A thought from Joseph Smith:

Since I have been engaged in laying the foundation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have been prevented in various ways from continuing my journal and history in a manner satisfactory to myself or in justice to the cause. Long imprisonments, vexatious and long-continued law suits, the treachery of some of my clerks, the death of others, and the poverty of myself and brethren from continued plunder and driving, have prevented my handing down to posterity a connected memorandum of events desirable to all lovers of truth; yet I have continued to keep up a journal in the best manner my circumstances would allow, and dictate for my history from time to time, as I have had opportunity so that the labors and suffering of the first Elders and Saints of this last kingdom might not wholly be lost to the world.

  • Why this page was created

    The intro: Welcome to Mormon-J: The LDS Journal-list. These pages were created for LDS writers as a guide to both LDS-oriented journalism resources and LDS historic journals. You'll also find here links to the best resources for professional journalists, and links to other LDS sources unrelated to journalism.

    The theory: Journalism in all its forms -- newspaper and magazine reporting, essays, journals and diaries -- has been the mechanism by which we've kept a history of our society. These pages celebrate the contributions of those who keep the history of the Latter-day Saints by writing it down every day.

    The practice: It's also a gathering place for those who write as Mormons, even when our subject matter turns to computers, business, law, crime, sci-fi ... for every writer tells a little more of our culture in everything he writes.

                                                                           Updated: Friday, 24 January 1997

  • If you have electronic copies of historic (read: Pioneer or pre-1940) journals, this is the place to make it known. We hope to create an archive of these documents at some point in the future, but for now, we'll include links to your address.
  • If you're a published LDS writer, drop us a note. We'll happily create links to your home page or e-mail address. Eventually, we hope to establish a full-fledged LDS writers group.
  • If you want us to include other LDS journalism or history links, let us know! This page will be regularly updated.
