"All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world." Buddah Certainty for Uncertainty is a powerful collection of undisputed facts that have the capacity to enhance our spiritual thoughts and expand our awareness of the reality of God's existence and the true presence of the human Soul. Certainty from Uncertainty examines the words and thoughts of many of the world's greatest philosophers, scientists, intellectuals, and metaphysicians and develops through their thoughts a compelling argument for the existence of God, the Soul, and the evolution of the human Soul to Omega Consciousness (a state of human consciousness in which the consciousness of God and humankind are identical). Dr. Prato takes the reader for a hand-in-hand walk with the world's greatest thinkers and intellectuals. Without a preaching to the choir tone, he appeals to skeptics and believers alike, presenting compelling evidence of God's existence from many of the brightest minds in our history outside the religious realm. What were the spiritual thoughts of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle; of renowned scientists such as Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, Henry Margenau, and many others nearly all Nobel Prize winners? What thoughts of God did Baruch Spinoza, Wilhelm Liebniz, Larry Dossey and David Bohm have in common? Does the history of the thoughts of these profound thinkers allow us to understand how they came to a near-identical belief in the Universal Presence? How do their thoughts coincide with the thoughts of the Prophet David when he wrote his timeless 23rd Psalm? Certainty From Uncertainty raises the veil on these magnificent intuitive connections. Of Certainty From Uncertainty Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Words and Recovering the Soul says: The great task of a lifetime is to find our way to the Absolute or God, however conceived. This "spiritual text" is a guide for our time, which many people who are engaged in spiritual work will find immensely helpful. Peter Prato shows us there is a final common pathway uniting science, spirituality and healing. His message is about unity, which our age desperately needs to recover. Certainty From Uncertainty leads us through these esoteric thoughts, filled with mystery and wonder, into the realm of the miracle and the near-death experience, then to Omega Consciousness--a state of being where humans become fully integrated with the consciousness of God.

The math games are designed for you to have fun with your child while reinforcing mathematical skills. Most games are designed for 2 or more players. Finding solutions for families who are actively involved in their children's learning is a continuing source of inspiration for Math Games in a Bag. Research proves children whose families read to them, help them with homework, talk to their teachers, and participate in their learning in other ways have a tremendous advantage in school and in life. Playing games can help children develop decision making and mental math skills. There are many games sold commercially, such as board games that involve patterns and probability. Playing games such as counting games and games that keep score are great ways to help develop math skills. Games require children to use strategies to make decisions, solve problems, and develop an understanding about numbers and how to use them. This book includes instructions for 33 math games for families with elementary school-aged children to Make at Home.. These math games use materials found inside your home and also make learning experiences out of everyday routines, such as ordering from a restaurant menu or putting gas in your car to check the kind of mileage you are getting. The math games are designed for you to have fun with your child while reinforcing mathematical skills. Most games are designed for 2 or more players. We hope this will help you continue to participate in your children's learning. We hope you and your children will enjoy the games suggested in this book and develop many more of your own. Our books are committed to help you continue to be involved in your family's education. Your commitment will encourage your children to reach their full potential. Read what others are saying about "Made at Home," Math Games in a Bag. You gather the supplies you need, print off your masters and put everything in a Ziploc bag so your games are ready to go. We keep our games in a hanging file folder box that I already had set up with school things. This keeps everything handy and organized. We love these Math games! These math games use materials found inside your home and also make learning experiences out of everyday routines, such as ordering from a restaurant menu or putting gas in your car to check the kind of mileage you are getting. The math games are designed for you to have fun with your child while reinforcing mathematical skills. I made at home several games and we've been playing during the week in addition to our regular math curriculum. My 9 year old has been struggling with regrouping. One of the games is a dice game for 2 players that involve adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers. She is getting so much practice and because it is a game and not a lesson she is not complaining about it (and actually even asks to play.) I can't ask for more than that in a game. I am SO impressed with this product. It is something we will use for years to come. For each bag, it gives you an instruction sheet on how to assemble that bag with all of the needed supplies. It is so easy to follow. And the games are so fun for the kids. Math Games is over 200 pages packed full of fun math themed games for every level. I love products that I will be able to use for more than just one grade level and this is definitely the case with this book.
