Lilian Maeve Veronica Savage, international sex kitten, was born on the steps of The Legs of Man public house, Lime Street, Liverpool on a policeman’s overcoat. Her mother, the lady wrestler Hell Cat Savage, had no such luxuries as gas and air. She just bit down on the policeman’s torch and recovered afterwards at the bar with a large pale ale... Paul O'Grady shot to fame via his brilliant comic creation, the blonde bombsite Lily Savage. In the first two parts of his bestselling and critically acclaimed autobiography, Paul took us through his childhood in Birkenhead to his first, teetering steps on stage. Now, in Still Standing, for the first time, he brings us the no-holds-barred true story of Lily and the rocky road to stardom... Paul pulls no punches in this tale of bar room brawls, drunken escapades and liaisons dangereuses. And that’s just backstage at the Panto... Along the way, we stop off at some extremely dodgy pubs and clubs, and meet a collection of exotic characters who made the world a louder, brighter and more hilarious place. From the chaos of the Toxteth riots and the Vauxhall Tavern police raid, to the mystery of who shot Skippy and the great chip pan fire of Victoria Mansions, Paul emerges shaken but not stirred. Still Standing will make you laugh and make you cry. Some of the stories might even make your hair curl. But it stands as a glorious tribute to absent friends and to a world which has now all but vanished.
What will you do with this time that you have?This is the question you should be asking yourself. Many people, when it's all said and done, will look back at their lives and have regrets. Will this be you? You see, you are still here and still standing (i.e., still able to carry on with life), so how will you utilize your time here on earth? In his book Still Standing, two-time author Bethran Akpuchukwu covers a range of important life topics all centered around this main topic of still here, still standing. His book covers topics including health, finances, wise investments, and so much more. Start now, and ask yourself, "What do I need to address in my own personal life that I keep putting off?"
Still Standing is a book of joy, excitement and hope for the hopeless. It reflects on the past, examine the present and speculate on the future. Still Standing will teach you how to stand in spite of the storm, how to still stand in spite of the adversities. Raphael Grant will make you understand that anybody destined by God for greatness will go through trials, affl ictions, pain, and struggles, because it is a necessity for where God is taking them. The changes and challenges that lies ahead are God-given possibilities for people to live their lives in conformity of his will and purpose.
Growing up in a prairie farm family, with a very close-knit church community, Paul Vollmin is raised to believe that a Christian should be different. But somehow, even though the Bible tells him that he has changed when he’s accepted Jesus as his savior, he doesn’t feel changed. And as Paul enters a rebellious stage, he starts to indulge his own personal failures, losing touch with his faith and living lie after lie. One day, as a young husband and father, he just can’t sustain it any longer and finds himself hospitalized for severe depression and considering suicide as a viable way out. Still Standing is Paul’s personal story of coming to terms with the past and present in light of a faith in Jesus Christ. Be forewarned, his journey is no idealized picture of what a Christian should look like, but a discovery of how a real life, warts and all, can be transformed by a real God. In frank and frequently very funny fashion, Still Standing provides full disclosure in its chronicle of God reaching into the darkest corners of a man’s being, to bring light and healing to a life of faith gone wrong.
No one knows what tomorrow will bring. All we know is that quitting is not an option! It does not matter where you started from in life, whether through rough beginnings or maybe you have consciously taken an unforgettable path in life. All that matters today is that you continue to stand tall. Stand through the pain. Stand through the hurt. Stand through the discomfort. Stand through the trials and tribulations. Stand through defeat. Stand through the heartache. Stand through the betrayal. Stand through the brokenness. Stand through the confusion. And after you have done all you can, continue to stand because the best is yet to come!
Still Standing gives direction to anyone facing challenges or difficult situations in life. It draws wisdom and direction from my personal experiences, the experiences of others, compilations of short stories, lyrics of songs by popular song writers and artistes, poems, quotes, movies and ultimately the infallible Word of God (the Holy Bible), with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Oozing with positivity, this is the kind of book that one should have within easy reach. It reads like a trusted guide to the journey of life; a sort of 'chicken soup' remedy for life's trials and struggles. Its inspirational anecdotes are certainly good for the body and good for the soul. At the heart of its success is its practical simplicity and common-sense approach; it is a quick read and very memorable. Long after you put the book down the words still resonate and the section titles read as bite-size daily inspirations. Bible quotations have been drawn from various translations for clarity and simplicity. The language style is informal; making it extremely easy to read (you most likely will not need to pull out a dictionary!). It is broadly divided into two parts: Part 1 "Need to Know" and Part 2 "Need to Do" and made up of thirteen chapters; each chapter is a "flipped light switch" that floods our lives with warmth and brightness of the truth from God's Words unveiling to the reader, nuggets vital to living victoriously through life's challenges. It answers the "what?", "why?" and most importantly, the "how?" question
