Stay Tuned!

A few thoughts...

Haven't posted a great deal lately. The busyness of life here in our household just went up a notch this week as Bryan started school this week. He's a sophomore now and that really just doesn't seem right. We are back on a "routine" schedule now and I sorta like seems to help me a bit.

Today Ellie had a doctors appointment...while she was there Holly asked the nurse to measure and weigh her. In almost a year she's gained like ten pounds and grown "like a weed." What a difference a year has made in her life and in ours.

I can truly type that phrase of my life being different because of Ellie in our family. We hear the phrase all the time from people, "Ellie's life will never be the same because of what you guys did." But the reality is our lives will never be the same. I am different than I was a year ago and I continue to have a very constant struggle in my mind about what's next.

Yep Ellie is home, but there is still 147 million others out there who are orphaned. Are we done? Am I supposed to think that we've done our part? What are we to do next? What about those 147 million? What about those who are in our own community who live in the same conditions that Ellie came from? Are we supposed to adopt again? Are we supposed "to do" something else?

I have a lot of distractions in my life that I can run to when I begin to think about these questions. I won't list these distractions because I'm not on a crusade to make anyone "feel" guilty. However you could probably guess what some of those distractions are...might be some of the same ones you have.

I watched a video that a former youth had posted on her blog. She and her husband just recently adopted from Ethiopia. The video was done by a group called "Ordinary Hero" and it just really broke me up a bit. The video is real, the images are real, the kids and their stories are real...we were there this time last year. So as I'm watching this video I'm thinking about those questions up there.

Do me a favor and watch this video...and then do some thinking about what we are supposed to do. I'm still struggling about what to do...maybe you could help me.

Gotcha Day!

What a difference a year has made. My beautiful bride knocked it out of the park in her post about "Gotcha Day." So once again I'm going to link you to her blog to read about "Gotcha Day."

Vacation 2010

I forgot how much I love the beach. We returned home yesterday from ten days on the beach...Madeira Beach, FL. GREAT time away with my family. Probably one of the most restful vacations ever. No schedule to keep, no big decisions to make, and I never once wore my watch.

We ate some great seafood (my favorite is grouper)...shopped at John's Pass...rode some jet ski's...went shark fishing...made lots of sandcastles...swam at the pool and in the ocean...some good reading on the deck...great times alone with the Father.

Lots of memories were made...I love me family. I'm ready to go back!

Retro Music

Ever get into a "retro music" mood? That's been me lately with an oldie, but a goodie! Remember the band Live? Ed Kowalczyk and crew were a HUGE hit back in the early 90's right about the time when Nirvana hit the scene.

I came across a great article about Ed the other day and how he had come back to his faith in Jesus Christ. The band seemed to always have some pretty heavy Christian overtones to their lyrics.'s one of my "Live" favorites...enjoy!

It's allmost here!

In t-minus six days the Prosser family will be on a big ole jet airliner...and heading off for some R&R. Destination? Maderia Beach, Florida (right below Clearwater) So far no oil! I really don't think that will be an issue...but if I start seeing "tar balls" you'll probably hear me scream.

We haven't been to the beach in about three years. Typically we have gone with my side of the family, but this time around it will be just the four of us.

I'm really looking forward to getting away...haven't taken any time off since Christmas last year. So I am definitely ready. Agenda for the week? That's easy...making some serious family memories, eating at our favorite places (Frog Pond, Crabby Bills, The Hut to name a few!), and making sure that the biggest decision each day will be to decided where to eat that night!

I'm one that really enjoys the anticipation of the vacation. I'll look at pics from the past, drink coffee from my Frog Pond cup and talk about past memories with Holly and Bryan.

It's going to be a good time...right now I want to continue to anticipate and savor the countdown.

The Missional Church

I believe this is what the church is supposed to look like. The term "Missional Church" is more than a buzz's biblical.

