He has a huge heart for the world and has committed himself to doing the Lord’s work. Grover constantly tries to be on the lookout for anyone in need of help, as he wants to be there to offer them assistance.
One day, Grover encounters a man named Ulice Parker. This man is committed to prayer and has devoted himself to this time spent with the Lord. When the two cross paths, they quickly become friends. Their relationship deepens and grows in strength as they get to know each other better. They become committed to praying for one another, and they experience a spiritual closeness in each other that they never thought possible.

As life goes on, they continue to get closer and their families soon form friendships as well. These two men have become so dear to each other in such an unexpected way, but they are both extremely blessed by knowing each other.
Then, the unthinkable happens and tragedy strikes. Terror grips the town that Ulice and Grover live in, and this directly affects Ulice and his family. Grover becomes very angry at what has happened and does not know how to best help his friend. He desperately wants to solve every problem and heal every wound, but the situation is bigger than him and way out of his control. Doing the only thing he knows to do, Grover goes to God in prayer, begging for help for Ulice and his family. He feels God telling him that, no matter the cost, he must be there for Ulice in order to help him through this situation. His friendship will be more valuable than ever during this time, and Grover promises to stick by Ulice. The Heart of Texas watches as Grover spends long, countless hours praying with and for his friend. His own heart is anguished over the hurt that Ulice is experiencing, and this starts to take a toll on him.
Their families unite and surrounds each other with nothing but fervent prayer and unconditional love. Together, they support each other and hold each other up. They live each day one at a time, surviving as time goes on. Soon, the anger at the great tragedy turns to bitterness, and Ulice struggles greatly with this. He wants to seek revenge and take matters into his own hands, though he knows that this is the wrong thing to do. He wants to take action and make those who inflicted pain upon him and his family feel the same thing that he felt. However, Grover is able to intervene in Ulice’s life and show him that he must do the unspeakable—forgive those who wounded him.
The Heart of Texas carries a weighty and important message about the power of forgiveness. Instead of becoming hardened and bitter, Ulice must figure out how to let go of the pent-up anger and rage in order to find true healing. Grover’s friendship helps him greatly throughout these times as he provides unending friendship and support. The love pouring out of him and his family show Ulice what it truly means to love someone, and that he must live this in every area of his life. In a way that only God can do, Ulice slowly lets go of his bitterness and anger. He stops clinging to the very thing that could destroy his life and instead begins to let the power of forgiveness change him. By forgiving his worst enemies and those who hurt him the most, Ulice has set himself free.
