4 podcasts you should subscribe to right now (in fiction)
As most of you know, I am an avid podcast listener. It is fair to say I consume more podcasts than I do television, movies, and music combined. That being said, I hoped that my "podcast" post would be nice and concise. Yet it turns out I’m too passionate about such a large variety of work that I could not limit my favorite podcasts to just one article. So, to make things easy, I’ve broken up my favorites by genre for a miniature blog series. This week, fictional audio tales.
Do ya'll have any favorite podcasts? Let me know in the comments.

Life is comprised of small, overlooked pleasures. We spend most hours of our day scurrying from one event to the next. Even when we are still, our minds race incessantly.

“Empowerment” is a strong word with a heavy burden. It carries years of history in its syllables, from feminism to theology to the Black Power movement to Gandhism. How am I supposed to wrangle a large concept and form it in to a simple explanation of 1000 words or less? I can't. Instead, I am going to give you the best possible introduction I can muster—a heartfelt definition.
It has been a minute since I last did a Sunday Find. In fact, you may have noticed a bit of silence on the blog as of late--reasoning for that to come. In the meantime, I figured I'd pop back on the blog to offer some light reading/links to start your week off with. Enjoy!
Instead of offering your thoughts and prayers, here are few ways you can help the victims' families/friends and survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Hello! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Here are some links help you to have an equally lovely start to the new week. As per usual, I've some links from around the internet to great podcast episodes, articles, art, and more. This week, I have sprinkled in a few Valentine's/Galentine's day gift ideas for your loved ones, as well. Cheers!
I forget about the strength, joy, challenges, and power of parenthood all the time. What kind of feminist am I if I ignore a crucial side of reproductive justice–the right to have and raise children!
I was stupefied by my ignorance. Of course I wanted to share a piece from a mother and/or about motherhood! One woman came to mind: Annabelle Fern. Fern a talented writer, who documents her life and motherhood on her blog, has allowed me to share one of her writings, "Song of the Sea," with you all. I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I do.
You asked for it so here it is: a bujo plan with me! The following is my planner set-up for the month of February. Below I break down my monthly reflection pages, calendar, and share a time lapse video of the entire process. Check it out.
If you're like me, you're either not watching the Super Bowl or trying everything in your power to ignore the game unfolding before you. Lucky for you, I have some links to encourage your football aversion. Below is a healthy dose of distraction in the from of articles, podcasts, and art
If you have been in tune with The Keen Kind (previously named "With Grace") for the past year you may recall my 24 Before 25 post. Beginning on the day of my 24th birthday, I sought to complete 24 (later turned 25) goals before I turned the big two-five.
So now it is time for the final, one year check in. And it is safe to say...
I straight up failed.
You may recall my post from November in which I described surprising things I learned about living with my partner. That post was a bit one-sided, so he was kind enough to whip up his own post on our new living arrangement. I am pleased to offer you his point of view below.
