Genealogy/Family History Project Ideas... #8

Note...see the very beginning of this blog for important steps on how to get started on your genealogy).

----- Keep a Daily, Weekly, or Monthly Personal Journal -----

A personal journal is a recording of a person's daily happenings in their life that have significance and importance. Ideally, this journal should be something we add to all our life. It may be entered into a hard bound entry book, a 3-ring binder, a spiral notebook, or such. You can even type it into a word processor, if you like. Some of the things it might contain are:

*Goals, hopes, and aspirations.
*Work experiences.
*Problems and how they were resolved.
*Joys and sorrows with family members.
*Relationships with others.
*Our deepest thoughts and spiritual feelings.
*Faith-promoting experiences.
*Significant personal and family events.
*Triumph over adversity.
*Special learning experiences.
*Personal spiritual testimony.
*Counsel for future generations who will read your journal.
