On the bright side

As I was driving my 7-year-old daughter, Anna, to school one morning, she exclaimed, "There is the temple!"

That started a discussion on varied subjects-- from the temple's beauty to one of its purposes, baptism for the dead. This, in turn, led to a discussion of family history research. I commented that maybe we could trace our ancestors all the way back to Adam."Who's that?" Anna questioned.

I explained that he was the very first man on the earth.

Appearing surprised, Anna asked, "Was he a Holt?"
