For seventeen years, we have traveled throughout the United States, speaking about The Smith family, our conversions, and the importance of healing families. This has always been something we have felt led to do, a “no purse or script” personal mission which started out to be a summertime effort but then evolved into a full-time project for several years. We have never charged money for our firesides because what we do is not about earning money. However, destinations require travel expenses. Throughout the past seventeen years, we, along with help from friends, have covered expenses of car repair and tire replacement as well as food while on the road. Travel expenses for fireside speakers have always been paid on a ward or stake level, but due to recent guideline changes, this is no longer possible.
Due to requests that have been growing every year, we are determined to keep doing our firesides in an effort to help families heal. We live in a time that is vital where the family is concerned, and it is important that families understand the role of the Atonement and the pure love of Christ in the healing process.
In order to help fund our fireside travels, we have created a patreon page. Patreon is a wonderful platform that allows creators to seek funding for their efforts. For as little as $3 a month, you can help us continue to heal the ties that bind our families together. We have a number of thank you gifts for all of our patrons in appreciation for their help.

If you’d rather make a one time donation, that would also be appreciated. You may do so by clicking the donation button below.
Thank you for your support. We couldn’t keep going without you!
