Several prominent LDS social media accounts posted positive messages this week, encouraging followers to keep their heads up.
Following an noticeable decline in social media activity over the past weeks, David Archuleta posted on Instagram that he took a break from social media to reconnect with himself and his life.
He said in the post “It's so easy to get caught up in thinking about whether every moment in my life would be pleasing to everyone. Sometimes I get caught up to see if I am having enough interesting moments and witty remarks that will catch enough attention from people. I start rating my self-worth and how good my life is based on if someone chooses to look at my picture and like it or not.”
Lexi Walker, LDS prodigy singer, also posted on Instagram this week, announcing a video collaboration with BYU’s Vocal Point and the BYU Ballroom Dance Company.
The Facebook account of Elder D. Todd Christofferson, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, posted a message about keeping the proper perspective, saying, “Even the mundane and repetitious can be tiny but significant building blocks that in time establish the discipline and character and order needed to realize our plans and dreams.”
The Facebook account of Elder Dallin H. Oaks, another member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in the LDS Church, posted a message of encouragement for those in the midst of hard times. “In the stressful circumstances that surround us, we must trust in God and His promises and hold fast to the vital gospel teaching of hope," the post said.
