"You are unique, and there may be incidents in your experience that are more noble and praiseworthy in their way than those recorded in any other life.

"By writing personal and family histories, we are helped immeasurably in gaining a true, eternal perspective of life. Writing our histories with the proper blend of fact and feeling (and so often, feelings in spiritual things are the real facts) gives us a deep spiritual insight into the meaning and purpose of our lives…writing our histories will certainly help us keep our eyes on the most important of all goals – even the goal of eternal life"
"May I suggest that you write, that you keep journals, that you express your thoughts on paper...You will bless the lives of many–your families and others—now and in the years to come."
"What a comfort is this journal. I tell myself to myself and throw the burden on my book and feel relieved."
"The act of writing is the act of discovering what you believe."
