    S3E15: 5 Lessons for Life with Jacob Paulsen- Hi guys, just want to say this was the best podcast I have heard in a long time. I really appreciate you being “vulnerable” and sharing your heart with your listeners, brought to mind issues of life I hadn’t considered in a long time, like priorities. Thank you!

      Thank you for letting us know. This was a tough one to do, and it was difficult to know whether listeners would even appreciate this episode or not. Thanks for listening!

    Welcome Bach Jacob! I’m thankful for the leadership team at ConcealedCarry.Com. I missed the Guardian Nation Conference due to experiencing the effects of Covid-19. Have since recovered. I am looking forward to attending the next Guardian Nation Conference, Lord willing. Take care.

      Thank you for the kind words, Dale. I’m so sorry you were unable to join us at the conference. But I’m glad to hear you are recovering well!
