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; 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 on August 12, 2020. Jeff’s most recent novel, The Transference, was just released on June 16, 2022. All are published through WordCraftsPress. Keep an eye out for further information.

Jeff recently completed his fourth novel, Little Reminders of Who I Was, during NaNoWriMo 2021. It is a follow-up to Little Reminders of Who I Am. It’s currently in the hands of WordCraftsPress, waiting for approval.

Currently, Jeff is working on his fifth novel, a follow-up to The Five Barred Gate. All info can be found on the page link. Check out The Five Barred Gate II here.

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. Currently, I am running a Crowdfunding campaign for Elissa Celebrates Christmas. If you are not familiar with Crowdfunding, it is a form of publishing where we raise funds by preselling the books in order to get the book printed. Our target for Elissa Celebrates Christmas is 25 books. Right now, we are sitting at 14, with just four days to go in the campaign.

By investing in my Crowdfunding campaign and supporting Elissa Celebrates Christmas, you will be listed as a contributor at the back of the book. If you purchase two or more books, Elissa will write a special thank you to your child by name in the front of the book. This will be a great keepsake for years to come.

Here is the link to the Crowdfunding campaign. Please consider purchasing a copy or two. These will make excellent stocking stuffers for your little reader. This offer expires on September 30.


The Transference is available on Amazon
