Record Spiritual Experiences

“We renew our appeal for the keeping of individual histories and accounts of sacred experiences in our lives—answered prayers, inspiration from the Lord, administrations in our behalf, a record of the special times and events of our lives. From these records you can also appropriately draw as you relay faith-promoting stories in your family circles and discussions. Stories of inspiration from our own lives and those of our forebearers as well as stories from our scriptures and our history are powerful teaching tools. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you individually, your husband or wife, your children, your grandchildren, and mothers throughout the generations.” Spencer W. Kimball, “Therefore I Was Taught,” Tambuli, Aug 1982, 1

  1. Kelly, I blog about my family history research and my personal/family life. But I must thank you for the reminder to keep a journal about my Spiritual experiences, answered prayers, etc. There's so much I can write and I need to get busy doing it. I've been neglectful in this area. I'm going to use your reminder as a Spiritaul Thought at an upcoming meeting I have.
