Winter Jam 2015 at the BJCC


Yep. PicLab. Don't judge me, I have self-imposed deadlines to make
March has been a whirlwind of me attempting to get my act together...and sort of failing...but I wanted to share my Winter Jam experience with you all before the month's up!

So. Winter Jam. 

It's pretty much one of the coolest (Christian) concert events in the history of ever, and I got to see it at the BJCC the weekend before last. 10 bands for $10?! I mean, you just can't pass that up! (And Skillet *_*! 'Nuff said.)
  
If you want to learn more about the history of Winter Jam and/or the artists that participated this time around, check out their site :). You can also follow WJT on several social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter @winterjamtour.

The concert was so incredible I didn't much care that we waited in the wrong line for over an hour, then waited in the right line (while it was sprinkling) for about as long...yeah...I dunno how that happened, either.

Anyway, if you have the opportunity to go to Winterjam, go!! I had so much fun :)

Also, waiting in the wrong line wasn't so bad because...we got to see a mini live performance by About a Mile!! Woot woot. It was totally unexpected; they just came walking down the street with their equipment, jumped  onto a wall, and informed us they were About a Mile before singing their single, Satisfied. Here's a 16 second vid:

Yeah....It would've been longer than that, but my phone decided I had too much memory taken up :/. Lame.

And, for helping the band out, one of the members of my youth group scored a free signed CD! :D 

Favorite bands of the evening, in no particular order:
About a Mile (backflip onto the stage as an intro? Check)
Francesca Battistelli (she sounds even more incredible live!)
Jeremy Camp  
Skillet 
Here are some pics!

Simple and sweet, right? I like it :)

Synopsis
Her Sister’s Shoes is a contemporary women’s novel that proves the healing power of family. Set in the South Carolina Lowcountry and packed with Southern charm and memorable characters, Her Sister’s Shoes is the story of three sisters—Samantha, Jackie, and Faith—who struggle to balance the demands of career and family while remaining true to themselves. 

In the midst of their individual challenges, the Sweeney sisters must cope with their mother’s mental decline. Is Lovie in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, or is her odd behavior normal for a woman her age? No one, including Lovie, understands her obsession with a rusty key she wears around her neck.

About the Author
Ashley Farley is a wife and mother of two college-aged children. She grew up in the salty marshes of South Carolina, but now lives in Richmond, Virginia, a city she loves for its history and traditions.

After her brother died in 1999 of an accidental overdose, she turned to writing as a way of releasing her pent-up emotions. She wrote SAVING BEN in honor of Neal, the boy she worshipped, the man she could not save. SAVING BEN is not a memoir, but a story about the special bond between siblings.

Look for HER SISTER'S SHOES, a women's novel that proves the healing power of family, scheduled for release on June 24, 2015.
