Lauren’s Weekly News 20 August – 31 August 2017 Shalom and Welcome, I love it that you are visiting. Websites and blogs are special because they carry bits and pieces of the heart all over it, well at least that’s how I feel about mine. Last weekend I was blessed to speak at a wonderful women’s conference and the love and overflow from being in that circle of women, is still tangible to me. I love women’s circles, and love been a guest speaker. I’m so grateful. On that note, I am super excited about the podcast conversations happening this September on my HeartBeat Podcast! The theme and feel of these podcasts are all about capturing stories, stories of creativity, hope, overcoming, bravery and healing. If you want to receive these, sign up to my website on this page below. I hope you find something that will bless your heart today, thanks for visiting and connecting. In Him, Lauren…

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. Along the way, you will discover how the same God who strengthened her can heal your own wounds and shape your destiny. (Also available in Afrikaans.)
