It was a quiet Tuesday morning in Erie, Il, when Larry and Connie Van Oosten were awakened by an intruder in their bedroom and their real-life nightmare began. Not knowing why they were being taken at gunpoint, Larry and Connie Van Oosten were at peace because they knew where they were headed after death. Now after this traumatic experience, Larry and Connie are telling their story to share with all who will listen about our eternal hope and rescuer, Jesus, and how He is our security regardless of the outcomes of this life.
The saying “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” may be catchy, but could it be true? Is there a time, like spring break, when consequences are put on hold? Boundless Show host Lisa Anderson visits with Ken and Deb about the truth of sin’s devastation and how there is a way to have fun on your spring break without shame and regret.
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.
