    In The Shadows And Out

    I discovered Paganism when I was very young. It was a relief for me to find that this nameless "thing" in my life and spirit was given a title. Many things made sense to me, as it usually happens with others. I didn't share my new found beliefs with my family at first. I studied...

    Deeper And Deeper

    I fall deeper and deeper into myself, looking for the meaning of life, wondering about who I am and how I came to be. I look to my Goddess and ask her a question; just between the two of us, when the sun has yet to break the horizon to begin the dawn, I ask her who I am. She...

    Demons In Church

    I Love Who I Am And I Love Who We Are Together.

    Umm,I have felt my calling all my life and was raised a extremist christian and everything that wasn't just exactly "good christian" was the devil. So naturally the path of a pagan would be the most devlish of them all. However I have never agreed with anything I had been taught...
