Your Kairos Moment

A time to seize your life.
Our days are made up of a series of somewhat predictable events. We build routines with our families and jobs, usually working long hours, with a commute on top of it all, to benefit someone else. Time passes quickly, and we move along its journey without much of a fight. This is referred to as “chronos,” the ordinary passage of time. It often leaves many of us feeling unfulfilled and wanting to take more control of their lives.
But life will also present many “kairos” moments. These are events that intersect our normal routine and course of life and present us an opportunity to seize the moment, to take control, and to change our lives for the better. Sometimes these events are joyous, like a birthday, a marriage, or a promotion at work. Sometimes they are just the opposite—a death in the family, a divorce, or a loss of work.


However these kairos moments arrive, it’s the perfect time to go from just making a living, to making a life.


View a kairos moment as a circle, the first half representing your time to observe, reflect, and discuss. The second half being a time to plan, account, and act. And back at the top of the circle, we enter back into our life routine with a newfound understanding, appreciation, and actionable steps.
The kairos circle is the foundation for success with Make A Life. It has helped us through our own lives, and we’ve watched it help with thousands of other families across the globe.

Biblical Principals

Taking the steps to change our lives for the better, and giving up the living to work mentality doesn’t come without anxiety. But when we find ourselves overwhelmed by the immediately unanswerable questions we can rest easy by looking to the word of God.

Who better to teach us how to live freely in the world but the One who created it. He is bigger than any problem that we face, and with him we have nothing to worry about. Trusting in the word and His plan is the first step in overcoming the initial challenges of making a life.

God has blessed us with what we call “Relational Capital”—a network of relationships that can take us to places we could never go alone. Having a strong sense of stewardship over our network of friends and family is essential to end the daily grind of living to work.
