Lauren’s Monthly Update – October 2020 Greetings and Blessings Great to see you here! Welcome and take a seat. This is my quick update space for those who aren’t subscribers (yet!) and do not receive blog posts or newsletters. This year has taken shape in form in ways unexpected and often hard, yet in the midst of it, there are beautiful moments. August was a busy month with lots of online conferences and talks! And now I’m on to the stretch where my new book will be launching soon (super excited!). From October 10th, it’ll be releasing and if you want to grab a copy please use the contact button up above, or else get down to your local book store and grab or order one from them. I just wrapped up an amazing interview I’ll be sharing with you all soon, all about “Making Research Relatable.” I discuss my GBV and faith research and the deep value of research as a whole. I also will be sharing the link to an amazing podcast show where the hostess and I share our very different stories of embracing faith and feminism, and her story of disregarding faith to find feminism. It’s a very deep time, and I cannot wait to share this with you. I always believe in having dialogue, and conversation on topics that can seem tough. Throughout the month of October I’ll be a guest on different radio shows where I’ll be discussing my new baby, “Bold Bible Girls.” Cannot wait to represent different stories to you, and for our girls to have positive, brave Biblical role models to follow and look up to. Discovering and teaching the stories of bible women for over a decade has been the highlight of my life. Through their stories I have truly learnt about boldness, bravery and strength, and yes – all from the pages of the Bible! Until next time, sign up to the newsletter down below to get all the inside info! 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.

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.
