Lauren’s Monthly Update: May – June 2022 Hello everyone! We are mid-way through May, the leaves are turning red and it’s getting cooler, darker, slower. My favourite time of year! In news, this month I was voted on to the Friends of the Cape Town Museum board, the friends organisation exists to further the vision of the museum. Over the next 8 months new exhibitions and new wings of the museum will be opening. I am collaborating on a Women’s Day exhibition with the museum and it is going to be exciting – more details will follow in my newsletter! I am also researching and writing for an exclusive talk at the Swellendam Heritage Association over the next few months. And a praise report – I was incredibly blessed to work with a photographer who was working in Ukraine. We shared the story of some brave, phenomenal students working with refugees fleeing the Russian invasion, and through sharing that story, individuals were mobilised, connections were made and water filters were given to many people who need fresh, clean water in Ukrainian territories. Never ever underestimate the power of what we are each called to do, through these acts lives are indeed touched! More stories will be coming soon! I was also chosen to be a Torch Bearer on the Leadership forum of Changemakers Hub. Honoured. Until next month, may you have a blessed one! 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.
