Mamas, we hope your Mother’s Day was filled with love, rest, and the sweet gifts and gratitude you hopefully received from your children on this day. We have a few surprises to share with you, and hope you’ll be as excited about them as our team is.
Our team is ecstatic to announce that our Kindred Mom Podcast is launching in a few days (May 16) *Edit: NOW AVAILABLE!* The first episodes are done and just waiting for iTunes to approve/list them for access through your favorite podcast app, so once the iTunes elves have worked their magic, you should be able to find them. The podcast is a companion to the Kindred Mom blog, and is an interview-style podcast that dives a little deeper into the topics we cover here on the blog. We hope that as soon as it becomes available, you’ll go subscribe, share with friends, and more than anything, we hope this is another great way to bring you encouragement in the midst of your busy mama life. We have intentionally kept episodes to roughly a half hour for easy-listening, and will feature many of the mamas who share their essays here on the blog.
The heart of our mission at Kindred Mom involves connecting mamas together because we believe sharing our stories with each other—online and in real life—is an essential part of flourishing in motherhood.
We want to encourage you to think about how you might intentionally make space in your schedule to connect with other moms face-to-face this summer. To help facilitate this, we’re inviting you to begin your own Summer Connection Group. You can read a little bit more about what we have in mind here.
Will you join us in the vision to bring moms together?
We’re keeping the exact details a surprise, but each of the bundles have beautiful and practical hostessing helps from Magnolia Market and Amazon that will help the mamas who win them get a Summer Connection Group started in style and help spread the mission of Kindred Mom by intentionally getting moms together.
One giveaway is happening on Instagram (@kindred_mom) beginning on May 17th, and the Hospitality Bundle we’re giving away there is geared toward mamas who might host a backyard Moms & Kids Coffee Hour style connection group. To enter, go to our Instagram feed and look for the official giveaway graphic and follow the (easy) steps to enter.
The other giveaway will go to one of our email subscribers, and this Hospitality Bundle is geared toward mamas who might host an evening Dessert & Conversation Night for mamas without kids. To enter, all you need to do is subscribe to our email list before May 24th when we randomly choose a winner from the list!
That concludes our Mother’s Day surprises! We are honored to journey with all of you courageous, committed, inspiring, resilient, persevering mothers. Thanks for all you do!
The Kindred Mom Team
