  3. Robin,
    Congrats! Today is THE day!! I’ve been blessed to be on Robin’s launch team for this reflective memoir that Robin has penned. I love her humor-infused writing as she tells stories that we ALL can relate to. I, too, grew up in the church and it took a LONG time for my faith to take that “18 inch journey” as Robin calls it – from my head to my heart. I have especially enjoyed the Journey Guide as it has challenged me to take a long look at MY spiritual journey. Sometimes we really need to look back to see the Ebenezer milestones of God’s faithfulness, in all the peaks and valleys, to take us confidently and courageously into the future.
    Blessings and cheering you on, Robin!!

  5. This looks like a book I need in my life right now. I’m definitely in a season of wandering and am trying to find my back. Can’t wait to read this!

  6. This is coming at a time when I need it. Can’t wait to receive the copy I ordered. Thank you.

  7. This is exactly where I am at! You always speak right to my heart. Can’t wait to read this book!

  8. Sounds like a wonderful way to start the New Year! I have had faith struggles recently, and see so much heartbreak around me. I need a renewing of my mind and soul.

  9. Congratulations Robin! I love the description of the book. I do not even remember telling you of my struggles and those of a few close friends, but you have written a book just for me/us! 😉
    All the best to you and to all of us who navigate this beautiful world and hope to not feel alone.

  10. I need this book so much in my life! I’m definitely struggling and need (in)couragment to return from my wandering

  11. This sounds like an awesome book. I would be honored if I were to be chosen as a winner.

  12. This book sounds like the perfect book for those of us who are living life knowing there is more but not quite knowing how to find that fire.

  13. Happy Launch Day!

    This book looks like it will be a great inspiration to many, including me. I am looking forward to reading it one day!

  14. Congratulations! This looks like a book for me. This is a season of wandering and I need God to show me the way home!

  15. I can’t wait to receive my copy. It’s just what I need after my period of doubt and feeling forlorn and forgotten. Thank you for writing this book. I already know I’m blessed by it

  16. Wow! What a great giveaway. I would really put it to good use if I won, I would share with my friends. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to enter. Thanks

  17. I love the subtitle of “Why Knowing God is better than Knowing It All”. I am always happy to read book to help with anxiety and fear. I think everyone fears something in life at some point and could use a reminder that not only is God with us and for us but that He is the reason we should not fear. And also a reminder that God knows all and better than us. Congrats! And it is so nice of you to have a Celebration day giveaway.

  18. Congratulations on the launch of this book! May it reach the hands and hearts of those who find themselves wandering.

  19. Happy launch day, after reading this post I have added it ti my to read list! Hopefully I will win a copy. I feel like I need to take this journey first, but have a few people in mind that need this also.

  20. How exciting!!!! You knew what I needed. It is all a journey as a Christ follower. Knowing other often have a quiet period allow me to exceed on this journey. We are in this together gratefully

  21. God is gracious in His timing of what I need. I’ve been wandering in the desert for several years and I can’t wait to read Robin’s book.

  22. Looking forward to holding a copy of this book! Times are tough but our GOD is real! Happy Launch Day! 🙂

  23. I have a friend who is strong enough in Christ to admit that she feels exactly this way. She keeps persevering and pursuing. She keeps worshipping. But she’s wrestling with the questioning of what it’s all for and if it’s all real. I would love to be able to give this book to her!

  24. Congratulations, Robin! I’m sure this will bless everyone who reads it! Thanks for this opportunity!

  25. As someone who has recently returned from her wandering, this looks to be like an amazing book. The ex pets were amazing.

  26. I’m looking forward to reading For All Who Wander. It’s good to know that when we go through times of doubt, we are not alone.

  27. We all have our wandering times, our feeling like we are in the desert of our faith. The book will validate and inspire us to see that our wandering is shaping us and that God is with us in those wandering. Thank you for sharing your writing to encourage us all

  28. Happy launch day!! I think we all wander at some point in our lives. Thinking this book may be a great one for our Jesus Loving Girls group. Thanks and blessings to you 🙂 Julie

  29. Hello! Since we all tend to wander at some time in our Christian journey, this book will be of great benefit to many people. Thank you for writing it. May God bless you and the people who read it!

  30. I’m looking forward to reading For All Who Wander. This is the perfect book for me to share with my grandson at this time when he has so many doubts. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.

