Lauren is a wife to Stefan and a mom to Benjamin. Her other passion lies in seeing those around her live in the fullness of what they were created for. It brings her great joy when she can affirm and equip others in their God-given identity, gifts and talents. She has a background in professional services consulting and worked in this industry for seven years. In 2014 she began pursuing her call for ministry on a full-time basis.
Lenka is created with a hunger for truth and a passion to illustrate. She is curious to explore, discover and reveal creatively. Her illustrations become handles of hope in a journey of faith through the instabilities and uncertainties of life. Her dream is to speak visually, truthfully, originally, with the personal touch of hand. She launched Khanja in 2016, a visual voice that speaks through graphic design and hand-illustration. Khanja means ‘enlightenment/to shine’. Her name, Lenka, means ‘light’.
Lee is a freelance copywriter, editor and content strategist, who loves the mystery of language and the beauty of a well-placed apostrophe. She’s passionate about the power of words – to transform, comfort and nourish, to ascribe value to the neglected. It should come as no surprise that John 1:14 is one of her favourite scriptures.
Elke trained and worked as a graphic designer and when God challenged her to start preparing to adopt a child, one of the things she had to figure out was how to use her skills in a way that would allow her to be at home with her daughter. A bit of research showed that, while there are many beautiful things for adults, there was little in the way of well-designed paper products for children in South Africa, and so she now divides her time between freelance design work and running Bright Owl Paper Goods.
