Moments for the Heart

Moments for the Heart was founded in 1997 by Jeff S. Bray. The ministry began as a compilation of poetry he had written in High School. In 2008, a blog under the same name was launched. Today, Moments for the Heart has blossomed into a multi-leveled freelance enterprise.

Jeff has twenty-five years of experience which began with writing blogs, poetry, and short stories. In August 2017, he wrote a featured article about fatherhood for “The Lookout Magazine.” He then penned a series of four children’s books; Elissa the Curious Snail, the first was published in June 2018.

His first novel, The Five Barred Gate, was released in September 2019. His second, Little Reminders of Who I Am, was released in August 2020. Jeff’s third novel, The Transference, was released on June 16, 2022. All are published through WordCraftsPress.

Jeff’s most recent novel, Little Reminders of Who I Was, was written during NaNoWriMo 2021. It’s the follow-up to Little Reminders of Who I Am. It hit shelves in October 2022. He wrote the third installment, Little Reminders of Who I’m Going to Be during NaNo 2022. It is scheduled to be released in October/November 2023.

Jeff has recently completed his fifth novel, a follow-up to The Five Barred Gate. All info can be found on the page link, The Five Barred Gate II here. With all that is going on, that one may stew for a little while. Keep your eyes on the page for more info.

Jeff keeps a personal blog, a topical blog on Medium, and an occasional post on GOD TV. He also has a catalog of Children’s short stories he wrote for Isabella Media. You can read these on the Short Story Writing tab.
