Lauren’s Weekly News 24 – 31 May 2017 Sawubona! “I see you!” And welcome, I’m throwing the curtain a tad wider and saying be welcomed in this space. This is my little news column, but feel free to poke around at the very many things on my website. I have a separate blog, a podcast show and also my portfolio full of weekly writings. This week I am still taking in the after emotions of enjoyment and goodness I experienced at the 1000 Women 1 Voice Gala Event I attended as a writer. The gala event was in aid of women abuse and human trafficking and it was a beautiful affair. This week I will be visiting a Halfway House for female prisoners and I will be covering the creative Market “Kamers.” I’m seeking Father in beautiful ways and He is fulfilling His word “to be found.” He is so good, a week of writing, thinking and experiencing peace. May you be blessed dear friends in whatever you are experiencing today. You are Loved, Chosen and Valued, don’t forget who you truly are.

Yehudit, Chosen by God-By Lauren Jacobs

As a daughter of Israel, Yehudit has always loved and trusted in Yahweh, the God of her people. But personal tragedy and the threat of a mighty enemy pose challenges to her faith. 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.)
