Host note - I’m a nobody blessed to chat with incredible somebodies about their experiences and perspectives on each episode of Prep For Impact. The opinions expressed on the show are mine and those of the guests alone -not the official position of GBF, our employers, the DOD, or anyone else. It is my firm belief that the true best way to “Prep For Impact” is to live a life under the Lordship of God the Father, saved by grace through Jesus His Son, and led along His path for your life by the Holy Spirit. John 3:16 - my DMs are always open if you’d like to learn more. Thanks for the support and Dios le bendiga todos.
