A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven by Corey Taylor Pdf

Slipknot and Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor's New York Times bestselling journey into the world of ghosts and the supernatural Corey Taylor has seen a lot of unbelievable things. However, many of his most incredible experiences might just shock you. For much of his life, the Grammy Award-winning singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour and New York Times bestselling author of Seven Deadly Sins has brushed up against the supernatural world. Those encounters impacted his own personal evolution just as much as headlining at Castle Donington in front of 100,000 people at Download Festival or debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Since growing up in Iowa, his own curiosity drew him into situations that would've sent most people screaming scared and running for the hills. He's ballsy enough to go into the darkness and deal with the consequences, though. As a result, he's seen ghosts up close and personal, whether while combing through an abandoned house in his native Iowa as a child or recording an album in the fabled Houdini Hollywood Hills mansion. He's also got the memories (and scars) to prove it. For some reason, he can't seem to shake these spectral stories, and that brings us to this little tome right here... At the same time, being an erudite, tattooed, modern Renaissance Man, he was never one for Sunday Service. Simply put, he's seen ghosts, but he hasn't seen Jesus. Taylor especially can't find a reason why people do the insane things they do in HIS name. That's where everything gets really interesting. His second book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven, compiles Taylor's most intimate, incredible, and insane moments with the supernatural. His memories are as vivid as they are vicious. As he recounts these stories, he questions the validity of religious belief systems and two-thousand-year-old dogma. As always, his rapid-fire writing, razor sharp sense of humor, unbridled honesty, and cozy anecdotes make quite the case for his point. You might end up believing him or not. That's up to you, of course. Either way, you're in for a hell of a ride.

Seven Deadly Sins by Corey Taylor Pdf

For the first time, Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor speaks directly to his fans and shares his worldview about life as a sinner. And Taylor knows how to sin. As a small-town hero in the early '90s, he threw himself into a fierce-drinking, drug-abusing, hard-loving, live-for-the moment life. Soon Taylor's music exploded, and he found himself rich, wanted, and on the road. His new and ever-more extreme lifestyle had an unexpected effect, however; for the first time, he began to actively think about what it meant to sin and whether sinning could--or should--be recast in a different light. Seven Deadly Sins is Taylor's personal story, but it's also a larger discussion of what it means to be seen as either a "good" person or a "bad" one. Yes, Corey Taylor has broken the law and hurt people, but, if sin is what makes us human, how wrong can it be?

A Funny Thing Happened on My Way to Old Age by Stanley C. Baldwin Pdf

''It started almost 15 years ago ... the assault on our prime-of-life status from every quarter of society.... Waitresses have stopped asking if we qualify for the senior discount; they simply give it to us. When I'm in public, young women step aside for me to enter doors ahead of them.'' Whether you are 50 or 70, you have probably shared some of Stanley Baldwin's experiences. Here is an opportunity to relive them with laughter. But, more important, in these pages you'll find an opportunity to reflect on how these life changes relate to your Christian life. This is a book for those who reject the grumpiness of aging and embrace the grace of life with Christ.

You're Making Me Hate You by Corey Taylor Pdf

New York Times bestselling lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour's hilarious trawl through the endless backwaters of human stupidity Corey Taylor has had it. Had it with the vagaries of human behavior and life in this postmodern digital blanked-out waiting room that passes for a world. Reality TV, awful music, terrible drivers, megamalls, airports, family reunions, bad fashion choices, other people's monstrous children, and badly-behaved "adult" human beings are warping life in the twenty-first century into an often-unbearable endurance test of one's patience, fortitude, and faith. Funny, profane, blasphemous, and above all right on target, You're Making Me Hate You is pure Corey Taylor unleashed, exposing the underbelly of human depravity in all its ragged glory.

Trucking for Jesus by Bunny Gregory,Blonnie Gregory Pdf

A Christian's journey is not always easy. Life as a trucker on the road is not easy either. There are long, lonely hours, unpredictable storms, winding roads that never seem to end, and sometimes it's easy to forget God in the midst of it all. But God is faithful, the theme of this inspiring daily devotional. In this book, Chaplains Bunny and Blonnie Gregory share ways to beat the highway blues with stories of the miracles that they have experienced while ministering to truckers onboard Sheneeda (because she needa lot of love, just like the rest of us), their mobile chapel pulled by their Kenworth truck, and inside truck stops all across the country. Each devotion offers a Bible verse to reflect on, a short story, a real-life application, and a prayer for readers. There are devotions on faith, kindness, prayer, and more. Some are humorous and some are a little more serious, but each one offers hope and encouragement for truckers on the long road ahead and shows that in the end, we're all Trucking for Jesus. Chaplains Bunny and Blonnie Gregory have traveled the U.S. highways coast to coast with their mobile chapel since 1975, dedicating their lives to ministering to the truckers and to all others who have come aboard their church on wheels. When not on the road, the two live in Virginia.

