For a long time I have struggled with the idea that my true self, not the fake mask I might put on for people, could be beautiful. This past summer I spent two weeks at Camp Cedar Cliff as a mountaineer, and during that time I finally comprehended the truth that God created me beautiful. I didn’t need to prove my beauty to anyone else, it was enough to be considered breathtaking by the Creator of the universe. Without the lessons, stories, days without makeup, and truths from my counselors, I don’t know if I would have ever understood that. I am so thankful for the ways God uses the staff at Camp Cedar Cliff to affect my life and the lives of all the kids who spend time there during the summer.
