Kathryn the Grape is here to help!

Hello and welcome! My name is Kathryn Cloward, otherwise known as “Kathryn the Grape.” My son was only two years old when I started down this path of simplifying life lessons learned while growing through life’s changes. Landon is 12 now and he’s grown up learning with me. We’ve learned and grown together. My hope is to help you and your loves learn and grow together, too.
