There are some great book shops around our area (luton), one of the best is near watford, its a little village farm shop called Destiny's, and the farm village is called Battlers Green farm village just outside of watford on the way to radlett. They have a huge library of books there and some very helpful girls that are always willing to chat (usually outside in the sun relaxing outside the shop). Pop by some time and have a chat and a browse, everyone is welcome.

Power only comes through the persistent struggle in one's life for spiritual development.
So true..that quote definitely describes my spiritual life, a persistent struggle.

Invader Zim is a cartoon they used to show on Nickelodeon, it was great, and really not for little kids, which is why I think it got cancelled.
My first post!

Newbie, that word describes how I probably will always be....
I have been studying paganism and wicca for about... three years, trying to decide if I wanted to convert or whatever. Well, about a month, two of my bestfriends who had also been studying it and I decided that we were going to.
The only problem is.... we are the only pagans any of us know in real life
That is the trouble with living in the middle of nowhere in a Bible-belt state. So, yea. The three of us have to piece together stuff from books and other things we read. That is, when we get the CHANCE to read books. If any of my family members found out, I would be disowned, the same goes for another of the three of us. And the other one, my boyfriend, has already told his Mom (she's cool with it), but he would be kicked out of his dad's house if he told the people there.
Does anyone have any words of advice that could help us out in our little quandary?

sounds like the same as all of us around here.
Things get much better when you move out, believe me. I live in a bible belt state and my parents are very strict christians. They live in AZ and Im in KY.
I thought me and my boyfriend, FIrelord, were the only pagans in this town or state even.
But you have to look, there are mass amounts of pagans everywhere just lying low, underground. I have found tons of pagans in KY (not any in my particular town tho) thru websites and such. Try www.witchvox.com
And I get books from the library or book stores and I would stash them away in my room when I wasn't reading them. Hopefully your parents don't go thru your stuff.
And I have never told my parents I am pagan and probably never will. Its none of their business really.
But believe me it does get better, Im glad you have your frineds.

Well, I am new at this. I had talked to a friend in California when I went to camp, and he had gotten me interested. Now I'm looking into this whole thing.
I have never had any faith as the fact that I believed that one god could never rule the world. My family are also athiest (sorry if I spelt that wrong), though i am not. I believe in hope, some sort of higher power, and a need to feel the world's energy. I need to be outside occasionally since the world is beautiful.
What can i do to know more. What can i read? Who can I talk to?

there are tons of great websites and books, and of course you always have this site and all of us to ask questions too. We will be happy to help, no questin is too stupid.

Welcome to the library.
I was hoping on finding a book that I can read so I can get a better understanding on everything...
Then the questions will fly!

Try Scott Cunningham, he's got a lot of good books. Also Silver Ravenwolf, but some of her stuff can be a little fluffy(IMO).

My first book was Celtic Myth and Magick by Edain McCoy. If you're interested in the Celtic pantheons this is a good book. Oh, and byt the way, welcome!
