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.

5 Tips for a Better Morning Routine

When it comes to spending time with the Lord, there are no rules or regulations on how it ought to be done. The beauty of life and of Christ is that He’s given us the freedom of choice-- we choose if we want to accept Him as our Lord and Savior, we choose if we want to live our lives surrendered to Him, we choose if we want to obey Him.

5 Simple Steps to Spending More Time with God

As believers, we know how important it is to spend time with God. In fact, most of us would probably say that our relationship with Him is a top priority in our life. But how does that look on a day-to-day basis?
