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!

Opening Song: Give Said the Little Stream
Scripture: John 3:16
Lesson: Love at Home with Service
How do we serve our family?
- Cook for them
- Do their laundry
- Drive them (these were my answers)
- Give gifts
- Play games together
- Help each other
- Work out problems without arguing
We’ve used Love One Another charts before and it’s time for another one. It’s a great way to help your family be aware of all the little acts of service that are being performed, usually unnoticed. Once we start noticing them and thinking about them, they increase! Talk about a win win.
Activity: Mormon Ads. We searched quotes about families and chose one to make our own Mormon Ad. I chose “Individual progression is fostered in the family which is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.” by Russel M. Nelson.
Closing Song: Old McDonald Had a Farm (just for my grandson)
Treat: Red Cake
This week’s family home evening was full of planning and preparation. We started off our evening with our night’s Christmas story. Many years ago my sister in law gave us a binder with a scripture, story and song for every night from December 1 through Christmas Eve.
After our story, we did some Christmas planning for gifts from our family. Our activity was wrapping some of the gifts from our family. The wrapping is much less tedious when we work together.
Our treat was Christmas fudge.

It’s me, Raejean; I regained my computer from my kiddo. This week started out crazy and has left me frazzled with no brain cells for writing. Thanks for the somewhat truthful guest post in the style of It’s a Crafty Life’s Ten on Tuesday!
