Summary: Inspired by the five petals of the tiny forget-me-not flower, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf reminds us of five things we will be wise to never forget:

To be patient with ourselves
To distinguish between a good sacrifice and a foolish sacrifice
To be happy now
To focus on the “why” of the gospel
To know that the Lord loves each of us infinitely.

My Review

I was absolutely thrilled when my friend at Deseret Book asked me if I wanted to preview this book for her.  This talk had a great impact on me.  I loved it.  In fact, I was crying so hard, that a couple cute girls in my ward turned around to make sure I was okay.  The most important thing I learned was that I, Mindy, am not forgotten by my Heavenly Father.  I just need to come to Him with my worries, concerns, and He will be there for me.

5 out of 5 stars.  President Uchtdorf has always had a special place in my heart, and this sweet book clearly is one of the many reasons why.

I am giving away a copy of Forget Me Not. The giveaway starts today (Thursday), and ends Saturday night.  US ONLY.  What a great Mother’s Day gift!  Just leave a thoughtful comment below, and you’re entered.

  1. I loved that talk too! I watched it at home, going to the Stake Center doesn’t end up working with our birthday schedule in September! But I was crying on my couch when I watched the talk.

  2. I love Pres. Uchtdorf! And I loved this talk. I got to be in the Conference Center to hear it. I would love to have the book!

  3. I just ordered this to be delivered to my mom for mother’s day (she doesn’t live by me) and I SO wished I was ordering it for myself. It seems to hit right along the lines of what I’ve been struggling with myself. It would be wonderful to win this. Thank you hosting the give away!

  4. I just ordered this and had it sent to my mom for Mother’s day (she doesn’t live by me). I would love to win this book, it seems like it’s something I could use right now :). Thanks for the give away!
    Also, I tried posting before and it went all weird so if I end up with two comments on here, I’m sorry!

  5. I loved this talk, too. I always enjoy listening to President Uchtforf talk, whether it includes airplanes or his native country, it’s always heartwarming and full of love.

  8. I have been waiting for this book. If I won, my wait would be over :)

  9. Would love to win a copy of this book to refer to often. Why is it that it’s so easy to forget that God hasn’t forgotten us?

  10. I was just thinking that this would be a good Mother’s Day gift. Such a wonderful talk. We are all important, even if we think we are insignificant.

  11. I love President Uchtdorf. Very inspirational man. Thanks for your review. :)

  12. I love the point of being happy now. I try to remember this because life is hard for me now with a baby that doesn’t like to sleep. But I have to remember to be happy now that I have a healthy, beautiful baby even when I just want to sleep-in for once in my life.
