Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

November 23rd, 2011

So one of the treasures I’ve experienced in recent years is hearing testimonies of the positive impact my music has made on kids and families. One of the unexpected places my music has gone is through the series “Little Praise Party”. It’s one of those things along the journey that I had no idea I’d do one day and even more so had no idea what a huge impact could be made. I’m so grateful for the opportunity that I’ve been given through the ministry of “Little Praise Party”. Last week on facebook I saw two different posts that put a smile on my face and I wanted to share them with you.

Story #1
Wish I would have gotten a picture of Bella walking around Hobby Lobby, with a swaddled baby jesus (which she took from their nativity display and swaddled herself), singing Yancy’s song “Whoa I have life, whoa I have peace, whoa I have joy cause Jesus gives life to me!”

Story #2
Chloe was singing “Praise Party” when she stopped suddenly and asked: “Nay Nay when we sing to Jesus, does His heart sparkle?” You know…I think it does.

Give your child experiences which can be through music to hide God’s word in their heart. Psalm 119:11 (NIV©1984) says “I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” If you want your child to grow up in love with Jesus you need to help them get His word in their heart. I think those two stories are great examples of what Psalm 8:1&2 (MSG) tells us: God, brilliant Lord, yours is a household name. Nursing infants gurgle choruses about you; toddlers shout the songs that drown out enemy talk, and silence atheist babble.

Don’t ever underestimate the power of a child praising God. They don’t have to be twelve or older to get it. They get it from the youngest of ages because God created them. He created them to seek and desire to bring praises to God. Create opportunities for them to express that praise that they were created for. After all, I agree with little Chloe….when we sing to Jesus, His heart sparkles!

Until next time,
YANCY

P.S. This isn’t a plug just a FYI…I’m thrilled that an all new “Little Praise Party” called “Happy Day Everyday” is releasing in January. I hope you’ll check it out. http://yancynotnancy.com/store/cds/new-little-praise-party-happy-everyday/

Give Christmas Promotion

November 8th, 2011

It’s November and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Here at Yancy Ministries we’re gearing up for an exciting Christmas concert season. We’ll be doing Christmas shows in Alabama, Indiana, Ohio, Texas and Tennessee. Hopefully you can come out to a Christmas concert if you live in those areas. Because we’re thinking about Christmas (and getting a bit giddy about it!) We thought it would be fun to help you kick off the season with some giving. Many of you have already fallen in love with “Have a Fancy Yancy Christmas”. It truly is a FUN Christmas CD that celebrates the greatest gift ever. Well, we have a gift for you. For a limited time we will GIVE you a “Have a Fancy Yancy Christmas” CD for every “Have a Fancy Yancy Christmas” CD you purchase. You could buy them for you or to give away. (Co-workers, volunteers, your kids’ classmates, Small groups, worship teams, pretty much any and everybody on your Christmas list.) So, what are you waiting for? Start this Christmas season off right with some giving. Remember for every “Have a Fancy Yancy Christmas” CD you order, we’ll send you two!

Merry CHRISTmas

November 8th, 2011

OK so I know my last post included pictures at the pumpkin patch….and I know that we haven’t even made it to Thanksgiving yet. But, still I’m excited because today at my local Target I walked in to a Christmas wonderland. It surprised me at first and then I remembered oh yeah, Halloween is over (YES!) so we do get the Christmas items. As a huge fan of Christmas (which if you’ve been reading for long you know this already) I love it all and really I love it any time of year. I don’t have to wait to put my tree up post-Thanksgiving. Today, as I walked in to Target I realized in multiple places their holiday signage said two words that have been missing from a lot of retail establishments “Merry Christmas”. Yes! I love it. No more “Happy Holidays”, it’s all about what the season is all about and that is Jesus Christ, born to us, the Savior of the world. I’m sure I’ll have many more posts about Christmas in the next two months but I think this is a win for us Christ followers. Don’t you agree? Merry Christmas!

Season of Thankfulness!

November 1st, 2011


It’s November! Can you believe it? This year has flown by and as we are nearing the end entering the last two months of the year it’s a special time. The holidays are upon us. Extra time with family and friends to rejoice and celebrate. The month of November is a time that we most often reflect on our blessings and give thanks! I encourage you to dig in and remind yourself of the things you should be grateful for. Have a thankful heart throughout this month (and always). Psalm 9:1 says “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart. I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” (NIV)

As I look back over this year I realize I have been so blessed. Sure, throughout all my life but even more so specifically 2011. I am so grateful for God’s goodness, faithfulness and provision in my life. Earlier this year my son Sparrow was born. He has been the gift that keeps on giving! There are many other things both big and small for which I’m so thankful I serve a God who loves me and has big plans for my life.

I am thankful for you! Because of you there are people to listen to my music. Because of you there’s people to give and support this ministry. To show you a little thanks for being in my life enjoy a 25% discount on anything you order from http://www.yancynotnancy.com through Sunday, November 6th using code: thankful

Here are a few recent fall pictures of Sparrow including him as “Charlie Daniels”. He’s 8 months now.

 

Until next time,
Yancy
