Summer Camp

A Letter to Mom

As a follow-up to my post yesterday about TST I thought I would share an email we received from a mom of one of our TSTers this summer.  It provides a glimpse into the spiritual impact this program can have on a high school student.

“I just have to share with you a letter I received from Taylor after her first week of TST. It arrived on Sat. and I still had a week before I could give her a big hug.  I asked her permission to share it. So enjoy!”

Dear Mom,

I want to thank you so much for you in my life.

Today a girl in my cabin, named Megan, told us how God has tested her because her mom died when she was in 5th grade and she struggled a lot this year.  It was her first year at high school and she wanted to be able to talk to her mom about girl things like everyone else.  I realized I take your presence in my life for granted and I just want to thank you for everything.

I love our relationship and how I can talk to you about everything including God. I love you! Thanks for everything you do for me and I thank God for you.

Love, Taylor

Thanks for being here for me for all the girl things :o)

“I shared this with my sister and she said ‘you know, that is like getting an award. No it is a trophy!’  Remember that this is the same daughter that 2 years prior couldn’t stand me. That stage lasted about 9 months.  It is a blessing to see things come full circle.”