Ecclesiastes 7:2

I'm going to copy a journal entry that I made this morning...yep, I keep another journal in a notebook. Here it is:

I went to another funeral last night - the fifth one in two weeks. Pretty uncommon for us to have this many in such a short time. Every service I attended, I listened, thought, prayed, wondered, re-focused. Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 7:2, "Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties. After all, everyone dies - so the living should take this heart." He was so right - going to a funeral service makes you, forces you to think about life - your life! That's what I did last night. My friend Matt Flynn died of MS at the age of 51. That's too young to die. Tragic and sad, yet last night was a true celebration - I believe God was worshiped, people were challenged, people remembered. Pictures of Matt last night was the highlight for me - pictures of a man who lived life to its fullest, even to the very end.

Maybe everyone does this...whenever I go to a funeral, I begin to think what my funeral would look like. What would be said? Who would be sharing? What was my life all about? Really makes you think...reminds me to live life to its fullest.

Healing Day

I couldn't have said this any better than my beautiful go here to see why we celebrate June 21st.

Tuesday, June 08, 2010


Here are some pretty incredible statues that are found all the world. Anyone seen one of these live??


Every now and then Bryan will say the word "FAIL" when something or someone "fails." I came across this web site the other's all about people or things that FAIL. Blunders, misquotes, etc.

Ellie just got a new kiddie pool last week...but it was nothing like this!

My day of birth...

So today I'm 42. Don't feel like 42, not sure what it's supposed to feel like. My family gave me a very cool present. We are going to Florida this summer for vacation and while we are there Holly booked a Shark Fishing Excursion for me and Bryan! We'll set sail at 7pm and return at midnight. Never been fishing for shark! What a great gift!!

Other way cool gifts:
-scored some CA$H and bought a new circular saw. Trying to add more to the "woodshop."
-German Chocolate cake from mom! This is the best cake in the world and it's all mine!
-might use some cash for something I've been contemplating for a long time...I'll share in a later post.

Today...I'm working at church. Tonight we're grilling out. Just some great time with my family.

Can't believe I'm forty-two.

Freedom & Memorial Day Weekend

I'm sure there are a thousand ways to define "freedom" and chances are we all have different ideas behind it's truest meaning. I would suspect most Americans do not have a notion of what it would mean not to have freedom...including myself.

So I try to educate myself and remember what was put on the line in order for me to do something as simple as blogging, not to mention a thousand other things that we Americans have the "freedom" to do.

Tomorrow is Memorial Day...formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. I can't recall anyone in my family who has died while serving in the military...but when I get a chance to speak to a veteran I try to convey my thanks to them for their service.

A high price was paid, no doubt. I think a great reminder for all Americans is to watch "Saving Private Ryan" if not the whole movie, just the first 15 minutes. It depicts what D-day could have looked like. It's gruesome and raw to watch. One day I want Bryan to sit and watch it with me. I think it's a good reminder to know the price for freedom.

In connection to my relationship with God. I have experienced "freedom" from a former way of living by accepting God's son Jesus, as my Lord and Savior. But that freedom came with a price.

No huge plans for Memorial Day. Bryan has to go to school. Holly, Ellie and I are going to help a fellow church move to a new location. It will some great time spent with family and friends.

It comes with the territory

Bryan had an unfortunate skateboarding accident Saturday afternoon. He was on EKU's campus riding on his new long board. He was shredding into a curve that was a little too sharp and he knew he had to bail. So he jumped for the grass and the pictures tell the rest of the story.

I'm hurting for my a parent you never want your children to encounter any kind of harm. But, being that Bryan is a skateboarder...this comes with the territory.

I remember when I was 13 years old and went down a hill that was way too much for my ability...I ended up with a lot of road rash much like Bryan's...even have a scar on my hand to be a permanent reminder!

After he was cleaned and bandaged up I asked him if he was getting back on that thing...he said, "Oh yea!" I'm glad to hear him say that...just because you fall down doing something you love, doesn't mean you just stay down...that's where the passion and zeal kick in!

