Lauren’s Bi-Weekly News 21 August – 4 September I hope you all been keeping warm in this icy Cape Town weather! This month, I’ve enjoyed readying myself and my world for the release of my book Shelamzion Queen of Israel. Very soon I will have a page up just focused on the book, and more information on this very special prophetic story. If you are in Cape Town please consider sharing my celebration day with me on Sunday 16th September. There will be food, refreshments, sacred conversation and deep spiritual things. I’m sure there will be music! And laughter (probably tears too!) Tune in to Radio CCFM on the 29th of August at 2:30pm where I will be talking with Esther Kruger about Shelamzion, this mighty queen of Israel who ruled 1st century B.C Israel. This month I had a blessed time at Radio Disa on women’s day, where radio presenter Natasha Fick and I had a fire – filled conversation about our journeys, female leadership and God’s word to women in this generation. Women’s Day in South Africa (9th of August), is incredibly special as it commemorates the women who marched as an army, some 20 000 strong in opposition to the oppression of the government. It reminds me forever and always, how a powerful army  of women can impact change. This is what God says in His word in Psalm 68 verse 11 – that a great army of women will proclaim His word in a chosen time frame on earth. This is the time frame, we are the chosen, will we march out with this truth to change the world? I hope we will! Pray for me as I prepare to share this written gift with the world, and my prayer is that it will impact your life too as you read the words on the pages. My series on Proverbs 31 is still airing every Tuesday at 13:15 on Cape Radio Pulpit until the end of August. Hope you catch it! Until next time, be blessed! Lauren xx

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.
