Speaking at the Tuesday Campus Education Week devotional in the BYU Marriott Center, President Packer told the conference participants to put the lessons of the week to good use.
"I know that you have something to do with the knowledge you will gain in this great education week, for yourself, for your family and for the church," he said.
The devotional is the only general session for Campus Education Week, which offers more than 1,000 classes on a variety of topics. Classes will continue this week through Friday.
President Packer told the audience that those who would protect their families must first acknowledge that evil exists.
