We also keep this blog because we believe in the importance of keeping records:
"Let us continue on in this important work of recording the things we do, the things we say, the things we think, to be in accordance with the instructions of the Lord. Our stories should be written now while they are fresh and while the true details are available. Those who keep [records] are more likely to keep the Lord in remembrance in their daily lives. [Records] are a way of counting our blessing and of leaving and inventory of these blessing for our posterity. Begin today and write...your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep...records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children, and others throughout the generations."
