A thought from the scriptures

For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God. . . . - 2 Ne. 25:23

"A personal history becomes a family treasure that enables children to emulate the virtues and personal characteristics of their forebears," said Elder Royden G. Derrick of the Seventy at the April 1979 general conference. "Their forefathers become the David, the Samson, the Moses, and the Abraham of their lineage. Writing family and personal histories is becoming the popular thing to do. More and more people throughout the world are becoming interested in this exciting pastime to them, but sacred responsibility to us. The hearts of the children are indeed turning to the fathers."
