Oregon FCE Creed

"Let us seek contentment and joy in living. Get rid of all false estimates. Set up high ideals - first love our Master and know His will. Have a comfortable home and happy family relationships, with a strong devotion to the right that will not swerve. Have a simple religion, empty of bigotry and full of tolerance. Have good friends, worthy of being loved. Develop a good neighborly community contact. Have books full of inspiration. Have beauty of our own making. Have innocent pleasures that bring no one pain or remorse.  Be homemakers who love growing in knowledge and development. Let this be the philosophy which our FCE study Groups implement and promote. For in this way our greatness lies." ~Mrs. W. Parker and Mrs. A. Willey  (Revised 2005)
