Story Behind the Book I met Chuck Holton a few years ago when he took my fiction clas*ses at the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. I enjoyed him because my life experience is so different from his. When it was time to develop a new fiction series, I thought it would be fun to combine his military background with my civilian background and write a series right out of today s headlines. He has basically written the male points of view, and I ve done the female. Very challenging and great fun! Gayle Roper

Riding the Waves
I have learned to be content, wrote Paul many years ago. If Paul could learn to be content, then what a joy it is to realize there is hope for us as well. God’s peace and contentment can be ours but as God s blessings were conditional to Israel, contentment is conditional to us. If we learn to recognize the enemies of contentment like envy, loneliness, and ungratefulness, we can replace them with anchors of contentment like godly choices, obedience, and dependence.
A Woman and Her Emotions
Women have a unique relationship with emotion. Many would say that emotion, and women’s responses and reactions to it, is the greatest distinction between men and women. No matter how you try to define it women tend to be more emotional than men.

In A Woman and Her Emotions, Gayle Roper addresses the factors and situations that contribute to a woman s emotional stability. From hormonal changes to daily living patterns, she discusses ways to identify one s emotional responses and shares practical ideas for overcoming negative emotional reactions in one s behavior and attitude. Gayle also digs deeper to explore the motivations and unhealthy thinking that often affect a woman s emotions. With guidance and insight, she teaches the importance of committing all of oneself to Christ, including one s emotions, in order to achieve emotional consistency and discover the peace of discernment and emotional freedom.
