Colton's back from EFY (Especially For Youth - a conference for 14-18 years old in our church. He attended the conference in Provo, UT (at BYU) and we're so happy to have him home! He and Asher will be leaving around 1am tomorrow to drive to Havasupai for a three day adventure. I thought it would be a treat to hear from Colton himself about his EFY experience. Take it away, Colton!
Well, here I go! EFY (Especially For Youth in acronym form) was the best week of my summer so far. With a $500 (really $450, but close enough, Colton) entry fee, I was really speculating whether or not this would be an intelligent way for my parents and I to spend our hard-earned money. I'm happy to say that it wasn't just a good way to spend $500, but the BEST way to spend it that I've experienced thus far. If any of you are even thinking about going to EFY, DO IT!!!!!! This place has the three G's: Girls, the Gospel, and Great food. It's just pure epicness, and they make church related stuff actually fun. I can't really do justice to how awesome this camp was. My testimony grew literally from an acorn to an oak tree, and I knew that what we were doing was the right thing through confirmation from the Spirit. Oh man, EFY was great. So yeah...just send your kids as long as they're fourteen or up, because I guarantee you that it is the best thing to do over summer break. Oh, and Lagoon Amusement Park was sweet as well...just sayin'.
Well, there you have it - Colton's endorsement of EFY. We were not paid for our endorsement....although...that's a great idea!

I love the guest commentary, and especially that he included 'girls' in his 3 G's. Your little boy is growing up. ;) Glad he had so much fun, it sounds amazing! xoxo -H

Fun! I'm glad that I'm spending my $500 wisely for Brianna to go in a few weeks. Thanks for the observations. :)
