Are Mormon Mommy Bloggers Fulfillment of Prophecy?

mormon-mommy-blogsIn 1979, President Spencer W. Kimball said, “Much of the major growth that is coming to the Church in the last days will come because many of the good women of the world (in whom there is often such an inner sense of spirituality) will be drawn to the Church in large numbers. This will happen to the degree that the women of the Church reflect righteousness and articulateness in their lives and to the degree that the women of the Church are seen as distinct and different—in happy ways—from the women of the world” (“The Role of Righteous Women,” Ensign, November 1979, ).

Many LDS women blog, and some of these “Mormon Mommy Bloggers” have hundreds of thousands of readers each day who check in for updates on babies, fashion, inspiration, and an escape from daily life.

    As a mormon mommy blogger myself without the thousands of followers, I do love reading other blogs. I like to think that most of my readers who are not LDS are learning something from me about my religion even though I rarely blog directly about religion. But I talk about being a mormon a lot. People are interested in seeing that we are normal people just like everyone else, yet also just a little different!

    Great points! I do believe the influence of good people everywhere make a huge difference, but the internet has enabled so many people with good intentions to share their thoughts and testimonies of the restored Gospel!
