Author: G. P. Loehr
Love, obsession, memories: the sun, the moon and the stars. All of these elements combine in this collection of poetic musings, taking the reader on an emotional journey through time and space, seeking a place in the universe for their love and all of their feelings. The poems tell us the tale of uncertainty in a relationship and the hopes and fears of the poet, who dreams of the perfect love and has - perhaps - maybe - almost - found it. The worry when they are apart, the nerves when they're together, the assurances and reassurances, as well as the desolation and pain of unrequited, wasted love and heartbreak: all is discussed. Every reader will identify with some or all of the feelings expressed in this story, told in a quiet and contemplative tone.

This is not a book on just lecturing anybody, ____ it is just something that God said to write, and put together as he advised me to do.

This is not a book on just lecturing anybody, ____ it is just something that God said to write, and put together as he advised me to do. You will find some illustrations are not just our own experienced stories, but from others that willingly shared too, for the purpose of being able to point out viewpoints with good morals, or words to ponder on. Everyday, while I wrote, I had no clue where to begin, or where to actually stop. I learned it was best to flow along, by allowing God to show me suitable words to write, or when he reminded me of something that either happened year's prior, or something of recent that had been spoken to me by a family member or a friend. We can discuss the topic of "Traditionalism" later in class, when I will allow you to bring your own customs from ancestors to posterity by oral communication, while sharing with classmates your stories. We will also welcome your narrated tales by mail, to be used later on. Please send them to the Author, for sharing in the Cell Group. You should keep in mind, while reading the pages within this book, by trying to remember that, "Our self", is an individual person, and that each of us, have a unique part of the influence, which God hath created equally in us all. He hath given to you and I, the abilities to use our gifts and talents, to share love with someone else along the way. Come and experience with me today, as we give unto others, the joy of what the Lord hath yet in store for us to conquer.

The Sun, the Moon, the Stars and Maya is very different kind of book, in a unique format and richly textured with over 90 full color original illustrations and is one of those truly rare books that can be enjoyed equally by a child and a grown-up and most of all both a child and adult together. This book will surprise and delight you and your family and makes the perfect gift. Our lives are bombarded with things that can take us away from the special connections we are capable of. Each of us has the ability to demonstrate love, compassion, gratitude, and generosity. We can choose to live our lives by the Golden Rule. We can make time to appreciate the exquisite construction of our planet and experience the joys of nature. We can look toward the star-spangled heavens, appreciate the velvet silence, and draw peace from spirituality. We have the ability to find beauty in simplicity, and we can marvel at the complexity of what, at first glance, appears deceptively simple. Many of us have just forgotten how. In today's busy, electronics-oriented world, dominated by distractions, special effects, and noisy shoot-'em-ups, simple earth-based spiritual and moral issues have been effectively obscured from view and buried in the smoky haze of the fiery explosion of computer-generated images. The Sun, the Moon, the Stars, and Maya was created to help families discuss important issues with their children. Illustrations of Maya, the Shih Tzu puppy muse, in complementary settings, accompany bits of wisdom relating to spiritual and moral issues. Notable quotations are the inspiration for Maya's simple-language lyrical interpretations meant to evoke awe and wonder in all things and capture the imagination of the child and the child within the parent. Access to downloadable hi-resolution downloads and audio readings online and so much more are also granted with your purchase.

Category: Biography & Autobiography
An extraordinary memoir by a North Korean woman who defied the government to keep her family alive. Born in the 1970s, Lucia Jang grew up in a common, rural North Korean household—her parents worked hard, she bowed to a photo of Kim Il-Sung every night, and the family scraped by on rationed rice and a small garden. However, there is nothing common about Jang. She is a woman of great emotional depth, courage, and resilience. Happy to serve her country, Jang worked in a factory as a young woman. There, a man she thought was courting her raped her. Forced to marry him when she found herself pregnant, she continued to be abused by him. She managed to convince her family to let her return home, only to have her in-laws and parents sell her son without her knowledge for 300 won and two bars of soap. They had not wanted another mouth to feed. By now it was the beginning of the famine of the 1990s that resulted in more than one million deaths. Driven by starvation—her family’s as well as her own—Jang illegally crossed the river to better-off China to trade goods. She was caught and imprisoned twice, pregnant the second time. She knew that, to keep the child, she had to leave North Korea. In a dramatic escape, she was smuggled with her newborn to China, fled to Mongolia under gunfire, and finally found refuge in South Korea before eventually settling in Canada. With so few accounts by North Korean women and those from its rural areas, Jang's fascinating memoir helps us understand the lives of those many others who have no way to make their voices known.
