About Brooke


Hi there! I’m Brooke. I’m a Bible studying, Scripture memorizing, homeschooling mom of my sweet, fifth grader, wife to my wonderful husband of 19 years, Bible College graduate and child of the Most High God.

I create printables to make life more enjoyable and to add more of God's Word around my house. You can find my printables on Etsy at my Etsy shop: Joyful Life Printables. Currently my shop is featuring Scripture Printables as well as a floral-themed Gratitude Journal available in three sizes.

Thank you again for visiting. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at devowriter@yahoo.com. If you are an editor, interested in me writing for your publication, I'd be interested in hearing more about your needs. God bless you richly! 

What It Means To Be Hemmed In By God's Love

You hem me in, behind and before… Psalm 139:5

When God hem’s us in it is literally to be surrounded by the Lord, our fortress and our defense.

“As though we were caught in an ambush, or besieged by an army which has wholly 
beleaguered the city walls, we are surrounded by the Lord. God has set us where we be, 
and beset us wherever we be. Behind us there is God recording our sins, or in grace 
blotting out the remembrance of them; and before us there is God foreknowing all our deeds, and providing for all our wants.” 
Spurgeon, The Treasury of David

"Our lives are totally encompassed by God. He’s got you surrounded. There are no openings for anything to come through to you that is not a part of the ultimate  purpose and will of God. This is what it means when God says He will keep you form all evil."

"I look back and I see the hand of God on my life. I look ahead and I see God's plan. And right now I feel the hand of God upon me. You see, I'm surrounded. My past, present, and my future is all wrapped up with God. "You've beset me behind and before, and Your hand is upon me."
