Our fall favorites are here! 🍂

So guys, 

Check this out. There’s a couple really cool new apps out that are going to greatly benefit writers and basically, all women in general. 

The first one is called Writeright. Catchy, huh? Well it’s a lot more than just a cool name. When you first open up the app on your phone, it has an ingenious and easy to read instruction manual to flip through. Usually I skip reading these bad boys, but this one was so user friendly, that I actually enjoyed swiping through. (Ha! Does that make me a nerd?) Anyway, after all the “how-to’s,” you get to your home page. At this point, you can start writing. It is basically set up like your notes section on your i-phone. Same format. However, with this app you have access to a dictionary and thesaurus right in the app. So, as you type, you can highlight certain words and click the “S” button and it will pull up all the synonyms available. Or, wait for this – it’s even cooler – you can highlight a whole phrase and push a little “wheel-looking” button and it will pull up an entirely different way to word or structure the sentence using its internal dictionary and thesaurus. It’s like a writers dream land! No more staring at the screen because a sentence, “just doesn’t feel right.” You can instantly change it.

Genius stuff, people. Genius stuff.

After you have written to your hearts content, you have numerous options of what you’d like to do next with your beautiful words. You can: copy them (to paste somewhere else), send by email, print document (if your printer is hooked to your phone or has a wifi connection), open in your notes, twitter, facebook, messanger, etc. Or (I’m not even done yet, guys) you can save your thoughts to the (all knowing, all present) Cloud, to a saved documents folder within the app, your Dropbox (if you use that), or you can trash it at this point if you decide you wanna start all over. The options are endless. 


The next app I want to tell you about is called Tag Journal. This app is a game changer for all the women out there. Who out there likes to makes lists? To organize notes, photos, videos, etc?

*every women raises hand* 

I do too. I LOVE lists. And I love knowing exactly where everything is. This app makes my OCD heart happy. Here’s what it does…

You open it and it goes through a quick and simple video of how it works. Who doesn’t love video guides? They’re adorable. 

Then you get to your homepage and you see the promise land. (Not even exaggerating, guys!) The homepage has icons across the top that are: camera, video, microphone, quick notes (my lists! YAY) and documents (your writings!). Each of these icons are connected to your actual phone apps that you already have. So you click on the video button and all your videos show up or your camera shows up in video mode. (You following me?) 


Under all the icons is where the organizing comes in. You can click on the “notes” column and BOOM, all your notes ever written, pop up. You can click on the recordings column and BOOM, same thing. There’s all your recordings. Yes, you could do all this without the app. But with the app, all of these handy tools we use to remember events and capture moments are put together, so there is no opening and closing apps, trying to remember where one is, using up all your battery life. (Can I get an amen from all the i-phone users out there?!) 

Another great thing about this app that makes it so unique, is the calendar aspect. This app has its own built in calendar, so you can click on it, pick a day, and view all the notes, photos, videos, etc from that specific day! How great is that?! Organization at its finest, friends.

Tag Journal reminds me of a giant, more accessible, less bulky scrap book of your entire life. And who doesn’t want one of those? 

So friends, go & check out these cool new apps! I’m certainly excited to start using mine! 

Here’s all their social links, too.





*Note. Yep! This was a sponsored post. But all of the opinions are 100% mine and true.

Katherine Kring

My name is Katherine Kring, although most people call me Kaile. You can blame my parents for the confusing two name situation. I was born in Lincoln, NE and raised in Minden, a small farming community in central Nebraska. I have adorably, in love parents and two siblings, one older brother and one younger sister. Growing up it was apparent that I was kind of the odd man out. Both of my siblings are very blonde, athletic and competitive...and then there's me. I enjoy singing, theater, speech, writing, and reading. And unfortunately, do not have blonde hair. After high school, I ventured off to the big city of Omaha, NE where my, then boyfriend, was stationed with the Airforce (He is now my Airforce husband and I have since followed him to Ohio.) I attended Nebraska Methodist College of Nursing and Allied Health in Omaha and pursued a career in Respiratory Care. I now get to have the initials RRT after my name because I am officially a Registered Respiratory Therapist. My hubby and I live in Ohio with our two crazy, hyper dogs. We love to binge watch netflix, go antiquing, and travel. I also love my Lord, Jesus Christ and enjoy attending our church and reading my bible.

