Yancy to Yancy

Archive for November, 2012

For Christmas we have a limited edition hardcover version of the Rock-N-Happy Heart devotional. This 12 week daily devotional ties into the songs on the CD of the same name and because Yancy loves Christmas and the spirit of giving so much we are giving you a crazy good deal. While supplies last you can get the HARDCOVER devotional and CD for only $9.95. What? We know, it’s a great deal….so buy one for every preteen or elementary aged kid on your shopping list. We’ve had small groups and various kid discipleship ministries use this resource as well. The cool part is kids will learn about God’s word and how to apply it to their life. As they continue to listen and singalong with the music they’ll be reminded of the daily devotions they did about the message of those songs.

Earlier this year I watched some of the MTV Movie Awards. There was an award given and an acceptance speech that has stuck with me. Emma Stone was inspiring and challenging…especially if you’re a girl with a dream (and I classify myself as one!) I’ve been thinking about her words the past couple days and thought I’d share it with you. I hope you’re inspired to work harder, try more and dream bigger!

“Thank you, I’m a crier,” she said. “So, I looked up the actual definition of trailblazer, and it means someone who blazes a trail to be followed by others. And that’s an honor to hear you’re being associated with a concept like that.

“But the only thing I can hope that an award inspires is originality,” she added, “because the trailblazers I’ve looked up to and been inspired by are people like Gilda Radner and Bill Murray and John Candy and Charlie Chaplin and the Beatles and J.D. Salinger. Lorne Michaels, who reminds me the importance of comedy, and Cameron Crowe, whose work consistently reminds me of why I want to be an actor.”

After thanking her icons, Stone offered some inspiration to others.

“Those people are my creative trailblazers, but I’m not following any of their paths, and what’s incredible about them is they help make me want to be more myself because they’re all originals,” she said. “And I hope that you’ll find your trailblazers. And, trust me, I do not need to be one of them. I probably shouldn’t be one of them,” she laughed. “But that you’ll continue to harness your own originality and what makes you unique ’cause I know that when you’re a teenager — sometimes when you’re an adult — what sets you apart can sometimes feel like a burden and it’s not. And a lot of the time, it’s what makes you great. So I kind of sound like I live in a van down by the river right now.

“But I am deeply touched and grateful for this,” she said in closing.

My two favorite parts are:

“But that you’ll continue to harness your own originality and what makes you unique ’cause I know that when you’re a teenager — sometimes when you’re an adult — what sets you apart can sometimes feel like a burden and it’s not. And a lot of the time, it’s what makes you great.”

“I’m not following any of their paths, and what’s incredible about them is they help make me want to be more myself because they’re all originals,”

A song on my first record was called “Be Who You Are”….original or unique, whatever you want to call it, can be lonely and painful some of the time. I know from experience. But, there is much joy and I believe greater joy in being yourself…not some version of somebody else but the uniquely created God made you. We can all be trailblazers if we choose to be.

“Saddle up your horses, we’ve got a trail to blaze.” :)

 

Are you ready to put the Christmas season in motion? You know by now how much Yancy LOVES Christmas. It truly is her favorite time of year. Yancy wanted to have a little Christmas fun this season so she had a remix made of her song “Merry Christmas, Happy Christmas”. We think it’s quite fun and snazzy and will get your toe a tapping and probably your mouth a singing! How do you get this special Christmas remix you ask? Simple….just log on to Yancy’s facebook page https://www.facebook.com/yancynotnancy/app_191604677643238 be sure to “Like” Yancy and then download your Remix absolutely free. That’s pretty easy, huh. So, spread the word about this free Christmas music. Tell your friends so they can join in the fun too.

Fa la la la la…..