Tuesday, May 18, 2010


I recently purchased a new bible software called "glo". It's a multi-dimensional bible program with HD videos, Interactive maps, time lines, and oh yea it has the bible as well!

I've been playing around with it for a couple of days. Very impressive...very user friendly. I amazed how passionate people are about putting God's word in a format like this with some very cool 'bells and whistles'.

Here's a link to check it out...enjoy.

Running after the Mini

I ran the mini marathon a few weeks ago...13.1 miles! This is was fourth time running this race, twice in high school...last year of course was the "Run for Ellie" and then this year.

Finished the race despite some serious leg cramping at mile ten. Never have I experienced this kind of cramping before. I guess not enough water inside of me.

This year I was extremely excited that Holly completed her first mini. Even with a temperature of 101 at the beginning of the race. Her fever broke about mile nine and she finished very strong! I was so proud of my wife!'s been almost a month since the mini and on Tuesday this past week I ran for the first time since and in all actuality it felt as if it was the first time that I had ever ran!! Dang it was tough. Just ran three miles, but it felt like ten.

Got out again tonight and ran three again...not as bad, but tough.

Not sure what's next in my "running career." I'm considering doing a 5K on Memorial Day and then a 10K on July 3rd. I really enjoy the first mile and then when the running is complete.

We'll goal is to do three miles three times a week, maybe build from there. My mind would like to attempt a full marathon...but my body at this point is yelling, "You got to be kidding me!"

Happy Mama's Day

Holly is an excellent mom. Lately Ellie has been calling her "mama"...not sure where that came from, but it's cute.

I've learned so much about being a parent by watching Holly with Bryan and Ellie. She loves her children..she exercises great patience with them...she's definitely a nurturer. I love to listen to her explain life things to Bryan and Ellie...she uses great discretion with them and she knows how to be a fun mom.

But most importantly she is a Godly mom who strives to teach God lessons along the way. This comes natural to her because she is a Godly women.

Happy Mama's Day Bird...I love you so much...You are an incredible mom.

Marking up your bible

I remember sitting in a seminary class once and the discussion came up about underlining your favorite verses in your know marking it up.

One guy in particular said that he doesn't do that because you would have to underline everything...everything is "worthy" of underlining in the bible. I didn't really agree...I'm pretty sure not too many people have underlined Psalm 137:9 (go ahead and look it up, it's one of those obscure verses in the bible, but there for a reason...that's another post)

Well I'm a bible highlighter. I've underlined verse, written notes, etc. all throughout my Bible. I also sometimes put dates beside a verse...all of this to remind me of a particular season of my life where that verse was powerful and helpful.

Is it wrong to mark up God's word? I don't think so. Matter of fact I think Christians cut verses out of the Bible that they don't like...maybe not literally, but they may ignore verses that strike some serious nerves in our lives. Believe me, I'm guilty of this too!

I remember a quote from my youth minister Kerry Jones...he was preaching in "big church" once and he said, "I want you to underline that verse, use a pen, pencil, crayon...gosh maybe even spit on it to remember where it is."

I've underlined in pen, highlighters, pencil...but never spit. At least not yet!

Happy Star Wars Day

Huh? I had no idea and I consider myself a Star Wars nerd...a cool Star Wars nerd (Can nerd and cool exist in the same sentence??) is unofficially Star Wars Day.

Here's an insert from Wikipedia:

This day is considered an unoffical holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate Star Wars culture and remember the films. [1]

May 4 is called Star Wars Day (also sometimes known as Luke Skywalker Day) because of a pun on the similarity between "May the 4th be with you" and "May the Force be with you", a phrase often spoken in the Star Wars movies.

May the Fourth Be with You!

Blogging vs Facebook

So my struggle of which social media venue to devote time is this...Facebook or Blogging.

I've thoroughly enjoyed my blogging years, but FB seems to be where more people are and it's just easier to communicate little thoughts about life, etc.

