Fran, I am a CRAH student. I have only completed 4 lessons. I would be very interested to in knowing what you have heard about it if you wouldn't mind sharing. It appears one person must not have had a good experience, I think I may contact her. I am "friends" with Laurie B., she is several Lessons ahead of me. I have nothing to compare it with, but I have been very pleased thus far. I work full time with a 1 hr commute to & from (2 hrs total per day). So my spare time is limited. Husband works shift work. Therefore, I love the freedom to study like crazy when the house is empty on weekends he's working, and spend time with hubby on the precious weekends he's off. My husband & I suddenly become empty nesters after 3 of my children have gotten jobs and moved out within the past 2 months. My 15 yo dog suddenly became ill and I had to have her put down. Hubby also just had hernia surgery yesterday. All of this happened in an 8 week period. If I would have had to attend a class and stay on their schedule I probably would have dropped out. So for me, it's been good. I sincerely wish you luck and hope you keep us posted!
