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

Meet Kristy – I think her story will resonate with many women.  She has a desire to be better.  As women, we constantly strive for more.  One of the greatest things we can do for ourselves is recognize the areas we want to work on and take the steps to get there.

What word did you choose and why?


I want to be better in a bunch of different ways.  I want to be a better mom.  I see things that I have improved on – but I want to be better for her.  I want to be a better listener.  I want to be a better wife.  I can see the challenges that I need to overcome.  There are a lot of things at home that I can be better at.

I accepted a new position at work and it has forced me to step up and become a better person at work and stronger.

I want to be better to myself.  I recognize that to be better in these areas, I need to be able to take care of myself along the way.

As Madison continues to get older, I want to be the best version of her I can be so that she grows to the best version she can be.





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?
