Product Description

Product Description

A widowed mother of three struggles with financial insecurity then meets a father of three who sets her heart racing.

Heather Conway, daycare owner, has no extra money and very little faith. Where was God when her husband died, leaving her facing bankruptcy? Her fourteen-year-old son is out of control, she lives in a run-down two-bedroom rental, and she just bumped into a man who has her heart beating overtime.

Matt Sanders has just moved to town and placed his kids in Heather’s daycare. His admiration for Heather soon turns to love as their families intertwine through church activities and work on her daycare.

But six kids? Maybe Matt and Heather would be better off as friends. They find it’s hard to let go and blindly trust God to take care of their tomorrows. Learning to lean on God can take a lifetime or maybe only a lesson in trust.

Learning to Lean is a full-length inspirational romance of almost 60,000 words or 200 pages.

Excerpt from book:

Heather smiled at him. “I can’t believe we’re set up and unloaded already. I figured we’d be struggling with the tent until after dark.”

Matt chuckled. “Hey, I build houses for a living—or repair them, anyway. Surely you knew I could set up a tent.”

She met his teasing gaze and her heart flipped. Dressed in a suit for church or in a polo shirt and khaki shorts for biking, Matt couldn’t look any more handsome than he did at that moment. One look at him in blue jeans and faded T-shirt with a smudge of dirt across his jaw, and his dark hair wind tossed, stole all coherent thought from her mind.

She turned away. “I didn’t know you would help.”

“Sure you did.” He reached across the table and enfolded her hand in his. “I’ll always be here to help. Whenever you need me.”

She jerked her hand free and started to stand, to get away from the empty promises that hurt more than he could realize. “No, you can’t know that. No one can. If I’ve learned nothing else in the last four years, I’ve learned I have to stand on my own.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning to Lean June 8 2011

Since Mildred Colvin is one of my favorite authors, I knew before I began reading I'd like the book. Sure enough, she didn't let me down. Learning to Lean is one of those books you want to curl up with a cup of coffee in front of a roaring fire and read. The story whisks you out of your life into another world where wholesome characters face the challenges of single parenthood. When the widowed mother of three meets the widowed father of three, the story gets interesting. The Christian characters listen to their hearts and the Lord instead of their minds. It is well worth the download.

I was thrilled to see that Mildred Colvin has a new book out. Learning to Lean is another well written story that brings the reader right into the story. Excellent characterization. Heather and Matt are both believable as they handle modern day issues such as finances, troubled teens, and faith from a moral and Christian outlook. I would recommend this book to anyone.

By Crystal Burns - Published on

I knew this book would be one of my favorite books/authors within the first couple of chapters to me this book could do NO WRONG.This book tackled a lot of issues like widowed parents learning how to be single parents,having to deal with troubled teens,having financial problems,and Christians struggling with their faith.

I also loved how Heather and Matt didn't just jump into a relationship they stayed friends until they had tackled every issue they were dealing with before they decided if they wanted to combine their families.

Mildred Colvin just became one of my NEW favorite authors

This is another well written book by Ms. Colvin. The story gives so many experiences that single parents face that it makes for a very interesting, informative book. I loved the characters of the adults and the kids, which made for some believable situations. Good read for anyone!