One day you’re living your best life, writing articles about how perfect your marriage is, and the next, BOOM, life as you know it completely changes. I was blindsided by information that my husband had been lying to me for three years about certain aspects of our lives. I felt like I had been hit in the gut by the biggest rock you could imagine. What has followed has been a snowball of events and new information that has changed the course of my and my kids’ lives. So what do you do when your perfect explodes? This is one...

Find Your Person, She’s Worth It

In: Friendship, Living

Have you found her? I’m talking about the person you can call your best friend. The girl who will give up sleep to take your phone call. The one who will stand outside your hospital window during COVID with a sign because she can’t be inside, cheering you on. That person who will defend you when need to be and be your voice of reason when you seem to have lost your way a bit. I’m one of the fortunate ones who has found her. For us, it all started when we were 12 years old. Our families lived next to...

Dear Husband, In This Busy Season

Busy family in the kitchen, man walking into the door holding coffee

Dear husband,  I know this is a busy season for you. I see how hard you’re working. And I know you come home exhausted every night. I know you’d be here earlier—and more often—if you could. But you can’t. Because this is your busy season.  And there are a few things I need you to know.  This is hard for me too. Even on normal days, I’m on call 24/7 for the kids, but now, I don’t have you at home as backup. The needing never stops, and I no longer have you to share it with. I can’t say,...

The Greatest Gift We Can Give Someone Is to Include Them

In: Friendship, Living, Motherhood
Female friends laughing together outside

The greatest gift we can give someone is to include them. Never have I felt more isolated and excluded than I did as a new mom. With two babies born a year apart, socializing was impossible. I couldn’t hold a conversation with my kids in tow. And they were always in tow. In those early years of motherhood, something like a hair appointment meant more than just a cut and color. It was an opportunity for uninterrupted, adult conversation. After a couple of years of baby talk and mom buns, I was intensely in need of all three. I booked...

A Friend Turning on You Can Hurt More than a Breakup

In: Friendship, Living
Sad woman with head in hands

I was betrayed badly recently by a friend, the kind of betrayal that leaves a deep mark. The one that makes you question the trust you put in people. How close you let your soul get to theirs. Months later, my brain still is trying to dissect how someone could do that. A friend turning on you can hurt worse than a bad breakup. How could I have been such a fool and not see their true colors? Et tu Brute? repeated in my head. It has not happened in years. Since high school if I am being honest. But...

Your Mental Health Is Worth Fighting For

In: Living
Black-and-white drawing of woman looking into night sky

Anxiety. Depression. PTSD. Bipolar disorder. The list of mental health disorders is quite long. And every disorder has its own challenges to overcome. There’s always been a stigma on mental health, or actually the opposite of health: illness.  When someone has a physical ailment, let’s say a cough that lingers, going to the doctor is the most common thing to do. After all, we want to be cured. However, when it comes to the ailments within—the unseen ailments of our soul—people often hesitate to reach out. They’re afraid to be labeled. And many continue to struggle in silence. But a...

This Is Perimenopause

For the past few months, I’ve felt like the woman who bled for 12 years, healed by touching the hem of Jesus’ robe. I’m bleeding, but I can’t find a robe to touch. I’ve prayed, I’ve worried, I’ve wondered. But the cause of my bleeding isn’t an ailment to cure, it’s a part of life to live. At 34, I’ve entered perimenopause. The surprise at discovering that menopause looms far closer than I expected has faded. What blooms now is both gratitude for the children I’ve already born and a strange grief that my youth is thinning out and drying...

Dad Left a Legacy in Fried Green Tomatoes

In: Grief, Living

When I was growing up, my dad’s Kentucky roots were very evident in our kitchen, especially the summertime meals he prepared. I can still see him at the stove preparing those Southern specialties: a mess of green beans and ham, corn fried in a skillet, fried okra, hot stuff (a mixture of tomatoes, onion, and hot peppers), fried round steak and gravy, and fried green tomatoes. While preparing the dishes, he would often cut the end of a hot pepper and coax us to stick our tongues on the end. “It’s not that hot.” It always was, and we fell...

Teenagers with backpacks stand by brick wall

I’m a high school counselor and truthfully, one of my favorite students to work with are my seniors. I love all of my students but there is something uniquely special about these teenagers that are on the brink of adulthood.  They are full of grand plans, big ideas, and excitement for life.  They also tend to be a little less argumentative, which is a nice plus.  During senior year, they are all focused on one thing: graduation and getting out of this place. We are a small town and most of these students have been here all their lives. They...
