For most people when they first visit Hawai'i, they understand that aloha means hello + goodbye. If you stay here for a little while, the meaning behind this word becomes so much deeper. The literal meaning of aloha is "the breath of life." It comes from "alo," meaning presence, and "ha," which means breath. To live a life full of aloha means to have a heart so overflowing with love that you have the ability to influence others with your spirit.
In the Greek language, zoe translates to "life" in English. Specifically, we can see zoe in John 1:4: “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” Zoe in this verse signifies the divine, uncreated, incorruptible, indestructible, and eternal life of God—the zoe life. We believe what He did for us, and His Zoe now dwells within us. After receiving this, God becomes our real life and we can express Him through our daily living.

To us, our business represents these two concepts that we choose to live by each and every day: aloha + zoe. After living in Hawaii, we have come to know, understand, and truly respect the way of life and embrace the aloha spirit that lives in the people we have met here. Zoe represents our resounding faith in the Lord and signifies the eternal life that we know exists in us because of Jesus. We pray that our work represents aloha + zoe and our clients leave us feeling this presence in our hearts and our work.
