214 – Glimpses of Glory – Jennifer Hunter Jones
“Artists are the life-givers in culture. We are a pivotal intersection point where the Kingdom of Heaven meets culture. It is there that we have the unique opportunity, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to translate the Kingdom of Heaven into a language that bypasses words and goes directly into the human spirit. When we collaborate with the Holy Spirit in this dance of Kingdom creativity, His power, His Life and His Light merge with our faith, creative thoughts, imaginations, desires and skill into art that carries the literal presence and power of God. It is in this context that our art, no matter the creative medium becomes prophetic.” Quote from Matt Tommey
Spiritual impressionist: JENNIFER HUNTER JONES
She is a native “Abilenenian”. She has lived here all of her life and married her high school sweetheart, BRAND JONES in 1981. They have an incredible family that is growing in numbers and they LOVE it!
She attended Hardin Simmons University and majored in Art with a concentration in stone sculpture. She is a lover of the one who created the heavens and the earth, her God who wove her together in her mother’s womb. She is a wife, mother, grandmother, an artist who longs to live a life that is in awe of God, His mysteries and the beauty of His son Jesus! She has always been one who is very visual. When she hears a story she sees it. When she reads a book she’s there. When she prays for someone she often sees pictures for that person. When she takes hold of Gods word, images begin to form in her mind. Her work reflects those visions and glimpses of God’s vast emotions.
Artists have a unique way of seeing past the surface of their subjects to bring their viewers into new realms. Every artist finds inspiration from a variety of places. Jennifer captures the atmosphere of heaven on each canvas! In her paintings the shell of hardened culture cracks and to reveal glimpses of glory from Gods heart.
