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
Another Sunday and another Family Home Evening to share!
Opening Song: Love One Another
Scripture: Ephesians 6:13
Lesson: Do Good
We started off by reading Doctrine and Covenants 58:26-27. (My daughters way of remembering this scripture is a 58 year old man running a marathon 26-27 miles long.) As we discussed this scripture we took away the following points.
- Do good with all your heart.
- Don’t wait to be instructed in all things
Activity: We played a game of Clue. I’m nowhere near as good at this game as I used to be!
Closing Song: Come, Follow Me
Treat: Peanut Butter Cookies
What comes to mind when you think of doing good? I’d love to hear your family home evening experiences!
I’m over at Arizona Mama with a fun activity – Valentine Love Bingo. Check it out, say hi, and party on!
