Lynn W says Hello!
« on: December 13, 2011, 11:21:42 AM »


My name is actually Jennifer but i prefer to go by my middle name (Lynn). Last spring I decided that I wasn't a Christian. I have no problems with Christianity or any other religion. Christianity just never felt right to me personally. I spent the first 28 years of my life trying very hard to make it fit but it never did. So last spring I started researching other religions and ways of life. When I found Wicca it was like love at first sight. I know very little about being Wicca, but I plan to learn. I've already begun looking at books in this sites store. It feels like for the first time in my life I've found something I can really believe in something that fits ME!

Greetings and welcome

The book I always recommend as a starter is Buckland's: Complete Book of Witchcraft.
It's written very simply and cover a wide range of subjects. Also provides references to other books worth reading.
I stay away from Cunningham as, in my view, he's was fundamental in the creation of the McWiccans.

Welcome LynnW . Just to say before you start spending money on books to keep most library carry Buckland on can get it from another library . Always the best place to start is to read then if you do not understand ask questions. So Well Meet .
