A Vow to Cherish begins at the happy home of John and Ellen Brighton. Their marriage is still burning brightly and their love for each other has not diminished over the years. The central part of their marriage is their faith in God. He has sustained them throughout both of their lives, and they continue to put their trust in him. This has given them great joy, as they know that he will never leave them.
John is co-owner of an extremely successful business, and this brings him great joy in life. He is very blessed to have such a prosperous business, and he never fails to thank God for this. Ellen is an elementary school teacher and dearly loves the children that she teaches. She invests herself in their lives and receives great joy from doing this. However, A Vow to Cherish takes a dramatic and unexpected turn when something goes terribly wrong one day. At a speaking engagement, Ellen is up on the platform, delivering a speech. Right in the middle of this, she passes out and is rushed to the hospital.
John receives news of this and instantly goes to the hospital to be with his wife. He prays that she simply fainted and that nothing is seriously wrong with her. The doctor arrives and the couple is faced with dreadful news. The tests at the hospital have shown that Ellen is slowly coming down with Alzheimer’s disease. This will rob her of her memory and will slowly erode her mind, causing her to forget the people around her. John and Ellen are devastated, knowing that this will greatly change their relationship. A Vow to Cherish shows them desperately praying for healing and placing their faith in God, no matter what comes.
As time goes on, Ellen continues to get worse. She is slowly losing all of her memories and the people around her are fading into unfamiliar faces. She no longer recognizes her own daughter, Terri, which causes her great pain. She feels rejected by her own mother, though she knows that Ellen cannot control what is happening to her. Slowly, A Vow to Cherish finds the Brighton family falling apart. Ellen and John held the family together, and without her, he is completely lost. The very foundation that the family stood upon is slowly slipping away from them, and they do not know how to recover this.
Ellen’s disease is completely tearing John apart. He loves her so deeply that he does not even want to imagine life without her. She has been his faithful companion throughout all their years together, and without her, he feels very alone. His business is slipping away from him, as he has not been able to devote the necessary attention to it. A Vow to Cherish shows the depth of emotion within John, and the struggle that he is suddenly faced with. To clear his head, he has been jogging recently. While jogging one day, he meets a beautiful woman named Julia Sinclair. She is very bright and provides him with someone to talk to and laugh with. Slowly, he finds himself falling for her, because she is able to mentally support him during this time. Temptation drives him closer to Julia, and he almost heads down a very dangerous path.
However, before he goes any further, John realizes what he is doing to his wife. Though she does not remember him anymore, he is still married to her. He still loves her with every fiber of his being, though she does not know or understand this now. His time with Julia is a blatant disregard to his marriage, and John is immediately ashamed of his action. He begs God for forgiveness and continues to pray for the strength to survive the tragedy gripping his family. It seems to him as if God has completely abandoned him, and his faith starts to fail.

Suddenly, in the midst of it all, God reaches out to him clearly and loudly and wakes him up. John realizes what has happened to him and he discovers that God never left him.
