In Texas, Paige has no time for herself not even to properly sleep, eat or read the bible. She works at an adoption agency, teaches Sunday school, and volunteers/volunteered for all sorts of activity like planning a wedding anniversary party and administering a fund raiser. Now her BFF Layla is engaged to Peter, a man Paige dislikes and wants her to help plan her wedding. Naturally Paige agrees as she cannot say no.

At church, Paige meets new member Tyler. She is attractive to him and though a pensive person by nature he shows his interest in her. However, mentally fatigued Paige has no time to see anyone so she tries to keep her distance.

The first Paige Alder inspirational is a warm look at a person who’s DNA insists she help others even at the cost of herself; First lady Nancy Reagan’s “just say no” is not in her vocabulary. The message is am addition to the Golden Rule "Do unto others (and yourself) as you would have them do unto you". Paige needs to learn to take care of her body, mind and spirit while also balancing the demands of others; as God gave us our humanity to treasure as sacred.
