Strong By Design Podcast

Dec 22, 2021

“Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.” -Andy Dufresne (Shawshank Redemption)

If we don’t have hope in our lives, then what do we have and what are we living for? A great question to ponder and the topic of our conversation today on the Strong By Design podcast.

Hosts Mike Westerdal and Chris Wilson are joined by friends and favorite repeat guests Bob Brubaker and John Trebino, hosts of the Powerbreak Podcast.

During the Christmas season we are reminded of the One who brought hope to the whole world and the Son of God continues to inspire hope over 2,000 years later.


"People today have a 'hope' that's kind of like a wish, it's not based on anything that is concrete. -Bob Brubaker
