Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce

Hi y’all! Long time, no hear – I know. We have had our hands full with the twins learning to walk and our two year old learning to be a bossy little lady. Plus our three teens are doing well in school. And of course, baby number seven is growing and kicking up a storm. We’ll be having a gender sonogram soon! It’s an exciting time in our house. We’re using our slow cooker more than ever.

Our new website is up and running, and updated more often. Check us out at http://thecoersfamily.com

Spaghetti is a great weeknight meal for a large family like ours. It’s an inexpensive dish, and when prepared with love, it can be super tasty. I love making spaghetti sauce in our Crock Pot. A few hours of slow cooking gives this beefy sauce a rich flavor. And it couldn’t be easier to throw together a delicious batch of Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce.

Head on over to our site to get our recipe for delicious, hearty spaghetti sauce in your slow cooker: http://www.thecoersfamily.com/crock-pot-spaghetti-sauce/

Give hope to the hopeless

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11

Children are the very picture of Hope. They represent all the bright possibilities of a life unlived, and dreams not yet realized. Their potential can never be accurately measured. They are the hope of their parents, the hope of a generation, the hope of a better future.

Hope is by definition a wish with an expectation of fulfillment. As Christians we have the ultimate Hope. Because of our Lord, we can Hope for the fulfillment of His Glory and to one day stand before Him in worship. It is a beautiful Hope. As Americans, we have the luxury of hope for a better tomorrow. We have opportunities and the resources to work for a better future for ourselves and our families. We plan for retirement, save up for college funds, dream of a better life for our children and grandchildren.

But hope is not a feeling everyone can share. There are families today surrounded by the harshest realities of poverty who can not imagine a better tomorrow. For them, there is no dream of something more – there is only the crushing struggle to survive another day. Things we take for granted: education, comfort, happiness are beyond their reach.

“LORD, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them.” – Psalm 10:17

Christ has given us the ultimate Hope. And as His servants, we can extend hope to others.
