“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 […]
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, […]
I have a confession. I didn’t think I would have a word for my 2023 year. I thought that I would reuse the word I had last year, “space” because I for sure had not lived into that last year as well as I had imagined. So I buckled in for pursuing more space again […]
Before we get to our 2023 New Years Resolutions recipe for “success”, let’s address the moment. Christmas has just ended and we’re in that awkward in-between stage of waiting for the new year to start. That moment of waiting for January 1st so we can hit start on all our rhythms and goals and magically […]
Dear kindred friend, I don’t know about you, but I can feel the hustle and hurriedness of the 2022 holiday season quickly approaching, can you?

All throughout my twenties, I lived and worked with an aspiration to enter my thirties with deep self confidence, a newly thriving career, a settled mental and physical balance of work-life-family-etc., a family, an […]
August 2022 Reflection Question: Where have you seen beauty this year? In yourself, around you, in the people around you, in the world? Beauty in the world of chaos feels impossible, doesn’t it? When every piece of news feels heavy, overwhelming, dark, and ugly, it can feel like there’s no room for beauty. Or even […]
I had a completely different post written for June’s 2022 reflection question, but as I was writing, it felt like it needed more time then I was going to be able to give. So I pivoted. The other post will be shared, but in the meantime, let’s chat about how we’re feeling being halfway through […]
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.
