HI Tinamarie. I am also one of Rev Vivian's students in the 2nd degree. I read how you had to start over, and can totally related. I had stopped at lesson 5 because of too much going on here at home and also my mentor had left, but kept on with the studies myself/ Then to get the Clergy, I see I had to have a mentor, so I was glad Rev Vivian took me on as a student, but all I had done of the second degree had to be redone, except for the multiple choice questions I had done. So I empathize with you about starting over.
