I first heard this term many years ago watching the PBS version of "Anne of Green Gables".
To me a kindred spirit is someone who is like-minded. Someone of similar values and interests. Someone who's words or creativity touches my heart.
There are tons of people out there who have similar interests to me but not all of them are kindred spirits. Those are the people that I look to for encouragement and support. Those are the people that I hope to encourage and support in turn.
Instagram and Facebook can be a platform for this but it can also be the opposite. Sometimes people feel safe on the other side of that screen to vent hurt and anger.
There is too much pain and anger out there! Let us build one another up and encourage one another!
