Elder Russell M. Ballard of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints recently addressed graduates of BYU Hawaii, urging them "to use the Internet — including blogs and other forms of 'new media' — to contribute to a national conversation about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." The original transcipt can be read here. It was brought to my attention at Times and Seasons, one of my new favorite places to visit.
The thought occurred to me while reading this that there are a lot of LDS women bloggers out there. Just check the ongoing list here. I certainly don't hide the fact that I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but how often do I use my blog to help spread the gospel? Only occasionally. I like that I have a variety of readers. I learn so much form women of all different religious backgrounds. So I've not wanted to seem "exclusive". Still, I'd like nothing more than to help dispel any misunderstandings about my beliefs, and I welcome questions any time.
I encourage us all to find more ways to use our blogs to inform others of our convictions. The Lord has blessed us with a multitude of mediums in which to display our beliefs - art, music, literature and now blogging. ;) Lol. So who's with me?
I've received 2 awards from Angela. Thank you!
In order to share the love I'd like to pass the great inspiring blog award along to Seeds From My Garden, An Ordinary Mom and Nettie. And The Daily Dose to Scribbit , Crazy Bloggin'Canuck and my dear friend Zoe at Fresh Preserves.
