A note from Kathryn the Grape...
Hello and welcome! My name is Kathryn Cloward. When I was 11 years old, my softball coach nicknamed me "Kathryn the Grape" because I wore purple all of the time. Decades later, I was inspired to create this series to provide people of all ages with tools of love.
My purpose is simple. I desire to help people feel good about themselves and others. I know from personal experience, that's an inside job. We ripple love from the inside out. My stories and songs help people love themselves and others, naturally and unconditionally.
My son is my greatest inspiration. Being Landon's mom has helped me reconnect with the joyfully imaginative little girl I once was, and always have been. I just needed to remember who I am. Positive affirmations helped me uncover my natural vibrancy to shine my colorful light of love and that's why I am purposeful about sharing positive affirmations in my books, songs and videos. My desire is to help everyone shine, children and adults alike.
