Meet Gina


Brian and I have been married for almost 34 years. We met when I was in college and Brian was in seminary. When we first met, Brian told me he was “here to study, NOT date!” A few months later we began dating and 2 years later we were married! We are now enjoying “the empty nest” season and love being able to spend more time together!

My 2 kids are grown and married and they both live close to me, right outside of Washington DC. I am so thankful that we are able to see each other on a regular basis. The transition from having kids at home to them marrying and becoming their own family unit has been a learning process, one I am still in. I haven’t done things perfectly but they have been very patient with me and we have gotten into a good rhythm. We are continuing to learn how we fit into each other’s lives.

I love coming alongside others, young and old, to help them find strength in God (1 Samuel 23:16), to proclaim God’s faithfulness (Psalms 89:1), to encourage one another (1 Thessalonians 5:11), to help each other persevere, one day at a time, and find biblical joy (Hebrews 12:2), and to learn from each other (1 Corinthians 11:1)!

I spend most of my time over at IG. I’d love for you to come hang out and share daily life with me at _ginalsmith_!
