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 also allows us a means by which to share songs that the Lord gives us that we hope will bless others.  It is very much a work in progress;  you’ll note that the middle name is “Homemade”.  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).

        We said at one point that we hoped to put the whole Bible to song on this site.  However, we recently learned of another site that is farther along on that journey so we encourage you to check them out as well.  That site is ScriptureSinger.com.  We hope to work with them in this goal.  If you have songs of your own, we encourage you to share them with them. 

        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 about sharing this site with others as it is our desire that it serves not only to connect people with God's Word, but with God Himself.

Fear Not

The Smith Family and Friends

This album contains songs related to trusting God, especially in the midst of persecution which is certainly ramping up against Christians lately, even in the United States. The artwork on the cover was done by Tirzah Joy Smith (age 7). A butterfly seems a fitting symbol of trusting God since they go through great changes and fly at great heights but always seem to be at peace.

Spiritual Warfare

The Smith Family

This "album" contains songs about spiritual warfare. The cover artwork is a drawing I (then Paula Thorson) did in 2002 of a photograph taken of my dad around 1941 when he was about four years old.

The Smith Family Singers

This "album" contains Scripture songs and Christian songs either directly or indirectly related to healing. In a day and age when there is a great deal of emphasis being placed on health, it is good to remember who made us, who gives us wisdom regarding maintaining our health, and who has the power to overcome sickness and death. I believe that simply spending time in God's Word (even listening to it being sung) can heal both the mind and the body.

In this video we share the story behind the song "Your Life Matters".  We think it is an important message for the world today since life is being devalued more and more all the time.
