Mini Epiphanies

[encounters with God in the midst of daily life]

When you’re fully present and in tune with how everything and everyone is connected and feel gratitude for the Lord’s hand in your life, those little ah-ha moments, help open your eyes to your impact on the world around you and reconnect you with your purpose in life.

Those moments remind us how life should be lived in a relationship with the One who created everything. They help realign our mind, body, and spirit and remind us that everything matters and everything has spiritual & eternal implications.

Miniphanies® was birthed out of a desire to share ancient truths in relatable ways, inspired by the every day. The aim of every episode is to inspire you to live intentionally, with wholehearted pursuit of Jesus, and embrace a healthy relationship with God and mankind.


Everything is Spiritual.
