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

Meet Kristi – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Grateful

What word did you choose and why?


This year I chose the word Grateful, because I am. I am so grateful for the life that I have. I am so grateful for what the Lord has blessed me with. I want to continue living gratefully, and encourage my kids to always do the same.

            I am just so grateful for the life that I have, and everything that the Lord has blessed me with. I’m grateful for my healthy kids who get to pursue their dreams. I’m grateful for how hard my husband works to give us everything he can, and so grateful that we’ve been able to work hard and give our kids every tool at our disposal to really help them reach for what they want in this life.

If you could go back and talk to a younger version of yourself, what would you say?

            If I could go back and talk to younger me, I’d encourage her to be more patient, and remember that everything happens for a reason, and that it happens in God’s timing, not my own. One piece of advice I hope my kids always carry with them? To be grateful, patient, and to always chase their dreams. 




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.
