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!

After quizzing the kiddos what they wanted to learn about for Family Home Evening, my husband chose to teach about the Beatitudes. I think the kiddo that piped up was thinking of President Hinkley’s Be’s, but that’s OK. There’s a great article from the 80’s that helped with the lesson. Someone mentioned the same story about Hugh B. Brown in Sunday School today. I guess I need to listen and let the Lord prune me to what He wants me to be, instead of being what I think is best. This article helped us explain what the different qualities in the Beatitudes mean in a way the children could understand.
We tried a fun new activity, Sign Language Charades. I don’t know where we got this old card game. Whoever is “it” picks a card and does the sign shown, everyone else guesses what the sign means. If no one guesses correctly, than “it” acts out the word charades style. I love games that are fun and you can actually learn something!
We also tried a new treat, Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Thumbprint Cookies. These tasted good and were fun to make since I got so much help with them.