  31. I have enjoyed receiving my daily messages from incourage and would love the chance to win a copy to read and share with others. Thank you for the uplifiting words and daily dose of encouragement!

  32. Congratulations Robin! No matter how much you believe in everyone’s life there comes a time when we question if God even knows we are here. Why would God care about this small speck on the big planet? Does God hear me? Why is this happening? It is a tough valley to walk through. And one that is hard to share with fellow Christians. What would they think of me? Will my wavering faith turn them away from me? Thank you for writing about a subject we all go through but seldom talk about. Would love to bring it to my bible study group.

  33. I thoroughly enjoyed the 5 e-mails and would love to win a copy for a friend. Definitely ordering my own copy today!

  34. So glad this book is being published. Very timely for me in this season, I can’t wait to read it.

  35. Congratulations Robin! I am excitedly waiting on my ordered copy. I have so enjoyed the emails I have been getting and can’t wait to get started reading.

  36. I can definitely relate to the unexpected twists and turns of the journey. It’s great to hear stories of fellow wanderers.

  37. It is thrilling to know readers again can be challenged and changed by Robin’s insights from God’s Word and work in her life. What a gift it is to learn and grow by stories God weaves in a writer’s heart.

  38. What. a wonderful giveaway! Thank you so much for this opportunity to win such an awesome gift!

  39. Happy launch day! I am very excited to read this new book and share it with my bible study group. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this drawing.

  40. The topic of this book speaks so loudly of where I am right now, wandering. I would love to have this book!

  41. “All that wander are not lost,” however if you are wandering without God, you indeed are lost❤️

  42. This sounds like just the book for me. I’ve been struggling with doubt and thinking it was just me. I’d love to read it.

  43. So excited about this book. I am a wanderer and would love to read the book and find my way back. It becomes such a struggle to not know what I should know after all of these years. Thank you for writing the book and journal and giving women hope.

  44. Happy Launch Day! Thank you Robin for sharing this with us! This is going to bless so many.

  45. Congratulations Robin! I am excitedly awaiting my ordered copy. I have really enjoyed the pre-emails and can’t wait to start the book and journal.

  46. Robin chose one of my favorite quotes from the Lord of the rings, “All the is gold does not glitter. All who wander are not lost”. I’d love to read what she does with it in an overly Christian context.

  47. Robin,

    Congratulations on the book launch. I know this book has been on your heart for a long time! I’m just like you. Been in church most of my life. Identified as a Christian because “I go to church”. Didn’t have that 18-inch journey till many years later. It wasn’t till after I married & started going to Blue Springs Christian that Acts 2:38-first gospel message sank in! I’d been sprinkled as a baby. On a Wednesday night I decided to take the plunge. Now I have a true relationship with Christ! Another biggie is we take communion each week. Having a communion meditation then taking of the emblems. Repetition is your best teacher. It sinks in deep just what God did for me!!

    Congratulations Robin 🙂

  48. Happy Launch Day! Congratulations! May you be blessed as your ministry is a blessing to others!

  49. I really enjoyed the 5-day email series that Robin and (in)courage provided. Can’t wait to get my hands on the whole book!

  50. I am excited about getting this book for some of my daughter’s dear friends, who are trying to understand what faith in God looks like when you are “out on your own” in the world. Thank you for sharing this story that God put in you.

  51. Happy Launch Day!!
    I would love to read/win this book! Such rich words that we all can learn and grow from. So happy for you!
    Blessings,
    Melinda S

  52. Congratulations! It sounds like something I need to read and look forward to it. I have had a really rough, but at the same time blessed couple of years which have taken my heart to places I thought I would never go. I pray it will bless many more women than you could ever imagine.

  53. Happy Launch Day! I pray this book goes in the hands of someone who could really benefit from it!

  54. This sounds like an interesting exploration of faith on the edge. I’ve certainly had my own share of doubt through the years and asking why things happen. I hope your book is a huge success, Robin!

  55. I am excited to see this book and I would like to do a reading with my girlfriend who is really struggling at this time. Best wishes for this launch day. Thank you Gina

  56. Happy Launch Day, Robin and all who helped you get to this day! It’s a blessing to know I am not alone on this journey. Praying your words reach those who need them most ♥️

  57. Blest Launch Day, Robin!
    I am Wandering and wondering thru many valleys of life; many created by Autoimmune Illnesses. I sugar coat words, telling all “I am fine.” Fearful of expressing my doubts — where is God in all this — will that make me less-than? Once strong in all, I’m weak. And, rambling. Definitely in need of your book.
    Thank you for writing it.
    Blessing to all.

