A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on beginning, belief, birth, ideas, life, and mortality

The idea that life began with mortal birth is preposterous. There is no way to explain life if you believe that.

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on anxiety, challenge, day, depression, disappointment, failure, good, life, purpose, struggle, and suffering

It was meant to be that life would be a challenge. To suffer some anxiety, some depression, some disappointment, even some failure is normal. Teach our members that if they have a good, miserable day once in a while, or several in a row, to stand steady and face them. Things will straighten out. There is great purpose in our struggle in life.

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on protest and worry

Somewhere there is a message in the protest of the man who said, "You can't tell me that worry doesn't help. The things I worry about never happen."

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on ancestry, birth, children, fatherhood, generations, god, heaven, mind, mortality, nobility, people, spirit, and truth

You are a child of God. He is father of your spirit. Spiritually you are of noble birth, the offspring of the King of Heaven. Fix that truth in your mind and hold to it. However many generations in your mortal ancestry, no matter what race or people you represent, the pedigree of your spirit can be written on a single line. You are a child of God!

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on courage, errors, faith, time, and truth

What a wonderful time to be young. You will see events in your lifetime that will test your courage and extend your faith. If you will face the sunlight of truth, the shadows of discouragement and sin and error will fall behind you. You must never give up!

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on children, fatherhood, god, and relatives

Get to Know Yourself Once you start getting acquainted with yourselves, finding out who you are and where you belong and who your relatives are, spiritually speaking as well as in the earthly frame of reference, you come to the astounding, overwhelming realization that you are a child of God-that you belong to Him, that He is your Father. He is our Father.

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on children, food, and spirit

The spiritually starving hesitate to partake of the Spirit like a child's reaction to new and strange food. They must be offered a tiny bite on a spoon.

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on debt, justice, learning, life, and purity

Justice can seem to be so very demanding. But we must learn that when we put everything as right as we can put it right, it is Justice who invokes the Atonement, orders the adversary off our property, and posts the notice that his agents will make no more collections from us. Our debt will have been paid in full by the only perfect pure person who ever lived.
