Oh, how true this is for me!!!

The events that unfolded after I got home from work all started with me saying “hey dude, do you want to go to the store with me? I need to buy more journals” Not all that exciting I know,  but there is just something about journals that make me happy.

Like I’ve said before on this blog. I can rarely be caught without a journal buried somewhere in my bag or sitting in the car I’m driving. You never know when you are going to hear a magnificent quote that will change your life that will never be remembered if you don’t write it down. Not kidding. Every time I leave my journal home this happens to me.

My journals are also the outline for everything you read on this blog. They are the notes I take on life before I publish my work. They are my thoughts. And I love them.

I didn’t accuire this love for journals on my own. It started with EFY and the fact that my dad always has a journal open during church meetings. I just hope that with keeping these journals I can someday grow to be like these two men that where quite possibly some of the greatest dudes in history.

Great dude #1. His name was Nephi. Nephi kept two journals. One was a journal that held a record of the genealogy of his people and the other was a record that contained more spiritual things. (1 Nephi 19)

Great dude #2. His name was Joseph Smith. Read about Joseph Smiths journals HERE. Because “[They] are among the most important records that help us understand him and the development of the Church during his life.”

Journals are cool

feel my sunlight

p.s. I also bought sticky notes today, but can’t think of anywhere in the scriptures where sticky notes are important so I guess you will just have to take my word for how great they are.

    I love journals! I don't carry mine everywhere, as you do, but every time I read scriptures I have my journal open next to me. My goal is to write at least one thing every night, even if it's not spiritual at all. It gets me in the habit of watching my thoughts for things worthy of being written.
