This is a faith based novel. It is, in fact, a combination of three novels. We have four women, four friends, and four very different lives that intertwine through time and space…each with her own unique way of drawing on the power of God.These stories are based on people I have been connected to during my walk in life.
In STANDING STRONG, the faith and friendship of four young women is tested when they face hard decisions that will change their lives forever. Love and romance is never easy, especially for Christian friends who struggle to live spiritual lives when real-life issues conflict with everything that they have ever believed is right.
As Susie struggles with a decision to have an abortion that may tear apart her heart and harm her physically, Jennie struggles to keep a secret promise to return to spiritual virginity that threatens her developing love relationship. As each young woman tries to find herself, her happiness, and her calling, they each discover that only one thing remains true: God’s love.
Elizabeth has had a lot of emotional pain in her life. She leaves Colorado behind and finds a safe place in a Southern California Christian mission station that ministers to the downtrodden of the community. A strong Christian, she still struggles with her painful past, which followed her to Southern California as a rejected guy from her high school days stalks her and taunts her for being overweight―worse, he does it in front of the handsome Pastor Sam.
Humiliated and downcast at the names she is called, and at her past history revealed to Sam, she struggles to lose weight with desperate measures. Pastor Sam struggles to understand why it is so important to her. Luckily, she finds a Christian counselor who helps others overcome their addictions. Together with some women of the neighborhood, they must unravel their pasts to heal their futures.
Annie Duncan leaves her abusive boyfriend and unsavory job. She hops on a plane to anywhere, just to get away from her past. The next plane is headed for Southern California and in the seat next to her is Joseph Jacobs, a hunky modern-day missionary who is about to change her life with wisdom, promises from the Bible, and compassion.
The man of her dreams is a hero of Biblical proportions and strength. To her surprise, he’s never been intimate with anyone. But she loves him passionately. How can a woman with a past show her love to a man who has kept himself pure for a lifetime while he searches for his God-given true love? It’s going to take a miracle for these two to come together…and to find true love.

A Sweet Christian military romance set during World War II that will touch your heart
Matthew Finley and William Sawyer have become fast friends as they face the realities of being US soldiers in 1944 Germany. One dark, cloudy night, with everything to lose, they face an enemy-populated Hürtgen Forest. But Matthew has brought a weapon more powerful than any gun could ever be. He has brought his faith.
Matthew’s sister, Grace, is a combat nurse working in a fast-paced field hospital along the front lines. She finds herself constantly saying small prayers for the men in her care. She always feels that her prayers are heard, until one day when she gets two letters with life-changing news.
As William and Matthew plot out coordinates for a special mission, the two men are walking ever closer to a moment that can never be changed. But, as William will soon find out, one ending is only the spark to a new beginning.
Grace has lived to see the end of the war in Europe, but the war in her heart is still going on. Staying on to help the last soldiers get home, Grace finds a handsome soldier with his head wrapped in bandages sitting in her final hospital.
When William leaves Europe for US soil, he is certain he will never see the beautiful nurse again…
Based on the author’s heart-wrenching experiences from 2009 through 2014, The Irony of Grace is a powerful testimony of God’s ability to teach us powerful lessons in the midst of life’s most distressing valleys.
Many drivers are guilty of using their phone while driving. Chandler Gerber was one of those drivers and his actions resulted in tragedy. Ironically, he previously had been severely injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver.
The Irony of Grace is the story of surrendering anger, bitterness, and resentment to Jesus Christ. The ability to forgive emerges as the result.
Chandler Gerber, a husband and father, resides with his family near Bluffton, Indiana, where he was born and raised. He speaks throughout the country on the topics of driving safety, forgiveness, overcoming obstacles, and a variety of similar themes. His life plans never included speaking or being involved in the public eye, but God has a way of using each of us as He sees fit.
Chandler appears in “From One Second to the Next”, a short film on texting while driving that can be viewed on Netflix and YouTube. He is part of the “It Can Wait” program, a national crusade that raises distracted driving awareness.
“This book should be required reading for anyone with a driver’s license.”
– Dave Beckwith, pastor and author of THE EDGE: God’s Power Perfected in Weakness
“The Irony of Grace is a powerful and moving story that will linger in your mind and in your heart long after you close the book.”
– Suzanne Woods Fisher, bestselling author of Amish Peace: Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World
