It was a simple lesson for the couple to give their four-year-old primary class–the lesson about the Holy Ghost. Adam used the object lesson of a light bulb and told them of the light that would guide them toward Heavenly Father. Stacy told them about the warmth they would feel inside.

Little Thomas, confused at the lesson, raised his hand, “So, are we supposed to eat light bulbs?” (Mormon Mishaps and Mischief, by D.N. Giles and C.L. Beck, p. 76)
