Daily Diary?

I've been thinking a lot lately about keeping a daily diary. I recently read that Wilford Woodruff kept one for 62 years and that he amassed over 7,000 pages! When I mentioned that in our Family History class today Bishop told of Brother Powell having kept one for 30+ years. Then Brother Pierce mentioned that I ought to be able to keep mine online since I'm a tech guy. I don't know if I'm ready for my personal thoughts to be out there for the masses. But what the heck. I'll give it a shot.

Erik and I went home teaching to the Esplins this afternoon. Jacob, Erik and I went to a Stake General Priesthood Meeting tonight where they talked about home teaching. Here are some of the notes I took:
Jacob Barzee - Home Teaching
Abraham 2:9
D&C 20:50, 59
-Encourage members to live the Gospel
D&C 38:40
D&C 42:12

Father Barzee
D&C 107 - Aaronic an appendage of Melchizedek
Home Teachers are to be "true messengers" of Jesus Christ
Pray before you go into their homes
D&C 64:33 - Be not weary...out of small things...

President Johnson
Are we disciples of Jesus Christ?
John 13:34 - A new commandment...love one another
ref? - Which is the great commandment?
Moroni - ...after they had been received unto baptism...that they might be nourished by the good word of God...
CHI - HT is a priesthood responsibility
3 Nephi - ...not everyone that saith...
Can we bend our will to God's?
How to learn to like it:
Ether - ...i will show them their weakness...
Moroni - ...come unto Christ...
Explicitly ask God to help you love the families.
Maxwell - ...as you submit your wills to God you are givving him the only thing that is really yours to give...

President Wightman
You must obey AND serve to be exalted.
