Thank you for making my experience one I want to do again, and again with Outskirts Press!”

Book description…

If you’ve ever suffered from a broken heart, ask yourself one question: Are you simply living with and accepting your pain, or are you ready to restore your heart, fully and completely? When the author of “Restoration of the Heart” faced the greatest wilderness experience of his life, his heart was totally broken. Destroyed. But what he learned through the process of healing was profound, and this is what he shares in his powerful new book. In order to achieve true happiness, it is imperative that you live in total restoration and fulfill the plan for your life, rather than merely living with a controlled or broken heart. “Restoration of the Heart” offers some practical scriptural truths to help you discover the meaning of restoration. In Section One, discover the 12 characteristics of control. How did control-the biblical Jezebel-get started in Israel, and how do we destroy this stronghold? Section Two examines the broken heart. What is the right and wrong way to deal with brokenness and hurt in your life? In Section Three you’ll find the answers for total restoration. “Restoration of the Heart” is filled with life-changing principles derived from the greatest book ever written-the Bible. By applying these principles to your life, and by spending time in quiet meditation with the Lord, you, too, can experience a total “Restoration of the Heart” and live victoriously, free from the pain of the past.

Book description…

“We all seek, very few find!” Wholesome spirituality is distinct from man-made religions and much more blatantly poignant. Most of us souls firmly believe in a CREATOR (God, Jehovah, Allah, Buddha etc.), irrespective of dogma, too few of us are thus able to adequately remain on a clear path that is in sync with His or Her WILL that has been supposedly holistically set for each and every one of us! Would you dare to try? Would you care to attempt to find out? The poetry in this book is aimed for one to achieve objective introspection as an initial step, followed by a no holds barred personal assessment, ending in a present day tied to current event analysis of the Lord’s Prayer! No one is “preaching” here, in fact as you may know, once anyone states that he or she “knows,” only guarantees that he or she knows not! The author/poet here is no exception. Let’s journey together! Let’s help each other emerge as altruistic human beings! May make for a better world?

Introducing Jay Fernandez, author of Grace Walk

“The total process was a true pleasure. Information provided answered most of my questions up front and anything that was unique was quickly and professionally answered. I had ordered the custom cover and I can say that when I first opened the proofs, it took my breath away. I had posted the two options on Facebook to get feedback and the responses were overwhelmingly positive. Now that the book is in print, I can honestly say that I have a product I can be proud to show off!”

Jay Fernandez has served as a missionary, lay pastor, worship leader, youth leader and elder. He currently lives in South Sudan, where he helps provide relief to those whose lives have been torn apart by thirty years of civil war. Jay also co-pastors a church of expatriates.

Life’s most difficult lessons are often painful. They require sacrifice and cannot be learned alone. This testimony offers a unique insight into one man’s journey with his Creator. From the mission fields of Islamic Africa to the corporate structures of America, Jay Fernandez has seen God at work in many contexts. And his role within the church has taken many forms. He has served as a lay pastor, worship leader, youth leader and elder. For a time, Jay was happily married and earned in excess of $100, 000 annually. Suddenly, and with little warning, his world came crashing down around him. Through his vices and circumstances out of his control he was brought to his knees, and by the grace of God alone he was lifted up once more. Clearly God’s plan for Jay’s life was more radical than he could have dreamed, and he found his purpose in the rebuilding of battle-torn South Sudan. This stunning testimony seeks to share God’s message of love and forgiveness with all who are willing to seek Him out. It is about the greatest gift anyone could receive, a gift that is available to us all at any time or place, and yet a gift which so many of us fail to see.

Introducing Chakeva A. Harris, author of Beyond the Break

“Stupendous is a word used to describe my experience with Outskirts Press. At the close of writing my book, I had no idea how to get it published or even where to start. I didn’t even know much about Outskirts Press as a company. However, in researching several options with other publishers, I found Outskirts Press to be the most effective and affordable option for me. From the beginning process to the very end, the representatives held my hand and walked me through every fine detail with ease. They made me feel important and that my ideas and thoughts mattered. They even made me feel as if my book was the only book with purpose! I am sure everyone else who has published through Outskirts Press feels the same way! My dream of becoming an author is no longer a dream, but now a reality and I am most grateful! Thank you Outskirts Press! I will definitely use your services again for my next masterpiece!”

Book description…

Have you ever encountered a “David-Saul” situation in your life? Have you ever been entangled by your loyalty to someone whom you loved, admired and looked up to only to experience the devastation of their unrequited love toward you? Have you ever felt “used up” and treated like a puppet of performance by those of false leadership…, only seeking what your gift could do for them, but never really having your best interest at heart? Perhaps you feel forsaken, broken, withdrawn, used, abused, neglected, hated, discredited and downright discouraged because the pursuit of the enemy after what God invested in you has been catastrophically great. If so, then this book is just for you! Beyond the Break has been designed specifically to encourage those who are currently in or those who have survived the struggles of being anointed and appointed by God, but still considered the unlikely candidate by mankind. Even after surviving the deepest church hurt, many of us are often left with a film of residue that tends to linger in our hearts and minds. Yet, through the entrance of the Word of God that brings light to the darkest elements of our lives, there is great hope! Through the life of King David, Evangelist Chakeva Harris will take you through an epic journey with God that will leave you with a greater understanding of the “why” factor in your life, as well as, assist you in evoking the power embedded in you to overcome the javelins being so furiously launched at you. As you read each page, it is with sincere hope that the words of encouragement, restoration and reconciliation leap off of the pages and into your innermost being as you began to move Beyond the Break! Ready? Let’s go!
