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

Meet Lori – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Serenity

What word did you choose and why?


I chose the word Serenity. God calls us to be calm, untroubled, and peaceful. No matter what comes my way, I aim to stop worrying about it and accept the Lord’s Peace. I know that I am who He says I am, and nothing that comes my way in this life can change that.

 I don’t want to make a resolution, I want to create actual change in my life, so this year I am focusing on the word Serenity. I’ve really taken the Serenity Prayer to heart, and I want to focus on living that truth out in my daily life. I am a worrier by nature, but I no longer want to lose my Peace, because that Peace comes from the Lord. He tells us that we should be calm, untroubled, and peaceful. So I want to put those things into practice. 


What is something you hope you accomplish by the end of the year?

            By the end of this year I hope that I’ve really allowed serenity and the Serenity Prayer to sink into every aspect of my life. I hope that I’ve let the worrying go, and that I’ve really embodied the belief that I am who He says I am. 




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.
