Lauren’s Monthly Update  8 January – 31 January 2019 Hi all! Blessings and Greetings for 2020! I hope you had an amazing holiday season and there was a lot of time for connection, nothingness and refueling for the fresh new year. My holiday season was a great time of doing nothing and since getting back to work this week, I have intentionally been thinking of what makes my heart happy in this new season of life. What I find is that life evolves, we look at ourselves and our growth (hopefully for the better) and we find new zeal for new, different things. I find that in myself this year, and as these are not always things I can just make happen, my trust in God and His heart of kindness is something that steadies my course. SO for January, I kick start my show Voice of Change this Thursday after a 2 week break. I have some wonderful guests lined up this month and am super looking forward to the 1st week in Feb, where I will be joined by 3 guys in studio who will be sharing some tough love for the men. Addressing how men should be championing women, and fighting their own ego’s, fighting domestic violence and so much more. We cannot forget or pretend that our domestic violence fight is over, it isn’t. Far from it. SO I will keep hammering this conversation. I was part of the SA Women Fight Back initiative which had me writing a letter to the nation’s president on behalf of South African women. This is still something that is going to be taking place big time this year, so stay tuned! Next week I’m off to Durbs for a journalism project (super excited), as well as being interviewed on my empowerment work for women. I’m elbow deep in writing a new course on female leadership from the Bible, it’s interactive and personal, reflective and devotional all at once. It’s a busy time! I’ll be sending out a newsletter this month, so stay tuned for that and I cannot wait to connect more with you all this year. Much Love! 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.
