Lauren’s Bi-Weekly News 9 June – 23 JuneHey y’all! Blessings from a cold Cape Town, and how blessed it is to finally hear the sound of rain and see our dams filling up. Praise God for lots of answered prayer. The 2 day Stellenbosch conference was really great, and I have posted a 3 part series on my Gender Blog that is the written transcript from my talk. I was asked a lot about the talk as the topic was being “childless by choice.” An important one and for those of us who have children, it is important to see how women in particular, have been treated when they decide not to have children. It’ll take you 5 minutes to read, so do enjoy it! News wise, all is well, some new things happening and some wonderful doors opening, nothing I can share too soon. But I have a newsletter coming out soon, so look out for it, if you are signed up for it. Be blessed, and chat soon! Shalom, 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.
