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

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. Single. Year…)”…

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…

Happy Lent, everyone! I know, I know – Lent isn’t really known for its joy. But this year, I’m choosing to look at Lent not so much as a season of sacrifice but more as an adventure with God.  Giving something up for Lent will inevitably teach me some things – it always does –…

Meet Happy

Thanks so much for visiting Simple Felicity! 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.

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 femininity.

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