"We Are Dedicated To Building Vibrant Healthy Marriages!"

Feb 28, 2018

Hey folks ... 

Welcome to Your Marriage Matterz podcast #006! This week we tackle 10 reasons why YOUR Marriage Matterz. Not just why marriage itself matters but specifically why YOUR individual Marriage Matterz!

We don't want to give away the list here in the show notes but we will share with you that one important way YOUR Marriage Matters is the fact that it matters to us! If you ever think no one cares about you and/or your marriage we want you to know that we do!

The Jacobus' care about you and your marriage and there isn't much we won't do to help you experience everything you hoped and dreamed it would be. 

We trust you will enjoy this list of 10 Reasons Why YOUR Marriage Matterz!

Hey there YMM gang!

When we started this thing we promised we would come at you with all kinds of resources ... including interviews!

Well, we did our first interview this past weekend on location at a marriage conference we were speaking for and it was with our good friends Matt & Julie Barnhill!

We could have interviewed them on a dozen different topics regarding marriage and they would have blown it out of the water. That said, we decided to talk with them about how intentional they were about how they raised their three daughters.

To say the result was gold would be an understatement. This is so full of great ideas we should all listen to it over and over. The proof of their success is evident in the lives of Megan, Brittany and Breanna, the husbands they married and the families they are raising. 

Grab a notebook for this one!

Hey folks ... 

Yesterday, February 14th, Valentine's Day and our 31st anniversary, was an awesome day! We thoroughly enjoyed our day together both working and playing. And ... we launched our podcast and Facebook page for YOUR Marriage Matterz!

To say we had a successful launch is an understatement! We had ...

  • 263 downloads of the podcast and
  • 116 people followed our Facebook page 
  • All in 1 day!!!

That said, there were a lot of questions and tons of great feedback. The most common was ... "hey, you misspelled Matters". We figured that was coming and even explained it, briefly, in one of the podcasts. 

Since there were so many questions we did this short recording to explain "Why the Z"!

We trust you will enjoy the explanation ... 

Let us know if you have any questions, or if we have any other misspelled words!

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to episode #002 of the Your Marriage Matterz podcast! Today we are going to tackle some fundamental principles for building a vibrant healthy marriage!

Our definition of a principle is that it "will work anywhere, any time and for anybody"! The principles in this podcast will make us better business men and women, better golfers or tennis players, better men, women, mothers, fathers and yes ... better husbands and wives! They will make us better, even extraordinary, at anything we choose in life. 

The principles we will share with you in this podcast are as follows:

  • Be passionate about your life and you marriage
  • Be committed to it 100%
  • Have a big vision, or dream, for your marriage
  • Keep learning and growing in your marriage
  • Take total responsibility for your life and your marriage

We trust you will enjoy these principles!

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to Your Marriage Matterz episode #001! We are both professional speakers and trainers and we know that every audience we stand in front of wants to know the following:

  • Who are you?
  • Why are you here?
  • Why do I care?

In YMM Podcast Zero we answered the second and third questions in detail and added a little about who we are. In this podcast we go into detail about Christie, about Jim and about the two of us as a couple ... or, what we refer to as "Team Jacobus"!

You will find in this podcast that we are both quite different personalities, with quite different backgrounds and quite different ways of doing things! Yet we work, sometimes hard, at building the best marriage (or team) we can leveraging each other's strengths. 

So, we trust you will enjoy this episode as you learn more about the two of us! 

Thanks for listening ...

Hey gang ... 

Welcome to the very first "Your Marriage Matterz" podcast! We are calling this particular episode Podcast Zero as it is just an introduction to our podcast. And, in this episode we want to answer 3 important questions:

  • Who are we?
  • What are we doing with this podcast?
  • Most important ... why do you care?

So we actually start out with what are we doing with this podcast and the simple answer is we are committed to doing everything we can to "build healthy vibrant marriages". The podcast is just one of the many ways we are going to be doing what we can. 

Why do you care? To say the least ... building a vibrant healthy marriage is hard work some times. We want to share with you important strategies, skills, tactics and mindsets needed to take your marriage to the next level. 

So, who are we? You can read the show notes, go to our website www.yourmarriagematterz.com or listen to YMM #001 to get the details. But for now we are a couple that has been married for 31 years with a passion for helping others with this crazy thing called marriage!
