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…

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…

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…

Today’s guest post, written by one of my dearest friends, shares a slightly different perspective: Just over a year ago, I began having a discussion with God about my hopes and dreams for marriage. I’d been talking with…

three dating hurdles worth overcoming

three dating hurdles worth overcoming

Earlier this week, I posted the first part of a follow-up conversation with my friend Brad about his podcast on internet dating. Here is the rest of our interview, which sort of accidentally ended up centering around three dating hurdles that Christian singles face, and some thoughts on overcoming them: Hurdle #1: an over-emphasis on relationship status…

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.
