Why I Believe fireside and Video Testimonies [Jul. 29th, 2008|02:05 pm]
LDS Church


Back in February, USAF 4-star General Bruce Carlson visited our ward/stake and spoke at a fireside entitled Why I Believe. He bore powerful testimony of his conversion and of the Gospel.

I recorded it for the stake history and finally got around to converting it to a Flash video so that we could post it and share it with friends.

We posted it to our website.

After reading Elder Ballard's article in the July Ensign, we've been trying to figure out how to use our site to share the gospel. Having posted Brother Carlson's video, we would like to explore the possibility of posting other things like this and also provide a way for Latter-day Saints to share their testimonies and we could host them on our site. We think it would be a good way to utilize multimedia, as Elder Ballard said, to bear testimony and share the gospel. It would be sort of a YouTube idea for LDS.

Take a look at the video and if anyone is interested in sharing, please let me know.

enjoy the video..

This seems like a thinly-veiled attempt at advertising.

Sorry winter, that's not my intent. That's our website address and while we do use it to sell, we also use it to provide LDS resources.

I saw this an an opportunity to talk with a group of members who obviously use the internet to communicate and gauge whether or not there would be interest in a way to post testimony videos.

We asked folks in our ward and some members here are interested but that pool would run out quickly.

I wanted people to see Brother Carlson's video so they would understand what we're talking about and looking for.

If I can word the post differently to give the proper emphasis, please let me know.

A few months back, we shot some photos for a stake dance. The photos were offered free-of-charge to the members who had gotten them taken. We set up a site for people to download the photos, but didn't provide an obvious way to visit our site.

With this, I'd provide a link to the specific page the testimony is posted on and mention that the site as a whole can be used as a resource for LDS-centric materials.

But that's just me. How you do it is up to you.

Ah, understood.

I just provided the main page because it's easier to remember (and less to type).

Here is the direct link and I am changing it in the main message as well.

Thanks for the info!

Also wanted to thank you for inspiring me to pick up photography. We recently got a Canon xTi and are hoping to improve before our baby arrives!
