Finding Something Tru

Well I had a rough experience coming to Asatru, after experimenting with Wicca, I found it lacked the structure that I wanted, I wasn't living with honor and I felt a draw in my blood when I began to read about Asatru on-line (all the while at a catholic college) The Gods called me home and its been hard converting and living pretty much with out morals to striving to be a man of honor but the Gods, I found are patient with their younger kin, but by no means are they push overs! Well now I strive to live with honor and I do make my fair share of mistakes, but I didn't expect for the transformation to be over night or to be easy but as long as the Gods walk with me I'm sure I'll have the courage and strength to soldier on. Its defently not easy living your faith at a catholic college but then again its a good experience because I'm going to learn how to deal with people of other faiths and still stand up for mine! Feel free to contact me if your Asatru, I'd love to hear your story and make a new friend.

Thank you for sharing your story. I've had a similar experience too. I was raised Catholic and went to a Catholic college. In high school I delved into Wicca and by college I was experimenting with Druidism. I craved a path that provided me with structure and a sense of direction. While Wicca and Druidism are immensely interesting faiths, they didn't capture my heart. It wasn't until a year ago that I finally discovered Asatru. Instantly I felt like I was home. I walk with the Gods everyday. They grant me strength and confidence in this crazy world. I am a better person now than I ever was before. Hail the Gods of Asgard!

By the way all Christians who feel the need to troll a ASATRU group and spout out your opinions about "the ONE TRUE GOD," your comments will be deleted. I grew up in a Christian family, I go to a Catholic college I've heard all your preaching before and I don't need to hear it again. I really don't need to justify to any Christian why I'm Asatru, there are plenty of places to debate religion on the internet and a group where heathens get together to share their stories isn't one of them.
