Lauren’s Monthly Update – August 2021 Shalom – greetings of peace and joy to you! It’s good to see you here. While we still battle to understand, comprehend and sort through the change of life that has swept our globe, I hope you are well. My husband and I recovered from Covid at the beginning of August, and we are incredibly grateful that we were held so deeply through this terrible illness. Many of you have lost loved ones or are concerned for their loved ones and my thoughts and prayers are with you today. Not forgetting that August is women’s month, I have some cool engagements planned, I am a guest speaker at The Table 2021, a phenomenal conference about female leadership, airing live on YouTube on 9th August. If you miss the live stream, you can search for The Table 2021 on YouTube and you will be able to watch all the video’s – the talks and panel discussions, you don’t want to miss it! On the evening of August 9th, I will be live on Radio Cape Pulpit at 8pm with the 180 Degrees Girls, giving out a message for Women’s Day. On the 18th of August, I am moderating an all important discussion on The Economic Development of Women with the ACDP Women of Destiny Western Cape. You can tune in live to the conversation on their Facebook page. I have some private speaking events lined up, and I am really excited to be celebrating women’s month with so many incredible people all over South Africa. Oh, and I came 4th out of 97 finalists for the Gender Awards in the Western Cape, the top 5 get an official award, so I am very blessed and excited about that! I am also a finalist for the Michael Brown Change Award in the U.K. which honours agents of change around the world, working towards a better world for women. My heart is filled with gratitude! Don’t forget to pop me an email if you would like to order a copy of Yehudit or Bold Bible Girls, I would love for you to get one! Until next time, stay safe and many blessings! 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 Illustrated Children's Book -By Lauren Jacobs

The architect, the builders and challengers. The persecuted, the traveller, the prophetess and myrrh carrier. The apostle, the visionaries, the activist and the deliverers. Meet them all in the pages of Bold Bible Girls, where Lauren takes you on a journey in to the lives of overlooked Bible girls. With a vision to inspire young girls to see themselves as competent and strong, this book is a blessed gift for the young visionary. Accompanied by a devotional section, this book aims to bring mothers and daughters together, to reflect on the examples and themes in the lives of these Bible girls. This illustrated children's book brings to life the lesser known girls of the Bible, through biblical accuracy and storytelling.
