Lauren’s Monthly Update – July 2020 Greetings and Blessings! I hope you are your family are staying well and safe during this continual adapting time. During this time, it has been hard to work things out mentally and emotionally and while there are good moments, I do know there are challenging ones as well, so I pray you are well. From my side, the radio show has continued to be a great blessing to many in this time and I have spoken in to the area of domestic violence, gendercide in India, maternal mental health during Covid and in July itself, I will be turning towards conservation, sexism, surviving genocide and more! Don’t forget to tune in on Thursdays to 729AM. During this time,  I have tried to adopt a slower pace of listening and working intuitively. When I’m working on things my heart is leading me to work on, I truly feel fulfilled, instead of trying just to meet deadlines. This has been a blessing in disguise, as external workload pressure has eased because of Covid. What has been a source of encouragement to me, is how many of my friends have experienced blessings in their work environments, and this encourages me! As the saying goes, “when your girls are winning, you are winning!” We win together! Having said that, we are having to fight together! The scourge of domestic violence is ravaging South Africa, and we have to fight hard together against what we see happening. I continue to do this together with others, and we will continue the course. This month I have some exciting news coming out, and there’s a way for you to get involved as well, I will be revealing all in my upcoming newsletter so please subscribe. Until next time, be blessed! 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.
