A Meatsmith Harvest

Apr 17, 2020

This is Part 1 of a two-part series.

In these episodes, Brandon and Lauren respond to the unexpected and rapid changes that the Coronavirus has thrust upon families across the world, and the way that they operate on a daily basis. 

As a couple that has the benefit of having both worked from home and home-educated their children for several years now, Brandon and Lauren offer their "two cents," providing encouragement and advice and reminding us that, as parents, we have always had the role of being the primary educators of our children. 

They share the many benefits of implementing an ordered rhythm to your family's day -- one that provides balanced (but flexible) time for meals, chores, school work, quiet time, outdoor activity, and breaks; as well as the ability to slow down to "smell the roses" along the way.   

They hope this episode will be helpful to you in this time of unique challenges and transition.  You've got what it takes. You are equipped to take on this new role!
