Weekly Quote: Jini Roby

Weekly quotes come from BYU faculty members who are regarded by their students as being both spiritually strengthening and intellectually enlarging.

“[It’s] about caring about that individual student and seeing that individual student … as Heavenly Father sees that person.  … And to be an instrument in the lives of these individuals—to help enlighten their lives, to increase their capacity to appreciate who they are and … the world around them, and have increase in their capacity to engage with other people—to be an instrument in that process seems really an amazing opportunity. And I think if we can see it is a privilege, and it’s not something that anybody would be entrusted with,  I think it would be a much more enjoyable, meaningful experience.

– Jini Roby, Department of Social Work
