One Saturday, Gabe and his wife took their four children to the baptism of the grandson of one of the converts from Gabe’s mission to Mexico. Gabe explained to his children that the baptism would be performed in Spanish, so it was okay if they didn’t understand the words.

Gabe’s youngest son, Dan, looked worried. “But Dad, what if Heavenly Father doesn’t speak Spanish?”

Gabe’s wife calmly explained, “Heavenly Father speaks all languages, sweetie.”

The boy’s eyes widened in amazement. “Wow. That must mean he has a lot of homework.” (Mormon Mishaps and Mischief, by D.N. Giles and C.L. Beck, p. 62)

“Really?” the teenage daughter said smiling. “Then who is the baldheaded man who lives with us?” (Stories and Jokes of Mormon Folks, compiled by Bruce E. Dana, p. 66)

One night a father called on his five-year-old son, Tommy, to say the blessing on the food. The family closed their eyes and bowed their heads and waited...and waited...and waited. Finally the father said, “Tommy,” he prompted. “Go ahead.”

“But, Dad,” said Tommy, his eyes brimming with tears. “If I thank Heavenly Father for the spinach, won’t he know I’m telling a lie?” (Best-Loved Humor of the LDS People, p. 105)

Golden tried several times to get it right and then finally he gave up and said, “Oh Father, you know who this is” and proceeded with the blessing. (The J. Golden Kimball Stories, by Eric A. Eliason, p. 97)
