The Kindred & Co. blog is here for you - resources & rhythms to practice being and doing; stories from us & the community in our pursuit of living as human beings; business behind the scenes (BTS) announcements & celebrations.
Happy 2024 and Happy New Years! Well, almost. Before we look at 2024, we need to take our final looks at 2023. It’s tempting to brush off a past year and move on to something new and fresh. New and fresh often brings with it new hope. Something we tend to all itch for come […]
“What are you thankful for this year?” A question most of us will be asked sometime this Thanksgiving or holiday season. Something most of us will answer simply, basically or funnily. I mean, is there a more quintessential Thanksgiving dinner question? But if it’s not for the holiday table social pressure or for the aesthetics […]
What does gifting well and good in the 2023 holiday season look like? Or another way to ask is: how do I gift in such a way that does good for both the loved ones I’m shopping for and good for the planet? Good for loved ones meaning that the gifts I’m buying are thoughtful […]
This will be the four rendition of the Kindred Planner and boy have things changed since the early versions. The early versions had perfect binding, which made them look more book like, but did not lay flat.

How is it September 1st already? When I turned the pages of my planner to fill in September, I was faced with the “check-in” page of August. I was faced with the invitation to pause and reflect. Not gonna lie, I was very tempted to skip over the invitation to pause and reflect. My mind […]
Back in college, a friend shared a phrase her mom liked to say: you are a human being not a human doing. The impact of hearing that was like getting a brain freeze – stopping me in my thoughts then and now (thankfully unlike a brain freeze does). As someone who has always struggled with […]
We’ve got a big announcement for you, and it’s right in the title itself. From the beginning of the existence of the planner and this business, it was (and has always been) about one thing: human being not human doing. Helping individuals know that they are worthy. Period, as is, nothing more to be seen […]
I don’t know when the “pick a word for the year” trend started, but it seemed kind of a silly one to me. How could someone possibly pick a word and know that it would be transformative and critical to their year? A year that has barely begun. Today I sit here swallowing my pride, […]
At the end of every month we write a reflection blog post that correlates with the reflection questions in the Kindred Planner.
Consider this your invitation to reflect along with us, coffee (or tea) in one hand and Kindred Planner (or journal) in the other.
Your worth, who you are and who you are becoming are so important to the heart of Kindred & Co. that we put together a series of blog posts to help you practice being.
Sweet like honey are the encouraging stories you'll find here.
Read the stories from our community gathered here! Some stories of K&Co. products, yes, but more important, stories of how they are living as human beings, finding their identity first and foremost in their inherent worth.
From the moments that have shaped Kindred & Co. to the big dreams seen fulfilled to the best roundup of YOUR kindred stories, here are our favorites posts.
