Lauren’s Monthly Update – December 2020 Greetings and Blessings It’s been a wonderful December but also a bittersweet one as friends and family friends have tested positive for Covid. Maybe you’ve experienced the same thing this year, and that’s hard to carry. So here’s some little space for us to hold space together, for those who are bravely fighting and for those we may have lost. May God hear our heart prayers. I know in the midst of the hard things in this year, there has been so many silver linings for me. I entered the year with undealt with trauma which inevitably I had to face. Lock down was a catalyst for change, God took me deeper. I met pieces of myself which finally came surfacing once I started healing from the things I was carrying. I’m stronger, bolder, more whole. I might be a whole inch or two taller now, on the inside that is. I’m grateful for this. Personal growth and healing is one of life’s ultimate gifts and part of that self – actualization we talk about in Psychology.  I’ve also enjoyed a good many radio interviews and podcast interviews – I also have some exciting book news to announce in the new year so please sign up to my newsletter to get the podcast links, and to hear all the latest news. The sign up link is at the bottom of this page. Here’s wishing you a beautiful, blessed new year of intention and miracles. 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.

The architect, the builders and challengers. The persecuted, the traveller, the prophetess and myrrh carrier. The apostle, the visionaries, the activist and the deliverers.

With a vision to inspire young girls to see themselves as competent and strong, this book is a blessed gift for the young visionary.