  58. Thank you Robin for bravely sharing your story and providing encouragement! Your release comes at a pivotal time in my own walk with Our Lord, and I have been hoirified and ashamed that I had such doubts and holes in my faith….. I look forward to reading your story.

  59. This looks like a great encouragement that we can all use at some point in our Christian walk. Thanks for the opportunity!

  60. Robin,
    I love reading yours (and all of the (in)courage writers) posts. They give us hope. In whatever season we are in. I am looking forward to reading and studying your new book. Congratulations on your Launch Day.
    Julie T

  61. I have followed Robin for years and am excited to read more about her journey. Faith is not easy but it is always worth the effort.

  62. This book sounds amazing! I have struggled with my faith the last few years. This book sounds so full of hope!

  63. I’ve been acquainted with the awesomeness that is Robin Dance for years, and I’m SO THRILLED for her!!!! EVERYONE READ THIS BOOK. Because Robin is wise and beautiful and a sincere servant of God.❤️

  64. I love the encouragement that you offer! I’m soooo looking forward to reading and learning more about growing my faith and the journey!

  65. Happy Launch Day! This book looks so encouraging, Id like to go through this with my daughter. Thank you for the opportunity to win a giveaway!

  66. I love the bumper sticker that says “All Who Wander Are Not Lost”. You have stirred a lot of hearts with this new study. Looking forward to new beginnings. God Bless!

  67. Thank you for penning this! Several friends come to mind…perhaps we could form a small group long-distance and journey through this together. God’s blessings in this ministry!

    Suzanne

  68. I enjoy Robin’s devotionals so much & pass them onto many friends that I try to encourage. I was not raised in the church but found Jesus when I was just 16 years old. I married a wonderful man who had just accepted the Lord 6 months before we met & we raised 3 wonderful children in the church. I appreciate the weekly devotionals so much & use them in many creative ways including with my Good News Club teaching the children true lessons of Christian love.
    Congratulations on this new book & Lord bless you all richly for His kingdom!!!

  69. I love the title and the cover picture! I am looking forward to reading this! I hope I win!

  70. I know that I am a WANDERER and I need to follow the one and only correct path. I also know that I cannot do this by myself. There is help available and I will begin my trek back to where I should have been, all the time.

  71. YAY, I love Day Spring give-aways; you are always so generous! I’d love to win one!! I have already pre-ordered the set, but I cold give away this copy to my daughter!! PICK ME!☺️

  72. Would love to read this! Our son recently”left the faith” might give me some insight to help in the processing.

  73. This is right on time for me. I’ve been struggling some in my walk. My son has epilepsy and has been struggling for the last 2 almost 3 yrs with seizures in his sleep. He has anywhere from 50-70 seizures a month. We’re waiting to see if he qualifies for surgery. More than anything right now my faith needs to be strengthen. I pray all the time, “Lord I believe, help my unbelief!” I would love to win this bundle. I need this bundle!! Thank you!

  74. Our oldest grandson lost his battle with depression and took his life three days before Christmas. We are trying so hard not to wander and to cling to Jesus.

  75. This book would be perfect for my daughter. She is struggling with her faith, and she still asks me to pray for her. I am hopeful. Thank you for bringing something for our loved ones who are questioning.

  76. I am so excited to get an opportunity to read this book. I have definitely felt lost lately and searching for answers to no avail. I feel like this book would be a good guide for me. Congratulations on the launch and appreciate being considered for the gift of this package. Blessings to you!

  77. Big congrats on your book. May this book be a blessing to the community of (in) Courage.

    *We are eternally LOVED ~ No matter what we lose or what we gain, Your love remains. It is the reason for who we are and what we do. Keep us in your LOVE, and help us show Your love to those around us. * Prayer from If Equip website to share.

