An exciting idea. You could start locally by checking out all of your area's publications, including religious ones if you are so inclined. Many of them focus on positive life changes, as do those publications that focus on the family. If you find an appropriate one (after studying several issues), send the editor a query letter proposing a series of "X" number of profiles, one weekly or monthly perhaps. Have your articles and interviews finished beforehand because you may be asked to submit multiple or all articles at one time.
Also check the invaluable research guide, Writer's Market, at the library or bookstore (there is an online version but I find it more valuable to be able hold the book and to be able to take it with me). There can be found listings under "Family" and other relevant topics for your project with guidelines, prices paid, submission rules, etc.
Don't forget to ask local publications for writer's guidelines. It is a good idea to begin a folder for each newspaper and magazine with guidelines, submissions, published articles, etc.
May you have much success. Please keep us updated.
