Frida Kahlo is regarded as one of Mexico's greatest painters: her extraordinary personal style, her tragic story, her relationship with Diego Rivera (the more famous painter in their day) alongside her passionate paintings have made her a cult figure since she died over sixty years ago. But beyond the familiar images there is a private story about a daughter who confided in her beloved mama, Matilde Calderon Kahlo. Until now Frida's handwritten letters have only been available to scholars - and recently in Spanish in a book that appeared in 2016. Now for the first time we have over fifty of these letters in English. And what a treasure. Funny, observant and honest, they chart Kahlo's relationship with her mother; a relationship that was sometimes fraught - as with most mother and daughters - but was always alive and honest. They begin in 1923 when Kahlo was sixteen and continue until the death of her mother in 1932. These letters tell us about Kahlo's anxieties, her feelings about her husband and friends and above all reveal the marvellous, critical painter's eye in her description of people and places from Mexico, San Francisco and New York. Edited, translated and introduced by Dr. Héctor Jaimes, Professor of Spanish, North Carolina State University (who edited the Spanish version) this book is published with paintings and photographs.

Jane Shutt is a down-to-earth Yorkshire woman who leads an extraordinary life as one of Britain's leading shamanic healers. Shamanism is an ancient spiritual path that exists all around the world; and a shaman uses his or her close affinity with nature and spirits to help those in need of healing. In The Spirits are Always with Me, Jane Shutt explains what shamanism really is, and how it is especially relevant to us in the modern world as we seek to connect with our roots and with our own sense of inner purpose. She shares her own incredible story and the stories of many of those who have come to her for help and healing. Jane reveals the ways in which shamanism can dramatically help people to turn their lives around. She recalls her own shamanic journeys to other levels of reality, including adventures in the Otherworld, spine-tingling visits to the Land of the Dead and other reaches of existence. She shows how shamanism can offer inroads into anything from curing a physical ailment, to dealing with mischievous household sprites, through to healing a whole city.

Come, take my hand and let me lead you into a deeper relationship with the Lord. Come and experience how Abraham felt when God asked him to sacrifice his only son Isaac. Come and sit with the Shulamite maid under God's banner of love and see how much God loves you. Come with Ezekiel and see the truth about Ezekiel's temple. You will realize that God loves you so much that he will never leave your side. Together, as we look at some of God's names in the Old Testament, our faith and love for God will grow. And you will know that he is everything to you.

The Lord is Wonderful and is my Bright and Morning Star. He is the Lifter Up Of My Head, my Light, my Strength, my Rock, my Sanctuary and my Refuge. He is the First and the Last, the Almighty and the Chief Among Ten Thousand. He is my Mercy, my Goodness, my Loving Kindness and my Steadfast Love. He is My Prince, my Immanuel and my Father. Come with me and explore the riches and wonders of God's character, through His names and descriptions in the Bible. We will get to know Him better, enter into a deeper intimate relationship with Him and be able to say, "Yes, He is altogether lovely; He is my beloved." Along with my previous two books, "Love Me Passionately" and "You Are Everything," this book encourages you to interact with the Scriptures. This was something done by Joshua, the apostle Paul as well as our Lord. As you speak aloud the text, you will learn the benefits of confessing the Truth, your faith will grow and you will be able to trust God more. Lord, there are times when life does not seem to be fair, but You are good. There are times when it is difficult to lift up my head to You, but You are good. There are times when it is hard to say, "I love You," but You are good. Lord, when I am struggling and in despair, help me, for You are good. Paul F Taylor

My Prayer for Today Holy Father, please fill all my vision, my life, my every thought, my every desire with Yourself alone. My head tells me there is no life outside of Thee; may my heart believe and daily practice this belief. You know my heart. Change it until all my heart is Yours alone. Real living is when I am living for You, and You alone. Every day I want to live only for You. Please use me today to help someone who is struggling to see the life and love of Jesus in my life, and come to know Your forgiveness and everlasting peace. Today and every day, I want to live a life totally committed to doing Your will with all my being. I want You to control and guide my life. Today I must realize that You are in all I do. May 1 Corinthians 10:31 (AFV) always be true in my life: Whether I eat or drink, or whatever I do, I do all to the glory of God! Dear Jesus, I have no life but Your life, no purpose or will but Your will and purpose, no breath but Your breath. Daily I long that Romans 14:8 (AFV) will be the consuming passion of my heart and life: Whether I live, I live for the Lord. If I die, I am the Lords. So, whether I live or die, I belong totally to the Lord.

POEMS FOR THE HEART (Love Poems and Passions III) is a book on poetry, exemplifying human experience that the feeling of love respects no boundary of expression in a heart-to-heart intimacy between two souls. Love is love no matter how long or short its sojourn in the life of a person, no matter how deep or shallow its degree, or no matter how extent or narrow the space it occupies in one’s heart. Truly, love is love no matter how it is expressed in different passions: sharing, caring, giving, receiving, laughing, crying, hurting, leaving, pleading, forgiving, or even losing and getting it back again and again. Love never changes its effects and colors: the happiness and contentment in the heart and soul of its beholder.
