This evening, I read the “Brief Explanation about the Book of Mormon”. This page describes the plates which are mentioned in the Book of Mormon, so that the reader can get an idea of what was involved.
Recordkeeping is mentioned much in the scriptures. It says that we are judged according to the records we keep. That’s why I keep a journal. I have been sharing most of my journal entries on our MDR Ideas blog. I pray that my recordkeeping helps someone who reads it to come closer to God. The Book of Mormon is written for the same purpose.
