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

Meet Barbara – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Serving

What word did you choose and why?


My goal this year is to serve wherever God needs me. Whether that is me personally, or together with my husband. We have enough contacts where we can almost always help others. I want to be able to help anyone that brings me a need.

I want to serve God better. I want to do more.

Last year, life changed for me. My husband had a stroke and I sat there and prayed. God answered my prayers. He’s answered my prayers for my kids many times over. I’ve just felt this calling that I need to do more. Not just for my family, but for my community. I just felt God pulling at my heart. He said, I’ve given you the things you’ve asked for, now I need you to be the person I designed you to be.

What would Barbara today tell a younger Barbara?

Love people more. Especially the ones you won’t have forever. Always let God lead you instead of you trying to force the path.


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.
