About

Mission Statement:

Making Kairos is a blog and podcast that seeks to help others find their own path to living a full and engaged life. Making Kairos uses storytelling as a medium for identification and connection. In particular, Making Kairos focuses on stories of Recovery, Physical Limitation, and Life’s Work.

Kairos:

Kairos is a Greek word for time. As opposed to the quantitative notion of time, Chronos, where we count the hours, days, and years, Kairos is a qualitative notion of time where we identify moments of decision making, realization, or pivotal change. Rather than asking the Chronos based, “What time is it?” A Kairos based perspective asks, “What is it time for?”
