Episode 13 — Write the Book God Gave You: Special Guest 83 Year Old Dr. Paul Potter, Ph.D., retired Gypsy Professor and Spiritual Wanderer


Dr. Paul Potter takes us through some twists and turns, disappointments and discontents, of his long career. He’s 83 as of this recording, even though it seems like he was only 82 last year. He’s got a lot of stories about the various moves he believes God brought him through and has some lessons for us at the very end. One of those lessons he shares is write the book that God has given you. It took him to the end of his life, 25 years after Lance Wallnau, Sr., told him that, for him to complete that task. 

We at The Republican Professor believe in listening carefully to the older generation. You’d be surprised at what gems you might pick out that you never expected to find. And of course, just being with someone who’s been around a lot, asking good questions, itself is valuable–being with each other.
