Latest News
Lauren’s Bi-weekly News 10 – 24 MayFriends, nice to welcome you in. I have so much cool news and am excited as I share some cool things with you. Firstly, today I attended an amazing event called the 1000 Women 1 Voice event, look for the write up soon! The event happens annually and is a gathering of 1000 women in one place, saying no to women abuse and saying “me alone, I am enough!” The event was particularly inspiring this year, with amazing snippets, visuals and great speakers. We heard the message, felt it’s weight and together I truly believe we can say no more. As much as what we commit to this cause, there’s still so much work to be done, I’m praying that women (and men) everywhere will rise up and say no more. Next week, hubby and I will be leading a camp for the week of Shavuot (Pentecost), at an awesome Game Lodge, we looking so forward to seeing what God is going to do in our lives and in the lives of those who come. And then….. the news I’ve been waiting for, for over 3 years… I just signed a book contract for my next book (crowd cheers!). What a crazy journey but I’m so excited to be sharing this “her-story,” with you all. It’s historical fiction, a true story of the very first queen of Israel, legit Ancient Israel had a queen and she was amazing. I’ll be sharing loads more and book invites and lots of goodies in my newsletter so please sign up at the bottom of my page. (I don’t spam I promise!) So here’s to glorifying God and knowing He is working all things out for our good. May you experience His Love and Joy this week dear friend and may your silent season be over, may this become a season of great proclaimation and extensive goodness. Until next time…. 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.
