Lauren’s Monthly Update: July 2022 Hello everyone! July. What am I up to! A lot has been happening my side! Two months ago I was elected chairperson of the Friends of the Cape Town Museum and have been so blessed to start serving in that role alongside a powerful team of board members who are truly committed to the vision  of the soon to be launched Cape Town Museum. The new museum will feature the stories of the community of Cape Town and there will be such wonderful opportunities for you to share your family’s experiences and stories of this city. Through the month of June I was been creating, researching, and writing a full month long women’s history exhibition that will open in August at the Cape Town Museum Walk – In Centre, I am so excited about this! And will share all the details on social media and in my July newsletter. On Thursday 8 July I will be interviewed on CCFM at 10am with Natasha Khumalo. On July 16th I will be MC’ing an important event for Nelson Mandela Day, a fundraiser for the Rea Thusana Foundation, who work with homeless women and children in Muizenburg. Don’t forget to tune in every Thursday at 5pm for my radio show, Voice of Change, there are some powerful interviews coming up this month, including one of our Miss South Africa Finalists. 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.
