Welcome aboard!

To keep it simple, at 14F, it sounds like the fuel is iced up, likely in the supply line before the filter. Begin by plugging in the block heater for a couple hours. You'll need to warm it up, like in a heated garage, or wait until it gets enough ambient exposure to a warmer temp (move it to sunlight, if that's an option) to thaw the fuel system. There are other options, but that depends on your urgency (or emergency), such as warming the lines with a hair dryer or using a forced-air shop/space heater under the truck (use due caution...). Once started, the system will keep itself warm as long as you run it often/long enough. Then, make sure your fuel is properly treated for the temperature. Do this BEFORE the next time it freezes, or you'll be repeating the same thing.
