Snowy Days + Warm Soup= Perfect Combination

Chicken Tortilla Soup!
My FAVORITE 'stoup' to make during cold snowy days-from my mom-especially after a day of snowboarding or sledding. Prep Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 1 hour minimum
  • 4-6 chicken breasts well-cooked (boiled)
  • 1 28oz. can of diced tomatoes 
  • 1-2 10 3/4oz can of cream of chicken
  • 1 small Spanish onion chopped
  • 1 10 3/4oz can of beef broth or beef bouillon cubes
  • 36-48oz. of chicken broth
  • 2 little cans of diced green chilies
  • garlic minced (as much as you like)
  • 1 Tbl of chili powder
  • 1Tbl of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of lemon pepper
  • 1 Tbl of hot sauce (I add more)
  • pinch of salt
  • Taco chips
  • Avocado
  • Dollop of sour cream
  • Cheddar cheese
In a large pot drizzle olive oil on med-high heat. Saute green chillies, chopped onion, and garlic. Add beef broth, cream of chicken, add spices and sauces. Once boiling reduce heat, add chopped chicken and tomatoes. Add chicken broth either from boiled chicken or from carton. I add chicken stock last so that the pot doesn't overflow. Cook for 1 hour minimum. The longer it cooks the better it tastes. Add chip, cheese, sour cream, and avocado if desired. Also if a dairy allergy-omit the dairy products and add 1 cup of cooked Quinoa to thicken the soup.

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
