Lauren’s Monthly Update  February 2019 Hi all! Blessings and Greetings for February! The hottest month of the year, are you surviving? This month has been one of great busyness, but goodness. I’ve enjoyed the connection of friends both near and far and have spent time reconnecting with friends who mean the world to me. The radio show is going well and February has been one of the most lit months for the radio as I’ve covered passion topics that need to be spoken about. From sustainable fashion, to child brides, conservation and “are all men trash,?” this month has seen the conversation getting real. This month “Die Liefdesboek” by Christine Ferreira was released and in it, I share a part of my testimony about living with anxiety. I have not got my copy yet, but looking forward to grabbing one soon. In podcast news, I was a guest on the Creativ and Kin podcast which released this passed Sunday, in it I discuss my journey as a writer and how you too can put pen to paper and get writing. I give all sorts of tips and tricks and discuss the challenges.  Here’s the link for a listen  – https://podcasts.apple.com/za/podcast/the-creativ-kin-podcast/id1488519625 Until next month, be good, be blessed and please sign up for my newsletter I love sharing with you all the happenings. 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.
