Summer can be chaotic for work-at-home moms. This time of year calls for a big shift in the daily routine, and it can be hard to find a balance between family time and work commitments. This episode will help you create some breathing room through new rhythms and routines for you and your family.

This episode starts our new series about creating some breathing room through intentional rhythms. For adults, having routines & rhythms helps us feel more organized, reduces stress, and allows us to find time for the activities we enjoy. For kids, daily rhythms help them feel safe, develop life skills they need, and build healthy habits.

So for those of us who are working from home this summer with kids around 24/7, I’ve put together a guide of summer survival tips related to these intentional rhythms that can help make the days a bit more… enjoyable? Bearable? Whatever your goal is, this episode should help!

J. Brooks Coffee Roasters - Gallant blend

This month of the “How’s All That Working for Ya?” podcast is sponsored by J. Brooks Coffee Roasters in Memphis, TN. As we celebrate the fathers and father figures in our lives this month, I’d like to celebrate my dad by sharing one of his favorite blends from J. Brooks Coffee. Gallant is a dark roast single-origin Guatemala bean from Acatenango. It has a robust and deep body, bursting with chocolatey notes of cocoa. The blend of boldness and cocoa in Gallant reminds us of the balance of a man of God - bold and fearless, gentle and sweet. To order this signature blend for yourself and learn more about J. Brooks Coffee, visit
