The snow flakes are flying in Michigan as the tempatures drop and the frost gathers. That means it's time for some Christmas Music! With so much worldly holiday music out there, it's a real treat to be able to provide you with the peaceful and inspiring songs that call to mind the birth of the Lord Jesus, as such music helps us to cherish the gift of the Savior. The angels sang, "Glory to God in the highest,And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" (Luke 2:14)
We are very blessed to have Stanton Lanier's music on our station. The best introduction to Stanton Lanier is to first listen to his music before you listen to his story. Stanton's stated mission, to offer "peace and rest in a hurried world," is accomplished through storytelling, but not in words. His stories are told through instrumental melodies on the piano, transporting a global listening audience to that unique interior place that brings peace to each person's life and circumstances. Many of his live performances are coupled with exquisite pictures of nature that create a powerful sensory experience.
Music to Light the World is the non-profit organization Stanton founded in 2004 with a vision to offer "peace to the soul" through scripture inspired piano. This organization brings peace, hope and healing to many who need it most through donating CDs and performances to groups such as cancer patients, families who have lost children to cancer, hospitals and inner city ministries. Get Music, Give Hope is an initiative where, for every album purchased, Music to Light the World donates one album to a cancer center or hospital. Music to Light the World is gaining strength and support from prominent philanthropists in Atlanta and beyond who are equally dedicated to touching lives with a message of hope.
Stanton Lanier lives in Atlanta with his wife and two children. He enjoys time with family and friends, sports, travel and cooking. One of Stanton's favorite quotes is "Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive" (from the book "Wild at Heart" by John Eldredge).
