“My copy is highlighted, underlined and marked up, but it is never far from me.”
“Every time Robin takes the risky move of sharing her personal stories, she gives one more stepping stone to silencing the voices that ring in our heads.”
“I’ve never seen a book that has resonated with so many women from so many different walks and stages of life.”
“The college girls ate it up; a diverse women’s group delved in deep. One of the very few books for which I give my total recommendation.”
“Because Robin writes from the deeplly challenging experiences of her own heart, her work resonates with the wounds and limiting beliefs in all of us.”
“Robin’s daily life speaks as loudly as her words. She is living proof that out of hardship and pain, God can give new meaning and new hope to not only one person but many.”
From Eve’s Song
Unlike Biblical repentance that brings cleansing and hope, toxic shame causes Christians to hide or manage their fear that they’ll never be enough. This fiction (a deep Bible study disguised as a fiction) uses the story of Adam and Eve to help readers understand their own journey. Footnoted with over 300 scriptures, Eve’s Song helps each of us face the twists and turns of our own journey and find a new way of seeing God that makes all the difference. Watch the video trailer.
I cried, laughed, rejoiced and related to her. In ways I never would have dreamed. Robin has given us an amazing look and insight to understanding and healing life’s lessons. I love this book! I will read it often.
The first time, you’ll be wrapped up in the heart-wrenching story of Eve as she deals with loss, digs inside herself and reaches out in desperation for redemption. Chances are, she’ll have something to say that is just what you’ve been thinking too. Then, the second, third, maybe more times you read it, you’ll sit and think about the scriptures and the layers of meaning.
Eve was painted as a real woman we can all relate to and not just some mythical or a one-dimensional Biblical figure that many try to reduce her to. This book brought me to tears and laughs, while it was revealing the deep thoughts, fears and joys I keep in the chambers of my heart.

Pure the Journal: 40 days of radical purity for college students
“We’ve been conditioned to think of purity as a potential source of shame… “Oh, I didn’t know you struggled with that!” But true purity isn’t just about avoiding behaviors God doesn’t condone. Rather, purity can be defined Biblically as a powerful lifestyle of daily decisions, choosing love over lust, depth over fleeting desires, and spiritual authority over momentary comfort.”
The Bible, couple with brain science, blazes a bright path to a lifestyle of true intimacy. This vision of purity is a promise and a blessing. This forty-day experience over requires 40 minutes a day. Yet by the end of the journey, you will have gained concepts and tools that are foundation to long-term relational success.

Testimonials From Grace Calls, Power to Overcome, New York
“Allows God’s affirming presence to enter the deep areas of pain, shame, and abandonment in our lives. Robin and Dave’s vulnerability set the tone for safe honest dialogue.”
“Robin and David have opened the door to a new revolution in the church! Being vulnerable and willing to let go of the shame that you carry around for years because of the addictions you battle.”
“Best church sponsored event I’ve ever been to. I’ve gotten more clarity of God’s word and myself in one weekend that I have over years of time.”
“I did not know what to expect at a purity conference BUT this was not it. I felt loved, encouraged, lifted up, empowered, relatable and a host of other emotions. David and Robin’s level of vulnerability made it easy to share painful hurts and experiences.”
“I’m leaving here today thankful for the addiction I have because it has shown me God’s love for me in a different and personal way.”
“Your teamwork and functional expression of care and wisdom pouring from your own deeply personal exercises was a lesson and inspiration of its own. Inspired me to what it truly means to be a follower of Christ: a wounded healer.”
“For a long time I didn’t know how to understand the depth of my emotions and my pain. This workshop allowed me to vulnerably expose my truths and my traumas, and my thorns, not for the sake of dwelling in them, but accepting and healing with them.”
“We are all wounded in some form and that Jesus is the one that I have to allow to sit with me in my pain and help me to remember his Grace, his affirming presence is strongest in my weakness.”
“Today’s workshop delved deeply into the dark recess of shame. I leaned how to let Jesus into that darkness, explore the pain and break it up. I see the work I need to do to let the water out of the well of abandonment by being vulnerable.”
“One of the best times I’ve had to cleanse my soul of the burden of my past.”
“There are no workshops in the church worldwide that reach a depth, vulnerability and connectivity with God as the ones that Dave and Robin teach and lead.”
From Grace Calls Purity Weekend:
“An amazing workshop. I have gained new perspective and conviction in my own recovery journey. I certainly recommend this workshop to anyone.” — David Lang
“To say that David and Robin’s Grace Calls workshop was life-changing is an understatement. The materials they offered were awesome, but what made the difference was their vulnerability. They inspired many to have hope and to get the help they need.” — Vincent Sim, Lead Evangelist Central Christian Church, Singapore Certified Therapist
“Impacted me in an amazing way, especially with the Weidner’s own life experiences with addiction and codependency. I believe this gave hope and courage for people to come forward with their own stories of shame and get help.” — Phua Hee
“What an incredible and life changing weekend. Totally impacted by their lives and conviction from the Bible.” — Maureen
“Uniquely helpful and the accompanying books and audio lessons are must-haves. They met many needs in the church. I was personally moved by their vulnerability, called higher in many areas and am enjoying their materials.” — Karen Louis
“A very empowering weekend. From my discussion with the young sisters in my ministry (ages 17-20), they find themselves mostly fall into the trap of both love addiction and social media addiction. The sexual cycle and positive cycle of victory are extra helpful. It brought out a lot of awareness among the sisters how they use isolation and certain rituals to cope with their negative emotions.” — Yow Wei Ching
” They use the scriptures to deepen convictions on spiritual warfare. It also helps see that God’s hope for us to be pure in Him cannot be done on our own. The seminar made the different disciples I have spoken to even more grateful for the community they have and the journey God wants them to learn through grace and not perfection.” — Angelia Phua
“Dave and Robin Weidner spoke truthfully, candidly, openly, scripturally and lovingly to us during the Grace Calls workshop in the Singapore church. I am so grateful for the wave of faith and purity renewal the Weidners brought as we begin 2017! Dave and Robin are powerful vessels of hope, love, purity and grace!” — Ng Wee Keong
“Helped me see that I have been created to live a free, abundant and blessed life in God. It has rekindled my desire to fight for deeper connection with God and to recover what has been lost through addiction and the fear of shame.” — Chew Wai Yee
“Many came forward courageously to confess their brokenness and addictions and have began their journeys using the book Grace Calls. Personally, I am moved how the Weidners use their brokenness to reach out to many. The idea of being a wounded healer is hard for me as I shy away from helping others in my areas of struggle. Their lives demonstrate that it is not about me. If what I went through can be a support for others, then I should make those struggles available to others.” — Joyce Ng