  78. Robin Dance Congratulations on the launch of your first book! I am so elated for you! For All Who Wander: Why Knowing God Is Better than Knowing It All is an excellent book! I have never been one to see myself as a wanderer. However, after reading the book, I could look back and see that certain situations and scenarios in my own life caused me to wander away from God and my relationship with Him. It can be a natural response to look to ourselves for answers rather than going to the One who knows it all. Robin Dance is an authentic voice of wisdom. Through the sharing of her personal stories, you begin to see, reflect and understand that as humans, we don’t know it all and that truly knowing God is better than becoming a wanderer. For All Who Wander has encouraged me to find hope and healing in my own life’s challenges and I am much better off for having read your book. Thank-you for your heartfelt words! They have encouraged me beyond measure!

  79. Congratulations to Robin, I have so enjoyed reading her work for many years. The book will help so many people.

  80. This book sounds like what I need right now! Can’t wait to get the sample to begin reading it. Thanks so much for sharing your heart with ours!!
    ME

  81. Am so excited to read this new book. It is good to really know that I am not the only one that Wanders…

  82. It’s hard to not question God and His love and faithfulness when life seems to fall apart. 2019 has been the hardest year of my life but I can still see the ways in which God was working, despite my painful circumstances. This would be a great book to have!

  83. I love to read all the (in)courage posts and I love my (in)courage Bible. I think that we all have doubts at times. I know I constantly have to read my Bible and other readings to maintain my faith. I have enjoyed reading the sample entries “For All Who Wander” and I congratulate Robin on the release of her book. God Bless you Robin. You are helping others!

  84. I don’t know many authentic Christians who can’t relate to “wandering” at some point in their journey. I’m really trying to get closer to Jesus this year because I struggled (am struggling) with the “why’s?” Of life.

  85. Wow! This looks like such a great and timely read! Putting this to the top of my “to read” list! Good luck on the launch! Praying for a great start!

  86. Happy Launch Day! This book sounds like a good way to get back to being the self you”re meant to be rather than the “public face” frequently shown. Best wishes.

  87. I have wanted to read this since I first heard about it through your emails. Due to a ministry salary and going from December with extra Christmas money to January where it is mostly gone 🙂 this is a true treat to have a chance to win. Hope it’s a wonderful launch day for you, Robin! Thank you for your generous giveaways, (in)courage, and most importantly, thank you for your ongoing ministry to each of us.

  88. O. M. Goodness! So many in my life are wandering without a navigator. I would love to share this with them!

  89. Love the subtitle, so I’m sure I would love this book as well!! It would be such a blessing to win!

  90. What a thought provoking and interesting article especially in the climate of today.

    Looking forward to more in empowering messages in the future so, keep up the good work please!

  91. This comes across as a book that can bring great comfort to many – many people go through times of struggle and can wander and want to find their way back.

  92. I preordered them gem and I’ve been dying to get my hands on it ever since I hit complete order. I cannot wait to dive into these stories!

  93. I am certain this book will help a great many who have doubts and questions. It would be great to have this in our church library.

  105. These books sound amazing and I can definitely relate to the message. Would be so excited to receive and be able to dig in!

  107. Hi! I am most curious about this brand new book. I think that once I have read it I would like to pass it on to someone who needs it. That, or purchase it as a gift for a friend. Thank you for the opportunity to win this beautiful bundle. God Bless You and Yours. Sincerely, Cat

    Congratulations!

  111. As one who has wandered and still sometimes wonders, I’m always interested in another’s story. .

  112. Hello and thank you so much for the giveaway! My friend Lyli shared a post on Facebook recommending your book and then boom I’m here reading this post. I’m looking forward to reading the sample today.

  115. ROBIN DANCE!!!

    I am beyond thrilled for you and this book. It just arrived yesterday and I have your beautiful words (and exquisite cover!) and lovely Journey Guide sitting right next to me as I type this. I’m so excited to get to dig into the story of a sister I’ve known for so many years, but to get invited into the very heart of your story through this book. You’ve championed so many for so long that it’s now such an honor to get to celebrate you and this good, good work.

    Stopping here today to make sure you know I see you and I celebrate you!
    so much love
    Lisa-Jo

  116. Thank you for writing this book, Robin. I know it will truly minister to many people. Please pray that my daughter is among them.

  117. A giveaway!! What a wonderful way to celebrate your book launch. May your book be a blessing to all who read it:)

  118. Just coming out of a sabbatical time and this could be just the thing … sounds like a great read. Would be thrilled if I won. Lol.

  119. I could really use this book, this message. I thought that when I reached this age, 60, life would be easier and I’d have all the right answers. But no, it’s not and I don’t. I think this book would help me in many ways.
