Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”

— Colossians 3:16

Welcome to our website!   

          His Homemade Hymnal is a labor of love created by the Todd Smith Family.  Our main goal is for this to be a resource to facilitate God’s people in meditating on His Word.   It is very much a work in progress;  you’ll note that the middle name is “Homemade”.  Ultimately we’d like to put the entire Bible to music (with the help of others in the body of Christ of course).  We are neither theologians nor professional musicians.  However, we are children of God and lovers of Jesus Christ.  We offer this meager gift, trusting that our Heavenly Father will multiply it for His glory much as He did the loaves and fish.  May it assist in feeding those who are hungry for the truth in this day of famine.  We've given the copyright of all of the material produced by our family to the Holy Spirit so you are welcome to use it as He leads you (see copyright and usage for more details).

        If you scroll down you can read some of our blogs largely about the songs.  It is really more of an online journal for our family, but others are welcome to get a glimpse of God's faithfulness in our lives as well.

          We publish a periodic newsletter to let people know what has been uploaded recently.  We encourage you to pray about signing up.  We will not give, sell, or trade your e-mail address (except under great duress or perhaps for large amounts of chocolate...j/k...really, we're joking...really....).  Also, please pray before sharing any of this content with anyone else as it is our desire that it serves not only to connect people with God's Word, but with God Himself.

In January of 2010 when the twins were two, they just decided to sing "Happy Birthday" one day so I caught it on video. It is quite short as it didn't take long for them to get distracted. Funny thing about two-year-olds.
