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.
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. The next 2020 planner version didn’t have a guide explaining some of the uniquely Kindred Planner pieces. Which […]
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, […]
Let’s get right to it: it’s the end of June, we are halfway through 2023, how are you feeling? Energized? Reluctant? Hopeful? Overwhelmed? All the emotions on the wheel of emotions (link)? Before I get into the tea of how this small business owner is feeling, let’s think through why checking in is even that […]
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 […]
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.
