Need some encouragement to work on your personal history? Look no further!
We often read articles in the Deseret News Mormon Times Edition. Of course I like articles that relate to technology and family history. One of my favourite columnists is Emily Jensen who writes a column called Today in the Bloggernacle (“presenting the best from the world of LDS oriented blogs”). On 21 October her column included the following:
Personal histories: “I don’t know what to write.” “I don’t have time to do it right now.” “I don’t know how to do it.” And “No one even cares.” These are the four roadblocks to doing “Personal and Family Histories” this blogger dispels in an information-filled post. Here are just a few ideas for “I don’t know how to do it”: “Make an audio file of you talking about your history. You could do it in the car on the way to work, while getting ready for the day, in one of your favorite locations or while you’re sitting in bed.” Or, “Write a poem about an aspect of your life.” Or even, “Focus on one topic and make a list of things about you concerning that topic.” And there are so many more good ideas and tips.
