Los Angeles, CA – ProjectInspired.com is quickly becoming the fastest growing Internet communities for Christian tween and teen girls.  The site’s incredible reach and one-on-one engagement has now captured the attention of KOHL’s department stores who are now offering the Project Inspired audience special discounts on the Kohls.com website.

 

Created by model and activist Nicole Weider, the site has been seeing an impressive growth over the past months, with almost 1,000 teens registering as Project Inspired Girls on the site in October.  Project Inspired has a highly engaged audience with a fast-growing membership of almost 10,000 members, 35,000 Facebook friends and 80,000 monthly site visits. Project Inspired Girls participate in Girl Talk chats, video chats and even a Project Inspired Book Club.

 

This month, the Project Inspired Book Club is featuring the book “God Loves Ugly” by Christa Black.  As a special feature, girls who participate this week in the website’s very popular Me Without Makeup section will automatically be entered to win a copy of “God Loves Ugly” as well as a CD from Christa.  Past books have included “Waiting for Mr. Right,” “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist” and “Pilgrim’s Progress.”

 

One of the qualities truly unique to the site is the extensive content that is created by the girls themselves.  Every Monday and Thursday, there is a live Bible Study hosted by girls who are active on the site.  Daily, girls are able to post photos of themselves into the Me Without Makeup campaign where they encourage each other and share positive statements about each other’s unadorned beauty.  New to the site is The Inspiration Wall, where girls can post photos, designs, quotes and images that capture what inspires the girls to live faith-filled lives.

 

In November, the readers will continue to take the reigns on content as well, as the site will be hosting a contest where girls are able to share their own relationship wisdom in articles meant to encourage, inspire and support each other.  Each week, a different user-created article will be chosen to post, and the writer will be awarded a $25 gift card to C28.com.

 

This community based, user-generated model has certainly met a much-desired need for this demographic. Teens are meeting the needs of each other, encouraging and inspiring their community to lead faith-filled lives of purpose.

 

“This is just what we were hoping ProjectInspired.com would become, a community of young women who support and encourage each other to live Godly lives of purpose,” explains Nicole. “Hearing directly from the girls has been inspirational to me as well.  We’re becoming a big family, and I’m honored and humbled to have so many sisters to share life with!”

New Children's Album Records a "First"

New Children’s Album Records a “First”

Nashville, TN -Cedarmont Kids® has announced the release of the 46th album in their multi-million-selling series.   The new CD, Gospel Sunday School Songs, features 15 Gospel classics and spirituals, including Free At Last , a song made famous in the iconic Martin Luther King, Jr. speech in 1963.  According to the label, this album marks the first time Free At Last has been featured on any children’s recording project.  Since its founding nearly 20 years ago, Cedarmont Kids has sold over 21 million albums and garnered numerous Platinum and Gold certifications for both its audio and video titles.  Mike and Sue Gay, owners of the Cedarmont label, say this new project was of special significance.

“We spent several years researching songs for this new release, looking for special ‘jewels’ from the African-American church,” says Sue. “We fell in love with songs like My Soul Is a Witness For My Lord, Guide My Feet, and The Welcome Table.  Then one day, we came across Free At Last and were so moved.  Immediately, we knew that it needed to be on the CD so that kids could learn this wonderful song.”

Gospel Sunday School Songs was recorded in Cedarmont’s state-of-the-art studio, using some of the most sought-after musicians in Nashville. “I think this is the best CD we’ve ever done,” says Mike. “The players were fantastic, and Sue directed the kids in the choir to sing with authenticity and energy. To top it off, we were blessed to work with some talented young soloists like MaKenzie McGuire and Quintavious Johnson.” Johnson, age 10 (pictured above), is a frequent soloist in his hometown of Franklin, Tennessee and recently won first place in the Fourth Annual Demi Lobo national talent contest held in Chicago. Johnson won first place in the Most Talented Under 12 competition, beating out 25 other finalists from nine states. “He blew us away with his talent and spirit,” Mike adds.

Cedarmont has built a broad customer base by focusing on well-known classic songs and selling their products at affordable prices. Their diversified catalog now features 46 CDs on five labels:
Cedamont Kids® Classics
Cedarmont Kids Gospel®
Cedarmont Niños®
Cedarmont Baby®
Cedarmont Worship for Kids®

Fifteen of these titles were Spanish releases. They have also developed a series of eleven DVDs, which are live-action, sing-along versions of the audio recordings.

During the production of Gospel Sunday School Songs, Mike shared a story his grandfather told him about growing up in rural southern Georgia where the family traveled to church in a horse-drawn wagon. During bad weather, they would often worship at an African-American church that was much closer to their home. They were always made to feel welcome, even during the tense years of segregation.

“It was not uncommon back then,” explains Mike, “for white families to visit African-American churches, even though it was a segregated society.  As a result of their fellowship, many wonderful spirituals were transplanted and became well-known in churches of all denominations.  We hope this new CD will enable people to share these special songs with today’s children so that there will be a renewed spirit of sharing and fellowship to a whole new generation.”
