innocence, loss, and hard-won faith

innocence, loss, and hard-won faith

Sometimes I miss what Sarah Bessey calls the “happy clappy” days of my faith.  I was sixteen when I decided that being a follower of Jesus was going to be something that defined me for the rest of my life, and in some ways the decision is still that simple: “Yes.” But there was an innocence…

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,…

My OneWord for 2016

My OneWord for 2016

I don’t think I’ve ever been so glad to see a year come to an end. New Year’s Day is typically one of my favorite holidays because it represents new beginnings, and as such, holds so much promise.  So far this year, it’s been hard to feel that promise – and the excitement I wish would come…

sarcasm and the single girl

sarcasm and the single girl

Today’s guest post in our series on singleness and the church is from my friend and fellow-blogger, Jen. Jen is one of the most beautiful people I know, inside and out, and she approaches being single the way she approaches everything else: with a positive attitude, and a heart that looks for the beauty in…

adventures in Lent

adventures in Lent

The more I’ve talked with people about Lent, the more I’ve realized: it can be a very misunderstood season.  I’ve misunderstood it myself.  So often, Lent is painted as a long, dark, and barren season – and with good reason: traditionally, people tend to “give something up” for Lent – and when you’ve given up…

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.
