Following God's Lead

A fundraiser gone awry is the basis of a story shared by Kentuckian Bobbie Smith Bryant in the 2019 January-February issue of The Upper Room. The publication is a global ministry of the United Methodist Church.

Bryant’s personal story comes from serving as president of the Board of Directors of the Wesley Foundation on the campus of the University of Louisville.

Through listening in prayer and in volunteering for the Wesley Foundation, God has moved her to write about her faith.  

The Upper Room is translated into more than 30 languages and can be found in over 100 countries. To obtain a copy of The Upper Room, pick up a free copy at a United Methodist Church near you.
