I recently looked over that journal and was amazed at the stuff that was so important to me then and had a great time reading it. When I went on my Mormon mission about a year after high school, we were told that we should keep a journal of our mission experiences.
Since I went on a foreign Mormon mission, when I saw a product that was also sold in the United States, I took the label and added that to my journal. Initially my journal was just a blow by blow account of my day, but eventually I also wrote spiritual experiences. Scrap booking was not something people usually did in those days, but I started off with a current picture and decided to leave the first several pages blank so I could add pictures, post cards, postage stamps from my letters and even bus tickets and other memorabilia.
During my mission I went through one 8 ? inch by 11 inch journal and three oversize journals.
I treasure these journals, and even today I still keep a journal, although there have been years when I did not. I can see how I have grown and how diligence in small things can make a difference in my life today. Of course, I have always kept in mind that my journals will someday be read by someone other than myself. From my perspective it is an inspirational thing, an opportunity to grow, understand and appreciate what have been my challenges, successes and even failures.

We don’t have to form plates by melting down gold or brass or etch our writing into a tablet of clay or metal.
When I was a senior in high school, I decided to give it another shot, after I discovered a similar book with a lock and key in a department store.
I see how much I have grown over the years and even learned a few of the details I would certainly have forgotten, had I not written about them in my journal. They are a treasure trove of information and serve to strengthen my testimony and inspire me to do better. I also think that at some point, those who come after me may also benefit by learning about my life, trials, successes and other things about my life.
Mormons have always been big on genealogy because of their belief that families are the building blocks of heaven. Even if a modern day Prophet like Spencer Kimball had never admonished LDS Church members to write their journals, I think it is a great idea anyway.
Recording them is also a formal recognition and acknowledgment of our gratitude to God” (Elder Paul B.

Because of this journal, I likely have much better insight into the problems those children and teenagers face and a great recollection of my earlier life. But I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records they will indeed be a source of great inspiration” (“Hold Fast to the Iron Rod,” Ensign, Nov. I have found that keeping a journal unfolded new insight, new awareness, gave me an opportunity to let off steam when I was upset or discouraged,  and sometimes my writings were more like an open or on-going  prayer to God for help and  thanks.

These tabs include stapled documents pertaining to personnel processing, record of attacks, and maps detailing military operations. I was intrigued at making my own secret ink and made a pen with a quill from a crow’s feather. I have also kept letters written to me filed by the city name I was in, and now have a fairly well documented history.
Even though I did not personally know them, I feel like I do, because I have read their journals. The views expressed by individual users are the responsibility of those users and do not necessarily represent the position of the Church. I even carved a stylus with my pocket knife and made plates of clay, but it did not work out so well, because they broke, and besides it was hard work.
Additionally, now with the development of Facebook, several of my investigators and several of the people we baptized have reached out to me. A person achieves exaltation, not singularly, but with his family that is sealed to him or her for time and eternity either by a covenant made by his parents in the temple or later sealed in a temple ceremony by those with authority. They are not just names in my family tree; they are real people with real life stories, struggles and successes. The “key idea” resonated with me, because it was so easy. I did not know the process was called journaling.
I wrote about all kinds of things, and my scrapbook sense made me want to make it interesting.
They have also told me stories about me that I did not write down that were both humorous and enlightening.
