Meet the Kindred Co. Team

You just found your tribe.

Hey there, homeschool mama!

We are so happy you’re here.

We created Kindred Collective because we know how important it is to have a homeschool tribe and we believe that it is possible to find authentic connection online.

How do we know this to be true?

We lived it! We are four homeschool mamas, bloggers, podcasters, and kindred spirits. We connected online and built a friendship long before we ever met in person.

We believe that authentic connection should be meaningful, supportive, and honest so it is our goal to create a community that embodies the same ones we value in our own friendships.

The Kindred Collective is the tribe we always wished we’d had and the one we are excited to be a part of going forward. We want you to find your kindred spirits here!

Don’t Think You can find real friends online?

Think again! Cait, Kara, Mary and Alicia connected through Voxer, a basic walkie-talkie, voice recording app. Their connection began through their various business endeavors; podcasts, blogs, projects, and more—and finally they formed a Voxer group to communicate about their business ideas more easily.

Somewhere along the way, the group of “Blogging Friends,” as their Voxer group is named, began to become more as they started to share so much more than ideas about work.

These four friends connected over social media, and over time, their friendship has grown to be deep and gratifying. They share their daily struggles and their daily wins. They’ve shared stories through both tears of grief and tears of joy.

These four friends homeschool differently. They come from different backgrounds and time zones. But they chose to peel away the fluff and get down to the heart of things—all through an app on their phones.

So yes, sister, you can find real, true, deep relationships through the world wide web—and it’s our goal to help you find your kindred spirits.

This is like the homeschool Avengers movie- when all my heroes get together!
