questions, conversations, and cultural Christianity

questions, conversations, and cultural Christianity

One of the many questions I’ve found myself asking lately concerns the cultural nature of Christianity: how much of what I believe about what it means to be a follower of Jesus has been shaped by what people have told me to think versus what’s actually true?  And what haven’t I questioned yet that maybe…

on asking the right questions

There are moments that – for whatever reason – stick with us from the moment we experience them. The first time I watched Meg Ryan as Albert Einstein’s niece in IQ scrawl the words “Question Everything!!!” across a blackboard was one such moment for me. I think I’ve been subconsciously questioning everything ever since. A…

on the road to freedom

So much of the past three to four years of my life have been marked by an emergence of sorts.  I am still very much myself, but how I live into “being me” is very different now than it used to be.  I’m less guarded, more open, more likely to shoot straight about what I think…

on why i became a feminist

I remember coming home from a conference on cross-gender friendship a couple years ago, and calling one of my best friends from college.  “How’d it go?” she asked. “It was awesome.  I learned a lot…  oh, and I think I’m an egalitarian feminist.” She started laughing. “No, really.  I think I’ve been one for awhile, actually….

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 39): friendship, slander, and the gratitude meme

7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 39): friendship, slander, and the gratitude meme

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.
