Name & Age: Jenni, 25 (OMG when did THAT happen! oh, last week....)
What kind of pagan are you?: yup. eclectic solitary whatchamacallit
Who are your deities (if any)?: do they really need names? i dont discriminate, i believe in ALL the Gods (and Goddesses) Mostly have faith in a Mother Earth entity
What pantheon do you use (if any)?: none really, sometimes i'll look up some to use certain names if i want to feel closer to a certain entity- Danu is one name for the Mother Earth
How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?: yes i mark their passing, for the most part i do the same way most of the country does with more emphasis on the pagan aspects than others give them (Haloween -Samhain, Ostara-Easter, solstices and equinoxes etc) i try to make special time to be alone with my thoughts and nature to feel more in balance with the earth.
Do you practice ritual on a regular basis? No. recently i've started a personal prayer book, it seems to help me focus rather than just have a whirlpool of thoughts
Do you have a permanent altar? kind of. i have a rock. i spoke to me, and i carried it back from a beach far away during a visit for an art class, sometimes i have a place for it, sometimes if my focus deviates from it, i find a place to keep it safe until we need to talk again.
Are you "out of the broom closet"?: pretty much. i answer Pagan or Other to all religious preference questions and i make no bones about it, but i dont start into it with other people often. i'm not willing to go there and have people attack my legitimate belifs with their quotes from a book. God speaks to me to, but she doesnt speak engilsh. or hebrew. my answers are in the form of actions.
Tell me about your family: DH Bill, DD Ellie is 2 and DS Bill Jr (Bubba) is 7 weeks :) the times in my life i have put the most energy into a prayer/spell/ whatever you want to call it i was asking to be blessed with my children- proof that somebody was listening

Name & Age: Mia, 27 (had to think about that one for a minute! :rolleyes:)
What kind of pagan are you?: Solitary Eclectic Wiccan. I pull from all over the place.
Who are your deities (if any)?: I don't have a matron/patron, but I'm open to them. I work with whomever seems suiting/I'm drawn to. Bast and Kali have always drawn me.
What pantheon do you use (if any)?: I don't have a specific one, but I'm very drawn to egyptian and some celtic.
How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?: Quickly. I honestly haven't had much space (or time) to do proper celebrations, but once we move in a few days that will all change! :D
Do you practice ritual on a regular basis? In very basic forms, but I try to practice often. Even if it's just meditation and simple rituals.
Do you have a permanent altar? Work in progress, but one I'm very anxious to complete. Currently, my altar "travels" to wherever I need it to be.
Are you "out of the broom closet"?: To DH and a couple others. I don't mind sharing (ILs are very Christian so I don't really try to bring it up to them) but I usually just start of with a generic "I'm spiritual" and go from there. Most people that ask me aren't looking for specifics and if I can explain it to them before labeling it, they are much more receptive.
Tell me about your family: Married to my wonderful (agnostic would be the best way to describe him spiritually) husband since July '10. Our first child, Emma was born in August '10. We are looking forward to TTC #2 soon! We wanted to start in January, but I have some health things to take care of so it may be bumped to starting in the spring. We'll see!
Anything else you want to share?: Lets get active here people! I love talking to other pagans. While I do have my set beliefs, I am big on tolerance of others. I love studying theology on the whole as well as philosophy (was a credit away from a double major in university!). So long as people "play nice" I love sharing differences in opinions/beliefs. We all can learn from one another, right?
Post a pic of yourself if you have one: Will upload later.
First off, I have severe "baby-brain" today, so my answers may be a little... *loses train of thought* =.=
Name & Age: Nope! 30
What kind of pagan are you?: I'm a good Witch ;) Don't really fit into a specific mold, so I never bothered labeling myself.
Who are your deities (if any)?: Everyone! <3
What pantheon do you use (if any)?: It depends on my mood really. To me, it's just the same deities, different names.
How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?: However feels right & usually alone.
Do you practice ritual on a regular basis? Nope.
Do you have a permanent altar? Sort of, not really.
Are you "out of the broom closet"?: Haha, for a while now.
Tell me about your family: We just got married 10/31/11 and BAM I'm pregnant with our first child. (First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage!) We're having a son, due sometime around the end of July. :)
Anything else you want to share?: No, but if you want to know, just ask. I don't bite. Hard.
Post a pic of yourself if you have one. Err I'll try.
