When Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve was in law school, he had to make the most of limited time with his daughters. He recalls, "My favorite play activity with the little girls was 'daddy be a bear.' When I came home from my studies for a few minutes at lunch and dinnertime, I would set my books on the table and drop down on all fours on the linoleum. Then, making the most terrible growls, I would crawl around the floor after the children, who fled with screams, but always begged for more."

Dallin H. Oaks, "The Student Body and the President", in Brigham Young University 1975 Speeches

Some info on Elder Oaks:

Jay teaches seminary at the moment and today a person came from Salt Lake who closely works with Elder Oaks. He told the class that Elder Oaks wakes up at 4am each morning and studies the scriptures for an hour. Then he goes for a long run with his wife.
