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: #6 – the one about trust and vulnerability

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #6 – the one about trust and vulnerability

Confession #1: (I am slightly embarrassed to admit this but) I really love a good love story. Observation of Fact #1: There are a lot of really awful Christian romance novels out there.  (And when I say really awful, I’m talking “how-did-this-ever-get-published” awful…) Confession #2: As a result of Observation of Fact #1, when I find…

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #3 – the one about contentment

Seven Stories That Have Shaped My Life: #3 – the one about contentment

I have loved faerie tales all my life.  I still distinctly remember the summer I discovered Andrew Lang’s Fairy Books; I’m not sure I did anything other than read that summer. But one of my favorite fairy tales isn’t found in any fairy tale anthologies (that I know of).  This one is an annual re-read…

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.
