I have just finished taking a one year training course through True North, on Charlotte Mason and her theories and philosophies. We were a small group of 11 students and our instructor, Shelia Carroll. This was an awesome year, we bonded together, prayed for one another, and learned and grew close over this past year. These wonderful ladies have become a part of each other's lives in a real way...Sheila Carroll (our instructor), Terri Hitt, Elizabeth Falckh, Nichelle Bilinski, Yuko Muhling, Katrina Snyder McAllister, Annie Zimmerman, Dana Combs, Charissa Deuser, Michele Miller & myself.
I believe that we all have a common theme this year..."HOPE"
This is the verse that God brought to mind to Annie, which is very fitting for our group.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
