Missionary Work on Facebook #MyFamily

Elder Bednar had a fantastic devotional during Education Week in August on using Social Media to share to gospel! To view the devotional, visit this link:

Even before his address, missionaries all over the world have started using Facebook to spread the gospel. This week there’s a facebook event going on specifically sharing the importance of family. The event started on Sunday the 14th, but there’s still five days left for you to get involved!10486195_10204769342097636_2671928875047627956_n

Here’s how YOU can share the gospel on facebook (and twitter!):

Wednesday #MyFamilyMotto – Share a picture on facebook of your family’s motto or mission statement. It can be long or short. If you don’t have one yet, this is a great opportunity to make one!

Thursday #MyFamilyHistory – the ultimate throw-back Thursday! Share a story from your family history, a picture of an ancestor, or a picture of your family tree.

Friday #MyFamilyProclamation – Share a picture of where you have this document displayed in your home (if it is displayed, if not this is a great time to put it on your wall!) and share one of your favorite quotes from the Proclamation.

Saturday #MyFamilyIs4Ever – Share a picture of your favorite Temple, you and your family at the Temple, or a Wedding photo at the Temple if you’re married. Share your testimony about the Temple.

Sunday: #MyFamily – Video challenge! Share a video from about families –any video! Then, invite some of your friends specifically to watch the video.

Share the gospel through Social Media! The #MyFamily event is a fun way to show your facebook friends how you feel about your family.

  1. I have learn a few excellent stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking
    for revisiting. I wonder how much effort you place
    to create this type of excellent informative website.

  2. The 4th strategy on how to pick winning lottery numbers is by using an established system.
    Most huge lottery winners revealed that their lucky numbers
    have actually been picked by random number generator. The lottery black book
    method is a strategy that’s worked for hundreds of other people, and it could be just right for you.

  3. Everyone loves what you guys tend to be up too. This kind of
    clever work and exposure! Keep up the awesome works guys I’ve included you guys to my own blogroll.
