Reflecting on his own attempt to maintain a customary magazine, he remarked:
When the Prophet Joseph geared up the Quorum of the Twelve, he recommended them to maintain a heritage in their lives. I made a list from the 1st sermon I heard, and from that day earlier i've got saved a regular magazine. every time I heard Joseph Smith pontificate, train, or prophesy, I regularly felt it my responsibility to put in writing it. i might write the heritage of that Church and go away on list the works and teachings of the prophets, of the apostles and elders. i've got recorded approximately all of the sermons and teachings that I ever heard from the Prophet Joseph, i've got in my magazine some of the sermons of President Brigham younger, and such males as Orson Hyde, Parley P. Pratt and others.
Through his skillful, encouraged management and course, he helped lead to lodging and alter, best the Church into the social, cultural, and spiritual mainstream of yank society. Thomas G. Alexander, one in all Woodruff's biographers, observed:
He is arguably the 3rd most vital determine in all of LDS church background after Joseph Smith, who all started Mormonism, and Brigham younger, who led the Saints to Utah and supervised the early colonization of the intermountain west. . .
Relatively well-educated, well-read, and well-traveled, Woodruff mixed an artistic brain, useful inventiveness, and actual vigour with a feeling of private piety unsurpassed by means of any nineteenth-century chief. Woodruff combined officially expert yet rough-hewn highbrow presents. . . [and] an organization dependence on thought. . . with a robust feel of non-public future and Providential protection.
