I’m still thinking about the whole missions thing and how all the pieces of my crazy life fit together.  There are two things I know for certain. One is that I am called to missions. The other is that I am called to lead worship. It makes sense to me that those two things would…

signposts, maps, and a sense of direction

signposts, maps, and a sense of direction

The other day, I was out hiking a new trail. There were signs posted when trails intersected or when the main trail turned, so I was fairly confident that I knew where I was going, but along the way there were all these inviting little unmarked trails, and I kept wondering where they went. I…

i am not the perfect mother

(in memory of Susannah Wesley)                     I am sticky, with peanut butter artwork all over my chair; the table is covered with crumbs and he grins, with his brown milk mustache.   Susannah had more children than I have imagined, yet she lived. I do not…

loving God

    I recently found myself unexpectedly challenged by something I’ve read. It’s from a book by Peter Rollins called How (Not) To Speak of God. First, this (he’s talking here about traditional forms of apologetics and why the emergent church doesn’t embrace them): “…if someone is convinced that there is a place where they will…

weeping willows and blazing glory

At the house where I lived for the first year and a half of my life, there is (or was) a gigantic weeping willow. I know this because my uncle owned the house and we used to go visit him and pick blackberries and raspberries from the bushes in the backyard, and then we used…

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.
