Lauren’s Bi-Weekly News 11 – 24 June 2019 Hi! Welcome and yay! It’s nice to see you here. This is my little space where I get to update you  on things happening my side. In book news, I am super excited to share that my latest release Shelamzion, Queen of Israel just won the New Generation Indie Book Award in the Christian Fiction category. New Gen are the equivalent to the Sundance Film awards and I am so blessed to be a recipient of this award. God check the book out on the Shelamzion Tab above. The radio show has been going so well. I am blown away by the amazing collaborations, and connections being formed through the guests stories and listeners. More on this in my up coming newsletter (sign up!). At the end of June, I’m at a Girls Dignity Day for young girls who learn to surf! And I am really looking forward to some annual leave from the end of June. I hope to get a newsletter out when I get back to share so many things with you all and the events I will be speaking at in August, as it’s proudly women’s month here in South Africa. See you then! 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 Historical Fiction Book -By Lauren Jacobs

Shelamzion dreams of living for a cause. As a Maccabean descendant, her family had defeated the Greeks occupying Judea and had restored the nations independence. But her uncle the king rules with greed and selfish ambition, isolating her family from the people. An arranged marriage to her cousin shatters her dreams of purpose and her longing to marry Yaakov her tutor. Shelamzion watches her husband the newly crowned king, continue his fathers reign of tyranny. Lines are drawn, civil war spills blood on to Jerusalem’s street and Shelamzion is faced with personal loss and the desire to rise up and protect her people. But Yahweh has never chosen a queen to rule over Israel before, so will he do it this time?
