Steve Evans had his life changed by God. A reformed drug addict, he’s searching for the family he abandoned ten years ago and praying for a miracle.

Iris and Samantha Evans have set their sights on Terri as the perfect stepmother. Their matchmaking plans include equal parts of prayer and deception. Will their scheming result in the wedding of their dreams...?

Louis is welcome to her...
