He has been in love with her for years, but he can’t let her get in the way of his divine calling to plant a new church, can he?
Diego Flores has been interested in his best friend’s younger sister since their college days, but his calling to grow Riverside Chapel in Savannah takes up most of his time. When Heidi Wei becomes his strongest supporter in his church growth ministry, how does Diego show his feelings for her without giving her the wrong idea? Does she see him as potential husband material or just the pastor of their church?
Heidi suspects that Diego is sweet on her, but he seems to believe that his divine calling prevents him from acting on it. If it isn’t meant to be, she’s not going to push for it. Yet every time they are together, something happens between them. Have they moved beyond the platonic relationship they have enjoyed all these years to something more personal?
When a crisis hits Heidi’s family, Diego has to balance pastoring his congregation and ministering to Heidi without losing either one. Being in love while planting and growing a new church is difficult for him to juggle. Which path is more important? Which one should he focus on?
