Kindred Mom is a gracious online community dedicated to helping moms flourish in motherhood. We believe motherhood is a sacred and beautiful journey of discovery and we are committed to holding space for moms who are looking for connection, guidance, encouragement, and truth about the incredible role of a mother.
Kindred Mom is a collaborative blog, featuring essays about authentic mothering experiences from a variety of women, and we seek to provide encouragement and resources to help moms feel less alone in their struggle to nurture themselves and their families. Whether you are a new mom, an experienced mom, an adoptive mom, a step-mom, or any other kind of mom, we welcome you here and invite you to participate in this supportive community.
Check out the the essays we’ve featured on the blog, listen to the Kindred Mom podcast, and please subscribe (below) to our email list to stay in-the-know about what is going on! We promise to end you only valuable, worthwhile resources, will never share your information, and we’ll send you an invitation to join the private group for our community where you can connect with other amazing moms, the writers podcast guests who contribute to our community, and our Kindred Mom Vision Team.
