Project Complete!

I am so excited to finally be able to share with you the project that has kept us busy during the last few weeks! This was one of the hardest and most time consuming projects I have ever taken on, but it was so well worth all the hard work.

I have the privilege to teach the preschooler and kindergarten Sunday school class and for the longest time I've wanted to remodel the room we meet in but was always afraid to start such a huge task all by myself. This year, we had an answer to my prayers added to our church family:) Meet my new helper and friend, Diesica.
She recently married a childhood friend and since then has become my awesome friend and an amazing helper! I can't begin to describe how thankful I am for her sweet spirit. It's been so much fun working with her and getting to know her better. We've had so much fun  out shopping or working together...there always is a ton of laughter :) I am extremely grateful for her fun spirit and her willingness to help. (I'm also thankful for her hubby who so graciously "borrowed" her to us :)

We repaired and painted the furniture, desks, and chairs.
We had a HUGE project ahead of us and also some major difficulties..most of all, finances. It was amazing to see how God supplied almost everything we needed. He used many different people who so graciously gave. I am just overwhelmed at God's goodness to us!

This is kind of what the room looked like before. Bare, bare white walls...
Someone gave up the paint they had for their own house so that we could paint the room...and this is what it looks like after we finished!
Amazing, isn't it?!?! I am just thrilled with the results. It was so worth all the hard work we went through. I am also thankful for my wonderful hubby and some other men from our church who worked long hours some evenings to paint the room for us! They did such a good job!

We're beyond thrilled with the results! I am sure the kids will enjoy it. There are still many things we'd like to do, but we're taking one step at a time.
 I can't get over how cute it looks....God is so good! Can't you tell how excited I am?!?!
