Wander is a podcast by two young mothers in the church seeking to explore the ways we voluntarily and involuntarily cover up our inherent personhood given to us by God. We will discuss what it means to strip away our false identities to rediscover Christ in ourselves.

Fresh, honest, down to earth

This is the podcast I’ve been hoping and praying for! Sisters-in-law Natalie and Emily make you feel like they are inviting you into their kitchen for a coffee time chat. But a chat that makes you reevaluate your purpose in life and your path to salvation. Wonderful.

Insightful and honest!

I have really enjoyed this podcast. As a father of two young children - it inspired much empathy and understanding for my wife as well as making sense of this season in context of our Orthodox faith.

A New Favorite Must Listen Podcast

I recommended this podcast as something that would be good for the young mothers in my church to discuss, and it has been so fruitful. The authors/hosts are warm and friendly, and discuss some sensitive subjects through the lens of Orthodox Christianity with love, gentleness, and truth.
