Click on the link above and read the article. If memory serves me correctly, I did this activity at Girl's Camp growing up. I believe I was youth leader and had the task of leading my girl's through the 'treacherous path.' I did my best to act as the Holy Ghost. I remember coming out of the woods with the girls crying. They were so grateful to have made it to the end. It was an incredible experience, and like the sister who wrote the above article, everyone involved felt the affects in one way or another.
But, what happened to the girls who let go? They had the chance to come back and to take hold of the rod. Jesus Christ will never ever give up on us. We may have times where we feel alone and downtroddened, and those are the times when we need Him the most. I'm so grateful to know He loves me, you and everyone who has lived and will ever live on this earth. He genuinely wants us to be happy eternally and it's up to us to hold on and greet him gratefully at the end.

Under the definition of ‘Temple’ in the Bible Dictionary, we read the following: ‘It is the most holy of any place of worship on the earth,’ followed by this insightful statement: ‘Only the home can compare with the temple in sacredness.’ For me this suggests a sacred relationship between the temple and the home. Not only can we turn the doors of our homes to the temple, or the house of the Lord; we can make our homes a ‘house of the Lord.’
Gary E. Stevenson, “Sacred Homes, Sacred Temples,” Ensign, May 2009, 101
What an incredible prospect!
