My name is Nika, and I am 21 years old. I was raised Christian, but I stopped attending church when I was about 11, as I had too many questions and I didn't find myself believing in the faith. I considered myself as agnostic, until one day I stumbled upon Wicca. I realized I had already believed in much of the ideas Wicca presented, and I began to learn more about it. It made more sense to me than any other of the religions I had been exposed to as a child.
I have identified with Wicca for about 2 years, but I wasn't actively practicing it. I moved into a smaller home, in which I don't have room for an altar. My fiancé had gotten me a book about general Wicca, and within it they had mentioned online covens. I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before, but that is how I was led to this site.
I have a lot to learn about the craft, as I only know the very basics. I have visited Newbie Central already, and read the posts there. I am hoping to be accepted into a coven soon so that I may receive some guidance in my practice, and eventually will be able to help others.
