Lauren’s Weekly News 14 – 22 JanuaryHappy 2018 everyone! That’s right 2018 and already many are back in the work mode and the holidays seem like a memory right. Here’s trusting that this year you will be involved with your passion, living out a dream sweating it out with the hard work it takes to see that dream come to fruition, and don’t give up! It’s a great time to be alive. In the wake of #metoo and #churchtoo, the world and the Church are fast realising that needs to be a change, whether that change is wanted or not. As women, we have endured so many hardships and so many pains. Our stories are real, and our stories are meaningful and they are needed. I sometimes struggle with the discouragement of thinking am I doing enough in this world. Especially in terms of helping others. I used to be a counsellor, now I write to create awareness and I’m on to different things for the body, so being away from the therapy room makes me wonder. But God reminds me that I am required only to be faithful with my call, with my commission and my position. We each have a role to play in this body and I am praying for this body, that it will rise up and be a force. I am praying we will fulfill our roles and burn with passion. Speaking of passion, have you chosen your one word for the year yet? Each year I wait and receive one word that is the at the very heart of the year, mine’s got something to do with passion, but that’s all I’m going to tell you! Thank you for stopping by I hope you will read some more, connect with me, I’m really friendly I promise. Or get in touch, life is better when we say hi! Until next time, Shalom Shalom!

God is with her and will use her in her weakness to deliver an entire nation from evil. Accompany Yehudit on her journey from being a young girl defeated by tragedy to becoming a mighty warrior.
