Christian mom interested in paganism

I was raised Christian as a child, yet the older I get the more it just seems wrong. I have been interested in pagan religions for years yet I do not really understand them fully. Any help would be appreciated.

  • There are several different "Pagan" paths to choose from. There are several ladies on here who are following differing Pagan paths. I would be happy to share with you my beliefs. And the group End Religious Intolerance and Ignorance. It has loads of imformation on Paganism and there are several Pagan ladies in there as well. Here is a link

  • Secondly, Lauri_s. I am what's called an Eclectic Pagan Witch. What this means is that I do not follow any one pagan path, I pull from many and I practice witchcraft. It's like a non-denom Christian. However I do not believe any religion is wrong, they are all right for someone, just not everyone. I would feel blessed to lend you a hand in finding the path that is right for you. If you are interested in Paganism the best website I can send you to is www.PagansPath.com It's an awesome general site and is written for the novice while even helping the expert. IF you are like me and prefer an actual book, I would be happy to recommend a few! Also, please feel free to PM me with questions. I'm going to send you a friend invite so that we can chat.


    Blessed Be
    Sabrina

  • When i was looking (12 years ago) for information i found the books by scott cunningham. for me they made sense the language in them was easy to understand and they kept it on a level that was basic. Also Raymond buckland has a "big blue book" it has a lot of information. check with your local library a lot of them have books on paganism.

  • One book that really helped me was Paganism:An Introductios To Earth-Centered Religions. It goes into detail about what Paganism is. I grew up Christian too so i had/have alot of questions. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or just want to talk about it.
