After Nicholeen presented this class, TSG student Pennie wrote this to Nicholeen:
“The day after I asked this question on the Support Group, I was thinking about what you said about being so efficient that I stop being effective. I realized that sometimes I get out of control and start to order what I think are ‘instructions’ at my children. The very reason why I start ordering is because I am trying to be SO efficient. The truth is that my mission and my life means nothing if I am not effective in showing my children how to love, how to speak lovingly by being calm, and how to follow the principles of Self-Government.
…There is something truly providential in my learning path that happens while being immersed in the TSG environment. It’s like I work my hardest to be assertive, but sometimes some changes still happen after time through grace. It does take time, but I am living proof that they do happen. Thank you so much for teaching me the power of calmness. You have changed my life and saved my family from divorce.”
