Lauren’s Bi-Weekly News 29 November – 14 December 2018 I’ve been yearning to get on to my website and update the news, send out a newsletter and interact with you all. Yet, time has casually slipped away, but excitedly I am here with you all tonight! TedxCapeTown was an amazing experience, I think it’ll be weeks of processing to take in the beauty of the event and the peace and love I felt. The video will be out in January and yes, it’ll be out there for everyone to watch. My heartfelt, daily prayer is that something I said, could inspire change in someone else’s life. I met some wonderful ladies at the Ted event, who came and spoke to me afterwards and just through their words of conviction and reflection, I am convinced that there is hope for this world. Last week my husband and I were away leading a 4 day retreat camp, and just before that I got to share the studio with the wonderful Sonia Booth over at Cliff Central Radio in Joburg. We spoke about so many things, and I’ll be sure to share the podcast when it’s out soon. It was a meaty conversation, and it was really needed. This week I hope to have a peaceful weekend, and then I am back in studio at Radio Pulpit to record December and January’s short teachings on “women in the Bible.” These air on Tuesdays at 13:15 on the lifestyle show on Cape Radio Pulpit. You can still grab a copy of my new book Shelamzion, by emailing me on the Contact Form, many people are grabbing copies and the feedback has been amazing. Heart Full. Until next time, I’m glad you are here, check you later…. Lauren <3  

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?
