shame, guilt, love, and evangelism

shame, guilt, love, and evangelism

A few weeks ago, a woman got onto the subway at the stop after mine, and after awhile, she began to preach.  At first, I thought she might have been the slightest bit crazy, because she started by quoting random lyrics to old-school church songs (but saying them, not singing them), and it’s not unusual in…

being the church: thoughts on love and life together

being the church: thoughts on love and life together

­I’m so excited to share this guest-post from my dear friend Maria with you.  Maria is one of the wisest, kindest, and most thoughtful people I know, and I love chatting with her.  I almost always come away with some new insight about what it really means to love God and love people, and I’m…

and this is love: reflections on friendship and being the Church

and this is love: reflections on friendship and being the Church

I’ve written a lot about friendship over the past few years, and I’m not entirely sure that’s coincidence.  Things have been consistently… well, shall we say challenging, for lack of a better word, and I’m not joking when I say that I don’t know how I ever would have gotten through any of it without the kindness, caring,…

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life – #4: the one about transparency

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life – #4: the one about transparency

I have a confession to make.  The title of this series changed about 5 times as I perused my shelves. “Oh, but I love this book; I have to tell people about this one.”   “No, I can’t include that one; people won’t understand it.”   “How can one person read this many books? (Every….

fighting words

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.
