Artist bio

Nancy Hance had an early connection with music and was blessed with piano lessons from age 6. She learned the flute at 15 and won a two year scholarship in music. During college she discovered that the Holy Spirit wants to have a close relationship with all believers. This added a new dimension to her music, one of deep worship and high praise. Her songs catalogue her spiritual journey. She has since lead worship at local churches and helped start a women’s ministry called ReSeven. For over twenty years she served on the ministry council, the board of directors and the music leader. Nancy Hance had an early connection with music and was blessed with piano lessons from age 6.

Artist Statement

This is a song about drawing on the great strength of the Father when faced with the battles and hardships of life. Without Him I can't do anything, not even put on the armor He provides for us. But through Him I can do all things. It was created as a direct result of this contest and it's challenge to create a work based on a scripture passage.

How it fits into contest

This is totally based on the scripture passage and gave me new insight into my need for depending on the Holy Spirit and drawing my strength from the Lord.
