Who We Are

Jeff Cheryl Scruggs

Jeff & Cheryl Scruggs are the founders of Hope Matters. Their ministry includes sharing God’s heart for marriage and relationships through Biblical counseling, writing and speaking. They passionately seek to help make marriages whole in His power. Jeff & Cheryl are intimately familiar with a marriage focused on the principles of the world, the sting, heartbreak and pain from a divorce, and the deep rooted hope and joy of a fully restored marriage centered on God. It is this unique perspective and experience that they obediently share in Biblical counseling and with audiences nationwide.

Jeff & Cheryl Scruggs are authors, speakers, Biblical counselors, and partners all over again.  Their writings include the well-known book “I Do Again,”  their 30 year story of marriage, betrayal, infidelity, divorce, emotional damage and scarring, forgiveness, restoration, trust, and re-marriage. They are co-authors of “Still LoLo” with their daughter’s Lauren and Brittany. This remarkable and life-changing story has been featured on The Today Show, I Am Second, Focus on the Family, Family Life with Dennis Rainey, Life Today, Good Morning America, The Katie Couric Show and more.
