|Matthew L. Jacobson has worked in the Christian book publishing industry for twenty-three years, publishing many homeschool leaders including Dr. Mike Farris and Vicki Farris, Dr. Brian Ray, and the late Chris Klicka. He is currently president of Loyal Arts Literary Agency, a company representing authors to the publishing industry such as New York Times Bestseller Kevin Malarkey author of The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven, Sheri Rose Shepherd of Bible Life Coaching, and Eric and Leslie Ludy, founders of Ellerslie Bible School, and authors of over 15 books including, When God Writes Your Love Story. Matt is also a teaching elder at Tumalo Bible Fellowship where he has ministered for the past nine years. Most importantly, he is married to Lisa and together they home educate their 8 children, ranging from kindergarten to a college-bound son heading to Patrick Henry College in the Fall.
Lisa Jacobson has been married to Matt Jacobson for twenty years. The focus of her ministry is blessing her husband with her administrative skills, pouring into the lives of their eight children (ages 5 – 18) through homeschool discipleship, and endeavoring to maintain a home of order, peace, and holiness. When this full-time enterprise allows, Lisa also encourages other women to embrace the rich life of loving relationships, a godly home, and the high calling of being a wife and mother. A woman of many interests, Lisa loves reading classic literature, missionary biographies, and, well, many other genres! Prevented only by time, her hobby of blending specialty teas has threatened several times to become a full-fledged business. Lisa and her husband are the authors of several children’s books including the winner of the C.S. Lewis Award for children’s literature, Mommy, How Did God Make Me, The Amazing Beginning of You, and The Big Ten for Little Saints.
