2015 LDS Primary Lesson 1 - God is the Father of My Spirit

'Found some great talks to support today's Primary lesson!

You are a Child of God from President Gordon B. Hinckley on 2003.

Behold Your Little Ones by Boyd K. Packer on April 1973.

Pretend, my little friends, that my hand represents your spirit. It is alive. It can move by itself. Suppose that this glove represents your mortal body. It cannot move. When the spirit enters into your mortal body, then it can move and act and live. Now you are a person—a spirit with a body, living on the earth.
It was not intended that we stay here forever. Just for a lifetime. Little ones, you are just beginning your lifetime.
... Little children, our Heavenly Father knew that we would need help. So, in the plan, he provided for someone to come into the world and help us.
Four Titles by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf on April 2013.

One title that defines all of us in the most fundamental way is son of Heavenly Father. No matter what else we are or do in life, we must never forget that we are God’s literal spirit children. We were His children before we came to this world, and we will be His children forevermore. This basic truth should change the way we look at ourselves, our brothers and sisters, and life itself.

Heavenly Father Has a Special Plan by Elder Yoshihiko Kikchi on April 2000.
