December 04, 2023

Some of life’s greatest lessons are born out of seemingly insurmountable circumstances. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson sits down with Bob Vander Plaats to celebrate the life of his son, Lucas, who, despite being born with severe disabilities, brightened the lives of everyone he came in contact with. Though Lucas went home to be with the Lord in 2021, Bob and his wife, Darla, thank God every day for the gift of their son.