Blogging provides opportunity for more in depth thoughts, stories, and rants. I really enjoy looking back three years ago to see "where I was" in life, even with pics.

On the flip side Facebook has opened the door to reconnection with so many friends and family. In the past year I've communicated more with friends I graduated with in high school...connected with family members that I typically see at funerals.

Hmmmm...I'm a torn. Do I continue blogging? If you follow my blog you know that I can go in spurts of drought from time to time. What do you think?

Easter Sunday

It's Saturday but Sunday is coming...Easter Sunday! Far more than Easter bunnies and eggs...never really understood that one, even when I was little.

Here are a few words that come to mind when I think about Easter weekend:
Finished, Pain, Hope, Completion, Forgiveness, GRACE, Love, selfless, Jesus, worship, sad, anticipation, amazing, resurrection, miraculous, mercy, obedience...

I know there are others...many others, but these stand out to me.

Because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, my life has never been the same. For God so loved Jeff that He gave His one and only Son that if Jeff believes in Him, He will not perish, but have everlasting life. Can you insert your name?

Resurrection Sunday is what separates Christianity from ALL religions of the world. Go to the graves of all those other gods and they will be there...but if you go to the grave of Jesus won't find Him there because He overcame death.

That's a powerful, almighty God.

In training...

Mini-Marathon is in four are some thoughts...

-The best part about when it's over! So why run? It's a goal...something that drives my competitive side...
-Got some new running shoes last week...after running ten miles on Saturday I came to the conclusion that buying the shoes was EXACTLY what I needed. Feet didn't hurt afterward, knees felt great...good money spent!
-Running shoes last anywhere between 300-600 miles.
-After Saturday's run my calves are still on fire!
-Saturday I ran with my buddy Jon...running buddies are a good thing...that encouragement part was pretty huge for me, especially trekking up a steep, long hill.
-PROUD of my wife Hollybird...she's been rocking the training. Did I mention I was PROUD of her!
-Right now I'm averaging a 10:30 - 11:00 minute per mile...would love to make that a solid 10 minute mile.
-My goal for the mini is too finish in 2 hours and 15 minutes.

The Cuse goes down!

Here's a little video I found online that recaps Saturday's game between the Cards and Syracuse. If you missed the missed a great game (even if you are a cat fan!).

There could not have been a better way to end a 50+ year era at Freedom Hall...really wanted to be there, but loved watching at home with Holly.

Hopefully the Cards will continue on with Saturday's high as they play Cincinnati tonight in the Big East Tournament.

The "new" Karate Kid?

I am a BIG time fan of the original Karate Kid (1984)...the first one that is, not Karate Kid 2, 3, 4...was there a four?? Anyhoo...loved the first one, thought Ralph Macchio was great, but Pat Morita was even better as Mr. Miyagi.

So when I saw this I thought...nah, can't touch the original...after watching the trailer I thought...hmmmmmmm...maybe! Enjoy...comes out this summer!

Constructive Criticism and American Idol

I like to think I'm a fan of Constructive Criticism. I try to welcome this and again I think most folks would SAY they want that, but do we really?

First off CC is simply to critique an individual so they will benefit or improve. Sounds simple and nice, but not all people are receptive to it.

I like and really try to welcome biggest fan that I look to for this is my wife Holly, because she is honest and straightforward, yet gentle. Typically after I may preach or teach I'll ask her, "okay give me some constructive criticism..." For me...that's how I grow and learn. If someone just continues to "tickle" my ears I'll never benefit or improve.

Again, there are certain people who give me this and I hold on to their comments and allow them to help me improve. Notice I said certain people! Some of you who read this blog are some of those certain people.

The other night I was watching American Idol. One of the guys did his thing and waited to hear from the panel. The first three judges did not care for his performance, thought he missed it, didn't deliver...BUT when it was Simon's turn, he said, "I disagree with the others and think you hit a home run." You could see this guys face, demeanor, energy...every thing changed about him at that moment of one man's comment. It was like the other comments that were made...didn't matter! Oohh...that's powerful and I think there's a lesson in that.

