Nicole Weider shares her personal story in a free e-book titled
INTO THE LIGHT: My Journey from the Glare of Hollywood to the Glow of God’s Love

Los Angeles, CA – Since its inception in 2011, has now become the largest online community for young women of faith. Project Inspired founder Nicole Weider is releasing her memoir and is giving it exclusively to the Project Inspired members for free.

INTO THE LIGHT: My Journey from the Glare of Hollywood to the Glow of God’s Love, chronicles Weider’s journey from her early childhood in Oregon, to moving to Mexico and Guatemala, to spending her critical teenage years growing up too quickly as a rising starlet in Hollywood. While she achieved accolades as a lingerie model, Weider’s life took a dark turn. Her self-esteem slowly eroded as agents told her that she needed to lose weight and that her skin wasn’t clear enough, and as photographers showed her how they manipulate photos to fix the flaws of the most beautiful women in the world. After experiencing a period of deep depression, Weider opened herself up to God. And everything changed.

Weider is now dedicated to helping and inspiring young women to cultivate purposeful and God-driven lives. She created to encourage discussion on culture and Christianity, and to provide a safe place for young women to ask questions, mentor each other and discover positive influences. INTO THE LIGHT chronicles her journey and hopes to encourage and inspire her readers to examine their own path and consider the decisions and voices that are influencing their lives. Nicole aims to be the positive role model she never had while growing up and embarking on a career in modeling and entertainment.
Project Inspired has attracted a unique community of young women who actively participate in the conversation on how to live their lives as beautiful women of God.
