Our names are John and Kara Huntinghouse and we run the LDS SMILE.com website and Facebook Site. For those who don’t know yet, the acronym S.M.I.L.E. stands for spiritually minded is life eternal and that comes from 2 Nephi 9:39. Our goal here on the site is to bring a comedic, fun and uplifting atmosphere both for members and individuals who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

John Huntinghouse used to work as a cardiovascular genetic researcher for the Intermountain Heart Institute at Intermountain Healthcare. He has his MBA from the University of Utah and received his bachelor degree in Biology at the University of Utah. He currently is a full time blogger on LDS SMILE and also an adjunct faulty member at LDS Business College in the Social Media Marketing Program. In addition, he has worked for the Church Educational System as an EFY counselor and building counselor and has been speaking to various groups both within and outside of the church for the last five years.

Kara brings her own unique perspective to the site. Kara has her associates in Early Childhood education from UVU and  currently tackles one of the hardest yet most rewarding jobs as a stay at home mother to our three adorable children Maya, Mason and Aubrey whose ages are 7, 4 and 2 respectively. She is also loving her calling in our ward serving in the Young Women presidency.

If you are wanting to schedule a speaking arrangement, please provide at least three weeks notice.  Sometimes we can fit in speaking arrangements within that time frame but there’s no guarantee.  We don’t charge for speaking at events in the Salt Lake Valley, Utah or Davis County however, if you want us to speak at a location outside of those areas, we simply ask you to cover the cost of travel.  Thanks.
