God approves the called; he does not call the approved.
Everyone has been called by God to serve for Him in ways that we do not realize. Ben Harrington, a university dropout, one day went to the Art Institute in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico, where he met Kate, the woman destined to be his wife.
In a separate world, there is Chloe Jefferies, a brilliant college student who suffers from her past of being sexually abused by her father. Neither each of these two characters know that their lives would be interwoven in ways that relate to God.
The two met, and Chloe found herself being used to remove Ben from his position in the diocese.
