A new radio interview just broadcast today that shares more of my life and music story: http://www.empowerradio.net/podcasts/artasworship_032712_stantonlanier.mp3. The host decided to title it “Life is an Adventure to Live.” In 1999 I was profoundly moved by this phrase when I came across it in a book called “Wild at Heart” by John Eldredge. It was posed as a question – “Is your life more of a problem to solve, or an adventure to live?” Wow. It really cut to the heart. I immediately realized I had been trying to “solve” life ever since my child-like faith and sense of wonder began to be pressed down and diminished after elementary school. There was evidence of it now and then, but I didn’t begin truly experiencing living life as an adventure until 2000-2001, which happened to be when I started composing instrumental music. I hope this interview audio and these written thoughts inspire you to embrace “the adventure.”
