SHIDHABAL - Do you think we can still remember all things pertaining to all the things that happen to us in this world, the feelings etc., when we are in Heaven? or any kingdoms of God?

JOEL - Yes, we will be able to remember this life and retain our personalities and feelings in heaven, otherwise what would be the reason for living this life if we don't retain the memory of the experiences and lessons learned here? We will remember both the good and bad things we don't repent for:

"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment." (Matt 12: 36)

In order to give an account of these things we would have to be able to remember them.

The Church's "Plan of Salvation" booklet says the following:
"At death, your spirit will leave your body and go to the spirit world, which is a place of learning and preparation. In the spirit world, your memories of this life will remain with you."
(See Plan of Salvation)

In the LDS book "Gospel Fundamentals" we learn:
"Jesus loves us very much, but He is a just judge and must judge us by the kind of lives we lived. All we have thought or said or done is recorded, both in our minds and in records that have been kept. Jesus knows all of our deeds, and when we stand before Him we will remember them, too." (See Gospel Fundamentals, Ch 35)

Not only will we be able to remember what happened in this life we will be able to remember what happened in our pre-mortal life. President George Q. Cannon said:
"You have heard of men who have been drowning or have fallen from a great height describe that in about a second or two every event of their lives passed before them like a panorama with the rapidity of lightning. This shows what power there is latent in the human mind, which, when quickened by the power of God, will make men and women recall not only that which pertains to this life, but our memories will stretch back to the life we had before we came here, with the associations we had with our Father and God and with those bright spirits that stand around His throne and with the righteous and holy ones." (Gospel Truth: Discourses and Writings of President George Q. Cannon, p. 60)
