really Marry My Cat

“Is this my cross to bear?” my friend asked, her voice shrinking with the concession that her life would forevermore stagnate in pain, sorrow, and regret. I thought to myself, Is it Lord? Is this her cross to bear?

Could it be that our delusions of the perfect life expose disillusion with our perfect God? K.D. Stewart poses that and other thought-provoking questions in Would I Really Marry My Cat?!a fresh and compelling look at trusting God when His sovereignty confronts our self-focused ambition, hopes, and hurts. A raw and sometimes ridiculous exploration of faith, Would I Really Marry My Cat?! probes this simple yet profound truth: Life as a Christ-follower is not always a charmed life. It is a strategically-designed, intentionally-lived testimony of Gods trustworthiness regardless of ones circumstances. K.D. long dreamed of becoming a wife and a mom. One night her prince finally came. He looked at her with kind, devoted eyes and said, Marry me. And she gleefully accepted his proposaleven though she knew he was a cat! It was easy for her to look past the whiskers and the tail. What mattered most was, for the first time in a long time, she experienced satisfaction deep within her heart. Then K.D. woke up and the morning light exposed something dark deep within her souldisappointment in God and discontentment with the life He had given her. Out of this season of struggle, K.D. has drawn a series of stories, reflections, and prayers that will encourage, challenge, and inspire you to find joy-filled confidence in the God who created you and the life He has given you, even when it looks nothing like the life of your dreams.

This book is a collection of short stories, poems, and inspirational materials from memories of seventy years of contact with the Spirit of God. It contains stories of my encounter and others coming to the realization of someone much bigger than we are wanting a relationship. It also has stories about how we make mistakes and how God uses friends and family members to guide, teach, and move us in a direction that he wants us to go or something he wants us to do. This book tells not only of the hard works involved in the dealing with Godly things but also the joy and sometimes the funny things people do as they journey through life.

September 6th, 2006 was supposed to be just another day. Not for Scott Chivinski, falling forty feet and being found initially dead, then with injuries that no one expected him to recover from. The Hand of God in numerous unexplainable miracles compels this to be told. There is more than hope for those that believe. While we will never totally understand how, God does take all things and make them perfect. For His Glory (Rom 8:28) I am His www.rscottish.blogspot.com

On March 1, 2010, Elizabeth Hugo’s life changed dramatically when her ninety-two-year-old father, Victor Mazzullo, moved into her home. Blind, diabetic, and suffering from dementia, her papa required total care for his every need. As her daily life drastically transformed, Elizabeth soon realized she would have to rely not only on herself, but also on her faith as she learned to listen for God’s guidance. In her inspirational memoir, Elizabeth shares poignant anecdotes and applicable Scriptures that provide insight into the challenges, joys, and frustrations that accompanied her spiritual journey caring for her father in his final years. As her role shifted from daughter to primary caregiver, Elizabeth recalls how she dealt with the subsequent emotional impact, realized her limitations, accepted help from others, and relied on prayer for strength. Buoyed through her struggles by her faith, Elizabeth learned how to walk through each day knowing she was just as needy and dependent on her “Papa” God for His love as her father was on her for his care. Written in devotional form, Life Lessons from My “Papa” shares practical tips, seasoned advice, and compassionate wisdom for any caregiver desiring inspiration.
