Did you know that you can “read” temples? What if all of the temples around the world today constituted a vast library of new scripture just waiting to be read if we had eyes to see? This presentation covers some basic concepts relating to LDS Symbology and a guide to approaching the subject of learning symbolism.

This video presentation incorporates my first attempt at presenting principles related to “reading” temples. The content of the video is suitable for all ages and anyone interested in learning how understanding symbols can play an incredible part of their spiritual lives.


  1. This is fabulous! The only thing it needs is a musical soundtrack underlaid. Are you considering doing that?

    • I considered it but then decided against it. Now, I’m sure many will disagree with me on my reasons for not including music. I know the power of music and sound on the human mind for good and bad, and I didn’t want any music triggering any emotions that would lend any “authority” to the information being presented.

      I alone am responsible for the interpretations and how I present them based off of the work of others and my own observations. I am presenting this info just as a curious observer and nothing more.

      I just wanted to see if I could make something that could give a little peek into the richness of what we have available to us. Maybe more awareness on this subject can inspire others to go above and beyond this simple video. I sincerely hope they do, because I have so much more that I want to learn ;)

  2. Finally had time to watch this whole presentation, and I am so glad I did. I have been to a presentation by Val Brinkerhoff and it was amazing, but I love how accessible this video is, that we can pause and look, take notes, and grab our own scriptures to read along. Well done. Thank you for your efforts! It has blessed my life today!
