"I have found Andraste to be a warrior Goddess.
Quick to defend her own. A leader, an inspirer, a go-getter, a mother.
She is the lady of the empty scabbard as she holds her sword aloft to
rally her troops to action. Protector of the weak, champion of the
oppressed, and mother to all"
"Andraste is the Goddess of
Norfolk, she is the protector of the land and it's people, from our
ancestors of the Iceni tribes to the present day people of Norfolk. She
is to be called upon when we feel weak and challenged, she will guide us
through tough times. She is seen in the fields of Norfolk as her Hare
races across her sacred land, to remind us to be free-spirited. Call her
name and she will hear you and give you hope. Bless Andraste."

her children, very nurturing as she assists us through life's

helps us become stronger and more confident. Andraste is always there
to guide us home, into her arms. Just as she always has our backs."
