Your Faith Life Balance Point
What You Believe (Your Ethos)
Ethos simply means the disposition, character, or fundamental values particular to a specific person, people, corporation, culture, or movement. The Ethos refers to the spirit which motivates your ideas and customs.
Making time for you to think and grow.

If you find yourself experiencing one or more of the following, then you are in the right place at the right time…
You want to change but find that you miss the target and fall back into old ways
You’ve always wanted to make a difference but wonder if one person really can make an impact
You are filled with emotions and feelings, but are unable to express them appropriately or even express them at all
You are stressed out, often angry, and overwhelmed
You can’t seem to accumulate enough security in your life…there never seems to be enough to make me feel secure

You’re waiting and hoping for someone or something to bail you out of your life’s trials
