Review: Born To Wander

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Review: Born To Wander

I loved this book. I have always felt a restlessness in my soul, and Born To Wander addresses the topic in a straightforward and authentic way.

Enter to win a copy of Born To Wander:


Why are we so restless?

All of us have a little wanderlust—a desire for that next thing, that new place, but this competes with our longings for security, control, and safety. We don’t like how it feels to be unsettled and uprooted. Whether we’re navigating a season of transition, dealing with the fallout of broken relationships, or wrestling with a deep sense of restlessness, we are all experiencing some form of exile. And most of us do whatever we can to numb the feelings of unbelonging, powerlessness, and unsettledness that come with it. But the truth is that exile has a profound purpose if we can just learn to lean in.

Over and over again Scripture tells us that the people of God are exiles and wanderers. And this is good news because exile is what transforms us into pilgrims. In Christ, we are no longer directionless wanderers, but pilgrim followers who have a clear purpose and a secure identity. In Born to Wander, Michelle Van Loon weaves together personal stories and keen insights on the biblical themes of pilgrimage and exile.  She will help you embrace your own pilgrim identity and reorient your heart toward the God who leads you home. Engaging and thoughtful, enhanced with practical suggestions, prayers, and questions, Born to Wander will teach how to trust God even when you don’t understand what’s happening around you and follow Him even when it hurts.

If you keep chasing security, you’ll never find it. Embrace the purpose behind the wandering and discover the freedom and safety of resting in God alone.

“Every one of us carries a restlessness that runs as deep as the marrow of our born-again bones. Our relationships shift like tectonic plates. We change jobs. We switch churches. And our culture tells us the cure for our restlessness is to buy a new mattress, a new car, or a new tube of toothpaste.”

AuthorPhoto_SunnyLeeAn Interview with Sunny Lee

What do you think the most important takeaway from this book is?

The important takeaway from the book is that Money Masters and Money Monsters are created through what they’re taught. Our children are the most common money monsters and their parents are often their creators. Like most skills in life, when our children are taught money skills early, they can become Money Masters who can take charge of their finances and life. In my book, I will show you the seven simple habits that I taught my sons in order to make them Money Masters. Instead of depending on me to give money to them and tell them what to do, my sons know how to earn, save, give and invest money for their future. It’s like a teaching a man to fish instead of simply giving him a fish. When a man is taught this skill, he can eat for lifetime.


BookCover_SunnyLeeHow has your experience as a financial adviser changed the way you look at money?

Money is essential to a safe, comfortable life, and money is good and useful. It is not the root of all evil, but the love of money is. In my profession, I’ve met many generous multi-millionaires who love giving and sharing. However, I’ve also met many people whose ultimate goal in their lives is to make lots of money and get rich. They are willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want, and it’s very dangerous to be in that kind of state of mind. We reap what we sow, whether good or bad, and that’s the law of sowing and reaping.


As a financial adviser, what are the biggest mistakes people make when creating a financial plan, and how would you recommend avoiding it?

The biggest mistake people often make is not making any plans at all for their financial future, and they keep their fingers crossed wishing and hoping that they will be fine. However, “if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail” as Benjamin Franklin said. You can’t be exempt from life being life. Life happens all the time no matter who you are or how well you are prepared. Rain falls on everybody, so you need to have a good financial plan if you want to have a good life.

Another mistake many people often make when they create a financial plan is that they don’t ask for help nor seek advice from financial professionals in the process. Nobody knows everything, but everybody knows something. Creating a financial plan is like building a house – if you don’t lay a solid foundation first, the house will collapse. It’s like a building a house on the sand instead of rock. A good financial plan requires both short-term and long-term goals as well as many detailed action plans to reach those goals. It also requires commitment and persistence until you get the job done. Having a long-term financial plan is like running a marathon. You need to be on the racetrack no matter what happens along the way until you finish the race. In the same way, your financial game is not over until your life is over, so don’t make permanent financial decisions based on temporary events in life, and don’t try to make a right plan but make a plan first and make it right.

voice-waterbottleAs Christians and work-at-home moms, we know how important positivity is. I’m always on the lookout for positive, family friendly shows, movies and things happening in our media so that we can help promote them and let them know we want more Christian content in Hollywood.

If you’ve watched the tv show The Voice, you’ll know it’s an example of this. In fact, when Executive Producer Mark Burnett (The Bible, Son of God, Survivor, Shark Tank, etc..) pitched the show, he was told that a show that didn’t include humiliation would never work … but Mark went ahead and created the show specifically to ONLY build people up!

“One thing we know about The Voice is that families tend to watch together in groups- that’s really great. Anything that can be done to foster the enjoyment of families as a group, you know The Voice absolutely is young America’s show, and kids are dragging their parents to watch the show with them, its an uplifting show. People said in the beginning “you’ll never ever pull off a singing show that doesn’t have a humiliation factor”- that was totally wrong. America loves The Voice, it’s the #1 show and doesn’t humiliate anyone. The Voice is a great, family-friendly, uplifting show. 
“Everybody knows that I, and my wife Roma, spent a lot of time in churches, nation-wide with products like The Bible, and therefore we get to interact with a lot of people in the faith community. The faith community love The Voice. It’s a fun show, it has excellent music and its also safe, family-friendly programming. Very attractive to families nation wide.”
– Mark Burnett

We’re excited to have some water bottles to giveaway courtesy of The Voice!

Travis Thrasher’s book “Home Run”

The Story of a Man Who Runs Away . . . All the Way Home

Major League baseball player Cory Brand excels at hitting home runs—but he’s striking out in his personal life. After years of hard partying and reckless living, a DUI and team suspension land him back in the Oklahoma town where he started.

Forced to coach the local Little League team and spend eight weeks in Celebrate Recovery©, the only twelve-step program in town, Cory must face the memories of an abusive father—and the love Cory left behind. What he doesn’t realize is that the road to recovery will take him through the childhood pain he longs to forget and into a freedom he’s never known before.

Based on the major motion picture starring Vivica A. Fox and Scott Elrod, Home Run: The Novel reminds us that no one is beyond the healing power of God.
