Coers Family Laundry Soap


Our family of eight – soon to be nine – can dirty up some clothes, let me tell you. Plus we have twins in cloth diapers. Our laundry is no joke. To save money, my husband recently explored Pinterest to look for a good DIY homemade laundry soap recipe. I’m always fascinated when I catch a guy on Pinterest. It’s like seeing a wild animal wandering around in the city.

Ways to Shine

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” – Matthew 5:14

As Christians we are called to show God’s love to the world. How do we show love? Through actions. Not because we feel like we “should” – but because this love inside us is so great it spills out on the lives of those around us. Christ told us to love your neighbor. We are all neighbors. If you share this earth with me, you’re my neighbor.

CDFC: A Look at the Diapers We Love

Leave a comment

It’s Day 3 of Cloth Diapers for a Cause here at the Coers house.

Just to recap: disposable diapers cost about 36 cents each. With three little bottoms to cover, we could spend almost $8 a day on diapers. By using cloth diapers daily here in our home, we can save about $2,900 a year. On Fridays, the money we save using cloth diapers will be set aside to donate to World Vision’s Clean Water Fund. In just four Fridays, we will save $25 – enough for a small donation to help provide clean water for families in another country.
