Author Biography
Orlando Javien is a man of many hats, a bookkeeper, tax preparer and domestic engineer by day and a religious education teacher, author and inspirational speaker by night.

Orlando is the author of the book God Made Me Pick Up Underwear: Finding Faith in Unusual Places. His testimony is one of a life transformed; transformed from a man’s man to a God’s man.

Orlando tackles issues of faith including breaking the bondage of pornography, restoring a broken marriage, and overcoming financial hardship.

Orlando believes that by sharing his struggles and successes others too can be set free.


Book Review
Readers\' Favorite Book Contest Award Winner "God Made Me Pick Up Underwear" is the inspirational story of Orlando U. Javien, Jr. I have read many books written by men concerning their faith. When I read this one I knew it was written from the heart. It takes a courageous man to admit his faults. Mr. Javien is a courageous man. It is easy to admit your faults and failings to your friends, but much harder to share them with the public. He relates to us his struggles with addictions. Everyone will be able to relate to at least one of the chapters in this book. The writing style is simple and conversational. I felt as if Javien and I were sharing a cup of coffee, as he shared his story with me.

This book will benefit everyone. It would be ideal for a small group Bible study or simply for a couple to read together to strengthen their marriage and home life. I found the book to be quite inspiring and it made me look closer at my own faith and Christian life.

I enjoyed the pure from the heart sharing of this book. Orlando's humility in reaching out to others in his writing about his life lessons from Biblical perspective is of great value to believers of all walks of life.

 

Gary Gilmore
Almost every chapter brought to light similar struggles in my life. I have to say though I have yet for God to tell me to pick up underwear. Could happen

 

PAUL CAPISTRANO
