Episode 56: Justin Earley, The Common Rule Book Discussion

The Common Rule: Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction with Justin Whitmel Earley

In 2021, Justin Earley joined the Women & Work team for a live disucssion about his book The Common Rule: Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction.

Justin Earley provides concrete, doable practices, such as a daily hour of phoneless presence or a weekly conversation with a friend. These habits are “common” not only because they are ordinary, but also because they can be practiced in community. They have been lived out by people across all walks of life―businesspeople, professionals, parents, students, retirees―who have discovered new hope and purpose.

In this Q&A, Courtney Moore, founder and president of Women & Work, and Courtney Powell, Ministry Content Director covered topics with Justin such as:

  • His transition from full-time missionary to lawyer
  • Habits as Formation
  • A Theology of Work
  • How our Daily Habits Redeem Our Work and Reorient our Minds
  • The Freedom of Daily Habits
  • Rhythms of Rest
  • Boundaries and Limitations in our Work
  • Habit and Heart Formation in the Home
