Lisa Anderson, Host of Moody Radio's Boundless Show, joins Kelli and Steve to honor our single listeners. Lisa believes, "Most people either love this holiday or hate it. A large reason for that is because it is heavily marketed towards couples, while leaving the millions of single people of the world in the shadows." During a holiday where people are flaunting their happy relationships, how do single people remain content in their phase of life?

Lisa Anderson is the director of Boundless and young adults at Focus on the Family and hosts The Boundless Show, a national radio program and podcast. She loves connecting with single young adults and strategizing how to better equip them for life, relationships and a faith that goes the distance; she does not love managing budgets or signing contracts, but realizes that’s part of her job, too. Lisa can often be heard at conferences and on radio and TV, getting worked up about dating, relationships, faith and hip-hop. She grew up in San Jose, California, is a graduate of Trinity International University in Chicago, and spent a good chunk of her life in media relations before joining Boundless. She runs to counterbalance her love of pastries and chicken tikka masala, and often quotes her mom, who’s known to say outrageous things.
