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.

Now that the holidays are over, we’re getting back into our Family Home Evening groove. Although, celebrating Christmas is the best Family Home Evening ever! This week’s lesson comes from a very thoughtful lady in my Ward who hands out these cool little home evening packets twice a month in Relief Society that tie into our lessons from the manual. Last week’s was on integrity. Since it was my turn to teach the lesson and I hadn’t figured out what I was going to teach, I decided this was the perfect lesson.
I shared a couple of stories, one called Integrity from a talk by President Tanner and one called Andy’s Choice by Darlene Young. Then I read a paragraph about each of the prophets from Joseph Smith to Gordon B. Hinckley that showed an aspect of integrity and challenged the family to relate it to their lives. We learned that integrity is more than being honest under every condition; it is also fulfilling your duty regardless of the challenges, it is working hard, following the spirit, listening to church leaders, and having faith.
Our activity was playing Jenga and we enjoyed homemade Peanut Brittle for our treat.
