Lauren’s Bi-Weekly News 10 October – 24 October 2018 Hey Friends, I’m sitting down to take a rest this morning, so I may draw in the silence and find the words coming to me and through me. Lately, there’s been a lot. God is always speaking, and the more I’ve taken the journey towards being obedient and following that Beautiful Voice, the more I’m seeing. At the moment, it’s been my Ted Talk journey, and the learning has come through my personal moments of reflection on what my “idea,” really means to me and what change I’m hoping to make. My speaker coach when he first heard my idea, he told me “this is going to start a movement, that’s our aim here. In 3 years time we want to look back and see that you changed something.” Perhaps this joy of working with individuals who believe in you and who want to hear your voice, has been part of the overwhelming goodness of it. I, like many women, have always struggled to feel heard. Maybe I have been heard, I am sure I have, but to feel heard is something entirely different. The culture of silence that so en-wraps our stories, is perverse and sickening, like a hand around a throat stifling breath. No more! I want to say “I’ve been heard, fully heard.” Not understood or accepted, but heard. With that in the mind, the preparation continues, every 2nd week its workshops and weekly visits with coaches. Scripts, pitches and talks, and of course getting to know new people! Oh, listen in every Tuesday at 13:15pm to Radio Pulpit I have my own series on women in the faith halls and on the margins! Lessons we can and should learn from their lives. I wrote a pretty cool travel – love piece over at Odd Magazine this month, about finding love in an unexpected place, its over on my story page. I’m also recording some new short film devotionals for our ministry and enjoying the new journey with my book “Shelamzion.” This book is really about restoring a powerful female ruler back to her place in history and in to our present consciousness. A number of people have asked me how to get a copy, so do pop me a mail through the contact form and we can chat! Sometimes, I even hand – deliver (that’s even better than buying a copy at the bookstore, which you can also do!)  Until next time, Much Love Lauren x

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?
