Strong By Design Podcast

Jun 10, 2020

The power of life or death can literally come from our mouths.

Words can either kill or be life giving.

As it says in James 3: 9-12; "With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God's likeness.

Pastor and close friend JP Poirier sits down with Mike Westerdal and Samantha Harrison. He has a powerful message about how the words we use nourish the soul and spirit or can lead to destruction. We have the choice to produce fruit or poison with them.


“I can sit in a room with somebody for 10 minutes and I can break down their lives, where they're at, where they're struggling just by 'how' they're talking to me.” -JP Poirier
