How well do you know the Language of God?
Would you like to be better at the Language of Symbolism?
This is not like any other language class out there. This is a language class where you’ll learn to receive sermons from a simple shape or color. God speaks to us both directly and indirectly through symbols, our job is to learn to “decode” it, but that is not the hard part – the hard part is that we are not accustomed to thinking through such simple language.
A few weeks ago I was at the temple with my daughter. While waiting for a room a matron asked me, “Do you know what this represents?” pointing to a design on the wooden doorway of a circle within a square.
“Yes, I do” I replied. Surprised, she gazed at me as if to be sure she heard me correctly. “It means heaven and earth coming together, it is the basic symbol of all temples,” I offered.
“That’s right” she exclaimed, “the circle represents heaven and the square is a symbol of earth and its four corners. Most people don’t know that.”
We had a wonderful conversation about symbols and architecture. She mentioned how this lost language was a true gem to her and her husband. It simplifies conversation and increases understanding of the ordinances. We discussed how wonderful it was to be able to sit in a room, observe the architecture and art work of the room and receive a sermon from God. I left inspired and uplifted.
Imagine the fun you could have observing the next temple you visit. With the skills you pick up in this class, you too can receive a sermon from God.
The prophets, Christ himself and the current prophets use this language. Come, increase your skills and thinking ability with the Language of Symbolism class.
I’m looking for families interested in learning this language who will discuss and interact with the symbol being presented.
My children (ages 6-16) and I took the Symbolic Math Class on circles. We had no idea there was so much symbology and beauty in a circle. We learned through pictures, videos, works of art, stories, quotes, scriptures and experiments. My oldest son asked me a few days ago when we were going to do the next class because he missed it. I can’t believe how much I thought about circles through this class and how symbolic they are. The class was so enlightening. I think differently now. I am so grateful to Tresta for loving this subject and sharing her love of it with us. If you’re thinking about taking a class, do it! You won’t be disappointed!Susan Wallis

is as follows (it may change as the class progresses):
My 10 and 13 yr old boys describe Thom and Tresta’s Symbolic Math classes as “awesome” and “very interesting!” They love their classes as they are engaging and taught within the context of the gospel as Tresta brings in concepts of the plan of salvation to tie it all to the gospel and truth. They teach with love and encourage curiosity and questions. They are organized and prepared and engaging and bring the most exciting and interesting parts out of the text. Tresta takes an extreme amount of time to make her power points awesome and they have the coolest videos…my kids beg to go back and watch the replays of their classes and they are thrilled to read the material because Tresta lights the fire of curiosity in them. Tresta and Thom have saved me in the science and math areas of our homeschool shedding huge amounts of light onto these subjects in ways that are unique and beautiful! How grateful I am for their amazing mentorship in our homeschool!!!- Jennifer Hahn
