Literature 

Literature is learning and relationships with letters, books, dramas, poetry and classics. Good literature sings within us, we rejoice at how words form pictures and events within our minds. It leads us to understanding our own world and gives us hope for our future. Scripture is the highest form of literature on the earth.
Each year we read at least one book from each of the branches of literature: Scripture, Classics, Biography, Poetry, Drama, Culture, and Character Development.      ~ taught by Tresta Neil

English Language

The English Language is made up of several branches: orthography (sounds), etymology (words), syntax (sentences), prosody (poetry), prose (speech), and composition (complete works). We will review each of these and do a deep dive into syntax. We will break apart and diagram Book of Mormon verses as well as make up complex sentences for others to dissect.
What happens when people don't treat their language well, or loose their language… let's discover this too.     ~ taught by Tresta Neil

Omni-Science

The short definition of science is truth, God knows all truth, his omniscience (notice the word science in there) makes him the greatest scientist ever. Those that seek truth are also scientists or omniologists, studying all science together. In this course we will learn about the Clovis or Adamite people and how they used specific rock and great technology before the Nephites. We will begin using the Universal Model volume 2 and finish in the scriptures exploring how God uses plants, animals, and body parts to teach us truths.      ~ taught by Tresta Neil

Omni-Math

Math is the language God used to create the Universe. Math is the language of all sciences. Satan has separated math and made it independent of all other subjects. He has taken the beauty out of math and made it only about computations, measuring, time etc. God intended it to be intertwined in all things. In this class, we will take a walk through the numbers 1 through 12 and discover the characteristics of each number. We will discover God's plan of happiness within numbers and shape. We will go out in nature and see if we can understand the language of numbers in nature - discover what God wants to teach us. The computations of multiplications, division, fractions, decimals, and percents will be reviewed. (Math tutoring is available)
We will also take a look at Euclidian Geometry and the Natural Laws he discovered.    ~ taught by Tresta Neil

Ancient Art

Art is a visual record of "His" story; God is the master artist and beauty is one of his attributes, just look at different flowers or the sunset.  The Old Testament talks about the working and the craftsmanship of using stone and wood to create beautiful furniture. We will discuss and experience each of the elements of Art: color, value, space, shape, texture, and line and liken them to our lives. Each of the art forms: drawing, painting, sculpture, crafts, architecture, etc. will be used as well as many different mediums. The Egyptian, Etruscan, Ottoman, and Greek art works will be examined.    ~ taught by Brielle Hahn

Music of the Old Testament

Music along with Math is a language of God. We use music to praise God, to pray, as a light that guides us home, but, as with everything, Satan has its counterfeit and uses music to destroy, confuse, and teach evil. In this class we will learn about the Principles of Music: Melody, Harmony, Rhythm and what Michael Ballam calls Love. For high quality of music, we must have all four.
We will experience all the elements of music: singing, instruments, music theory, movement, dance, performance, and applying the principles of music. We will focus on how the book of Psalms was used as hymns at the temple, in praise, and at home.   ~ taught by Brielle Hahn

Language of the Scriptures

Our culture has taught us to not ask questions. When we were young we are filled with questions, it is a natural process of life. But our leaders give us cliché or round answers, which stop us from asking questions. God can’t guide us if we don’t turn on the engine of our minds by asking questions. When we ponder the answers to those questions we are moving and God CAN and will guide and lead you to the answers. In this class you will learn key words to look for when studying, the importance of a vocabulary list, sentence structures in the scriptures, how to diagram (not the same as we did in school) sentences, and analyzing complete works and parables.   ~Tresta Neil

Know Your Religion (Thursday mornings)

Every Thursday morning we meet to study the scriptures. This is an ongoing class that studies different scriptural topics. We enjoy going deep into one subject. This year we will study faith. We will begin our study with the book, "Lectures on Faith" written by those who attended the "School of the Prophets," led by Joseph Smith. Everyone has a voice and input into what we are studying. This is a great way to meet with like-minded Saints. It is a safe place to ask hard questions and explore answers together. Join in the discussion, listen in, or watch the recordings, all are welcome.