Now I'm not advocating that we act and brutally criticize like a Simon...but I bet if you ask all the contestants of all the seasons of American Idol which judge's comments do you respect the most...I bet 95% would say Simon's.

There's a lesson there...stew on that a bit...let me know what you think...

Freedom Hall

This Saturday night is a big night for Louisville Cardinal Basketball. For 54 seasons Freedom Hall has been the home of not only Cardinal basketball, but to also several Final Fours, Sweet 16's, the ABA...but to me and most importantly Cardinal Basketball. Next season the Cards will have a very nice, shiny new, palatial home in downtown Louisville. We drove by it last weekend and it is something to see!

From time to time folks ask why I am such a BIG UofL fan...lots of reasons, one, that's my hometown and most my buddies were Card fans. But the one thing that "sold" me as a fan was the night my dad took me to my very first UL game. It was 1977 and I remember my dad coming home from work...he told me he wanted to go to the UL game that night and then he said to me, "You want to go?" Of course my sister Lisa and brother Scott were a bit jealous, but they got over it.

I remember driving up to the Fairgrounds and walking up to the ticket booth, it was a cold night, and dad told the ticket man, "Give me your two best seats." We were in the end zone of Freedom Hall...the place was rocking, really don't remember who they were playing, but it didn't matter. We were watching the Cards doing warm-ups and my dad pointed out the man, the myth, the legend, Darrell "Dr. Dunkenstein" Griffith.

From that night on I was sold as a fan of the Cards. Since then I've been to plenty of Cardinal games at Freedom Hall...some really exciting games (my favorite was watching the Cards win against a highly raked Kentucky team, this is when Pitino was the UK coach and boy he was fired up in the post game show.)

I hope to see the Cards play in the Downtown Arena...maybe make some new memories there. But looking back at good ole Freedom Hall my favorite memory has to be going with dad for the first time. Thanks dad...I think you would like our UL basement!

Go Cards!

Brian Reagan

This guy is one of the best in my book. We laughed so hard last night that I was in tears! Enjoy this clip:

Bryan's Birthday Weekend!

Our son Bryan will officially turn 3 1/2 this weekend...he'll be 14 in people years! Yep, his birthday is on Leap Day and it's really hard to believe that he will be 14.

The time has flown by...I hope that I've been able to savor all moments with him. He's turning into a young man...voice is changing, we are trying to give him more responsibility, he's even starting to take me down when we wrestle!

Plans for the celebration?? Going to Louisville sometime on Saturday, we're staying with mom for the night. Dinner will be at Hard Rock Cafe downtown Louisville...after dinner we are going to the Brown Theater to see Brian Reagan. Brian Reagan is a really great comedian who literally makes me laugh just by looking at him. He's been a favorite of ours for we all are pretty stoked about the night.

Bryan, I love you...I love doing our "Dad and Lad" times together...I love playing video games with you, wrestling, playing name it, I love our time together. The most important thing that I pray over you for is that you would be a Godly young man who lives his life as a testimony to God...I pray that you see that in your dad, that is what I'm striving for each and every day! You are my #1 son (and your response to that is always, "Dad...I'm your only son!") I love you!

Federal Adoption Tax Credit

Been trudging through our tax returns over the past week or so. A GREAT bonus for us will be the federal adoption tax credit. This has made adoptions affordable for so many people. BUT...the tax credit is set to expire in December 2010 unless Congress votes to continue it.

The idea is to see this tax credit become a permanent deal.

What can YOU do???

Email or call your senators and congressmen:

Write your U.S. Representative
Write your U.S. Senator

It only takes a few minutes to do AND prayerfully it will allow families to continue to help make adoption a little easier financially.

You blew're done!

