book Stay the Path is at once poetic and prophetic. Each page
of this captivating read is an invitation to weigh your life in
the eternal balance and lead as the One we were told to follow
would. Pastor Bobbie's dearest desire is to see men and women,
young and old, finish the course that God has laid out for them
in wisdom and strength.
