After his freshman year, he married his elementary school sweetheart, Deanna who joined him as they made their way back to Iowa. 

Three degrees (B.Sc in philosophy and religion, M.Phil in philosophical theology, Ph.D. from Villanova University) and 4 children (Grayson, Coleson, Madison, and Jackson) later, Dr. Smith is a professor of Philosophy at Calvin College where he holds the Gary & Henrietta Byker Chair in Applied Reformed Theology & Worldview. He also occasionally teaches in the PhD program at Calvin Theological Seminary and has been a visting professor at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, and Regent College in Vancouver, BC.
