can i have your input please?
My MIL just sent me an email asking about my religious preferences. My IL's are the only ones who i have ever hid my faith from, and i have recently stopped trying so hard to hide it. She is finally confronting me. I have never had to deal with this before, as i have always been open to everyone.
I need some help with what i should say to her. If you are in the groups End Religious Intolerance and Ignorance and/or Pagan and Proud i have posted more detailed info there.
I've already written a response. ...but i haven't sent it.

Even though you may do spell work, I would avoid that for now. I agree with Owl Feather. Try explaining that you see the divine in a more natural state. Thats the way I explained it to my family. That I see the more deeply the connection the Divine has with us through nature. The wind is the breath they take, the water their tears of joy or sadness, the fire their spirit, the Earth is a part of their embodiment. Don't waver, be confident. Make sure they understand that this is how YOU find peace and the place that your spirit calls home. Also stress to them how you are teaching your young how important it is to respect all religions. And that you appreciate their understanding that your path is your own. Remember stand strong but do not go on the defense first.
