Christians, you are in a fight! The more you do for God, the more the Adversary hates your guts, and he will do everything to ruin you. Beware! You are fighting spirits and principalities. Life is a fight! DON’T GIVE IN!

Although David Derby and I have never met in person, we are brothers in Christ, nonetheless. I can relate to his journey because he was a student-athlete and he is a fighter who went through IT! We often hear the phrase, “you never know what someone is going through or what they have been through”.  Hearing his story is jaw dropping! Talk about going through the fire. WHOA! He entered prison as an atheist, and walked out a Christian. To God be the glory! David’s tattered past is behind him. Today, he has been blessed with the opportunity to coach student-athletes, all the while introducing them to the gospel. It is no wonder he was voted Father of the Year at his church. God is good all the time! I am Billy Yancey. God is THE GOAT!

Conversation with Chris Hart: "Trials and tribulations are a part of life. God literally designed those trials and tribulations to help make us into the person that He has called us to be".
July 11, 2023 - 40 min
Chris Hart and I were Midshipmen and teammates together at the US Naval Academy.  This interview gave us time to catch up, fellowship, and me the opportunity to apologize to my amazing friend publicly for putting him in a tough situation. Nevertheless, Chris went on to complete 41 CONSECUTIVE STARTS! In the words of one our favorite defensive backs coach, the late Coach Mike Drake, “He was IRREPLACEABLE! ”What’s more, Chris surged ahead thriving as an Engineer Officer in the United States Marine Corps. Upon retirement, Chris served as an area sales representative and regional sales manager over a 9-year career before deciding to join the financial services industry in 2014. Today, Chris proudly represents the Raymond James Financial Group in Murrieta, CA. He is a a financial advisor “who strives to provide a high level of customer service to clients. The opportunity to meet clients precisely where they are and help them to move along life’s journey towards abundant living through generosity is one of Chris’ greatest joy.” It goes without saying, that Chris gives God all the glory every second of the day. He does not just talk the talk. He walks the walk! So blessed to know him and call him my brother. I am Billy Yancey.

Two Men, Two Harleys, and a God-Given Timeout: Conversation with My Brother in Christ, Ed Barbato
July 4, 2023 - 43 min
Ed Barbato and I go wayyyy back. We worked out, hung out, and rode our Harley’s together.  Drugs and alcohol were a mainstay in our lives. We were somewhat of a menace in Virginia Beach. Drinking, drug’n, riding and barely surviving. Somehow we made it out alive. Ed moved to Tennessee finding himself alone for 8 years on a mountain, while I completed two divorces, a few bankruptcies, and bounced around to several residences. I was even homeless for a while. Nevertheless, God put both of us in TIMEOUT! I don’t think we will ever know HOW He did it, but He did. We are alive to speak on it, fellowship, giving God all the glory! I am Billy Yancey.

June 13, 2023 - 60 min
The conversation with my cousin, Dr. David Wall Rice, was very much like him, incredible!

He earned his Masters degree in Journalism from Columbia University and postdoctoral study at Teachers College, Columbia University.  My little cousin is doing BIG things!

She is loving, encouraging, and pushes him to greater heights. Mikki also mother’s their two sons, Biko and Stokely, who are amazing young men in their own rite. The apple does not fall too far from the tree! The Rice family is living life with a purpose. I am Billy Yancey. God is the GOAT!

Repentance: The Key To A Better Life
June 6, 2023 - 22 min
Repentance changes our path, our direction, as well as the outcome. And so does the lack there of. When we live with a disregard to what He expects from us, life is a shambles. When we live to give God the glory, honoring the Holy Spirit and being lead by His word, then life is grand! A simple apology is not enough. Being and living remorsefully are crucial. God knows our heart. Repent! Repent! Repent! I am Billy Yancey. God is THE GOAT!

THE POWER OF PRAYER!
May 31, 2023 - 21 min
One of the most powerful blessings bestowed on us from God was our ability to pray, and His power to answer our prayers. Unfortunately, many do not know the power of prayer. Although I had not always prayed when I was growing up, I do so earnestly today. There are a number of times throughout my life where prayer was an absolute necessity; attempted suicide, injuries, surgeries, DUI, drugs, fighting, cheating, reckless behavior, and much more. My son, William’s birth, was another time to pray. Our community and beyond prayed for Baby William. Despite doctors promising doom if we did not terminate his existence, William walks, talks, goes to high school, and enjoys playing basketball, baseball, and bowling immensely.  God always gives us more than we ask for. I pray lots, and I am blessed beyond measure. I am Billy Yancey.

Hurtful Language. The Power Of Words!
May 23, 2023 - 19 min
This message is not to call someone out, or bring hurt in any way. Only to make you aware that hurtful language exists, and it is not ok. Most importantly, we must recognize it and extricate it from our lives, or it will repeat forever. When we eliminate the negative, toxic, harmful pieces from our lives, God repairs us and fills in the gaps with love, happiness, and abundance. God showers us with His glory. I am not where I am today without Jesus Christ leading me to the Almighty. I let go and let God! I am Billy Yancey.

"No matter what it is that you are doing, PUT GOD FIRST!" Conversation with Captain Chris Thompson.
May 16, 2023 - 58 min
I have known Captain Chris Thompson since 1979! We were in the 5th grade together. We attended Landon School, NAPS, and then the U.S. Naval Academy together. Although our starting points were identical, our paths and journeys were very different. Chris was praying daily in the Rotunda Chapel at the Naval Academy, while I was running around town. Chris was a tremendous student-athlete. He grew up in Washington D.C., taking two city buses along with the Landon School bus to get to and from home every day. This did not stop him from being captain of the tennis team who dominated in the classroom and on the tennis court! Chris took his ability to lead along with his grit and tenacity onto Annapolis, MD to help prepare him for the rigors of being an officer in the U.S. Navy. After completing Supply Corp School in Atlanta, Georgia, he was soon attached to the USS INDEPENDENCE CV-62 from 1993-1995. Following serving on the USS INDEPENDENCE, over the next 28 years Chris successfully led in various positions on sea and land. Finally, retiring from active duty, completing 31 years of service in June of 2021. Today, retired Captain Chris Thompson is Director of Supply Chain for Winland Foods in Oakbrook, IL. He is married with three kids, still playing competitive tennis, and living a life dedicated to giving God the glory. I am Billy Yancey.
