{A&E} Rare Photo of a Young Pres. Uchtdorf Discovered

Ashley Jones - July 20, 2011

Did you know there is only one picture of President and Sister Uchtdorf as young newlyweds? The catch is, however, if you were to search for it on Google, you wouldn’t find it. Want to know why? Its existence was discovered only a couple of months ago. (President and Sister Uchtdorf didn’t even know it existed.)

Doug Halladay, a former missionary who served in Germany, was going through his mission photos and slides and came across this photo of a very young (and super classy, if you ask me) version of Dieter and Harriet Uchtdorf in Berlin. Mr. Halladay sent it to President Uchtdorf’s office in Salt Lake City and the picture was promptly sent to Deseret Book Publishing in order to be included in President Uchtdorf’s new book, Your Happily Ever After.

I love looking at this picture and getting a glimpse into President and Sister Uchtdorf’s earlier years. Kind of neat to see this picture and think about him as a young pilot having all those experiences he talks about in general conference!

Very Classy. His wife looks like Audrey Hepburn. I am rooting for him to become the next prophet. He is my favorite.

Sorry, artvandalay, but there is almost NO WAY Pres. Uchtdorf could become the "next" prophet. It doesn't work that way. Yes, it's a lovely picture of the Uchtdorfs.

I think this is such a treasure trove for a beautiful couple! I would like to say though, I think Elder Uchtdorf islike a good red wine, betters with age, lol. He is as handsome as ever!A truly lovely couple!

How cute are they?! I agree with the others who think that Sis. Uchtdorf looks like Audrey Hepburn in this photo...but prettier, if you ask me. :) My parents met Pres. Uchtdorf a few months before he was called as an apostle, and they said that he is every bit as nice & kind as he seems.
