Lauren’s Monthly Update – June 2021 Will the weather in Cape Town please make up its mind! Now that I got that out the way, it’s the 6th month of the year and I’m packing boxes. Boxes piled with years worth of collecting stuff to relocate. Excited, nervous and grateful. When I was still a Psychology student, I remember learning how moving house was on the top 5 most stressful things to do – list. But all in all it’s not bad, it’s always a fresh start. Speaking of start, I hope you have got to starting new things this year, starting on fresh vision, a fresh goal or dream. Over the past few weeks I have been blessed to interview some amazing people on my radio show – tune in on Thursdays at 5pm to Radio Cape Pulpit 729AM to hear! I was also interviewed on the Noggin Notes Africa podcast, focusing on faith communities and abuse. The WomXn Show on Cape Town TV invited me to speak on faith leaders and how to handle abuse, I hope you managed to catch it. I got the great news that my children’s book Bold Bible Girls was shortlisted for the Andrew – Murray Desmond Tutu Award 2021, which is a real great surprise as a children’s book hardly ever gets nominated for this award. So, it’s been a good few weeks. I hope you are well friend and don’t forget to order a copy of the new Yehudit, second edition – it just released 2 months ago! You can use the contact form to place your order. Keep 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.

New Illustrated Children's Book -By Lauren Jacobs

The architect, the builders and challengers. The persecuted, the traveller, the prophetess and myrrh carrier. The apostle, the visionaries, the activist and the deliverers. Meet them all in the pages of Bold Bible Girls, where Lauren takes you on a journey in to the lives of overlooked Bible girls. With a vision to inspire young girls to see themselves as competent and strong, this book is a blessed gift for the young visionary. Accompanied by a devotional section, this book aims to bring mothers and daughters together, to reflect on the examples and themes in the lives of these Bible girls. This illustrated children's book brings to life the lesser known girls of the Bible, through biblical accuracy and storytelling.
