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

Meet Beverly – This woman is small but mighty.  She has such a beautiful soul and I have been blessed to have her in my life in many different capacities over the years.

What word did you choose and why?


“I don’t’ know where my center is anymore.  My center used to be about my boys, myy world revolved around them.  With them living in Canada now, they are living their own lives and I need to find out who and what I am now.  I’ve explored things like volunteering at the animal sanctuary.  It’s not just church.  While all of these things are important to me, they aren’t the core of who I am and what is important to me.  I need to find out what says “this is me”. 




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?
