What Girls Have To Say
"Thank you for believing in me when I didn't believe
in myself. Thank you for not giving up on me ever. You
have supported me through some very rough times. I
expect to see you at my college graduation. And most of
all thank you for helping me find the way to a happier

"Thank you for showing me a new path to a new life.
Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me…Kolob
Canyon changed my life and I’ll never forget any of
"If it weren’t for people like you there
wouldn’t be grateful people like me! Thanks for being my
part-time Mom. I am so grateful for all the time and
effort you put into your job. It shows you really care
"Thank you for helping to make my stay at the ranch
an enjoyable experience for me. I will never forget all
that I have learned and gained at Kolob Canyon. I will
also never forget all of the special relationships I
have developed with so many extraordinary people and
young women. Thank you for helping me to become the
person I am today. I love you very much!"
"You supported me the whole way through and I know I
was difficult at times. You never gave up on me and
helped me change into the wonderful stable and amazing
girl that I am today. It's been a long, long journey and
has been tough at times but every second has been well
worth it. I've accomplished so much and you've really
helped me become what I was always was afraid to. I am
so looking forward to my future now and I know I'm way
ready for it.
Thanks for your support of sticking by me at my lowest
times, and reaching the highest peak of things with me.
Thanks for laughing and crying with me."
"So many times when I was crying or upset you just
held on to me and let me cry and showed me that you
cared. Many times all I needed was a hug and someone to
show me that they loved me and you were always there to
do that. You never judged me on my mistakes or bad
choices; you just helped me see where I could go from
where I was. In treatment team you always made sure to
give me positive feedback instead of just the negative
and it always helped me to hear the negative
better...Thank you for everything and more."
Kolob Canyon changed my life. I wasn't doing drugs or
anything like that - or so I thought. Actually (as Kolob
helped me realize) I was doing things like that just not
as visible to an untrained eye (fortunately Kolob staff
has lots of trained eyes). Kolob helped me realize a lot
negative things and taught me how I could change them
but it also taught me a lot of positive things and how
to acknowledge them.
Towards the end (even though there was a lot going on
with my life and my family) the hardest thing for me to
do was to leave Kolob and my new family and home at
Kolob. My life is great now and I did it. But I don't
know if I could have without the help of everyone at Kolob Canyon.
