be where you are (it’s not failure)

be where you are (it’s not failure)

I love the way God sets things like this up. My friend Faith has a friend who has a “book blog” who reviewed Dan Brennan’s book, Sacred Unions, Sacred Passions.  Then my friend Sara, who found Kathy Escobar‘s blog years ago, sent me a link to one of Kathy’s posts about this conference at which she…

I’m “helping” (whatever that means) with the redesign of a website right now, and one of the super-fun tools we’re using to do it is called inVision.  Essentially what I’m doing is creating jpegs that look like what we want various pages of the website to look like, and then using inVision’s crazy cool magic to…

A good friend of mine dropped me a note shortly after I preached last month, and one of the things he said was, “I think it was the first time people got to see you onstage.  You seemed very comfortable with yourself and your message.”  It struck me as a little funny…  I mean, who was I the last time…

Solitude and silence are two disciplines that I often practice together.  They can be separated, but it takes a lot of intentionality to practice silence in a group, and solitude just lends itself to being quiet.  Saturdays, as my current Sabbath day, usually have a good chunk of time built in for both these disciplines, but…

Being a leader in a 20-somethings ministry, the whole dating/relationship question is one that comes up a lot in conversation… pretty much anywhere we are – restaurants, road trips, parties, restrooms, church services – you name it – any time, any place, someone is either thinking about it or talking about it.

Meet Happy

Thanks for visiting!

Simple Felicity is, at its heart, a blog based on the unshakeable belief that happiness really isn't all that complicated. Sometimes finding it can be - but happiness itself is pretty simple, and it's often found in the simplest of things: good food, good books, and good company. So those are the things I write about, along with a few other things that really matter to me, including faith and feminism.

A bit about me: My name is Happy. I have an amazing talent for misplacing my keys, a deep appreciation for whomever looked at the coffee bean and thought, "Hey, I wonder what would happen if I roasted this?", and road trips to Michigan are pretty much my favorite.

Contact me anytime at simplefelicity7 (at) gmail (dot) com! I'd love to hear from you.
