“Hemmed In” is a term very dear to my soul, one that deeply resonates with me. The Psalmist writes about His God, “You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.” If you read the entire Psalm (139), you will read about a person who is confident they are known by God and is at ease with the boundaries God has placed around Him.

God has always hemmed me in, but I am not always as comfortable, nearly as confident or happy as the psalmist writes. But He has His hand on me and I stand on the truth of what the Scriptures say about who God says He is and who He he says I am ~ fearfully and wonderfully made!

Currently, I serve as the Women’s Ministry Director at King’s Harbor Church. It is a privilege to work alongside some amazing women as we seek God together and work cooperatively with Him to advance His Kingdom. Our mission is to cultivate a community of discipleship where women can grow and ultimately use the unique ways God has gifted them to bring glory to His name. From time to time, I teach Bible Studies. This is an area where I hope God will continue to use me in and bless others. If you would like to listen to any of our past studies, they are provided below.

I am thankful to be hemmed in at home with my husband and would give my life for my four boys who challenge me, stretch me and bring me joy every day. I love the Church that belongs to Jesus and am committed to seeing the world transformed through her. My passion for God’s people is discipleship and growing in the truth of who God is and who we are because of Him.

  1. Hi Suzie,
    I just saw your tweet to me. Thanks for being willing to contact Nestle. I am looking for companies willing to donate infant formula (milk or soy based) to a couple different organizations in Haiti (Heartline Ministries and Real Hope for Haiti). Heartline Ministries (www.heartlinehaiti.org) runs a prenatal program, midwife birthing program, and post-natal child development program. Most of the moms in these programs breastfeed, but there are a few mothers who are unable to breastfeed for various reasons. These moms are given a supply of formula weekly. In addition to running a clinic that sees up to 1000 patients per week (and an inpatient unit that is currently treating cholera patients), Real Hope for Haiti runs an infant rescue center for severely malnourished infants and toddlers. A large percentage of the children in the rescue center are on formula, so they are always in need of formula donations.
    Thanks so much for your help. I can be reached at halv0105 AT umn DOT edu.
