Smithville South desires to help people discover their identity by connecting to their heavenly Father through music and lyrics. Music is a gift from God that easily jumps over walls we build around ourselves because it moves us from the inside out. Universally people want to change, but have believed it can be achieved through self discipline. Transformation only comes as we behold the glory of the Lord in the face of Jesus. Our desire is to reflect that glory and let our heavenly Father do what only He can do. As we see Him, we grow - as we grow, we love - and as we love, we begin to LIVE !
