Getting Ready to Move


Well, as you may know, we moved into our very first home a couple of months ago. Since Ryan was a youth minister we lived in the youth minister's parsonage (house) behind our church. We loved the house and had many great memories there. But it was very old and started needing a lot of work to upkeep it. So, when Ryan became our senior pastor in April the church voted to allow us to buy our own home. It was such a huge answer to prayer. So, we decided we needed to get some things ready before it was time to move. We needed a dresser for Eli's room and a big girl bed for Mia and prayed that God would provide those super cheap. He answered our prayer again. My sweet friend Melissa found a dresser for Eli at at garage sale for $25 bucks and gave us an old bed of theirs. All we had to do was paint them. So, I wanted to share the before and afters. They turned out just like we wanted. The picture above is a dresser from mine and Ryan's room that we have been wanting to repaint for a long time. We love the outcome. (Sorry the picture is above. My computer has been acting crazy lately)


Now this is the bed that Melissa gave me for Mia


And after

This is the dresser that she found at the garage sale for us.
It had terrible hardware on it!


And after!

Thanks Melissa for being such a sweet friend and giving us all of this. You are the best! And thank you God for always providing for all of our needs, even when they seem small or unimportant.
