Determination~Winter Jam

Last year my kids had the joy of attending the Winter Jam concert when it came to town and loved it but wished they could have gotten better seats. So when they found out that it was coming back again this year, they decided they would get there even earlier to make sure they got some close seats this year.

For anyone not aware what Winter Jam is, it is one of the biggest christian music concerts, every winter they get 10 different christian artists together for a concert. The only catch is that you can’t purchase tickets in advance you purchase them at the door for only $10.

Here is a short video about this years tour:

Serena, Dustin, and Jenna (neighbor girl) decided to get in line at 6:00am for a concert that didn’t start until 7:00pm. The doors open at 6:00pm so that meant that they would stand in line for 12 hours with 15’F temperatures, I decided that if they wanted to stand in line for that long in the freezing cold they must want good seats pretty bad, so I let them. They were the first ones in line and even made it into the newspaper in the winter jam article as well as a picture of them sitting in line. Jake joined them a little bit before the doors opened.

This year Thousand Foot Krutch, The Newsboys, Lecrae, Tenth Avenue North, Plumb, New Song, and 4 other christian music artists who sang at the 4 hour long concert.

Jake and all the kids had a blast, and they said that it was worth them standing outside in below freezing temperatures for the concert. Oh to be young again 🙂

  1. Hi, my name is Jackie and I’m also a homeschool mom. My daughter is also in high school. I would say determination truly fits your older kids! Isn’t is great when kids love the Lord and are willing to do what it takes to praise Him with others?

    My daughter and I attended Winter Jam with her youth group a few years back and loved it. Toby Mac, Francesca Battistelli and many others were there. We had o.k. seats, but not nearly as good as your kids. It was an awesome night of praise and encouragement.

    Best wishes on a fruitful rest of the year.
