I have been actively studying and practicing magick since 2000. I am a High Priestess (2005), a follower of the Old Ways, and an ordained minister (ULC). I am currently in graduate school, working on my master' degree in special education. It is my goal in life to create a new English anthology geared toward students with learning disabilities that contains regular grade level stories but presented in a fashion that will allow said students to access the material. My current thesis is centered on the use of graphic novels/comic books with students with learning disabilities. My bachelor's degree is in English/secondary education and I taught for five years before taking time off to work on my masters degree.
I met Awen around 2001 through a Yahoo chat rooms/groups. At first I was very frightened of speaking with him because of the many rumors people had spread. However, once I started chatting with him, I found out what a helpful and kind spirit he truely is. Just goes to prove the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover!". After a great deal of talking with each other throughout the years (online, phone, and in person), we realized how close we had grown. We are now officially married; special thanks to Beverly and everyone who made our marriage happen!
I have four children whom I love dearly from my first marriage. Awen and I have two lovely children of our own. I'm working on writing two children's books and two teen books to help young people understand the Craft. I am also working on a sci-fi/fantasy book, and my book on D.I.V.I.N.E.. My hobbies include learning about and practicing belly dancing, Tai Chi, and Yoga in the belief that by exercising my body and mind, I can attain a higher level of spiritual union. I am also learning Martial arts/Self-Defense from Awen, through his school Student of Life Combined Combative Arts offered every Sunday at 6pm here in Shakopee, Minnesota as well as by appointment. (All of our websites are also located on fan pages on Facebook so please feel free to look us up).
I also manage my husband's jewelry business Awen's Creations, and his Minnesota Darth Vader Impersonator business. As a stay at home mother I find that I have been blessed with the time to devote to helping my husband, and furthering my own businesses as well. I sew for my online shop Mystic Forest, as well as provide tarot readings in person and online, as well as offer tutoring both online and in person.
It is my hope that through the Cove website and our forum as well as offline work, and the inner circle S.A.I.V. we can create an interactive Councel of Elders to build a network of like-minded souls, and to work together to better ourselves and the world around us.
Blessed Be. Your Humble Servant!!
Aidpage: (Why I'm here)
I run an advice column on my personal blog helping people to understand paganism but also answering questions much in the same format as good old Anne Landers. When I heard about this site it was on my Myspace account (ladyeldorath) and I thought what a wonderful idea and a great community service project.
I didn't come on here to play "know it all", nor did I do so because I enjoy telling people what to do. Though, I admit that my teacher side, which is my nature does show through and I may at times give it to you straight but with compassion. I also have a knack for finding resources online.
Being a writer, I have a few works published on various pagan e-zines, I do tend to write my resource tips rather then just list them. So my blog formats will generally come in antedotes, summations, and so forth. Very seldom will I do just a list. I may do an annotated list but that again involves a deal of writing, which I enjoy.
As mentioned, I am an ordained minister through the ULC. I'm here as a minister to do my part in service to help others. That may be through helping them find the resources they need in their community, provide a listening ear, or help someone work through their problems online if they do not have that kind ear where they are at.
I'm not without feeling the tough times of the economy. I feel we are all feeling the same things and what an interesting time to find out this website during the start of the season when stress is at its highest. I will more than likely post inspirational writings as well to help us all get through these tough economic times and perhaps look upon the wonderful life we all have with a slightly new perspective.
