With the October 2013 General Conference upon us, LDS.org has posted excellent social media tools to help you invite others to come listen to living prophets speak -- and they've updated them for you! You can choose to use the video invitation, an awesome widget, various banners and/or blog buttons in deciding the best way for you to share the gospel online. So, don't be shy!

Figuratively speaking, we want to flood the Internet highway with signs pointing to that building on the left - and fill it to brimming! We want to give the opportunity for anyone within the sound of the Lord's prophet, access to listen to him speak the words of Christ - if they so choose. And we want to do that one simple thing (our offeringthat has the power to bring a great thing about - but most likely you'll never know about it.

Pick one tool, and use it to share General Conference, online. Can you imagine what could happen if every member of the Church, online, shared this information once? I can. Our collective offering would be viewed as a great act of faith, in the Lord, and His work. He would pour out His blessings by increasing our reach to more of His children.

Just one.

Let's start with this video invitation, my personal favorite --  that you can use to invite others to view the October 2013 General Conference to experience first-hand what it's like to hear modern-day prophets. As with all of these tools you can decide how and where you will share your favorite ones, online. (I've already posted it to my Facebook wall)

"In order for the messages of general conference to change our lives, we need to be willing to follow the counsel we hear. The Lord explained in a revelation to the Prophet Joseph Smith “that when ye are assembled together ye shall instruct and edify each other, that ye may know … how to act upon the points of my law and commandment.” But knowing “how to act” isn’t enough. The Lord in the next verse said, “Ye shall bind yourselves to act in all holiness before me.” This willingness to take action on what we have learned opens the doors for marvelous blessings."Paul V. Johnson
