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; 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 is a follow-up to Little Reminders of Who I Am. It hit shelves in mid October. He will be writing the third installment, Little Reminders of Who I’m Going to Be during NaNoWriMo 2022.
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.
Hey everyone. I have an Elissa Christmas update.
FEB 14, 2023: Isabella Media has contacted me. Many of you should be receiving your refunds by now. If not then it could be because Steve was unable to return the funds to the account you paid Isabella Media through. He informed me that he will be mailing out a check to the address he has on file for you. If you have further concerns email me at email@example.com.
After March 1 I will be removing all updates for Elissa Christmas. I would like to put this behind me and move on to other ventures. I hope that all refunds will have been received by then.
Little Reminders of Who I Was is available on Amazon
The Transference is available on Amazon
