So I wanted to tell you about a couple cool things that some of my friends are doing that you just might want to check out for yourself.

The first one is a girl named Samantha from the Indianapolis, IN area. She attends a church called Connection Pointe. It’s a great church that I’ve had the honor of leading worship for not only their VBX summer event for kids but also their middle school services and High School Winter Retreat. Samantha is a big Yancy fan and she just recently started something pretty cool. (Especially cool for an 8 year old kid!) It’s Headbands for Hope. Samantha is making some pretty cute headbands and taking the profits from her sales and giving to two different charities. This is a young girl who gets what it means to use your talents to make a difference in this world and share the love of Jesus with others. I encourage you to check it out. You just might want to order a headband for yourself or maybe a gift for a friend and support this young entrepreneur who is using what they have to serve Jesus. Learn more at or

Another good friend of mine has a blog, Impress Your Kids, that offers great ideas for parents on things they could to teach their kids at the Bible. It may be a craft or an activity but I promise it will be some creative ideas of ways you bring Jesus and the Bible into your everyday life and play time with your kids. You can follow Impress Your Kids on twitter and facebook too. Here’s a link to their blog which you might want to check out right away. Currently they are doing a giveaway of my Rock-N-Happy Heart Devotional for elementary students. You just might be the lucky winner so go on the site and enter to win.

Thanks for taking the time to check out the cool things my friends are doing. Hope your summer is still rocking and your back to school plans are a rolling!
Until next time.
