    Q&A: Nicole Weider on “Into the Light,” Life with Christ and More!

    For the last two years, Project Inspired Founder Nicole Weider has been working hard to take a look at her past in the upcoming book Into the Light: From the Glare of Hollywood to the Glow of God’s Love. Nicole hopes that after reading her story, girls everywhere will find hope and discover just how much God loves them.

    Natalie Gillespie, who worked with Nicole to bring out the best in her story, asked Nicole how she feels about Into the Light, now that it is about to be released.

    Natalie: Nicole, in Into the Light, you tell your story so gracefully and with so much honesty. How do you feel when you read the whole book now that it’s finished?

    Nicole: I love it! It makes me cry every time I read it. I’m amazed at everything I went through. I marvel at how I was able to survive all those things. It’s incredible how God saved me from my bad choices and self-destruction and how He really was there with me the whole time.

    Natalie: What do you want readers to take away from Into the Light? What do you want them to know about you, about God, about life?

    Nicole: I want my readers to understand that no matter what situation you are in, God has a plan for you. And it’s a better plan than anything you could ever have for yourself. I want them to know that despite everything I went through, I still have my fighter spirit. You can keep fighting to make the right choices and find a relationship with God, too. Just trust in Him, because He knows the right path for you.

    Natalie: What’s the hardest part of thinking back on those difficult times before you knew Christ?

    Nicole: When I think back to how alone I felt and how much of a mess my life was, that’s when I cry. I remember feeling afraid, like I didn’t have anyone to rely on. All those memories came flooding back when I wrote this book. When I look at my life now, my wonderful husband, Eric, and our gorgeous son, Elijah, it’s hard to believe that girl was me.

    Natalie: Was it fun to write a book?

    Nicole: We had so much fun together, didn’t we? It was like a party, in some ways, rediscovering not just the pain, but some of the treasures in my pink suitcase. I hadn’t opened it in years. And going back to my high school campus, driving by the houses where I used to live. It was really eye-opening, but it was definitely fun!
