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…

the one woman Christian men should marry

the one woman Christian men should marry

In December 2014, a pastor named Stephen Kim (of whom I had never heard) posted an article on his blog, nycpastor.com, entitled Ten Men Christian Women Should Not Marry.  It got a little bit of press in social media circles, but not much. Until he published a follow-up article: Ten Women Christian Men Should Not…

on why i became a feminist

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….

in which we (finally!) review Jesus Feminist

Jesus Feminist.  It took me months to get through this book – not because it was a difficult read, but because it was a great one.  I would read up to a point, and then I’d have to set it down and just think about it for awhile.  And then life would happen.  And then I’d pick…

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.
