    2. Another General Conference talk (Oct. 2011) prettied up and made into a book by this author.  You can read the original discourse HERE or purchase it for free HERE for your Kindle.  This counsel I greatly enjoyed.  I like how Pres. Uchtdorf premised this talk telling of the German legend of how this beautiful flower got it's name "just as God had finished naming all the plants, one was left unnamed. A tiny voice spoke out, “Forget me not, O Lord!” And God replied that this would be its [...]

    3. Tis is such a sweet message for everyone to remember, but he geared this especially to women. I think women need to be reminded the very most of how important and special they are to our Father in Heaven. My mother sent this to me and then I got the e-book so I always have it with me. It is one of the few that I have both ways.One of my most favorite quotes from this talk/book is this: "While understanding the what and the how of the gospel is necessary, the eternal fire and majesty of the gospe [...]

    4. I know that this talk was intended originally or women but if you substitute the feminine words for masculine ones then this talk is equally as relevant to men lol. President Uchtdorf is such an amazing man. This talk is warming, uplifting and down right inspiring :)

    5. What a sweet, small book! I read this book when President Uchtdorf gave it as a published talk in our church's Ensign magazine.

The tone of this book was very uplifting and encouraging to women. He tells us 5 things never to forget:1-to be patient with yourself2-the difference between a good sacrifice and a foolish sacrifice3- [...]

    8. Why are these kinds of stories so good? It's because they are true. Every single thing that was said is true now, 20 years ago, and forever into the future. Forget not that you are not alone, you don't have to be sad. You can be anything you want to be and come out on top.

    21. Forget Me Not is one of President Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talks, from the October 2011 Semi-Annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was later reproduced as a small booklet and as a Kindle single. Some of my favorite quotes from his talk included:1. "God wants to help us to eventually turn all of our weaknesses into strengths, but He knows that this is a long-term goal. He wants us to become perfect, and if we stay on the path of discipleship, one day we will [...]
