3 Nephi - Chapter 23

I suppose you might say that this is easy for me to say, being a writer, but I'm going to say it anyway, "Write!"

Well did the Lord admonish the Lehites to record the teachings of Samuel the Lamanite and others and to record the circumstances and means of their salvation.  Well might we do the same.  In Stake Conference today I was taught many wonderful things, some by the word and others by the Spirit, who was most certainly in attendance. I would be remiss if I didn't record those wonderful words and impressions.  They lifted my then and may continue to do so if I have them written where I can be reminded of them.  The Lord said in the Doctrine and Covenants, "whether by my voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same."  I heard scripture, new, current and fresh instruction, recording it, I have new scripture to lift, teach and inspire me.  Mine may not be scripture for you and yours may not be scripture for me, but any personal revelation we receive from God, if recorded, can add to our own personal cannon and be for our benefit, not to mention that of our posterity, who most certainly lie in our stewardship and can definitely benefit from the scripture of their parents.

By the way, you'll be amazed at your much you learn WHILE you write.
