Time Trials is the story of the redemption of Wes Strong. After surviving an abusive father and a devastating loss in his family, he becomes an elite runner in high school and earns an athletic scholarship to Clemson University. Tragedy strikes when he becomes addicted to painkillers and bad decisions land him in prison where he is saved both literally and spiritually by the mysterious Preacher. Preacher enlightens Wes about the New Testament, particularly Romans 8:28. Wes is granted early release, and he becomes a counselor at the Bowers-Rodgers Shelter for Abused Children, where he uses his newfound faith to help others. Another counselor, Roxie, encourages Wes to resume running to set an encouraging example to the children at the Home. During this time, Wes is reconciled to his father who is dying of cancer. As a gift, Wes's coworkers send him to the Boston Marathon, where extraordinary things happen. Afterward, Wes continues to preach Romans 8:28 to all as surprising rewards continue to come his way.
