The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?

Meet Bud.  This fella – after sitting and talking with him – I quickly realized that I could have spent all day talking to him.  He is one of those people that you just want to learn more about and share life with.

What word did you choose and why?


It kinda came out of nowhere.  This entire year has been about getting back to me.  I needed to quit holding on to stuff.  Forgiveness needed to be about forgiving myself of who i used to be. Part of forgiving myself, was seeing some changes in my father.  

How did you decide that Forgiveness was where your focus needed to be?

Getting back into church.Being a part of the church and the family that it is, has made a huge difference.  I love the old me, because he’s not afraid of anything – but i hate the way it makes me feel.  I had to take control of myself. My body. My health.  To take care of the others in my life, i needed to get myself to a healthy point.




The BE Project with Beautiful Evolutions Photography

The BE Project was created in 2016.  Two crazy girls had an idea and it came to life on a napkin at lunch one day. They partnered with a local jeweler, Woolards Custom Jewelry and a beautiful necklace was created.  What began as a marketing campaign turned in to an annual photo project that has allowed people to share a word that is important to them and why that word guides them.  Each year, in January, the project opens back up for registrations.  One week is dedicated to photographing the incredible people that want to join us.  All images are black and white to keep from any distractions.  Just the human and their word.

Head over to THE BE Project page read some of the incredible stories that have been shared with us.
