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.
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.
