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

Gigi chooses Resilient


Why does the word Resilient resonate with you?

“I chose resilient for my personal life, but I also choose the word blessed because of my motherhood.  Those 4 kids are the reasons that keep me going. A part of the definition of resilient, you will find the word bulletproof.  That stuck out to me because my daddy was a police officer for 30 years and I have his bulletproof vest. Somedays I think I should probably grab that instead of high heels because I feel like I dodge bullets every day.  Booster Club, job, bills, dogs.. everything. As a mom and a woman we juggle so much and some days that is a struggle.  So with that bulletproof mentality I have to remain resilient.”

If you could give your daughters any advice that they carried with them the rest of their life, what would that be?

“No mountain high enough and they can accomplish anything.  But more specifically, take care of themselves.  We spend our lives as a mother and wife taking care of everyone else and you often disregard yourself and what you need.”

What would you tell your boys?

“Stay committed to Christ.  Be fully committed to the path they choose as fathers and husbands.  Always do what it takes to be invested in your relationships.  At the end of the day, show love.  I want them to have compassion.  I want them to be loyal and strong.”


If you knew you could make an impact on those in your life, what would you want that to be?

“I hope that every time I have a situation, I take a step back and treat you the way I would want you to treat me.”

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?
