The Gaither's: Joplin Smile Couple

I enjoyed EVERY Joplin Smile session, but the Gaither's left a pretty big impression on me.  Why?  Well, first and foremost, I don't have any grandparents still living and this couple displayed that warm and fuzzy feeling and I just enjoyed the time spent with them.  As we were wrapping up the session, I told them  that for their last picture, I wanted them to jump in the air on the count of three.   {I am busting up typing this and replaying that moment over in my mind}  Well….we all know that didn't happen, but we sure enjoyed the laugh!  As they shared their story with me, it was touching to hear how they have been blessed by others….strangers who donated money, time, labor and the list could go on to build their home again.   They are hoping to be in their new home by Christmas and I'm believing with them for that!  Their faith is strong and it was evident that throughout this journey,  they never lost hope in knowing that one day they would be back in a home they could call their own again!  Thank you Jan and Jim!  It was such a pleasure!


  1. It was an incredible session! They loved and laughed immeasurably. May God continue to bless their journey!
