Shelby White


Rebecca’s Rooms got their first opportunity to transform a typical bedroom into a room that was described as breath taken. Not only was the room decorated with painted stripes, polka dots, and a colorful light fixture, it was given a practical change as well. The bedroom door was widened to allow better mobility for the wheel chair. The young lady who was blessed with this new room is Shelby White, daughter of Sara Moellenhoff.

Not able to have a typical bed, Shelby has to use a hospital style bed for her bedroom. It can take away the look of a normal bedroom but Mindy Matherne of Rebeccas’s Rooms sewed material together to cover the head board, foot board and the side rail to give it a beautiful look for a girl’s room. When the family arrived to see the new room for the first time, there were many smiles and tears of joy.

Rebecca’s Rooms was blessed with many volunteers to help get the project done in a timely manner. Whether it was painting, putting in a new floor in the closet, building shelves, sewing, or even cooking, the crew came together to accomplish one goal. It was not so much of a fresh painted wall, but to show love. Part of Rebecca’s Rooms heart is to help families that have someone with a disability but also to show the love of Jesus. Putting words into action.

Not only did Shelby have her room redone, the family was treated to two complimentary nights at River Chase Inn, a $50 gift certificate from Peppers, a $25 gift certificate from Longhorn. and Sara, the mother, was treated to a serenity package at Eden Medispa which was donated by Regina Sims. The package included a facial, manicure, pedicure, and a massage.
