If you’ve grown up in the church or identified as a Christian for any length of time, perhaps there’s a chance you’ve experienced a spiritual desert or wrestled with doubts or questions. Maybe right now, you (or someone close to you) are struggling in faith and life but longing to believe, especially if what was once so sure is no longer certain.
We hear you, sister, and we’re with you. You aren’t alone.
That’s why we are SO excited to spill some major beans. Drumroll, please . . . our friend Robin Dance has written the next (in)courage book, and it’s about this very topic! Her book is called For All Who Wander: Why Knowing God is Better Than Knowing it All, and it has a powerful and hopeful message for anyone who has struggled spiritually.
Faith is tidy and neat for some, never unwavering and always so sure. And maybe that’s how you used to feel, but now your once-sure beliefs are less certain, the prescribed faith of your youth no longer enough. Perhaps life isn’t turning out like you thought it would. Heartbreak and challenges stir doubt. Sunday school answers fall short. God seems distant.
If what you know in your head isn’t aligning with the unvarnished truth of your heart, this is the book for you. And since it’s not even released yet, we have a brand new five-day email series to help you begin.
Featuring excerpts from the new book, For All Who Wander, these notes from Robin will cover:
Day 1: Abandoning the guilt and shame attached to your questions or doubts and considering the factors that have led to your season of wandering.
Day 2: Reframing your view of difficulties and disappointments as you understand their redemptive and transformative value.
Day 3: Grasping a broader understanding of God’s unrelenting faithfulness.
Day 4: Recognizing and operating out of your true identity, in light of who Christ is.
Day 5: Discovering how God is actually working in your wandering to restore and strengthen your faith.
All that just in time for a new year and decade, resolutions and reflection!

“Knowing God is better than knowing it all” – Hmm, I couldn’t agree more! Thank you for this reminder!

I’m on the launch team for Robin’s new book. Robin’s writing is from a “me too, been there” tone and perspective. Sometimes we know we’re lost, and other times, it’s a slow derailing and we don’t even realize we’re lost until it’s too late. Loving what I’ve been reading so far. Her book dispells myths like it’s possible to wander too far, and once saved, you can still lose your salvation. It’s hearty reassurance for anyone who has ever felt removed or far from God. Robin is the real deal and I heartily recommend pre-ordering a copy!
I’m in! Love the subtitle- Why knowing God is better than knowing it all.
Satan will break your heart …
Maybe the ‘why did it all end up in such a mess when I thought I was doing what God wanted’ can be turned into a new season with a bridge after all … thanks for the glimmer of hope. xx

Congratulations to Robin on her first book! I’m so excited for her. This is going to be a great book to read.
I love that Robin Dance’s new book, For All Who Wander, helps those who read it to discover that sometimes wandering is the path that leads you back to God. Sometimes we just need to re-frame our view of the difficulties and disappointments we encounter.
Such a timely find. Going to preorder now!
Camilla Hubbard says
I would love to subscribe, and to pre-order the book “For All who Wander” but as I live in Australia and do not do any banking on line, I only ever pay through PayPal, so I am very cautious about ordering anything on line.
(I am 80 years old, with limited computer knowledge.) Can you olease advise if there is a cost involved, and if so, if PayPal is acceptable.

For years I was a “pew sitter”. I went to church each & every Sunday, sang in youth choir, did hand bells & youth group. Wore a cross around my neck & proclaimed to be a Christian. Problem was my life didn’t reflect it. I had no idea about a relationship with Jesus. It was all “superficial” if you will. Fast forward many years, & add a change in denominations you will notice a much different person. Through trials & testing my faith has grown immensely. I recognize what it means to be a Christian & also see how easy it is to wander from your faith. Society has many distractions to lure us away from God. Even some TV preachers can sway us. Praise God He is always wooing us back to Him in His way & Time. What I’ve read so far is great. can’t wait to dive into this & maybe get a copy for a friend.
I’m in a period of transition and it seems my next calling has me walking farther out in my faith. My words this year are Bloom and Gather, I hope this leads me where I need to be.
