Help Kickstart the LDS Symbol Cards Project!
LDS Symbol Cards are a unique way to explore symbols within the context of the Latter-day Saint faith.
Symbolism is a passion of mine. I absolutely love the subject because I find it incredibly fun, enlightening and advantageous when it comes to increasing my ability to learn. When I first began to research the topic in real depth, I found it difficult to know where to begin.
There are so many thick books, many of them which are phenomenal, but for the average person or child it can be hard to access this information and process it.
For the past few years, I have been working on a way to take all of the information that I have learned and condense it into a simple tool that anyone can use.
I’ve carried around version after version of prototypes, using them in my own personal study along with teaching my children. I feel that I have produced something at this point that is worth sharing with the LDS community.
Inspired by the work of Val Brinkerhoff, Michael S. Schneider, Alonzo Gaskill and more, these cards are an attempt to bring the world of symbolism down to a place where any Latter-day Saint can begin to get more out of the many symbolic teachings that are important to our faith.
If this project gets funded, this is on the beginning of a whole series of symbolism cards that I plan on releasing. Technically, the “TEMPLE THEMES: Volume 2” set is already done, but I’d like to get at least these three sets funded before I produce any more.
Depending on how well this project does, I’d like to get these into some LDS bookstores as well. At the very least, I’ll be creating an online store where all these cards and future sets and educational products will be offered including occasional freebies!
