Paula Hendricks lives in southwest Michigan where she no longer tries to catch guys' attention by swallowing live goldfish, arm wrestling, and jumping down flights of stairs. Instead, she blogs for teen girls and women by day and journals her adventures by night. Meanwhile, she's still on the hunt for the perfect hiding place for her 30+ journals. Her first book, Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl, will be released September 2013.
Lindsey Wagstaffe's greatest passion is to see the glory of Christ, cherish Him unreservedly, and assist others in doing the same. She treasures the family and church God has blessed her with, and lives outside of San Francisco with her parents and two younger sisters.
After a brief experience in the modeling industry, Bethany’s eyes were opened to how self-absorbed and lost her generation of young women really are. She and her older sister were inspired to start a blog (BairdSisters.com) and are in the process of writing a book titled Models Wanted: Physical Beauty Not Required. Their passion is to help girls find God’s truth about beauty and womanhood and the freedom that comes from living a radically different life for Christ.
Deanna Martin is a part Canadian, part American staff kid at Life Action Ministries. She is an ordinary high school girl whose life has been radically changed by our awesome God. She loves being with her family members in Christ. She likes to pretend she's a speed skater, a crazy good musician, and a ballerina. Some say she was born in the wrong century. Though she has an appreciation for just about anything vintage, she believes God has placed her in this place in time as a part of His sovereign plan. By the grace of God, each day is a journey of reflecting Christ as she fixes her eyes on Him—the author and perfecter of our faith.
Lina loves Jesus and writing, and books and dreaming. She's an ER doctor who leads women at Harvest Bible Chapel. You can find Lina at LivingWithPower.org where she blogs daily or on Twitter @linamay.

Dannah Gresh is completely in love with her chocolate labradoodle, Stormie. (But just for the record, she doesn't like dog kisses.) She's been married to Bob for twenty years and loves that he brings her "freshly sharpened bouquets of pencils." She's the mom to liesyoungwomenbelieve.com blogger Lexi, as well as Autumn and Rob.

Hannah Farver is an eighteen year old speaker, writer and blogger. In 2005, she co-founded a website for young women called Beauty from the Heart. The fledgling site expanded rapidly, becoming one of the most popular websites of its kind on the net for Christian young ladies.

In her "spare" time, Hannah enjoys singing old musical numbers, swing dancing, spending time with friends and family, and attempting to brew the perfect cup of chai. She lives outside Dallas, Texas with her parents, brother and two sisters.
