This wonderful advice can be used at home and church, for males and females, young and old.
Be sure to put copies of the emails or letters in a scrapbook or journal. You could even add pictures.
I've been in and around the Young Men program for a number of years, and every year I ask the Priests who are graduating from high school to do two things:
1) Watch the following General Conference talk by Elder Sterling W. Sill.
(It's more powerful than reading it.)
2) Write a letter or email to 10 of the people in their life that have provided the biggest "transfusions" into their life and tell them specifically what they have received from them.
One of the best quotes out of this talk is, "In fact, if you were to take away from me that which properly belonged to somebody else, there wouldn’t be very much of me left."
I have made a great discovery that everybody ought to make for himself,
and that is that from the holy scriptures and the great literature and the
uplifting philosophies and from our own personal meditations and experience
we can extract those little segments of success; and if they are properly packaged
by writing them down and memorizing them, we can use them at our will
to infuse righteousness and success into our own lives.
