Today’s #ShareGoodness Idea: It’s easy to reshare Church videos and quotes, but there are more creative ways you can show the joy of the gospel in your own life.

Below is a video from the Church that illustrates creative ways you can share goodness through social media:

Below are two 20-second videos that may give you some good ideas.

The following video shows Diana Salvador making breakfast for her mother who experienced a stroke and is lying in bed. She happily works along and feeds her mother. “I believe there is a scripture that says if you take care of your parents, your life will be longer upon the land,” said Sister Salvador. “I live that scripture and that scripture comes back to me. … I believe in family with all I’ve got.”

This video features a Spanish-speaking man named Leslie, a single dad who raised his young children alone. Often he left home at 5 a.m. and worked until 5 p.m., at which time he returned home to make dinner for his children. He says, “I believe that the difficulties we have in this life make us stronger and build character. They help us increase our faith in our Savior Jesus Christ. He takes upon Himself our burdens.”

These new videos and 4 others are part of a campaign to share messages of goodness using the hashtag #ShareGoodness. The campaign and website at were created to help you get started with Elder Bednar’s challenge to flood the earth with goodness. Versions of the videos are also available in the Media Library.

“These videos were created specifically to show how we can share ourselves and our lives with others and be the light that Elder Bednar invited us to be,” said Fernando Camilo, a social media manager for the Church who produced these videos. “We want members to be a force for good online. There is a lot that they can share. It doesn’t need to be hard or invasive. Members can be authentic and positive in their posts.”

“Our goal as people is to become the message that we are spreading,” Elder L. Tom Perry recently taught. “We can always do more to reach out and set examples of Christlike behavior to those who are not of our faith. … There are individuals out there who need our examples of faith.” (“Become the Message,” Church News, Oct. 19, 2014, p. 6).
