Trudy is the girl of Ryan's dreams, but Trudy is waiting for God to tell her who she should marry; Ryan is not what she had in mind. When Ryan's friends discover this they create a plan behind Ryan's back to convince Trudy that God has chosen her to be with Ryan. With less than brilliant ideas, each plan backfires and each scheme gets more ridiculous. As his friends Jack, Lon, and Bridgett dig themselves deeper into trouble, they try to rationalize and justify each scheme to convince Trudy.

God Help Me started when producer Dan Olds wrote the screenplay, and he later worked with Duststorm Productions on preparation of film. The project was financed with $15,000, and the production was very low budget. The movie was shot in Missouri and mostly used local cast and crew. It was shot over a period of fourteen days.
Brett Hunt of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer gave the film a mixed review, saying, "I think to a Christian audience this might be an ok movie..." The film won the "Best Film Under $25,000" award at the Creation Arts Festival.
