Hello! I'm Joanna.
I'm elated to have found this community of very knowledgeable and interesting people. I'm excited to learn new things from its members and moderators. To those whose tireless efforts and financial support make this resource possible, my humble thanks.
We are all in different places on our spiritual paths. I am relieved to see that there is a place for us to meet. Petrarca, and Vanitys_Fire, for your warm greetings and welcomes, my humble thanks.
I've been experiencing a powerful, spiritual pull toward the Goddess. My fiance, she is my priestess. Her (my fiance) magic is beyond my comprehension. That's ok, I don't expect to understand everything in this life. The way that, when it doesn't seem like ends are going to meet and I feel so helpless, she by the power of her will alone finds a way to make things work. It's uncanny. The more I believe in her and trust her the stronger she seems. It's really beautiful and breathtaking and humbling because it's not me that makes her this way. Whenever I'm getting doubtful, I look at her and my Faith is restored. I was almost full on atheist (not that there's anything wrong with that) until I saw the Goddess in her eyes.
It's the study of the Goddess that led me to look at Wicca as more than merely a religion (I'm not keen on "religion" besides my family is my real religion) but as a way to learn how to be a river to my family, to learn be a giver and nurturer. A few internet searches later and I found this site and its wonderful knowledge. For that wealth of knowledge and to all who contribute to it, my humble thanks.
