    Yes, there are some teenagers that still write letters. I'm surprised that Tiffany Gee Lewis doesn't have some that she knows of for certain in her family. I would hope that there are many good families that have letter writing teenagers.
    One thing that I would add is that letters that are actually written, not typed, are even more intimate and worthy of preserving as a tradition.

    This was a great article!

    Though I kept a personal journal on my mission, my weekly emails to my family at the time now serve as a second journal! I love to re-read those letters since a lot of mission memories come back.

    I also intend to share/read these letters to my children as well -- for the same reason mentioned in the article: "For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God" (2 Nephi 25:23).
