Question
I feel lost and like I need something steady however I have so far been unable 2 find the right thing. I recently found out about the wiccan belief while reading 1 of my many books. I connected strongly with the belief and have been trying 2 find out more and where I could find a wiccan 2 help me with their ways and belief  but have been unsuccessful. I'm 16 which has not helped me find info and my parents will not allow me 2 "wast" my money on books about "stupid" beliefs. I found a link 2 this site and was wondering if u could help me find out more about the Wiccan ways and beliefs, at the moment I know very little and am more or less clueless about these beliefs however they seem 2 call 2 me, make me feel like something out there is open, steady and real. Hope u can take the time 2 read through this and help me connect with the Wiccan ways or find out more about them. Hope I'm not just wasting yr time, I swear I'd b mega grateful for yr help and input. Thank u for yr time (if u read this that is) and I look forward 2 getting a reply (if I do) yr`s sincerely Amy.w
