With their professional success and adorable twin daughters, Jeff and Cheryl Scruggs looked like the perfect couple. But their polished facade concealed a widening chasm between two people unable to connect on an intimate, soul-deep level.
After years of frustration, Cheryl’s desire for emotional fulfillment led to an affair and, finally, divorce. Yet, incredibly, seven years later, Jeff and Cheryl once again stood at the altar, promising to “love, honor, and cherish” one another. A new and vibrant love had risen out of the ashes of this family’s pain.
I Do Again details the fascinating real-life story of a couple whose relationship seemed shattered beyond all hope until a spiritual awakening led them to reconsider their definitions of “happily ever after.” A riveting account of the power of prayer and redemption, this remarkable book offers renewed hope for even the most troubled marriages-and reveals why the rewards of restoration are well worth the wait.
Because God did the impossible and healed our marriage after seven years of being divorced…………….”
Jeff & Cheryl Scruggs
Hope Matters Marriage Ministries, Inc. exists because Jeff & Cheryl Scruggs have a passionate desire to see marriages changed, made whole, and reconciled to replicate God’s plan for marriage, not society’s.
Through this crucial ministry, their desire is to glorify God and share with others, that although the world holds virtually no hope for marriages and families being restored, they know that “…By His mighty power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope” Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) and that it is possible for a marriage to be made brand new no matter what stage it is in!
Jeff & Cheryl boldly share their testimony of hope, publicly, through speaking engagements, small group settings, and one on one meetings with couples and individuals. Their goal is to give God the glory for the miracle in their marriage and family, first and foremost, and encourage couples to hang in there and not give up. They are in the process of developing marriage retreat and conferences. They share their testimony because they believe the only ultimate hope for marriage is Jesus Christ.
Jeff & Cheryl meet with couples or individuals to encourage them to seek Jesus as the solid rock foundation of their lives first and then in their marriage, thus giving them the absolute best chance for an abundant marriage. They walk alongside, encourage, pray with and teach others about God’s plan for marriage.
