Would you consider yourself a faith wanderer?
Do you wonder what the difference is between being a wanderer and lost?
Maybe it’s not a worry for yourself, but there are loved ones that come to mind as you are concerned for their salvation and relationship with God.
On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, we get real about what it feels like to question your faith and wonder if you’re lost. Robin Dance, author of For All Who Wander: Why Knowing God Is Better than Knowing It All, brings authenticity and wisdom so deep you’ll not be able to listen without losing track of what you thought you’d be getting done. This episode just might be one of the rawest conversations you’ll hear . . . as emotions rose to the surface that caught me by surprise and led me to fresh hope for wandering, in faith, on this journey to eternity.
Robin is a sister-in-Christ and a wanderer as well as writer, speaker, and contributor to the (in)courage community and The Art of Simple. She and her husband, Tad, are enjoying newfound freedom as empt-nesters, but they keep their fingers crossed and the back door open for their three adult children. As Southern as sugar-shocked tea, she currently lives in Macon, Georgia, and online at robindance.me.

Take heart, you are an effective and powerful servant of the Lord.
Speak life, hope, and salvation.
Your works are steeped in favor and blessing.
He is the light on the path you travel and He directs the every step you take, even this one, for His glory.
When you are weary, do not let this cloud your confidence.
You favored to increase territory, to invite heaven to earth, and spread the glory of our King.
You are victorious in your work, to your family, to your outreach.
You are beloved.
You renounce the enemy. He has no power or authority over you.
He was and is defeated.A Prayer from Bonnie Wallace
Bloom where you’re planted. – Robin
You can’t have if you don’t ask. – Lisa
Go first in your vulnerability to cultivate the connection you crave. – Lisa
Tears are the window washers of the soul. – Robin’s Grandpa
God wastes nothing.
He doesn’t waste your wandering. – Lisa
