Message from Carolyn Roberts, former student

Hi Sheila,

I often think of you! No doubt you are still a mover and a shaker with the new book endeavor and all! Way to go!  I have had the wonderful opportunity to study under you and for that I am grateful. Learning from you made me more aware of the bigger picture. Previously, I felt that living in a small town gives you "small town mentality" but I've been able to broaden my perspective. Every issue that I face from day to day living has a bigger meaning to me now. I find myself looking beyond the "what we can see" and into the maybes and what ifs.  So you see, my mind has been changed, stretched, inspired, and just opened up to endless possibilities and opportunities. I feel hopeful and contented now, knowing I have a purpose. Also knowing that life is not black or white, it is rainbow! I would like to thank you for your guidance and direction in my life. It has changed me for the better! I wish you all the best in your future endeavors, knowing full well that whatever you attempt, you will succeed!  And one more thing: if I had to describe you in a phrase, I would say “you are a potential puller, you pull the potential out of those whose lives you affect!"
