About Becky

Becky grew up on a working farm in Illinois. As a young girl, she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. She developed a strong work ethic at an early age, becoming an entrepreneur in fourth grade with a single Black Angus calf, and ending up with a small herd of 20. While still in high school, Becky starting her own cleaning business; while in college, she ran a catering business for a short period of time. After graduation, the Lord opened the door for Becky to work in various executive/administrative positions with some of the largest health care companies in the world.

In 1992 Becky married George Spragins and shifted from a career in business to that of a full-time wife. George's success in business allowed her to devote her spare time and energy to the things she enjoyed most - ministry, music, cooking, interior design, and gardening. However, that came to an abrupt halt in 2005. George was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in July and went home to be with the Lord in August. Becky re-dedicated her life to the Lord, praying, "You are now my husband - I am yours." (Isaiah 54:5).

One morning shortly after her husband's passing, a quotation from her study Bible jumped out at her: "When the Lord takes one partner to be with Him in the heavenly home, He restores the one left on earth and gives to the one remaining a new assignment to ministry and a fresh opportunity for spiritual growth" (Dorothy Kelly Patterson). That's all it took - in less than five months the Lord moved Becky to Greenville, SC to be close to her aging parents and assist with their care.

Becky's life has taken a completely different path than she anticipated when first moving to Greenville. She purchased a lovely home - although some considered it the ugly duckling of the neighborhood - which was a perfect blank canvas waiting for her to exercise her passion for interior design. A three-and-a-half year top to bottom renovation resulted in a "swan" that has been lovingly christened Spragins Woods Mission Manor. The name reflects Becky's passion for missions. In 2012 more than 500 guests visited her home and many stayed in guest rooms on the second floor, which was designed for that purpose. She frequently hosts events and outings for college students attending nearby Bob Jones University, many of whom are from missionary families. They keep her young!

Becky's companion and bodyguard is a Lab/Boxer mix named Samson. He loves meeting all her guests and enjoys the added attention. He especially loves to sample the international foods many of the college students prepare.

Recycled Blessings is a ministry Becky founded in 1998. The team ministers to single men and women, and single parents with children by using their design talents to give these folks' places of residence a new look and create comfortable surroundings for them to enjoy. In return, they are asked to share the blessing in the future.

In 2005 Becky contacted Bob Jones University about honoring George’s memory. Two years later they were able to move forward with the Science & Engineering Endowment; March 2010 marked the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Cancer Research Lab. Perhaps one day these Christian science students will find a cure for cancer.

In 2006 the entrepreneurial bug hit Becky again and she purchased Genesis Marketing Group - a company that sells inspirational gifts and books. In 2008 she purchased Precept Marketing Group, based in Elverson, PA. She is blessed to have great teams working for her so she is free to devote time to other ministries across the United States and also visit missionaries' homes both here and abroad.

In her own words, "The Lord has provided and we need to be good stewards of what He has entrusted to us. It all belongs to Him."

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." (Philippians 4:13)
