Have You Ever Wondered ...
Why Are We Here?
What Is God?
Who Am I?
What’s the Discovery Game?
What Are Heart Clouds?
How Do Wishes Come True?
How Can I Live a Happy Life?
One hundred years ago, Ernest Holmes was asking the same questions, and many more, about who we are, why we are here, and about how life works here on Earth. In the 1920s, he published the answers he found in the book, Science of Mind. The timeless answers he discovered form the foundation for Religious Science, a religion that is now practiced in Centers for Spiritual Living throughout the world.
In 2012, Science of Mind Minister, Rev. Doug Yagaloff, envisioned a curriculum for children that would teach Science of Mind principles in an entertaining way. He approached spiritual psychologist and curriculum developer, Dr. Avianna Jones, to create a curriculum designed for use in Science of Mind Sunday Schools and by families at home. The development of the material was a labor of love for both of them.
The curriculum was launched at Asilomar in the summer of 2012. Sadly, Rev. Yagaloff made his transition to spirit in 2013. The 2016 edition was updated and relaunched by Dr. Jones to honor Rev. Yagaloff's vision of sharing this information with Science of Mind and New Thought families.

Each Book Contains 7 Weekly Lessons

- Suggestions for teaching each lesson
- Quotes from Ernest Holmes’ Living the Science of Mind to support the concepts introduced
How to Use the Book
While kids can read the book on their own, it's really designed to be a tool for you to use as you teach your child about YOUR personal spiritual belief system. There are discussion questions and prompts that encourage you to share your experiences along your spiritual path and what you have discovered as you play The Discovery Game.
Also, as you learn about "Heart Clouds" and the "Discovery Game" and other concepts presented, you will have some "kid friendly" terms to use to help children reframe their experiences. And some helpful tools to use as well.
If YOUR personal belief system differs from some content here, PLEASE share YOUR beliefs with your children! Use the material as a jumping off point, and

Go on an adventure of self-discovery and Divine expression with the Power Puppies in this inspiring book for all ages ...
With clear and powerful concepts, the book is sure to set the stage for success no matter what age you are.
These books really help children connect to the idea that we are one with God … and that we may use this presence to create a greater life right now. I know that as you and you children experience these books, it will help them understand their divine connection with God in a more real way. What a blessing it is to know these principles as we grow and begin creating our lives.
