having eyes to see: why spiritual abuse is on the rise

having eyes to see: why spiritual abuse is on the rise

There’s been a lot of talk lately about “spiritual abuse” in the Church. In truth, these conversations have been happening for centuries – for example: the prophet Jeremiah called out priests and prophets on the misuse of their authority, Jesus had rather a lot to say to the Pharisees, and then there was that one…

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol 65): megachurch scandals and the best podcast ever

A few weeks ago, I shared an article in which Dale Fincher responded to a quote from John Piper concerning emotional blackmail, and I mentioned that reading it had helped me realize how I needed to un-learn some of the incredibly unhealthy conflict management skills I’d been taught.  I’ve been thinking about all of this for days now, and let…

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.
