Brooke: Anglo-Saxon × Literal meaning: peace × Spiritual connotation: refreshing spirit

A woman who walks with God and as a result is a refreshment to others.

Hello, everyone!  I’m Olivia Brooke, and one of my greatest desires is that my name would truly describe my life.  I started this blog with a vision of refreshing others by sharing what God is teaching me and inspiring others with what God is using to inspire me.  One of the biggest influences of this blog is that knowing Jesus is the answer to everything.  I pray that all that flows through this blog draws you closer to Christ and refreshes you in your own walk with God.  He is worthy, friends!

In case you’re curious, all the photos I use for this blog are ones that I have taken, unless otherwise noted. The current header for my blog was taken by my brother. 🙂

If you ever want or need to contact me, you can do so at arefreshingspirit@gmail.com.

  1. I agree. Same here. My Name – Susan Jane Love

    Susan – meaning “lily” or “rose.” In Song of Solomon (or Song of Songs) chapter 2, verse 1, it reads: “I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.” Metaphorically, this is either speaking of the bride or the bridegroom, i.e. either of the church, the bride of Christ, or of Christ himself.

    Jane –meaning “YAHWEH is gracious.”

    Love – agápē – properly, love which centers in moral preference. So too in secular ancient Greek, 26 (agápē) focuses on preference; likewise the verb form (25 /agapáō) in antiquity meant “to prefer” (TDNT, 7). In the NT, 26 (agápē) typically refers to divine love (= what God prefers). (BibleHub)