I've really enjoyed watching the Olympics the past couple of days...there's something exciting when you hear that bass thumping Olympic theme, know what I'm talking about? Bom, Bom, Bom, Bom...da, da, dadadadum...

I'm a fan of the short track, skiing and snowboarding...maybe even a little curling! I enjoy some more than others! But Jeff what about ice skating? hmmmmm...I enjoyed watching the whole Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan fiasco! Does that count?

I did notice something the other night when Holly and I were watching the men's ice skating...notice I was watching with my wife. One of the skaters was in the middle of their routine and took a spill. Immediately commentators started with "Well, he's finished!" "His dreams have come to an end!" "It will be four more years of waiting!" Dang, thanks for the encouragement!

It struck me though...when skaters make one mistake, knowing that the mistake probably cost them a do they go on? It looks like most of them just suck it up and move on, as if nothing happened. But I'm sure that has to be lingering in their mind, "All that practice and I fell...what if I fall again." I think that takes a great deal of courage to continue even after one complete the routine with integrity.

*I love what 1 John 1:9 says...
*I'm glad when we make a mistakes that God doesn't say "You blew're done!"
*And even when we do blow it...God gives us great courage and strength to continue on...but we have to receive that forgiveness and not waller in the mud.
*Enjoy the rest the Olympics!

Mosaic Ministry

Our church started a new ministry back in August...more like revamped a current ministry. We live in a college town (Eastern Kentucky University) which means there are 13,000+ students on our backyard.

So we started a new class/ministry called Mosaic. It sounds trendy but I think it does justice describing us. Mosaic is a ministry for those who are 18-29 year olds. I know that's a wide range, but it seems to be working, granted our group is made up of mainly college students.

Me and my friend Wayne are tag teaming this class...I teach and he heads up the in/out reach.

I love teaching...more than that I love teaching this group. I've grown and learned a great deal from them, but I think that's the way it always works.

There are plenty more to reach...I think a college campus is one of the greatest mission fields on the planet. Come join the Mosaic!

Stoked about some Olympics

I love the Winter Olympics...right down to the curling! This Friday is the opening ceremonies...Holly and I are planning on watching them together. We even have some friends who are missionaries in Vancouver and they'll be working the games.

What's your favorite event??

I wonder...

if Captain Phil Harris had ever confessed Jesus as Lord of his life. I've been a fan of the Deadliest Catch every since it started. I'm not sure what is so intriguing about a documentary of men fishing for crab on the Bering Sea...but dang, it's such a cool show.

I like most of the ships and their captains/crews:
-Sig Hansen and the Northwestern
-Johnathan Hillstrand and the Time Bandit

and of course
-Phil Harris and the CorneliaMaria

Phil is survived by his two sons Jake and Josh who were deckhands on the boat. He was a pretty gruff man who smoked like a chimney and cursed like a...captain of a boat?

When I heard this news of him dying from a stroke...the first thing a thought about was his eternal home. Did anyone ever tell him about Jesus? The gospel story? About what Jesus did for him on the cross?

I just wonder.

Edge Outreach

Just wanted to give a little spotlight to one of the most practical and impacting ministries that I've seen in a long time. Edge Outreach.

Let me tell you briefly why I'm spotlighting them...
After we brought Ellie home we found out that she had five parasites living inside her little body. Why the parasites, what caused them?? Bad water.

We began praying and looking for ways to do something about bad water. We have a good friend who serves on the board of directors with Edge Outreach, we talked with him and were very the point we said, "We're on can we serve?"

Edge Outreach is all about providing clean water to countries, communities and towns where there is need. And how they do this is so biblical. Check out 2 Kings 2:19-22.

They already have a presence in Haiti doing what they do best...providing clean water!

Holly and I went for training in the areas of Health/Hygiene a few weekends ago. This area is where Holly is most passionate about and will continue. I am wanting to learn more about training others with the water purifiers whether on the field somewhere in the world or at the Edge's headquarters in Louisville.

Exciting too can be a part of a basic need that should be so simple...water!!
