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

Meet Tamara – Yall this little firecracker is so much fun!

What word did you choose and why?


I am tired of being fearful of success. Sometimes you get scared of success and you back off a little bit. Of course we are fearful of what others think and don’t want to hear someone tell you no. I just need to get out there and do it.

I had an epiphany on a zoom call. Just get over it and do it. I went and grabbed my bible and looked up fear in the back. Psalms 23:4 is the scripture that I first came to. “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

My goal this year is to push past fear and become the powerful woman I know that I am.




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?
