I understand how it is. I'm 17 now and I've been practicing for about 4 years. My parents are very catholic, I even go to a catholic school. I just found ways to be with the lord and lady. Meditation, journaling, etc. I slowly added to my collection of tools, as well as my collection of knowledge. I have several books that have helped me, but above all of them is Teen Witch by Silver Ravenwolf. It talks about all of this kind of stuff, and it would be a good book to ask a family member to please read. Most of the reason family members don't accept the craft, is because they are misinformed.
