For All Who Wander

Author:

Book Synopsis

“Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24) Her circumstances might not have been as dramatic as the father begging Jesus for a miracle, but Robin felt just as desperate in her faith. Feeling lost in a spiritual desert, this was the most honest prayer she could offer. Can you relate to struggling in your faith but longing to believe? 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. Inviting you to find hope and healing in your own story within the pages of hers, in For All Who Wander, Robin Dance will help you:
  • Abandon the guilt and shame attached to your questions or doubts.
  • Broaden your understanding of God’s grace and faithfulness.
  • Release hostage-holding lies to enable you to embrace your identity, hope, and value in Christ.
  • Reframe your view of difficulties and disappointments as you understand their redemptive and transformative value.
  • Trust that God is working in your wandering to restore and strengthen your faith.
As you walk through Robin’s story with her, you’ll find out for yourself that sometimes wandering is the path that leads you back to God.

In Review

At some point in our journey through life, we can all feel like we are wandering a bit in the desert. Sometimes a specific circumstance takes us down a wandering path and other times it’s simply because we realize surface level isn’t cutting it anymore. Whatever path you find yourself on in the wandering, For All Who Wander will make you feel as though you aren’t alone on the journey.

Robin Dance is a contributor for the (in)courage community. With For All Who Wander, she has written a memoir of sorts – although I don’t think it is labeled as such. Through the pages you will take a look at her story and how wandering led her back to God. She includes many scripture passages and references – which was a great resource. There is also a Journey Guide (separate study guide) that is an excellent companion to the main book. If you read the book alone, it is more about her story. But if you get the Journey Guide to go along with it, you will be able to apply it to your own life with practical tools to reflect, resolve and respond.

You can find the Journey Guide here.
