We are Chris and Melissa Smith, the parents of 5 children. We have been married for 15 years, but have only been friends for the last 10 of those years. 😉 After being separated and nearly divorced, we discovered that in order to create the life that we wanted it would require us to take a real stand for ourselves and each other.
We decided that we weren’t just going to stay together and “make it work.” We were going to create the life and family that we both dreamed of.
What that has evolved into is a massive passion to support other families to take a stand by planting their families flag, and defining what they stand for. We have realized that just like the strongest companies, the strongest families define what they are creating and make their home one with a clear culture, and their own Family Brand.
This intentionality creates an unbelievable difference and confidence in each individual, family, and ultimately we believe, in the world! One of our favorite questions to ask parents is “what do you want to be known for as a family?”
We’d love to hear your answers!

Your family is your greatest source of love, joyand connection.
It is the tie that binds your hearts together.
Strengthening those ties is what the Family Brand is all about.
