    Team Project Inspired
    We here at Project Inspired want to guide and inspire teen girls to be true to themselves and to God. We want to show young girls how to be people of value and confidence – how to be your own best selves – through leading a Christian life. Who are we? We're a team of girls, like you. We edit the site, we post to social media, we hang out in the chat rooms and forums. We talk with you, we listen to you, and we love you!


    1. I would like to spend a day learning from Jesus himself. I would love to have been one of the people in the crowd when he was teaching. I would like to hear the words come straight out of my saviors mouth! If I read my bible everyday, I can learn from Jesus! If I had to pick someone else, I would say Mike Donehey from Tenth Avenue North. He is very wise! I love to watch his video journals!

    2. If I could spend a day learning from any living person, it would be Britt Nicole. She is so inspiring, and she seems to be so confident in who she is. I want to more confident, and I think that she is one of the best people to learn that from 🙂

    3. I would love to spend a day learning from Brandon Heath. His music is inspiring and he has some great outtakes on life and he does not care what other people think so he would be the best person to learn from 🙂

    4. If I could spend a day learning from any living person it would be Mark Hall, the lead singer of Casting Crowns. I think he could teach me so much about faith, God, Jesus, and what it is like to walk the Christian walk. Music inspires me and thee music along with MIKESCHAIR has inspired me so much. I went through a time when all of my friends just left me and I was alone with my one true friend I found. I considered killing myself. “Someone worth Dying For” helped me a lot because I thought, if I am so special that Jesus died for me, then it would be selfish to die now and not spread the word about his majesty, glory, and Grace. MIKESCHAIR really helped me through the lowest point in my life so far

    5. If I could spend a day learning from someone, I would have to choose Britt Nichole, hands-down! Music is what speaks to me like nothing else can. If I’m having a bad day or feel like nothing is going right, I turn on some of her music and let everything float away. I relate so much to her music and realize that I’m not alone and other people are dealing with the same problems I am. I also love to sing and Britt Nichole is my favorite vocalist! She could teach me so much about music and how to walk straight on God’s path. I also love MIKESCHAIR. I saw them in concert in a church in southwest PA and it is still my favorite concert to this date! I only wish I could have stayed a little long so I meet them after the concert.

    6. If I could spend a day learning from anyone, I would spend it with Karen Kingsbury 🙂 She is a great author. My Favorite actually 🙂 My favorite book she has written is “The Chance”. It’s an amazing love story and I read it in about one week 🙂 She is seriously one of the best Christian authors out there 🙂

    7. I would want to spend the day with Colton Dixon. I definitely feel like singing professionally is going to play a huge part in my future. Colton has dealt with all the media and secular world, and has still stayed strong and bold in Christ. I think I would learn ALOT from him, and it would just be fun:)

    8. Wow that’s a hard one there is so many people that inspire me but I think it whould be Bethany Hamilton to have gone through what she did and never loes her faith and use what happened to reach out to others and tell them about God and then to still surf and achieve her dream of becoming a pro surfer she is truly an inspiration :-).

    9. Definetely Britt Nicole! She is a huge inspiration to me and she has such a huge impact in my life! I love seing her love for God and how she encourages other people to fnd their identity in Christ and not in wordly things! She is incredibly beautiful inside out and I can learn so much from her!!

    10. I would love to spend a day learning from John MaCarthur! I would love to learn from him because he is blessed by God in wisdom! Not only this, but he’s such a Godly man who strive to learn everything he can! But, he doesn’t just keep it to himself, but he shares is with everyone! It would deb so mind blowing but amazing to sit down and have a Theological decision with him!!

    11. I would really love to meet Bethany Hamilton. I have read her book and seen her movie, and they have been such an inspiration. Her love for God is so apparent, and the fact that she went through so much, and it only brought her closer to God is amazing.

    12. Lauren DeMoss! I follow her on Twitter and Instagram. She posts really great stuff for teen/young adult Christian women.. I feel like we could talk about a lot of things and relate. She could also probably teach me things I don’t know. I admire her strong morals and confidence. Also her amazing love for God and her expression through the talents he has given her.

    13. Don Brewster! He is the founder of Agape International Missions, him and his wife fight human trafficking in Cambodia. I would love to learn how to counsel those rescued from slavery, and to get involved with setting the captives free.

    14. I really admire and look up to Jennifer Lawrence. She is my favorite celebrity, and I would love to spend a day with her because of her amazing values! She finds modest to be hottest, and I find it amazing that she as a celebrity can say that!

    15. I would love to spend the day with Esther from the Bible! When I was a young child, her story was always my favorite because it was one of the more popular stories about a woman in the Bible making a huge difference and following God’s plan for her. I feel she would have so much to teach me, but I’m hoping God would give her the ability to speak and understand English so I could understand her. 🙂

    16. The missionary Katie Davis is the person I would like to spend the day with! I read her book, Kisses for Katie, and she has such a heart for God! Her love for others is incredible, and I would like to talk to her about her ministry and her love for the Ugandan people! I would love to spend a whole a month or whole year with me, learning and serving with her!
