Latest News
Lauren’s Monthly Update – February 2021 February! Yes please, January felt like the longest year 🙂 But February, while it is hot (and I dislike Summer!) it’s my hubby’s birthday and it’s a short month, which means more intention and more meaning when it comes to daily work life. As for me, I’m so excited to announce my radio show Voice of Change has been nominated for the Gracie Awards 2021. The first South African radio show ever to be nominated. I’m still over the moon. I also have some exciting book news which I will tell you about in my up coming newsletter (I send out 4 a year – so why not sign up). From next month, I will be back at university in between my work schedule and I am very happy to be returning after graduating 7 years ago. I was accepted in to the postgraduate program in Ancient Near Eastern Studies, a field I have longed to study. I daily read about life in the ancient world so to have a qualification in a passion field, feels worth it. As for the show – I have some exciting topics and guests coming up this month – from child sacrifice, to teenage rebellion, toxic positivity and sisterhood. Tune in on Thursday at 5pm, drive time to Cape Pulpit 729AM, I’d love to have you with me. I truly pray you are having a blessed month and that your cup is overflowing. If this is not your reality, you are not alone, more than ever we need support for our minds, hearts and spirits. Thinking of everyone struggling in this current season and praying blessings for you and your loved ones. Warm virtual hugs! Lauren

What I'm About

Speaking Out

I’m outspoken and passionate about the burdens Yeshua has woven in my heart, and I want to always use my voice for hope, truth and change in this generation. This calling is to “go to where the silence is and say something.”

Gender Justice

What if we lived in a world where women and men co – ruled and co – reigned, it’s a dream that was reality, right there in the beginning. My eyes have seen many things, and my heart has become connected with the calling for gender equality. I’m an egalitarian, that’s who I am!

Writer

The pen is a weapon, it has the power to overcome, to heal, to wage war and reveal truth. It’s a weapon of warfare, and we have to wield it well. At the cornerstone of my purpose is a calling to write, it burns inside of me.
