Have you ever noticed that when you're looking for something specific, or are more aware of something, you can't help but notice it in everything you see or do? For example, my father (who is a retired police officer) would tell me that whenever you're looking for a specific type of vehicle it's amazing how many of them you find. If I was looking for a red Toyota Camry, somehow I'd see more of them than I expected. (Of course, I wouldn't play this game using a black Maserati.) I guess that's why these days, I always see how personal journals can fit into our everyday lives.
Just the other day I was watching CNN and they were reporting on the fires that are threatening the livelihood of hundreds of families. When interviewing the father of one of the families, he commented that when he had a chance to save their possessions he didn't care about material possessions at all. Naturally, he was focused on family history, photos, memoirs, videos, etc. I couldn't help but think about LDSJournal.com and how we're able to shoulder some of that burden and give people peace of mind when it comes to recording their personal and family history. I truly feel blessed for this service and our entire team feels grateful for the opportunity to deliver this service to you.
Our hearts go out to those families that are in need and we pray for all those families dealing with fires and natural disasters and hope that no further tragedies befall them.
