Dear kindred friend, Usually at the end of a month, I’ll write a blog post sharing my own thoughts to the current planner’s end of the month reflection question. This month, I’ll still be answering the January 2022 reflection question, but differently. This post will have an update on what happened and why our short […]

While the year was difficult, I would dare 2020 and COVID and anything else to try and change the spirit of the holiday season.

And also, I want to do it well and with intention, so whatever I do prepares me better for the upcoming season and creates a rhythm that is replicable for next year. After a several closet clean fails (think sitting on the floor in a mess of clothes and pulling at my hair in frustration), this is what I’ve come up with as spring cleaning with intention:
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.
