Boyd K. Packer  1924 - 2015

Passed away July 3, 2015

"The gospel teaches us to be happy, to have faith rather than fear, to find hope and overcome despair, to leave darkness and turn toward the light of the everlasting gospel."  -- Boyd K. Packer

"It's a glorious time to live!  No matter what trials await us, we can find the answer to that question, What shall we do? We, and those we love, will be guided and corrected and protected, and we will be comforted." -- Boyd K. Packer
 "We do not often give credit for the spiritual maturity of children, particularly little children. There are some things they know. They need not be taught them; they just know them to begin with."  -- Boyd K. Packer

"He would also supply them with means to communicate with Him from Father to child and from child to Father. Every child of our Father sent to earth is provided with the Spirit of Christ, or the Light of Christ. We are, none of us, left here alone without hope of guidance and redemption." -- Boyd K. Packer
 "Be a responsible member of your family. Take care of your possessions - your clothing, your property. Do not be wasteful. Learn to be content." -- Boyd K. Packer

"We find ourselves in the unusual position of having an endless supply of teachers and leaders, among every nation and kindred and tongue and people, all over the world. There is a unique equality among members. No one of us is to consider himself of more value than the other." -- Boyd K Packer
 Life moves all too fast. When you feel weak, discouraged, depressed, or afraid, open the Book of Mormon and read. Do not let too much time pass before reading a verse, a thought, or a chapter."  -- Boyd K. Packer

"We need not live in fear of the Future. We have every reason to rejoice and a little reason to fear. If we follow the promptings of the Spirit, we will be safe, whatever the future holds. We will be shown what to do."  -- Boyd K. Packer
 I learned too what power there can be in music. When music is reverently presented, it can be akin to revelation. At times, I think, it cannot be separated from the voice of the Lord, the quiet, still voice of the Spirit." --- Boyd K. Packer

"One of the adversary's sharpest tools is to convince us that we are no longer worthy to pray. No matter who you are or what you may have done, you can always pray."  -- Boyd K. Packer
"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." -- Boyd K. Packer

"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." -- Boyd K. Packer

"Progression you can start from where you are" -- Boyd K. Packer

"Our competition in life is solely with our old self" -- Boyd K. Packer
