    Name & Age: Laura, 31

    What kind of pagan are you?: Generic, I guess. I pick and choose things I like from different genres.

    Who are your deities (if any)?:

    What pantheon do you use (if any)?: Celtic

    How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?: I don't really celebrate anything at the moment. I'd like to start now that my daughter is getting older.

    Do you practice ritual on a regular basis? Some little things, like meditation in the morning before I get up for the day. I try to hang on to that, otherwise life gets in the way.

    Do you have a permanent altar? No. To be quite honest I don't want to have anything extra that I have to clean . I like to be outside.

    Are you "out of the broom closet"?: If someone asks, then yes, but I don't volunteer.

    Tell me about your family: DH Dylan, atheist, DD Liadan, 14 months. Working on baby #2 but have had three m/c.

    Anything else you want to share?: I lurk here on occasion and always mean to stick around, but then I forget! Hope to be around more now. I love to learn new things.

    Post a pic of yourself if you have one. DD and I in July.

    Name & Age: Amy (Esha Banloach River), 21

    What kind of pagan are you?: Wiccan/Druid

    Who are your deities (if any)?: Artemis, Greenman

    What pantheon do you use (if any)?: --

    How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?: Haven't started yet, but will try soon for Samhain

    Do you practice ritual on a regular basis? With a 3 month old, I just try for once or twice a week

    Do you have a permanent altar? Nope, not yet

    Are you "out of the broom closet"?: Only to a few people, not my family yet

    Tell me about your family: An athesist(sp) dad who is extremely sweet and loving and the best dad i could ask for. A non-practicing Mormon mother who was a little rough around the edges with me, but we love each other now that we don't live together. We're too much alike. My sister is the highest person on my list of loves. Three of my grandparents have passed away and I miss them like crazy. Lots of aunts and uncles and sweet little cousins. I do have one set of uber-conservative Christian aunt and uncle, they thought i was a heathen long ago, I just proved them right

    Anything else you want to share?: I'm fairly new, I've really only been studying for a few months (since May) and just did a kind of initation ritual on the new moon. I know most people say to study for a year or so, but I can't afford the amount of books that I can go through studying in a year. I hope to increase my library of pagan and naturalist books though.

    Post a pic of yourself if you have one.

    Name & Age: Stephanie, 25

    What kind of pagan are you?: New... So I don't have a title for my beliefs. I am leaning towards solitary Wicca although I still have a lot of Christian beliefs sticking around from childhood as well.

    Who are your deities (if any)?: None really. I'm TTC now, so I have baby brain. I have thus been focusing on Brigid as she represents fertility. I wear a Brigid medallion 24/7

    What pantheon do you use (if any)?: Unknown at this point

    How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?: I'm starting to incorporate this into my daily life. As of now, I tend to do research on the sabbat when it comes around so I can learn what it is that I want to celebrate.

    Do you practice ritual on a regular basis? No

    Do you have a permanent altar? No

    Are you "out of the broom closet"?: Those close to me know my inclinations. Once I fully commit myself to Wicca, I will have no shame in telling anyone. I don't want to be uneducated and claiming to be Wicca, however.

    Tell me about your family: I have a husband to whom I've been married for almost 6 months. We have a beautiful 19 month old son and we are trying for our second. I have two awesome parents who have always taught me tolerance and open-mindedness.

    Anything else you want to share?: I'm learning..teach me!

    :Lurk:
    Name & Age: Jen, 21 - Riftara is my public magic name and my allias

    What kind of pagan are you?: Tameran, though i want to be fully Kemetic eventually

    Who are your deities (if any)?: I'l use greek names so you have some clue as to who I'm talking about, but I use the Egyptian ones - Isis, Nephythis, Osiris, Horus (the younger), Set, Bast, Nut, Geb, Shu, Tefnut, Ra, Hathor

    What pantheon do you use (if any)?: the Egyptian, but mainly those above. I will call on others if the need arises.

    How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?: With a coven I sorta belong to when possible, with my sis when its not.

    Do you practice ritual on a regular basis? sadly no, I haven't the space or ability right now.

    Do you have a permanent altar? it's packed up right now - we are living in two rooms at my parents house, no room for an alter.

    Are you "out of the broom closet"?: yep 1000%

    Tell me about your family: Me, DH Edd 22, who is not anything religiously or spiritually, and soon to be Ember (due Dec 19, but she wll be here soon). We are living with my mom and dad and little sis - 17 who is also pagan. (Mom and Dad blame that n me, though they are mostly open minded)

    Anything else you want to share?: I mostly lurk here, I would like to be more active though. I've been practicing for about 10 years, and I've been on this path for at least 5 of those years. I have a coven, but I'm not technically a member since they meet about an hour away, but I would like to be. Right now my life is kinda upsidedown and I would like to get my home life settled before anything else. I do keep note of the turning of the moon and such, but I rarely find time to do more than spend a few moments acknowledging it. All my stuff, including my BOS is packed, and I find it hard sometimes to focus without something to focus on.
