When the Prophet Joseph equipped the Quorum of the Twelve, he recommended them to maintain a background in their lives. I made a list from the 1st sermon I heard, and from that day previously i've got stored an everyday magazine. each time I heard Joseph Smith hold forth, educate, or prophesy, I regularly felt it my accountability to put in writing it. i'd write the heritage of that Church and go away on checklist the works and teachings of the prophets, of the apostles and elders. i've got recorded approximately the entire 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 result in lodging and alter, best the Church into the social, cultural, and spiritual mainstream of yankee society. Thomas G. Alexander, one among Woodruff's biographers, observed:

He is arguably the 3rd most vital determine in all of LDS church heritage 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. . .

Woodruff mixed officially knowledgeable yet rough-hewn highbrow presents. . . [and] an organization dependence on concept. . . with a powerful feel of private future and Providential protection.
