faithful details

When I was home last week, our family started talking about a Family Home Evening we had a couple years ago. In my house, we used to have a scripture that hung next to the fireplace from D&C 109:8 it said, "Organize yourselves; Prepare every needful thing, and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, and house of order, a house of God." This lesson was specifically on our family's need to have a clean house. Mom wasn't pleased with how messy we had become and used this scripture as motivation for making sure our house had order. At the end of her lesson, she said something like, "Does that sound like something you guys can do?" And after a little silence my brother said,
"Can't we just have a house of faith?"
