My name is Matthew L. Jacobson (feel free to call me Matt!) Thanks for stopping by.
This blog is about what the world needs.
It needs more men who love their wives deeply and passionately; more women who are cherished by their husbands; more wives who respect their men, more singles who are prepared to be good husbands, wives, moms & dads. And, more obedience to the Word of God . . . a lot more.

Funny thing is, to win this war, you just have to love each other more, read the Word, and do what it says! So, offered here is biblical teaching, wisdom from experience, and the sharing of a life.

For the past ten years, I’ve been a teaching elder at Tumalo Bible Fellowship, where we exalt Jesus Christ, striving to walk in open, authentic Christian fellowship and faithfulness to God through obedience to His Word. For those interested in these things, I attended Multnomah Bible College and Trinity Western University.
