I am a big Taylor Swift fangirl and am not ashamed to admit it. As a writer, I completely appreciate her lyrics and how she has become a voice for today’s teenage experience.

So when I was asked to lead a group of 11th and 12th grade girls for a weekend through small group bible study, community-wide worship services, recreational fun, AND a video contest, I wanted to do something completely girly and silly – and include as much footage as possible of the teens who make my LIFE so FUN. The resounding theme of my girls’ small group discussions was the issue of choosing the right college and careers and wanting to please the heart of God by following where He is leading. We did a lot of praying over these topics… and then we just had to put aside the worries and SING.

“You know what would be so great? If we could just be 22 years old and already be on the other side of these big decisions…”

That was the line that started it all.

If you’re a Taylor Swift fan-or just a fan of being a girl-or just really want to see some good-old fashioned fun among teens, then you HAVE to watch this video. (And especially don’t miss the surprise 3/4 of the way through the song… You will find some pretty cool church pastors who agreed to do a cameo in this particular video. They forever sealed themselves in the hearts of these girls for being so awesome!!)

Feel free to sing along.
