— 1 — Happy Friday! How was your week? Mine was – well… deep. I’ve had a number of very intense conversations this week about everything from re-defining forgiveness to the abuse of power in the church, and I also had the privilege of participating in a synchroblog about anger. One of the things I…

Simple Felicity is, at its heart, a blog based on the unshakeable belief that happiness really isn't all that complicated.

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