Strong By Design Podcast

Feb 2, 2022

Numbing his pain with drugs and reckless behavior for nearly two decades is all Eric knew… until the day he nearly ended his own life. 

On that day with a gun in his hand he made a commitment to himself.  

Eric realized that he alone was responsible for turning things around and if he was to be the man his son and wife desperately needed, it was solely his decision. 

Find out the miraculous story of survival and transformation with guest Eric Rogers on today’s episode of the Strong By Design podcast hosted by Chris Wilson. 


"I've lost everything three times... your happiness comes from within you. If you can be grateful for your breath alone, you're unstoppable." -Eric Rogers
