Truth or Dare is a childhood game—or is it?

Simon Wilson is a bully. A Thief. An Accomplished liar.

But the biggest lie of all is not one he has told. It’s one he believes.

It’s the one that says he will never be good enough. He will never measure up. Never be worthy. He is at a crossroads.

Will Simon continue to be deceived by the lie? Or will he choose to believe the Truth?

Will Hayes is a nice guy. A good husband. A devoted father. He volunteers in his community. He’s never had so much as a parking ticket. But, counter to the plans he and his wife, Brigit, had made for their lives, things take a turn for the worse. One obstacle after another block their path to happiness.

When Will faces the biggest setback of his life, his daughter’s questions surrounding death prompt him to take a hard look at both his past and his future. Will he choose to continue on his path, with only himself to answer to, or will he choose to surrender his future to the one he turned his back on at his own father’s deathbed…when he’d prayed for healing that hadn’t come?
