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

Meet Allison – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Faithful

What word did you choose and why?


I chose the word Faithful. Faithful means taking the next step, even if it feels scary. I am faithfully accepting a new adventure this year, and aim to do so with grace and love. Faithful is continuing to build a life with my husband of 36 years, and being open to new adventures together.

   My world feels a little bit like it’s about to turn upside down. Starting over is scary, but this job opportunity for my husband was too good to pass up. He made a promise to me a long time ago that he would bring me back home – and through this change, he is. Leaving the community that I’ve built here will not be easy, but I am walking into this new chapter with the faith that it will be a good one. There is a whole other world waiting for me to walk into it, and while there might be moments where it feels hard or scary, it will be an adventure, and one that I get to take with my husband of 36 years. I have faith that we will make it a really good one. 



What is The BE Project?

Have you ever stopped to think about who or what you want to be?  Most often there is a word that drives you.  If you sit in the silence and really think about what type of person you want to be… there will be a word, sometimes more than one word, that will guide you along and push you to keep being a better version of yourself.  This photo project has become something that has touched my heart and hopefully those that have participated. I chose to shoot all of the images in black and white because I wanted the least amount of distractions.  Just the human and the word.   This project is the stories of some amazing people, their stories, and what these words mean to them.  Some have participated each of the 4 years we have done this, some are new each time.  It’s an amazing honor to follow along in their journey and document who they are becoming.

Want to read more stories from others in our community and their BE words?  Head over to the BE Project Page and read the stories of the amazing humans that have participated. 

I challenge you to find a word that resonates with you.  Who do you want to strive to be?  What word leads you day to day?  Join us in our project – what word will describe who you want to BE?
