As we celebrate three years of standing strong for marriage, faith and family, we want to open up this space and hear from you! Wherever you live in the world, your faithful voice is needed. That’s why we’re asking for you to share your experiences—experiences and stories that will inspire other Mormon women to “stand”. Don’t worry if you’re not a perfect writer (no one is!) Simply tell us about a time when you have been able to stand:
- in your communities for good
- on social media
- in holy places
- with the Prophet
- the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
- the General R.S., Y.W. and Primary leaders
- with the Prophet Joseph Smith
- for womanhood as defined by God
- for traditional marriage
- for the traditional family
- and for the importance of motherhood and fatherhood
***Deadline for submissions is midnight Tuesday, February 28. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org***
Mormon Women Stand Submission Guidelines:
These are the guidelines for your submission. Once approved and edited we will publish on the MWS website. Mormon Women Stand only accepts original content and request that you not publish (or submit) same material on other sites.
- Post should be in keeping with Mormon Women Stand mission statement and non-promotional. Our mission statement is:
“Mormon Women Stand is a collaborative online effort to join like-minded female members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who share a desire to make a public stand as witnesses of Jesus Christ and support The Family: A Proclamation to the World. We believe standing together reflects the divine nature and power with which LDS women are endowed to influence others for good. We unequivocally sustain the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles—commissioned by God and sustained as prophets, seers, and revelators—and support how the Lord has delegated priesthood authority to organize and administer the gospel among all of His children.”
