About the Book

Our lives often feel precarious, leaving us worried that any new challenge might tip us off-balance. With so many tasks and responsibilities coming our way, we struggle to handle life in our own strength. But what if we didn’t have to? What if we saw our fragility not as a failure but as an invitation?

In Lean-to Living, Crystal Vance reminds us that self-sufficiency is not our goal. Instead, we’re called to rely on God and His all-sufficient strength. Just as a traditional lean-to structure can’t stand up on its own but must rest against a building with a strong foundation, we can only thrive in this constantly shifting life by resting on our strong, unchanging God.

Filled with stories from everyday life, this weekly devotional will encourage you to turn to God throughout the year. Each week’s devotional includes a key Scripture verse as well as suggested activities to help you apply the material. You’ll write out Scripture, consider areas of your life that need to be surrendered to God, and be challenged to grow in faith.

Come along on this weekly journey toward dependence on God.

About the Author

Crystal Vance is a wife and retired homeschooling mother of four children. She blogs at Lean-to Living and has authored The Teacher’s Lunchbox: Learning to Enjoy the Home School Journey. She leads local Bible studies and speaks at women’s events at churches in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Raised in the city, she now finds herself living on a small farm in Mooresville, Indiana, where God is teaching her countless lessons through the simple pleasures of everyday life and the constant demands of raising a family. Crystal and her husband, Mike, bought an 1800’s farmhouse that was in need of considerable attention. In their spare time, they are gradually restoring this beautiful piece of history and learning many life lessons along the way. For fun, Crystal enjoys reading, hiking, and Green Bay Packers football.
