7- You know who One Direction is and actually have one of their songs on your I-pod.

 6- One weekend a year you become Erica for the Girls’ retreat.

5- Your favorite bible verse is “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” because sometimes you have to say it over and over; before, during, and or after a youth event!

 4- Your hotel room on the trip stinks because the boys in your room won’t shower.

1- You love your kids, your mentors, and your parents, and you can’t picture yourself doing any shing else! (any shing else is an ASP joke, it's not spelled wrong)
