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.
So keep this in mind friend: Whether you’re an avid planner or just starting out, it doesn’t have to be done perfectly or look perfect. Creating a rhythm to using your planner and organizing one takes time to develop, it won’t magically happen when a new year rolls around (sadly), or even just because we want it to. It’ll take some work, discipline, time, and commitment, and grace. Over at Kindred & Co., we might just call all that “intentionality.”
Quiz time: Do you know what the Kindred & Co. brand words are? Do you know why we picked those words?
Given this month is the 6 month celebration of Kindred & Co., we’re taking a deeper look at what all the words truly mean for us.
I love the word “kindred” and using it in phrases like “be kindred,” “kindred friend,” and “live everyday kindred” (our tagline), even though its dictionary definition would probably disagree with the expanse of how I’m choosing to use it. The dictionary definition is pretty simple and straightforward, something along the lines of “being related to or kin to,” hence the kin-dred, implying family or relative connections of some kind.
“Well, I was on your website looking at a planner for my daughter when I noticed that your mission and values about intentionality, simplicity, and ‘be’ fall right in line with the upcoming theme of IF:Gathering 2020. So I reached out to the founder and asked about the possibility of Kindred & Co being a vendor at the upcoming gathering.”
Our hope at Kindred & Co is the company and products wouldn’t just be for you, yourself, and you. But actually be a foundation from which you could connect with others in the Kindred & Co community, learn from one another’s experiences, encourage the growth in one another, celebrate the victories, and inspire and motivate each other.
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.
