Blogging: Dare to Share

Elder Ballard has challenged us all to share our testimonies on the Internet. In a speech last April to the BYU Management Society in Washington D.C., he said, “Church leaders can’t do it all. We look to our responsible and faithful members to engage personally with blogs . . . Share your experiences—those from your own life—that show how your values and your faith intersect. It doesn’t matter if it’s face to face, or whether you do it by participating from your own blog or contributing to someone else’s blog. The most important thing is that you let people know that you are a Latter-day Saint, and that your behavior and attitude always reflect what is expected as a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. Allow people to see how your beliefs lift and shape your life for the better.”

Elder Ballard also wrote the cover story for the July 2008 Ensign on the same topic. It can be found on the Internet here.

Elder Ballard can also be found on YouTube. This is a clip about joining the Internet conversation:

Here are some blogs we have obtained permission to share with you. Spend some time checking them out for beautiful examples of sharing our faith with the world in a beautiful and non-threatening way.
