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.

September’s gone and the holiday season is officially beginning around here. We pulled the Halloween decorations out of the closet yesterday. Hopefully we’ll get them up today. My house will be be decorated from now until January. Before I embrace the October, I’ll sum up the month past.
1 – Super fun meeting for our new book club.
2.2 – Pounds gained! I’m so disappointed, but it’s understandable with all my snacking trying to stay awake while reading hours worth of a dry nutrition text book. Ironic, I know.
3 – Family history names checked for accuracy.
8 – Chapters read in my nutrition text book.
9 – Nutrition labs completed.
10 – Challenge projects completed.
12 – Scrapbook layouts completed.
20 – Nutrition assignments completed.
1541 – Page views. I’m surprised at how many are still from my old domain.
There are way too many school related numbers for September! Only a couple more weeks left until my life can get back to “normal”. How did your month add up?
After 1 3/4 years, I finally finished reading the entire Old Testament this morning! The Old Testament is challenging, not just because of the language and the customs, but the chronology. I get so confused when the story hops time periods , and then the Israelites split into two groups. But reading the whole thing through helped me to start recognizing the jumps because the names became more familiar.
Once I got past the language and the chronology, I could see the numerous symbolism to Jesus Christ and his constant and unwavering love for us. I’ve always known that studying the scriptures is a process, that’s why we read them over and over again. It has been especially clear to me as I read the Old Testament. Once I gained a little understanding, my knowledge base grew, then my knowledge grew – and the cycle continues.
I am grateful for the scriptures. I know they bring us knowledge and understanding. I also know that those gifts don’t come without a price, you actually have to read them.
