    Hi, Adriel. My name is Shakeeka Redfearn. I live in the state of South Carolina. I stumbled upon your blog while my husband and I were doing a DIY for my son’s toddler loft bed. However, I was encouraged when I began browsing around your other links. Three years ago we lost one of our twin boys to twin to twin transfusion. Being a Christian that has loved and been committed to God for the last 13 years, death of one of my babies was a hard pill to swallow. I said all that because I felt like I was developing a subtle anger for God because my prayers, my husband’s prayers and the people that were interceding on our behalf were not answered. Thankfully, I know that in order to draw closer to God I have to pray and study His Word. After two years, we decided to have another baby. Sadly, I miscarried with this one…on the exact same day we lost our son. My heart wasn’t as broken this time, not because of lack of love, but I began to wonder more about life and its disappointments. I began to question God’s promises that maybe he meant those for the “certain” groups being addressed in the Bible. I found myself being as a plank drifting in the middle of the ocean. Waiting. Waiting for someone, anyone to save me from all of life’s emotional despairs. Praise God. Although it seems to have been a long time coming my heart is open to the direction of his love again. I know that he is the creator of life and that satan’s evil forces do everything in their power to try to prevent us from experiencing such a love as the love of Jesus. I am thankful to come out of such a darkness because although I appeared solid and strong on the outside, I felt as if I was crumbling on the inside. Although I never “turned” away from God, I know there is much more abundance and joy to experience by being deeply in love with him. Our family, my husband, two boys, and I, are welcoming a little within the next five weeks. I thank you for your encouraging words and your ability to stand on the love of God so that Christian moms that have battled the “whys” of this life have an extra place to help rebuild their peace.

      Thanks for your message and sharing your story here. You’ve experienced heartbreak upon heartbreak and I’m so sorry for your loss and pain. Huge congratulations on your new little one and I pray God covers your family with so much grace as you process it all—the hope and promise as well as the pain. x

      Hi Dorothy. We actually just used the existing kitchen that was already in there. We painted all the cabinets white, painted the little fridge a mint green color, tiled the backsplash, and replaced the bench top with a wooden one. We got the wooden bench top from Bunnings—the ones offered at IKEA were much more expensive and were thicker/more solid (so heavier). And no, unfortunately we don’t have a bathroom. That would be an awesome addition but it wasn’t in our budget (and we also didn’t’ want to lose our closet space since we were living in it!). Best of luck with your van! We had a lot of fun fixing it up—hope you do too. 🙂
