The most successful blog. Ever.

Posted on 08/21/12 by Jeff

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Panama with my wife and oldest daughter, Lucy, along with a team of about 130 people from around the country, to put on a conference for teenaged girls. The culture in Panama is pretty rough for girls – neglect and abuse is the norm for so many. […]

An Afternoon with Trucker Mike and Jodi

Posted on 07/18/12 by Jeff

    It’s Wednesday morning, and this is what I’m doing. At times when I’m uncertain about my life and our choice to be self-employed, I think of mornings like this. The only thing on the agenda right now is, ‘find bumble bee costume and do ‘Butt Smashes’ on the trampoline’. Check. Also, this morning, […]

Why Kids Rock

Posted on 06/27/12 by Jeff

I used to blog. Then I stopped. Now I’m trying to start again. I’m not sure why I stopped. I may have run out of ideas. It may have been a choice on my part to avoid being a part of the bloggification of America. I think the main culprit is that throughout 2011, I […]

A Non-Hallmark Valentines Day Update

Posted on 02/14/12 by Jeff

Happy Valentines Day. I’m reminiscing to some of my past valentines days. I remember one when Kristie and I were out to dinner with the kids and they all got sick. Like “sick and puking all over the restaurant – sick”. Sick. That one is not easily forgettable, as much as I’d like to forget […]

A Holiday Season Challenge

Posted on 11/09/11 by Jeff

The Holiday Season is upon us. It’s the season of giving, family and the warmth of the fire. Some people are already beginning to play Christmas Music which means it’s also the season of some really really bad Christmas songs. I’ve written about this before, but there are some really bad, annoying songs that come […]

The Great American Songbook

Posted on 08/25/11 by Jeff

My wife Kristie ordered “The Great American Songbook” recently. She sings with a big band and bought this book as a way to brush up on all the old ‘standards’. Just to be clear for those of you in the ‘younger generation’, the ‘standards’ are songs by Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Sinatra etc, and […]

There’s no fruit without the rain

Posted on 05/18/11 by Jeff

It’s been a wonderful stretch of 4 sunny days in a row. FOUR! I don’t complain about the weather much. Complaining about the weather seems to be a pretty silly endeavor because you can’t do anything about it. If you don’t like your shirt, you can go get a new one. If you don’t like […]

A Bad Case of the Mondays

Posted on 03/16/11 by Jeff

I was feeling a pretty down Sunday night.  I wasn’t sure why, but I had a growing discontent towards this season of life the Kerrs are in.  Part of it was that I was just crabby.  But truth be told, I was a bit miffed at the pace that God was unveiling his ‘next steps’ […]

Either He is God, or He’s not.

Posted on 03/08/11 by Jeff

I’m in the airport, returning home from a very bitter, very sweet trip home to Toronto.   The reason for the trip was to attend the funeral service for my cousin’s husband Robbie Hall.  Robbie was tragically killed in a construction accident in Zambia.  Robbie and Kate (my cousin) and their three kids had been […]

Super Bowl Music Review

Posted on 02/07/11 by Jeff

Hi there.  This is my review of last night’s super bowl broadcast.  This will be part defense of Christina Aguilerra, part bashing of sound man, part Black Eye Peas ‘what the wha??”.  This will not have anything to do with football or television commercials. Except to say that the Packers looked great.  I like that […]
