brianna_lantz Today I needed to look up from this scene and be reminded that while the joy of giving is a noble pursuit, it still isn't as good and true as keeping Jesus at the center of this crazy season.
//
Look at what God has done to get you to know Him personally. If the Son would come all this way to become a real person to you, don't you think the Holy Spirit will do anything in His power to make Jesus a real person to you in your heart? Christmas is an invitation to know Christ personally. Christmas is an invitation by God to say: Look what I've done to come near to you. Now draw near to Me. I don't want to be a concept; I want to be a friend. // Tim Keller

brianna_lantz The last seven months of calling San Diego home have been completely life-changing, crazy fun, and surprisingly easy. And as I spend another holiday in the great Northwest, I can't help but miss my new home. I'm so THANKFUL for the beautiful souls that have made moving to SD such a healthy transition for me. So today, I give thanks for each and every one of you. Thank you for welcoming me into your lives. 4w

brianna_lantz Thank you London for fall colors, streaky blue skies, and crisp morning walks. Oh, and for indulging my whims to live like a character in a Nora Ephron screenplay. You get me. 1mon

brianna_lantz Uganda is more beautiful than I ever imagined! Blown away by the warmth and joy of its people. I think they have more to teach me than I could ever offer them. 1mon

brianna_lantz We serve a God that promises to lead us along "fresh trails of adventure." Yet we often miss out on that because we spend so much time trying to forge our own path.

I used to be obsessed with doing things for the story. I lived by my own accord because I thought I knew what was best for me. Didn't take me long to realize that trying to live a good story on my own pales in comparison to the stories I will have when I simply surrender to a life orchestrated by a FUN and adventurous God. Man, I love this journey.

brianna_lantz "You hung the stars and You move the sea, and still You know me"

There's power in being seen and known. By God and by others. It is in this place that chains are broken and potential is unleashed. You're no longer defined by circumstance.

I want my life to be about seeing and knowing others. Giving a voice to the voiceless. Speaking light into darkness.

brianna_lantz "life cannot be understood flat on a page. it has to be lived; a person has to get out of his head, has to fall in love, has to memorize poems, has to jump off bridges into rivers, has to stand in an empty desert and whisper sonnets under his breath... we get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and resolution. it would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn't it?" // d. miller 3mon
