Your Family is a Blessing So Stop StressingOut

My Stories and Interviews

I have a podcast called Blessing Not Stressing that has new releases as I feel the need to cover a topic.  This usually includes lessons I have learned. a joke, and a blessing of the day.   The lessons may be a cautionary tale or something I have learned from parents that may not have occurred to you.  The blessing is because I like to include a silver lining that can come out of the more trying situations we face and add a touch of humor to the heavier topics.

Check it out on iTunes or Google.

I also post articles periodically on this blog site.  Then I send out updates to a Facebook page and provide multiple updates daily on Twitter (@thebroadhead).

A Geek

In case you are a visitor and you don’t know me yet, allow me to introduce myself.  I’m Rob and I have almost twenty-five years of experience in the IT world.  That experience is as a developer, architect, manager, and designer.  It includes experience with that has used dozens of coding languages.  I have built small and large applications over the years.  Furthermore, I enjoy technology as a user and a creator.  I think that plants me firmly in the “geek” category.

A Dad

I must also introduce my other role as a father of five children.  The load has shrunk as the kids grew up and headed to college, but I still get involved enough to continue to learn how to be a better parent.  It is truly a never-ending task.  That alone gives me more experience with children than most people would want.  However, I must be a glutton for punishment.  I also spent about a decade coaching youth hockey.  Before that, about two decades in youth soccer as a coach, official, and trainer of officials.  That adds up to a lot of interaction with children in the middle school to college age range from a wide variety of backgrounds.

A Wanna-be Jock

My athletic side requires me to introduce my sports background as well.  I have given up soccer for the sport of hockey even though soccer was my sport through most of my life.  Sprinkled among that time I spent a couple of decades playing handball as well.  I guess I had to balance that footwork from soccer with the upper body workout of handball.

Hockey is currently my primary (and almost only) sport.  Thus, I can be found on the ice as a player a couple of nights a week.  That doesn’t include the nights I am in the stands watching the kids play or working on some ballroom dancing moves.  I don’t coach anymore officially, I just yell at the referees like everyone else.  🙂

If my posts seem a little random, I apologize.  This is a medium I find excellent for recording and sharing thoughts and sometimes that leads to a pattern that resembles a stream of consciousness.  If you want to keep to a topic check out the categories menu.  Complaints and suggestions can be posted on articles and I will address them where I can.  Thanks for stopping by!
