When Sarah Cain, a self-involved big-city newspaper columnist, travels to Pennsylvania for the funeral of her Amish sister, she soon discovers that she is the legal guardian of her five Amish nieces and nephews. Rather than choose to move to Lancaster County to finish raising them there herself, or let them be separated by the foster care system, Sarah decides to take them with her back to Portland where she believes she can make a new life for them. However, she soon realizes that the modern world has forced them to compromise who they are, and that she has moved them there for all the wrong reasons - a motive which is soon exposed - because secrets can really never be kept secret. In order to find her own redemption, she knows she must make a choice to give them back their lives in Amish Country. And whether she remains part of their lives will have a lot to do with how much she has grown to love them.

Nominated for an Academy Award, Michael T. Steele (Randy Travis) has reached a pinnacle that no other Christian has. Unaware, he has now been cast as the lead in a supernatural drama, as the center focus of a wager between God and Satan. Like the Old Testament accounting of Job, it is up to Michael Steele to determine the winner.
His Joan of Arc sister, Annie (Nancy Stafford) is the only bastion of security in the now tumbling world of Michael Steele. A conniving agent (Jude Cicollola) and his long time chauffer (David Morin) try their best to control his chaotic Hollywood lifestyle while his co-star Cassandra (Candice Cameron) has other ideas. The Wager is a powerful parable examining the Sermon on the Mount and how to live it in today’s world.
Claiming that the Sermon on the Mount is an impossible standard, Satan has chosen Steele to prove his point in this wager with the Almighty. Agreeing to the choice, the true test is if Michael can live out the truths of Matthew 5, 6, and 7 in the final days before the awards. THE WAGER follows Steel as he copes with his career, his crumbling marriage, and struggles with his faith - not to mention a few diabolical tricks and temptations by Satan.
…the fiery darts of temptation fly. Will Michael fall?
