One evening, our little five-year-old, Natalie, was the voice for our family prayer. She had heard her parents, many times, ask for Heavenly Father’s help. Family concerns, like our aging Grandma Berghouse, were often mentioned. As Natalie concluded her prayer, she asked God to bless Grandma’s birdhouse. (Mormon Mishaps and Mischief, by D.N.

It seems that some people were not comfortable with J. Golden Kimball’s use of colorful language. Someone asked with an accusing tone, “Don’t you think that in the next life you will be held responsible for the use of such language?” His response was, “Hell, no! I repent too fast.” (The J. Golden Kimball Stories, by Eric A. Eliason, p. 107)
