At BYU Education Week in August, Elder David A. Bednar challenged us to flood the earth with gospel messages.
In response to that challenge, Jillian J. Farnsworth created a Facebook Event I’M A MORMON Profile Picture Week.
The event encourages Latter-day Saints to change their Facebook profile picture to an image that states, “I’m a Mormon.” Jillian has created images that you can use in about 40 languages.
The week-long event is from October 6–12, the week after General Conference and the same week the movie Meet the Mormons is released to theaters. If you want to participate, click Going on the Facebook event page.
The goal is to have 250,000 members of the Church change their profile picture to an “I’m a Mormon” picture so that friends who are not of our faith will discover that they know a Mormon, hopefully leading to sincere questions and gospel-related conversations.
You can do it in 3 easy steps:
- Change your profile picture to one of the “I’m a Mormon” photos (posted on the event page).
- In the picture description, mention the full name of the Church and say something positive. Also use related hashtags. For example, “I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I love it! #ImAMormon #ShareGoodness #MeetTheMormons.”
- Remember Elder Bednar’s suggestions to be authentic and consistent, edify and uplift, respect intellectual property, and be wise and vigilant.
