Epiphany means a devine revelation from God. The stars that led the wisemen to Jesus was called the epiphany. It is celebrated through the Catholic faith in the form of a festival called the Festival of the epiphany and it starts on Jan. 6th.

Epiphany as a name is spelled Epiphanie. She loves life and is full of energy. She has a beautiful smile and is extremely creative and leans toward fashion designing. She wears her heart on her sleeve and her nature is very pure and sweet. She is lovable and enjoys to please. She has a servants heart and is completely selfless and people gravitate to her because of her amazing beauty and charm. She's amazing and our family would have missed out on the wonder that she brings to us everyday if she were not here!!! We are blessed to have her and she is our Epiphanie.
Mom: Girls you need to get your room cleaned today.
Epiphanie: I stayed up last night and finished it. Do you want me to get you something to drink?
Mom: That would be nice, thank you.
Epiphanie: Mom Si Mom!!! :)

We had an epiphany on Jan. 5th and named her Epiphanie!!!
