Lauren’s Monthly Update  8 December – 31 December 2019 Hi all! You made it, it’s December and if you are feeling the way I am right now,  then don’t worry time off and time out is almost here. People always ask if I go away over December and the answer is quite clear, no I don’t but I do try and relax and feed my soul to enter to the New Year. Over the past few weeks since I last did an update, I’ve been hard at work with my show Voice of Change on Radio Cape Pulpit. I have interviewed some amazing people and been touched over and over again. At present, I’m recording some beautiful programs for the up coming weeks when I will be travelling for speaking engagements early 2020. Last week I was blessed to be a guest speaker at the 1001 South African Stories monthly talk at the Book Lounge in Cape Town. I shared  bits of my story, and I will share the podcast of this talk when it comes out soon (so sign up to the mailing list!). I’m working with an illustrator on a new project which has been time consuming but rewarding, I can’t share too much now but more will be released in the months to come. So I’d like to wrap up this year with well wishes for you and your loved ones. May this December really be a time of goodness and joy. See you in 2020! Much Love 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.

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.