Eating My Way to Heaven by Denise Martin Pdf

Denise Martin grew up in a nice, upper-middle-class family, with a loving stay-at-home mom and a successful dad who served as a church elder. But beneath this perfect picture lay a dirty secret, one of incest and abuse, deceit and denial. To protect herself, Denise tucked her memories away, but she couldn't shake the hurt, confusion and shame she felt. To compensate for her lack of self-esteem, she indulged her unhealthy obsessions with food, drugs, and danger, always living life on the edge. Yet she never sunk into oblivion. Bright, compassionate, and tenacious, she also created responsible roles for herself as an innovative businesswoman and an advocate for children. Eating My Way to Heaven is the sometimes outrageous, often comical, always entertaining story of Denise's long, hard journey from a damaged past to a healthy, promising, productive future. This candid, no-holds-barred account illustrates so well that, when we have the courage to admit our denial and confront our demons, what we will find can set us free. Book jacket.

Heaven Looks a Lot Like the Mall by Wendy Mass Pdf

When 16-year-old Tessa suffers a shocking accident in gym class, she finds herself in heaven (or what she thinks is heaven), which happens to bear a striking resemblance to her hometown mall. In the tradition of It's a Wonderful Life and The Christmas Carol, Tessa starts reliving her life up until that moment. She sees some things she'd rather forget, learns some things about herself she'd rather not know, and ultimately must find the answer to one burning question--if only she knew what the question was. Written in sharp, witty verse, Wendy Mass crafts an extroardinary tale of a spunky heroine who hasn't always made the right choices, but needs to discover what makes life worth living.

Stoner by John Williams Pdf

Discover an American masterpiece. This unassuming story about the life of a quiet English professor has earned the admiration of readers all over the globe. William Stoner is born at the end of the nineteenth century into a dirt-poor Missouri farming family. Sent to the state university to study agronomy, he instead falls in love with English literature and embraces a scholar’s life, so different from the hardscrabble existence he has known. And yet as the years pass, Stoner encounters a succession of disappointments: marriage into a “proper” family estranges him from his parents; his career is stymied; his wife and daughter turn coldly away from him; a transforming experience of new love ends under threat of scandal. Driven ever deeper within himself, Stoner rediscovers the stoic silence of his forebears and confronts an essential solitude. John Williams’s luminous and deeply moving novel is a work of quiet perfection. William Stoner emerges from it not only as an archetypal American, but as an unlikely existential hero, standing, like a figure in a painting by Edward Hopper, in stark relief against an unforgiving world.

Can't Wait to Get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg Pdf

Combining southern warmth with unabashed emotion and side-splitting hilarity, Fannie Flagg takes readers back to Elmwood Springs, Missouri, where the most unlikely and surprising experiences of a high-spirited octogenarian inspire a town to ponder the age-old question: Why are we here? Life is the strangest thing. One minute, Mrs. Elner Shimfissle is up in her tree, picking figs, and the next thing she knows, she is off on an adventure she never dreamed of, running into people she never in a million years expected to meet. Meanwhile, back home, Elner’s nervous, high-strung niece Norma faints and winds up in bed with a cold rag on her head; Elner’s neighbor Verbena rushes immediately to the Bible; her truck driver friend, Luther Griggs, runs his eighteen-wheeler into a ditch–and the entire town is thrown for a loop and left wondering, “What is life all about, anyway?” Except for Tot Whooten, who owns Tot’s Tell It Like It Is Beauty Shop. Her main concern is that the end of the world might come before she can collect her social security. In this comedy-mystery, those near and dear to Elner discover something wonderful: Heaven is actually right here, right now, with people you love, neighbors you help, friendships you keep. Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven is proof once more that Fannie Flagg “was put on this earth to write” (Southern Living), spinning tales as sweet and refreshing as iced tea on a summer day, with a little extra kick thrown in.
