About the Book

"Leaves from My Journal" is a well-known text authored by Wilford Woodruff, a pivotal figure in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). The story of this book presents an appealing firsthand account of Wilford Woodruff's experiences, religious insights, and important events in the LDS Church's early history. Wilford Woodruff's diary entries, gathered and edited in this volume, provide an extensive and intimate viewpoint on the LDS Church's growth and development over the nineteenth century. His works detail his own religious experience, involving his conversion to Mormonism, missionary action, and meetings with additional significant church leaders that include Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. One of the most significant parts of "Leaves from My Journal" is Woodruff's account of the church's migration to the American West, particularly the perilous trip of the pioneers to Utah. His tales of these experiments, particularly the ill-fated Willie and Martin Handcart Companies, are heartbreaking and significant in history. Woodruff also provides insights on early Mormon religious beliefs and practices, which include the significance of temple ordinances and revelations received by church leaders, throughout the book.

About Author

Wilford Woodruff

Wilford Woodruff Sr. was an American religious leader who served as the fourth president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1889 until his death on September 2, 1898. In 1890, he prohibited the public practice of plural marriage among LDS Church members. After researching Restorationism as a young adult, Woodruff joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In Kirtland, Ohio, he met Joseph Smith, the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, before joining Zion's Camp in April 1834. Before returning to Kirtland, he served as a missionary in Missouri, preaching in Arkansas and Tennessee. That year, he married his first wife, Phebe, and served a mission in New England. In July 1838, Smith summoned Woodruff to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and he was ordained in April 1839. From August 1839 until April 1841, Woodruff worked as a missionary in England, guiding converts to Nauvoo. At the time of Smith's death, Woodruff was promoting Smith's presidential campaign. When he and Phebe returned to Nauvoo, they journeyed to England, where Woodruff preached and assisted local members. The Woodruffs returned to America just as the Saints were being forced out of Nauvoo, and Woodruff oversaw forty families at Winter Quarters, where he was sealed to his first plural wives.
