Sometimes, you need to let go in order to lean in closer to God.

In this daily devotional for the Lenten season, bestselling author Nicole Massie Martin takes us on a hope-filled journey of letting go of all that keeps us from experiencing the joy of resurrection. Daily reflections and prayers invite us to lean into God's grace and let go of our own agendas and practices that hold us back from the abundant life God calls us to enjoy and share with the world. Whether this is your first Lenten journey or one of many, Leaning In, Letting Go inspires lasting change for all your journeys to come.

Leaning In, Letting Go helps you:

o Lean into God's grace and let go of our sense of control
o Lean into God's perspective and let go of our own preconceptions
o Lean into God's healing and let go of our pain
o Explore God and ourselves with greater clarity

Leaning In, Letting Go includes 40 days of scripture readings, reflections, and prayers, beginning with Ash Wednesday and continuing through the Easter season. Purchase copies for yourself and your entire congregation and prepare for a season of powerful spiritual growth.
