Episode #13 – Proverbs 31 Woman


In this episode of Thirst No More and Bear Fruit, Julie talks with Sara Spanjers and Jill Weyer, who are both artists and make beautiful crosses, artwork and angel crosses out of discarded materials. These women are creating art that reflect the scripture Proverbs 31:13 and going forward. It states that the woman works with her hands, she is a merchant and is greatly praised. The Proverbs 31 Woman is industrious.

Sara Spanjers of Casita de Arte is from Tucson, Arizona. Her motto is “Recycled Art from the Ground to the Heart.” Sara uses items she finds on the ground, including bottle caps and railroad ties. Many pieces she creates are commissioned by people who have lost a loved one and want to keep their memory alive. She incorporates items from the person into a memorable artwork. Sara welcome to the show.

Jill Weyer is from Durango, CO and owner of a home painting company called Jill of All Trades. In her spare time, Jill creates angels, but they also look like crosses out of items found on construction sites, vacant fields and old mining camps. As she creates the angel, each one is named as she is lead by the Spirit of the Lord.

At the end of the show, Julie shares from her heart about knowing who we are as women. Yes, a woman can be a mother, wife, business owner, our profession (a Proverbs 31 Woman); but that is a talent given to us by God; not how a woman should be identified. As women, we need to be known by our character and more importantly, by the character of God which comes by seeking God’s face, praying and reading the bible.
