My Crazy Life

My life is so crazy lately. God has blessed us with a roof over our heads. Its not like the home we had in Missouri but at least we are not staying with family any more. There are people out there that don't even have a roof, so we are blessed.
I will ask you to keep us in your prayers so that we can sell the house in Missouri and we can get a house with a little more room.
But in the mean time I am trying to go to school, be involved with my kid's school, and unpack.
I am looking for healthy, slow cooker recipes to make my life a little easier, and still have dinner as a family. If any of you know of a good recipes please let me know. Here is one of my favorites:

Chicken Taco Soup
By Anne Coleman (

Hands-On Time: 5 minutes
Ready In: 20-25 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
1 pound boneless skinless chicken, cooked and shredded

2 cups cooked kidney beans 
(I use chili beans)
2 cups prepared salsa

6 cups chicken stock

1 packet taco seasoning

2 cups tortilla chips, crushed

Combine chicken, beans, salsa, stock and seasoning in a 2-quart soup pot.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat until soup is simmering.
Let cook for 15 to 20 minutes so flavors blend well.
Top each bowl of soup with crushed tortilla chips.

Switch the beans to pinto if you like and add sour cream and a sprinkling of cheddar cheese to each bowl for a change of pace.
