Jeff Lisanick was like many of us who grew up in Northern Virginian. After a good, middle-class upbringing, he went off to college and started partying and experimenting with alcohol and drugs. His story becomes remarkable, though, in what happened next. On November 29, 1989, while high on laughing gas, he ran a red light and rear-ended another car, killing its two occupants. He was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to 37 years in prison. Jeff joins us to tell about his life journey since then, and the power he discovered that radically transformed a terrible event into an amazing story of forgiveness, overcoming, and redemption.
