What does God look like?

Today after church Anna-Maria asked me "What does God look like?" It warmed my heart that a 3 year old would have such spiritual sensitivity to ponder a question such as this. I asked her what she thought, but she shrugged her shoulders and said she didn't know. So I asked her if she thought he looked like a bear or a butterfly. She disagreed, but thought he looked like a person.... She wanted further details about how our Heavenly Father looks like, but unfortunately I don't have those answers.

She next exclaimed "I don't even know his name!" He is called Heavenly Father... but that wasn't good enough... "what is his first name and last name?" she asked. It is great she is beginning to sense Heavenly Father is close enough to her that she is wanting to learn more about him. I guess the best place to continue this dialog with her is through the scriptures... which gives me a topic for family home evening tonight.
