We grow in grace naturally, not artificially. Mimicking is the counterfeit of imitation and produces the ‘pi’ person, one who tries his best to be what he is not. When you are good you never try to be. It is natural to be like the one we live with most; then if we spend most of our time with Jesus Christ, we shall begin to be like...

3 Simple Habits to Experience More Peace Every Day

By now most are aware of the massive amount of noise we consume on a regular basis. On average we spend nearly 2.5 hours per day on social media, watch 3.2 hours of video per day (only counting Netflix), and allow our thumbs to scroll roughly 52 miles (just about 2 marathons). More and more studies continue to show the negative impact screen time has on our mental health, physical health and ability (or lack thereof) to socialize with others. True as all of this may be, social media & “binge worthy” shows do a terrifyingly good job at keeping us hooked. While watching less Netflix and limiting time on TikTok sounds good in theory, we’ve come to enjoy the quick hits they give us....

Can Christians Meditate? The word “meditate” sometimes has...

How To Use the Kairos Journal

The Daily Kairos Journal was born out of a deep acknowledgment that without carving out and cultivating a deep and intimate set-aside time with God, everything else in life not only would not last but would undoubtedly fall apart. We realized that we longed for intimacy and closeness with God, but rarely had the time to seek His face.  Like many of you, we saw how easy it is to get caught up in the current of life. A thousand things demand our attention from sun-up to sun-down and every moment in between. Finally, we decided enough was enough. And so, we set out to create a daily habit of meeting with God. And in that process, we created the...
