What is Brynne's Smiles?

Brynne’s Smiles is an organization designed to support families and individuals in need. Those we help will not necessarily have to have a medical need. We know there are many people with varying types of needs and we want to help, especially in prayer.

Our inspiration is the always present smile of our daughter Brynne AND the overwhelming support we have received while we are searching for a name and cure for her disease. The Jon Jon fund is named for our dear friend Jonathan McDonald who lost his life in a car accident while on duty as a Texas DPS Trooper. We want to carry on his sweet sharing spirit and spread the love of Christ as we share S.M.I.L.E.S. Join with us as we Share More In Life's Everyday Struggles!

We ask for your prayers that we will share the love of Christ in everything we have the opportunity to do through Brynne's Smiles. We also need you to bring us needs we can help with and yes, we'll accept your donations too!

Brynne’s Smiles was started in the spring of 2011 by Maggie Guthrie and Craig Bigham with the proceeds donated by the Trooper McDonald Memorial Race. Because of the blessings, generosity, support and most importantly, prayers, Brynne's family has received since 2008, they wanted to pay it forward and find a way to help others. Brynne's Smiles is their way of spreading the love of Christ and supporting other families with similar struggles. Their struggles began with the enormous amount of medical bills relating to our daughter Brynne’s rare genetic disorder and the requirement of one income to be given up to stay home to take of her medical needs.  Through all of the trials since Brynne’s birth in 2008, Brynne's family has seen many families they have wanted to help but were not able to do so by themselves.

The foundation of Brynne’s Smiles is based on 1 Peter 4:10 which says “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
The focus of Brynne’s Smiles is to allow families and individuals to help other families and individuals who are struggling with everyday needs. An opportunity to SMILE will be presented each month through our website at www.brynnessmiles.org and on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/brynnessmiles.
Our faith in Jesus Christ is the guiding factor in how we share SMILES and the reason we have such joy in doing so.
