CINCINNATI – September 19, 2012 – Standard Publishing introduces a first-of-its-kind Vacation Bible School program for 2013. God’s Backyard Bible Camp™ – Under the Stars is the first SuperSimpleTM VBS and features Bible stories that all occur in the evening. This summer night theme adds a new element of excitement for children as they learn about and experience service.
SuperSimple™ means the kit has everything a church needs to plan and lead VBS.
I’m later writing this post than I had hoped. In August fifteen years ago I started my professional music journey. I recorded “Big Weather Change”. While recording my first CD I came back to the hotel one day to find out news that was historic. Princess Diana had died. Are you like me? Do you remember some of those super specific events in life down to the detail of where you were and what you were doing?
So if you’re one of those out there who loves social media sites then you probably know about Instagram. If you don’t it’s a super cool app where you take pictures (and tweak the pictures with some filters that makes your picture look even snazzier) and then you post it for your “followers” to see. You should totally check it out. Yancy has been on Instagram for awhile but this week we launched the official Yancy Instagram with the name “yancynotnancy”
In the September/October issue of K Magazine (a magazine for children’s ministry leaders) Yancy wrote an article on worship. It’s all about finding the right volunteers to help lead kids in worship. The article is called “We All Have Musical Chairs To Fill.” If you’re looking for some help in this area then check out what Yancy has to say on the subject.
We are so excited to SHOW you a little taste of the all new music and videos by Yancy for Standard Publishing’s 2013 VBS. Watch a sample right here:

The theme for 2013 is service. How kids can serve their world everyday. It’s called “God’s Backyard Bible Camp Under the Sun and Under the Stars”. Standard has created two curriculums to tailor fit whether a church is doing the traditional daytime VBS or an evening VBS.
September 11th. Two words that say so much. These past eleven years this country has been on a journey. There were some boulders thrown in our path and I don’t believe any of us could ever forget where we were when…
I was in a hotel in Ohio when the first tower was hit. By the time we loaded up the car and started heading off to the next city for my concert that night the second tower was hit.
Hello one and all.
I can’t believe it’s September….and I can’t believe summer is behind us. Where did the time go? My summer was filled with a bunch of concerts all around the US and Canada. I had a blast meeting new fans. Seeing old friends. Good times were had on the road.
Throughout the summer I worked on the music for Standard Publishing’s 2013 VBS “God’s Backyard Bible Camp” Go to: http://www.vacationbibleschool.com for all the details.
A little girl named Larissa celebrated her birthday in a fun way. She had a “Praise Party” Yancy style birthday party. Here’s a few pictures to show the fun she and her friends had. I am excited she chose to celebrate her birthday while making her praise and love for Jesus loud!
Due to many requests we’ve made a way for you to wish your friends “Happy Birthday” Yancy style. We’ve made “Happy Birthday To You” available from Little Praise Party-Happy Day Everyday CD and DVD on youtube.

Kids and parents have fallen in love with the music Yancy makes for families. From preteen all the way down to preschool Yancy has an unparalleled ability to lead all ages in worship. Churches and children’s ministry leaders in the US and around the world use her worship resources each week.
