    Hi girlies! Don’t you just LOVE love stories?  As the saying goes, love makes the world go ’round. Not just romantic love, but ALL types of love. The thing about love is that it can take so many different forms–love for a friend, for a parent, for a sibling, for a husband or boyfriend, and perhaps the most powerful of all, love for God.

    So, we are celebrating LOVE here on Project Inspired! Share your real-life love story and enter to win one of 15 copies of the new book Get Lost by Dannah Gresh. Get Lost is all about not obsessing over boys or the fact that you don’t have a boyfriend, and getting lost in God instead. And if you get lost in God, a worthy man will eventually find you there.

    Share your real-life love story below to enter the giveaway. Don’t have a love story of your own, but are inspired by how your parents met, or how your best friend found God? We want to read that, too! We will also publish some of your submissions on Project Inspired, so keep checking back to see if yours is chosen! Good luck!


    The winners will be chosen on April 15.

    1. As a young age until 10 I was always in and out of foster care. My mother never really cared for her four children. Growing up with my mother was not easy. I had to attend school, take care of my brothers and learn how to pay the bills. My father died when I was five years old. I really never met or remember him either. When I was 10 years old my mother left me and one of my youngest brother home alone. It was around midnight when I got up to get something to drink. When I saw that my mother’s door was open and no one was in there. My brother woke up looking for me shortly afterwards. When we found each other, we both went back to sleep together. The morning of my mother’s so called disappearance my case worker came to check on us. Next thing I know I was in a permanent foster home and my brother was with his adopted father. I never met God until I was 13 years old. My current foster parents let me decided who I wanted to believe.
      Through middle and high school I was always in and out with God. I always wanted to keep my past with my present. His love for me was not enough until I was 19 in high school. When I was 19 my parents let me to a youth event called acquire the fire. When I came back from the trip, after being baptized, and making new friends I started to change. When I learned I was sick from the doctor and my current medication was not working for my eyes, they wanted to try chemo. I started screaming and saying no. It took me one year to finally say yes to doing what the doctors wanted because I wanted to scream all I wanted at God. Why you do this? Why you do that?
      After I finally agreed with the doctors and told many people who were willing to pray about it; I was willing to give it a try. After 4 months I was in remission again and so in love with God. During the 4 months of in and out chemo I was still allowed to go to youth group when I was healthy enough. The youth pastor gave us an activity one time about prayer journals. We all had to take one and write our own prayers. The way we did this was we all took a colored journal and sat anywhere in the room and write. There was also music playing and sometimes he would pass out papers with questions to help get us started. I never used the questions. I just wrote prayers base on the days I was in the hospital getting chemo. Today I still have that journal and I am off of chemo. I have also graduated from College and currently living on my own. I never saw my biological mother again but my foster parents are my real parents and I believe that was God’s present to me. “Love”

    2. My love story is about my mom.

      when I was 11 my dad beat my 4 year old brother almost to death, I was home babysitting him, and my dad got mad and took it out on him. After my dad was done hurting him, I sat there and watched my baby brother twitch and cry.. Not long after that chilled protected service made my mom leave him, or they would take us away. My mom left with no money and 4 kids. For about a year we lived in homeless shelter, and about 6 months we lived in our minivan, but finely my mom got a place for us to live. She then started college at a community college, and got her associate degree, and moved on to a college called Madonna. She’s going to school to be a teacher for special ed children because 3 of her kids are special ed. My mom is in 6 classes a week, works fulltime, and home schools us. There are not many schools around where I live that will teach kids with our learning disabilities, so my mom is doing it her self. She works all day, goes to school in the evening, and makes our school work at night. She’s still doing it by her self. I moved out about 3 months ago, and I only understand a fraction of what she did 7 years ago. So thank you mom, you have still yet to be recognized by anyone, so today, I recognize you for what you do for me.

      my love story is about a women that takes risks that no one ever did for me.

    3. My love story is about my father. When I was a child, he worked at a job that kept him away from his family almost constintly. He would go to work at 9 at night, and travel to a job 2 hours away. He would then work all night, drive home an additional 2 hours, and then come home at 9 in the morning, only to sleep all day. It was a horrible, visious routine. Nevertheless, my father worked hard to provide for me, my mother, and my 5 younger siblings. He followed the Lord and never complained about his hardships. When I was 10, my dad’s company shut down, which proved to be a blessing in disguise. In the months my dad went without a job, he continued giving faithfuly to the church, tithe and offering, and helped out around the house with my mom. During that time, the Lord supplied the means for us to buy a huge house, that had enough more than enough space for our personal “Brady Bunch.” Then, my dad got offered a high paying job at a company, and money just started puoring in. The reason for me saying all this is that no matter if we were in the poor house or living on easy street, my dad was faithful to the Lord, faithful to my mom, and faithful to me. When I was in elementry school and got bullied, my dad was the one who helped me overcome my sadness. He takes me out on “dates” to show me how a true man should act. He’s given me the love that he almost never recieved from his dad. I love my father, David, for helping create our own “love story.”
