"One thing I learned from going out hiking is we saw a lot of old, regular, broken sticks. But we picked them up. We worked together, peeling off the bark, and carving them, and made them useful.
We compared ourselves to the hiking sticks, because when we first come to MCS, we see ourselves as alone, weak and ugly. But as we peeled off the bark and layers, we made them smooth and more useful. Just like us, we peeled off our problems when we talk about our feelings with our staff or friends, and we feel better and good looking. Then we sand the sticks to make them smoother, just like we are learning social skills and coping skills to help us feel more secure. Then we stain and protect the stick with varnish to make it shine and look good, kind of like Church teaches us about God to protect us so we can go out in the real world and live our lives and feel safer. We learned lots of good things to keep us safe."
