About the Author

      Jeff Mullins has been the pastor of Canaan Community Church in Deer Island, Oregon for over two decades as a missionary pastor with Northwest Independent Church Extension (NICE). During that time he and his wife Mary have raised seven children and have worked diligently to make disciples. Jeff and Mary are assisting their daughter and son-in-law plant a local deaf church. Jeff has supported his family and ministry as a small businessman who operates a portable sawmill and provides custom lumber.

          Jeff wrote his first book, Datingand Marriage, in 1999 specifically for his children. It was his intent to use the book to teach his own children about dating and marriage, so they could avoid some of the heart aches so many other people experience. At the time his oldest daughter was 16 years old. Now, 19 years later, five of his children are married and he currently has nine grandchildren.

         He wrote his second book, Children:Raising or Ruining? shortly before his first grandchild was born. His commitment to the faithful and practical preaching of the Bible lead him to author three additional books Good Sermon Brother,  You CAN Understand the Bible, and ABiblical Disciple.

       All of Jeff's books clearly point to God's Word, the Bible as the authority, recognizing that each person is ultimately accountable to Him. Jeff has a unique way of drawing attention to the specific instructions and principles in the Bible. Jeff's thought provoking writing challenges assumptions, spurs study of God's word, and urges practical application of God's truth. By putting these things into print it is his hope to broaden his ministry for years to come by providing relevant resources to help fellow Christians succeed in glorify God.

be the source of one's greatest joy in life or their heaviest burden. To a significant degree, the difference depends upon who you choose as your life long spouse.
