You have one more opportunity to see and introduce a new generation to the incredible story of The Hiding Place this weekend in the Quad Cities. The Hiding Place is the story of Corrie ten Boom, who with her father and sister hid more than 800 Jewish refugees during World War II. Ken and Deb highlight this newly filmed stage play of The Hiding Place as they visit with playwright A.S. Pete Peterson. Pete will share with us how this project came to the big screen and the importance and relevancy of this story being retold and viewed in a new fresh way today.
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.
