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!

Tag Archives: Articles of Faith
This week’s Family Home Evening lesson is a simple one about the Articles of Faith. The Articles of Faith are the basic beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in a concise and straightforward 13 points. Joseph Smith wrote them for publication in the Chicago Democrat newspaper at the invitation of John Wentworth. The kids are much better at memorizing them than I am, but I made a handy matching game that helps us all (yes, even me) remember the main points. Here’s my cheat sheet so you can make your own cards.
1st Article of Faith – Godhead
2nd Article of Faith – Adam
3rd Article of Faith – Atonement
4th Article of Faith – First Principles
5th Article of Faith – Hands
6th Article of Faith – Organization
7th Article of Faith – Gifts
8th Article of Faith – Word of God
9th Article of Faith – Revelation
10th Article of Faith – Ten Tribes
11th Article of Faith – Worshiping
12th Article of Faith – Law
13th Article of Faith – Praiseworthy
Whenever someone makes a match, they read or recite that Article of Faith. If I played this every few days, I might actually get them to stick in my head!
We played What If? for our activity and ate ice cream for our treat.
The person in charge of the lesson for Family Home Evening wasn’t feeling well, so we all pitched in with this impromptu substitution by each of us preparing a brief spiritual thought.
In the story of Korihor, we learn the Lord uses the wicked to punish the wicked.
Remember the Lord to avoid His displeasure.
This honor code reminds us to look out for the good things in the world that bring beauty to our lives and fills them with virtue.
Watch you enemies to make sure they don’t enter your life.
We played a card game called Bluff for our activity and enjoyed Fantasy Fudge for our treat.
