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!

Recently we had a scare that our water was contaminated with e coli (yuck!). We were told to drink bottled water or boil it first. We were encouraged to not even use the water for rinsing our toothbrushes and I heard some debate about if we should use it to wash our hands and bodies. A few days later we were told the test declaring our water undrinkable was a false positive. The whole process was inconvenient, but I’m grateful that we have a decent start on our food storage – including water.
Food wasn’t an issue, but obviously water was. I was at our church building when I heard about the situation. I’m grateful I could pull one of our cases of water bottles out of my storage and load up the fridge. I needed to go to the store the next day and I decided to get another case or two, just in case the problem lasted a while. The shelves were empty!
I’m grateful for church leaders that warn and guide us to navigate life’s challenges, from contaminated water to a slew of spiritual situations. I’m glad my pantry is stocked as well as it is, but I have plenty of room for improvement. I hope our water scare will motivate us to be more diligent in following a prophet’s council. Costco run anyone?
