This blog is written by me, Amber, and illustrations are by my husband, Matt. We live in the Puget Sound area of Washington state with our young son and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Quiet Epiphanies is a personal journal of our lives, centered around the idea that everyday moments turn into something meaningful when we process and share them. This is our place to share what we learn from things we do in our ordinary, kinda-crunchy lives–training our dog, teaching our son sign language, washing cloth diapers, taking the bus, getting a homemade dinner on the table and the like. Go easy on us, we’re figuring things out as we go along.

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life–your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life–and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.
