adventures in Brooklyn, vol. 7

Today has been interesting, to say the least.  I headed out to church in Tribeca this morning, and this doesn’t happen often, but there was actually a seat on the train, I made my connection just in time, and there was a seat on the 2nd train, too.  (I’m not even kidding: this is what…

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…

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…

(don’t) pity us

i had intended to write a really abstract post about this – a post that joked about the dichotomy between the two main perspectives that seem to exist for single Christians: “pity us!” “we are not to be pitied!” because if we are totally honest, those of us who are single can find ourselves thinking each…

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.
