We’re a week into the Church year now – it’s the Second Sunday of Advent – and I’m back here at BreadAlive.
Almost three years ago, I made the conscious choice to move the entire blog over to our family website. After blogging off and on on various domains, in various formats since 1996, plus a stint of a year or so when “BreadAlive” was intended to be a daily reflection delivered simply via email, I’ve decided it’s time to resurrect this space as a blog about my life as a Catholic husband and dad, and remote manager of a team of consultants for a major corporation.
That last part is the biggest life change for me that’s driving this effort. It’s been about 7 months ago since I moved from a role as a senior consultant to a role as a manager of consultants – a “people manager.” The more I’ve settled into the role, traveled to spend time with my team, taken management and leadership trainings – the more I’ve started to realize that I have some of my own story that might be valuable to share with others.
My priorities in my life will be reflected here, and everything expressed here is my own opinion, not that of others, or of my employer. In order, those priorities are: My God and my Catholic faith, my wife, my children, my family, my friends.
Some of what I’ll share here will be stories of funny or serious happenings around our home, or reflections on being a husband and father. Others will be ruminations on leading and managing people. I hope you’ll find some nuggets in some of it.
So here we go – I’m back, and we’ll see how this goes…
