Lauren’s Bi-Weekly News 28 March – 11 April 2019 Hello Friend, Thank you for being a visitor to my little space in the world. The month of March has passed quickly. In the middle of the month I had an operation and took some good time out to rest and recover which was much needed. But just before that I enjoyed a really busy week, culminating in a wonderful event with Tedx Cape Town and the U.S. consulate in celebration of international womens day. So what am I up to now? Hubby and I are preparing for a great 4 day camp for Passover, where we will be ministering the Word of God and expecting a great time in His presence. I’m also working on the content of my new show, yes I have joined Radio Pulpit as the Monday night 6pm presenter and I am really excited about this. The show begins in May and is focused on social issues and areas of truth we don’t talk much about within faith communities. Lots of meetings and new opportunities in the pipeline, so stay tuned.   Be Blessed! 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.
