Hi, I'm Mel, and I hail from sunny Perth in Australia.
I came across Paganism a few years ago now, and realised that it fit perfectly with beliefs I've had my whole life. I was raised Catholic, but lost faith when I realised my catholic school teachers couldn't answer my questions because christianity didn't have the answers.
I believe in the ultimate power of nature, and am currently elbow-deep in a new spell book - tasty!
Glad to meet you all, and to have found a nice cosy corner of Spark! My goal is to lose the extra 10 kilos (22 pounds) I'm still carrying after having my first baby 5 months ago.
I am glad you found us. I hope you can find positive reasons to associate with us, rather than negative ones of being rejected by the religion you grew up with.
Christianity, in any form, can be limiting and can try to force you to believe something you are not capable of believing. Many forms of Paganism are based on the concept that, if you can't believe it, it's not believable. There are answers, they are simpler than you might think, and GOD IS LOVE. Really.
I overcame my spiritual obesity, now for the physical!

Hi, I am new to the team. My name is Victoria and I am very spiritually minded and open to new things. I am pretty disenchanted with mainstream religion, having been a Catholic for the first 45 years of my life and leaving that faith due to abortion, divorce and birth control differences in thinking.
Just call me a seeker.
