I am so excited to talk with Angela Lanter on TBB today. Angela was born in Akron, Ohio, is married to Matt Lanter, an actor, and a BIG congratulation on the arrival of their baby girl just a few weeks ago!
Angela and I talked about her love of fashion from a very young age, and shortly after moving to Los Angeles, CA she and Matt started a wildly popular fashion blog Hello Gorgeous. Creating this blog has truly fulfilled one of her lifelong dreams, being able to pour into other women. Hello Gorgeous is a place she can be “real” with the stuff nobody is talking about or topics women feel too embarrassed to share.
Admittedly, being an actors wife has its challenges, one of the biggest was moving from Los Angeles, CA to Vancouver, British Columbia where Matt worked on filming Timeless. The tough part for Angela was the long hours of being alone in a city where she didn’t know anyone and finding projects to fill her time. Angela learned to take advantage of the long days by diving into Proverbs 31, spending her time meditating, and reciting these verses. The encouragement from Proverbs 31 inspired her to create a refuge in their home for her husband, giving him a place to breathe and retreat after working ridiculously long days. Realistically, this was a tough time, but learning to surrender to self, and creating a comfortable safe place for your spouse, was worth all the lessons learned during this season. God really does know what He is doing.
In the interview we chat about relationships, building a community, reading books about marriage, dads, dating, hurt feelings, and learning to respect one another. I enjoyed our conversation so much.
