Stephen O'Meara's new and exciting observing guide spotlights an original selection of 109 deep-sky objects that will appeal to sky-watchers worldwide. His 'hidden treasures' include a wonderful assortment of galaxies, open clusters, planetary nebulae and more, all of which have been carefully chosen based on their popularity and ease of observing. None of these objects are included in either the Messier or the Caldwell catalogs, and all are visible in a 4-inch telescope under dark skies. Stunning photographs and beautiful drawings accompany detailed visual descriptions of the objects, which include their rich histories and astrophysical significance. The author's original finder charts are designed to help observers get to their targets fast and efficiently.
I hope that I can encourage you to tear down your walls and allow God to use your hidden gifts and talents to bless others. I call these gifts and talents hidden treasures. They are unused gifts given by divine intervention. I believe we all have them within our heartsâ€™. We just simply need to reach down inside ourselves and find them, and then, allow God to help us reach out and share them with others.

The Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the greatest repository of ancient Egyptian artifacts in the world, receives hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. But many of its treasures, long kept in basement storerooms or in magazines at archaeological sites around the country, or recently discovered at ongoing excavations, have never been seen by the general public. To celebrate the centenary of the Museum, many of these unknown pieces of exquisite beauty or great historical importance--and often both--have been brought out of the darkness to form a unique exhibition in a very appropriate setting: a converted section of the great basement storerooms of the Museum. With some 250 artifacts from the earliest beginnings of pharaonic culture to its latest flowerings, the exhibition spans the whole of ancient Egyptian history, and the one hundred masterpieces beautifully photographed for this volume represent the whole range of the exhibition: the Predynastic Period, the Old Kingdom, the First Intermediate Period, the Middle Kingdom, the Second Intermediate Period, the New Kingdom, the Third Intermediate Period, and the Late Period. This handsome book will serve as a prized memento for visitors to the exhibition and as a window onto it for Egyptophiles everywhere.

As you read the unbelievable testimony of the trials and overcoming successes of Carols life, you will both stand in awe and praise God for His faithfulness. Though many would have given up if they had faced insurmountable obstacles of physical, mental, emotional, relational, and financial difficulties, these obstacles taught Carol and Jim to rely more on the sovereignty of our Lord. You will be challenged to use this book as a catalyst to allow our God to work through the heartaches and roadblocks in your life just as Carol has beautifully surrendered her marriage, her family, her work, and her gifts to Him.
Casual and conversational, Hidden Treasures presents the Universal Laws of Abundance from a spiritual perspective. These ideas are astonishing; and you'll feel empowered as they comfort, encourage, and enlighten you on your journey to financial deliverance, even prosperity.While the author learned these principles in a secular arena through more than a decade of study and successful application, she now hopes to bring the principles to God-fearing people everywhere. How often have we been promised, "Ask and ye shall receive?" The problem is we don?t really believe it. Why? Because, so often it just doesn?t happen. So how does one develop the kind of faith required to see miracles in his/her financial life?"There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated?and when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated" (Doctrine and Covenants 130:20-21). So if you've ever wondered: "If the 'righteous shall prosper,' why am I so broke?" or, "Do I 'set my heart upon riches,' or just resign myself to the smothering prison of debt and the stain of poor credit?" ...then this book is for you.The answers to these questions (and many more) are the very answers which led Leslie and her husband to finally escape their own financial bondage, AND develop a closer relationship with God through the process. While the author is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the ideas and applications of scriptures are solely her own and do not necessarily represent the beliefs or doctrines of any particular denomination. In a compelling way, she brings hope to individuals in strained relationships, mothers who want to come home from work, and fathers who want to spend more time with their family. Hidden Treasures brilliantly delivers a profound message of hope for all who believe there is a God.
The Author will take you on an incredible journey through life's circumstances and decisions. We will go from one side of the spectrum to the other. Though not knowing what your looking for, but gaining knowledge, power, and control, of life's journey along the way. At the end of this journey the Hidden treasures are found and the explorer discovers that the journey was truly priceless.
There are hidden treasures in this story to be discovered by each reader. A story about someone that had no hope for getting over a hurt of a lost love or being able to love again. Someone that needed to find herself, before she allowed love to come back into her life, and not knowing if she ever could or would. It is a refreshing story that the young as well as the young at heart can read and it will leave the reader with the feeling that there are even more hidden things to be uncovered.
