In a World Where You Can BE Anything… What will you choose?

Melissa chooses Fearless

Why does the word Fearless resonate with you?

“I chose the word fearless because that is the stage of life that I am in.   I was not fearless for a long while.  I went thru a stage of learning intellectually through the scriptures and the Holy Spirit speaking to me the importance of putting aside fear and rejecting fear and living a life in the Spirit, which is Love.  Now I am doing that and it is a whole new life and I love it.  One example of being fearless is that I had the courage to ask my company for an extended vacation time.  I want to travel to Israel and work and help the Jews in the vineyard and come back refreshed and rejuvenated. I could never do that in the normal two weeks.  They said yes!  It wasn’t as hard to ask for what I need.  In general, I am asking more for things that the Spirit is placing in my heart and learning to really walk in the Spirit by bearing fearless.”

If you could go back and talk to 15 year old Melissa, what would you tell her?

“Ohhh, you are well loved by your Daddy in Heaven.  He is expecting you to keep your legs shut.”

The BE Necklace Line – created by Woolard’s Custom Jewelers

In 2016, I partnered with a good friend of mine and Woolard’s Custom Jewelers in Burleson, TX  to create a necklace line.  The idea and intent behind these necklaces was to be a gentle reminder of you we are striving to be, day in and day out.  We often forget that beyond all of that, all of the day to day responsibilities and challenges… we are strong, beautiful, inspiring and so many other things.  We are greater than what we feel every day. To remember that you are capable of great things. If you could BE anything… what would you BE?  The stories you are reading here on the blog are to celebrate women and learn more about why they have chosen the words that resonate with them.

For more information on purchasing a necklace, please visit Woolard’s Custom Jewelers online store.

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?
