sacred space

I lead worship for a bunch of 20somethings and college folks who are chasing Jesus with everything they’ve got on their best days (and still trying to on their less-than-great days). A couple weeks ago we did this thing we call “Sacred Space” – and I have to be honest with you – I poured…

Last night I was on the phone with a friend who was filling me in on how God has answered our prayers for some things in his life, and he finished off by saying, “God is good.” To which I responded with only a split-second hesitation, “All the time.” I could hear the smile in…

Jeremiah 31:21-22: “Set up road signs; put up guideposts. Take note of the highway, the road that you take. Return, O Virgin Israel, return to your towns. How long will you wander, O unfaithful daughter? The LORD will create a new thing on earth – a woman will surround a man.” What?! After three hours…

untapped colors

“There are more colors on the palette of your soul than you have even begun to paint with.” Matt said that in November, three years ago, and I’d forgotten about it until last weekend, when I came across it in a journal, and it made me cry. Apparently it made me cry then too, because…

The thing about being an artist is that sometimes you get stuck on something and you just can’t get past it until you’ve found some way of expressing 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.
