The Face of Mormonism
I’m a fan of the “. . . and I’m a Mormon” PR campaign. (See also here.) The videos and profiles reflect the eclectic diversity of saints that I’ve known and loved in my wards across the country. They deliberately strike at the notion that homogeneity is the keystone to being a Good Mormon.
Check out this latest entry: international, working mom, stay-at-home dad. When have you ever seen a stay-at-home dad extolled through official church channels? A beautiful family and a lovely addition to this on-going video diary of saints. Your thoughts?
We expect that the people running Mormon.org will receive a lot of negative emails about this profile which doesn’t showcase prescribed gender roles. Please consider sending a letter or giving some online feedback (see below) to let them know that we appreciate profiles like this which highlight Mormon families in all their diversity.
