Every day families across America experience the agony that accompanies the death of a child.  

We help them Smile Again.

Smile Again Ministries (SAM) helps families deal with the grief and struggles that follow the death of a child.  Since 1998 SAM has helped several moms and dads and surviving siblings cope with their loss and pain.  Whitetail Lodge - located near Crosslake, Minnesota - is a retreat center for grieving families.  This is a safe place to deal with your shattered emotions.  A place where healing can begin.  It doesn't matter what age your child was when he or she died - we have found the pain suffered by parents is deep no matter how old your child was.

We count it a privilege to be a part of your grief journey.
