President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, gave a talk titled, Forget Me Not, to the Sisters at the September 24, 2011 General Relief Society Meeting.

We created a large word art Remembrance Chart from President Uchtdorf’s Forget-Me-Not talk for use as a reminder or a handout.

In Forget Me Not, President Uchtdorf, used a tiny flower with five petals, the forget-me-not, at a metaphor for five things it would be wise for the Sisters to never to forget.

  1. Be patient with yourself.
  2. The difference between a good sacrifice and a foolish sacrifice.
  3. Be happy now.
  4. The “Why” of the Gospel.
  5. The Lord loves you.

President Uchtdorf elaborated on each of the five points (five petals). In “Be Happy Now” he told of the children’s story, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, when everybody lost sight of the simple joy of chocolate in their quest for a “Golden Ticket”.

We used several tools to create what we call a Remembrance Chart of President Uchtdorf’s Forget Me Not talk that can also be used as a handout.

Full text of President Uchtdorf’s Forget Me Not presentation is available in the General Relief Society Meeting section of General Conference talks on LDS.org.

Lora came home after the meeting and told me of President Uchtdorf’s Forget Me Not message, then the next day I heard of it again in a ward conference. We spent a lot of time and tools in converting the talk into the Remembrance Chart above. Some of the special things we did in processing Forget Me Not were:

  • Although we used wordle, we independently controlled the size, color, and final position of each word or phrase.
  • Colored “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “chocolate bar” in chocolate colors.
  • Put the five main points in red.
  • Created a graphic for the “Golden Ticket”.
  • Processed a forget-me-not flower image as a centerpiece.
  • Accented some words (Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ) in golden colors.
  • Capitalized “Daughters” to help the sisters remember they are Daughters of Heavenly Father.
  • Colored “Daughters” pink in token of the colorful pink robes worn by the sisters in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir at General Conference the next week. We presume that was done as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but have seen no statement to that effect.
  • We gave the chart a bit of of a cross stitch look.

We welcome your comments and suggestions. Especially any about how the Remembrance Chart helps you remember President Uchtdorf’s Forget Me Not presentation, how we might improve it, or suggestions of other talks to create charts for.
