For me...

I was born and raised Christian (specifically Catholic) for most of my life. Although, we didn't really go to Church that often. My father was Jewish. So we celebrated some Jewish holidays and the Christian ones, as well.

Well, towards the end of 9th grade.. I started to go Church with my friend Kara. She was Epispolic (I can't spell right now, sorry). I went with her for a while. I went so far as to have gotten confirmed.

The summer going into 11th grade.. I was doing a lot of thinking.. About myself.. about where I was going in life.. After all I only had two years left of high school.

I realized that I wasn't sure if I totally and utterly believed in everything that Christianity was. It didn't make me feel warm inside, so to say.

I started studying Paganism in the beginning of my junior year of high school. I started studying in very much. I stopped going to Church with Kara, needless to say. The first Wicca book I ever read was "Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practioner" by Scott Cunningham.

I love that book. I still do.

Here I am.. 17 almost 18 years old. A senior in high school who attends the local college (fun stuff, lol). I am now involved in a Coven a few towns away from me. The High Priestess is going to be teaching me once she gets her surgery over with and is okay to do so.

Wicca has literally saved my life. I had started studying Wicca at a time in my life when I was very unsure of everything. Even myself. I didn't know who I was for a long time.

Wicca allowed me to find myself again. Not just through Wicca, but in general.

Wicca makes me feel like I've come home. No matter where I am or what I'm doing.. I am always with the Gods and Goddesses (I haven't yet found my patrons, lol).

I know that no matter what happens.. They are with me. I can always come back to where I belonged. Which is in Wicca. In the Gods and Goddesses. And in myself.
