Meghan was determined to fulfill the dream of building her own home. Her daughter Kaci deserved that much. She wouldn't have survived the divorce without the moral support of her daughter. It wasn't easy raising a teenager alone, even though Kaci was never a problem. The real problem was not enough hours in the day. Although Meghan's faith remained strong and she leaned on God every day, church attendance had been shoved to the back burner. She hated to admit, even to herself, that she had been away from church so long she had not met the new pastor who took over six months ago.

Travis Harmon, the new pastor of Hope Community Church, had a secret. Only the head elder was aware of the inner turmoil his friend suffered. Travis had a gift when it came to leading souls to Christ, but he could be forced to give up the ministry. What would it take to heal his tortured heart? Would he ever feel whole again?

Diamond in the Rough is a story of God's healing power. How he looks past our flaws and weaknesses and sees our potential. He looks beyond the obvious, beyond the experiences that have taken a toll on our optimism. He looks at our character, our soul. And he looks through the loving eyes of a parent. On the surface, we may not look like much. But with some hard work and a little bit of polishing, we can shine like the brightest diamond.
