Lauren’s Bi-Weekly News 10 January – 24 January 2019 Happy 2019! We are here, we have arrived! I hope you all had a great break and (hopefully) some time to rest. My husband and I took some time to rest and rejuvenate in the midst of the silly season. I cannot help but feel the importance of taking that break out and just resting before life picks up again in the new year. So whatever the new year has in store for you, may it be blessed! I’m excited to share that the African Gender and Theology Journal has done a review of my new book Shelamzion, I will be sharing the link to the Open Space in my newsletter and on the stories page. Hopefully the newsletter will be out before the end of next week. I’m still teaching an awesome women in the Bible series on Cape Radio Pulpit every second Tuesday at 13:15 and I’ve been asked about my Ted talk… it’s still not out live yet, but once it’s out I will be sharing that link. For now, I’m really happy to be dipping my pen (or keyboard for that matter) in to some new stories. I have missed article and journal writing and hope to make that a priority as new truths and personal stories flow from my heart. Grab a copy of my book Shelamzion, people are still loving it! Thanks for being with me here today, I appreciate you, until next time Many Blessings! 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.

New Historical Fiction Book -By Lauren Jacobs

Shelamzion dreams of living for a cause. As a Maccabean descendant, her family had defeated the Greeks occupying Judea and had restored the nations independence. But her uncle the king rules with greed and selfish ambition, isolating her family from the people. An arranged marriage to her cousin shatters her dreams of purpose and her longing to marry Yaakov her tutor. Shelamzion watches her husband the newly crowned king, continue his fathers reign of tyranny. Lines are drawn, civil war spills blood on to Jerusalem’s street and Shelamzion is faced with personal loss and the desire to rise up and protect her people. But Yahweh has never chosen a queen to rule over Israel before, so will he do it this time?
