A 28-year-old life-long resident of Kansas City, Missouri, I've been married to my high school sweetheart since 2008. I work as a full-time caricature artist and volunteer in animal rescue in my spare time. I'm also happen to be a witch. I grew up in a Catholic-meets-Baptist household and truly enjoyed Sunday school, but neither religion seemed to click for me. When I was introduced to paganism and witchcraft in my preteens, the rest was history. I'm now an active member of the Kansas City pagan community, the Circle Coordinator for Circle of Fountains and the volunteer photographer for public community rituals. I've been published in Good Mojo and The Center Spiral, partnered with Sabbat Box, TheWitchery.ca and Blackthorn Hoodoo Blends, and am a contracted blogger at Pagan Bloggers.
Witchy Words strives to be a blogging resource on opinions about modern paganism and Witchcraft. Seeking transparency in all things, this blog offers a visual perspective on rituals, spell crafting, altars and more. My posts will take you right to the center of the pagan ritual circle - and not just one! Because I'm so active in the community, I often get the opportunity to give my readers multiple perspectives, including the secular pagan Circle of Fountains, community-involved Wiccan Liithi Lushede Coven, American Eclectic Heart of the Bear Grove, local small coven Terra Sol Luna, and more! It is my firm belief that this openness is not only needed to combat stereotypes but to educate those new to the religion or Craft who don't have access to community.
As with all blogs, Witchy Words is first and foremost an opinion site. Unlike a .edu or a .gov site, where resources are worked on by many people or specialists in the field, I'm just a single person on a journey. I try my best to cover a wide range of topics in a general fashion but I can and will make errors. Think of this blog as a catalyst for your own journey and research, inspiring you to dig deeper and see all the options that paganism, Wicca and Witchcraft can bring!
