Lauren’s Monthly Update  11 July – 30 July 2019 Hi all! Good to see you here! I just returned from a great holiday away and feeling totally refreshed and revived as opposed to how I was feeling before we left, like an over boiled potato. It’s amazing what rest and change of scenery does to the soul. Thanks for stopping on by. I am totally loving the journey of being a radio host for my very own show Voice of Change. Did you know July is plastic – free awareness month, and on the 17th is the international day for Social Justice? Social justice is something we need to be getting involved in within our generation, everything from climate change to woman abuse, conservation, animal cruelty and more – the earth and the world in general, needs our voices and our actions. That is what my show is all about, realities we do not talk about within our faith communities, so let’s get talking, tune in to 729AM 6pm every Thursday South African time. This month, I’m excited for a big menstrual pad distribution day, a collaboration we are doing for the homeless ladies in Muizenburg on July 26 – pray for us please! And then I’m preaching at a Women’s Conference on August 3rd, right before women’s day, super excited. This Friday 12th July I’m being interviewed on the Leefstyl show with Guilma Stander at 13:15 on Radio Pulpit. We talking about my book Shelamzion and the Next Generation award it just won. After that, you can tune in every Friday at 13:15, to enjoy a short weekly reading of my book. I’ll be reading my book out every week so you can enjoy the story along with me. This Sunday, I’m at a branding photo shoot and I’m busy collabing and writing some new goodies. Exciting and fun, until next time, drop me a line via the contact page if you want to grab a copy of my book or you want to say hi. 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?
