Dear Friend of Music to Light the World,
We continue to depended on and experience God’s faithfulness in fulfilling His purposes for this unique ministry since 2004. Thank you for your generosity and partnership in multiplying and magnifying God’s presence to hearts and souls around the world. Your support yielded millions of God Encounters in 2021, and will plant seeds toward God’s Ephesians 3:20 immeasurably more in 2022. His Psalm 90:17 favor has been with the ministry as He continues to expand creativity, generosity, and influence. “May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands.”
God put two significant content ideas on my heart in January 2021, which the Board fully supported: 1) Release a new song every month, and 2) Launch a new video series titled Piano with Stanton Lanier. There were 14 new singles released in 2021 across all digital streaming platforms, and 12 video series episodes released on YouTube. We are trusting God for His “Big C” Creativity to bear much fruit.
In 2022 I am continuing to compose and release one new song each month, along with an inspirational blog post for each song title. I do my best to interact personally with every person who shares what the music has meant to them via email or social media. I will be doing some live performances and events as doors open for these opportunities. I am also working on and writing a future book of God stories from my life and music to inspire people in their life and faith journey.
Every year is filled with beautiful testimonials. Here is my favorite along with several 2021 highlights:
“I have recently found the teachings, and accepted Jesus into my heart. I want to thank you for being there for my dad. He absolutely loved your music and I just know it had great influence on his soul. God Bless you and your family.” — Lisa (Her dad died of cancer in summer 2017 soon after I visited, shared the Gospel, and played a benefit concert for him in Denver, CO, which he attended.)
