Fix your thoughts on what is true,
Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
At Kairos Sober Living House we want women and men to trust Jesus to navigate their lives through the valleys and over the mountaintops, to a life filled with his companionship and joy.
Kairos is an ancient Greek word that means “a decisive, crucial point or time.” Choosing sober living is a decisive, crucial point in the life of a woman or man leaving behind the trials of a life in addiction. The mission of Kairos Sober Living House is helping women and men make the most of their crucial decision to be substance-free and to find or renew their purpose in life. We do all this through the love and mercy of Christ Jesus, who, for each person, sets the course, provides the strength and fills us with His Purpose for living.
