She loved pink and dressing up as a mermaid and didn't feel like herself in boys' clothing. This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who said that Jazz was transgender and th...

Jazz Dance Styles and Steps for Fun Book Description :

Many books have been written about Freemasonry. However, there has been very little written and published in the area of Royal Arch Masonry. To the best of my knowledge, there has only been three books published in the last one hundred and fifty years. (1) Sheville and Gould's Guide to the Royal Arch Chapter in 1867 and 1980; (2) Trunbull and Denslow's A History of Royal Arch Masonry published by the General Grand Chapter in 1956 and 1993; and (3) Steinmetz's The Royal Arch Its hidden Meaning in 1946 and 1979. This book, The History and Symbolism of Royal Arch Masonry fills this void with a clear and accurate analysis of Capitular Masonry. This book covers the world history, U.S. history, and the symbolic content of each of the four major Capitular d...
