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.
