Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

I started off our lesson with an object lesson; showing an unsharpened pencil. We talked about the useful part of the pencil. My kiddos said its the eraser, but it’s actually the lead. I compared us to the lead of a pencil and the wood surrounding the lead is pride; it needs to be stripped away to be a useful instrument in God’s hands.
I took the rest of my lesson from President Uchtdorf’s talk Pride and the Priesthood. My Two Cents has a great outline. She even has a quiz! I also included a story from Deseret Books Humility lesson. I focused on how when we are humble, we are teachable.
Our activity was a combo. First we played hide and seek, and then we played sardines with the last person hiding. If you haven’t played sardines, one person hides and everyone seeks. When someone finds them, they hide near them until only one person is left seeking.
We finished off the night with Browned Butter Cookies.
