Expand a partition in Centos 7 Linux with Virtualmin

I have a CentOS 7 Linux server (a VM), I've made the disk bigger (was 60GB, now it's 100GB).

I am running Virtualmin on this server to help me with managing the server, but I need to adjust the /home partition for more space and I don't see that option in virtualmin/webmin.

here is my partition list:
[root@D-APP02 ~]# lsblk
NAME            MAJ:MIN RM  SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
fd0               2:0    1    4K  0 disk
sda               8:0    0  100G  0 disk
├─sda1            8:1    0  500M  0 part /boot
└─sda2            8:2    0 59.5G  0 part
  ├─centos-root 253:0    0 38.8G  0 lvm  /
  ├─centos-swap 253:1    0  1.8G  0 lvm  [SWAP]
  └─centos-home 253:2    0 18.9G  0 lvm  /home
sr0              11:0    1 1024M  0 rom

as you can see I have 100GB on sda, so i need to expand sda2 partition and the /home lvm

thanks very much,

I just resolved it - sorry - I used Gparted Live ISO, mounted it to the vm, booted and resized sda2. Rebooted into Centos, and used webmin to expand the logical volume of /home.

[root@D-APP02 ~]# lsblk
NAME            MAJ:MIN RM  SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
fd0               2:0    1    4K  0 disk
sda               8:0    0  100G  0 disk
├─sda1            8:1    0  500M  0 part /boot
└─sda2            8:2    0 99.5G  0 part
  ├─centos-root 253:0    0 38.8G  0 lvm  /
  ├─centos-swap 253:1    0  1.8G  0 lvm  [SWAP]
  └─centos-home 253:2    0   59G  0 lvm  /home
sr0              11:0    1 1024M  0 rom
