my name is Marie Moonstone, I don't really like using my mundane name. I am 21 years old and am new to being pagan. However I have been drawn to It's magical pull all of my life. Now that I am an adult, married, and my own person, I can walk down this path freely.
Growing up, I was in a very strict Christian atmosphere. Pentecostal on one side and Catholic on the other. I went to church Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night, Friday night. Pretty much whenever the doors were open and something was going on. I never really had a problem with Christianity, but I never felt free either. I had always been drawn to myth, the stars, magick, and the possibility that maybe there is more than one right way. More than one God. I dibbled and dabbled. Read secretly. But somehow I got scared out of my books and back into my Christianity.
Now currently in my life church is somewhat a part of who I am, I go Sunday mornings to see my family and friends. Sing a few songs because their God is still a God, I just believe know more than they do. My husband is Christian although not the everyday kind. I believe deep down he is seeking what I have found, but he too is scared.
I am happy to say that I am pagan and that I have more than one God or goddess looking over me and guiding me. That I am one with the universe and it is one with me. That I can learn things from the earth that a preacher and a book can't teach. I am so happy and free. I have never felt so close to the spirit as I do now.
