More About Bob Russell & Rusty Russell
God has blessed Bob Russell with a life much different than one he could have ever imagined. As a young man growing up in northern Pennsylvania, Bob had intended on becoming a high school basketball coach in his hometown. During his senior year of high school, however, Bob realized a desire in his heart to enter the ministry. Soon thereafter, he enrolled in Cincinnati Bible Seminary where he graduated in 1965.
At just twenty-two years of age, Bob became the pastor of Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky. Today that small congregation of 120 members has become one of the largest churches in America, with 18,000 people attending the four worship services every weekend.
Bob and his wife Judy have been married for forty years. They have two married sons who live in Louisville and are active at Southeast, and six grandchildren with whom they enjoy spending their time.
An accomplished author, Bob has written over one-dozen books. He also has a weekly column in "The Lookout", a magazine printed by Standard Publishing. A highly respected speaker, Bob is heard weekly on the Living Word, a nationally syndicated radio program. In his leisure time he enjoys playing golf and is an avid University of Louisville basketball fan.
Bob Russell's gift of humor and insight, along with his unyielding commitment to honesty and integrity, will inspire the hearts of those who listen to consider Biblical truths as they relate to life in contemporary culture.

Great Practical Advice to Change your Attitude! Mar 15, 2004
This is an excellent book. This book makes a great gift because it is a pretty quick read but it packs a lot in a small package! I think the actual title should be Jesus, Lord of your Attitude. Because I think that one's personality is simply their likes and dislikes, and what the Russells discuss in this book is one's attitude; the way one reacts to what happens to them day to day. The book is broken into four sections: "From Griping to Grateful", "From Worry to Peace", "From Bitterness to Forgiveness" and From Depression to Joy". Even if you think that you have a good attitude in life, you may not realize how much you complain on a daily basis. This is the section of the book that I really appreciated. The Russells assert that "Gratitude is the key to personal happiness" Are you comparing yourself to those who have more than you? why? This book says that if you have clothes on your back, a roof over your head and $20 bucks in your pocket then you are richer than 75% of the world! Count your blessings! I think if you take time to give this book a read, you will be buying it for your friends, especially any who are discouraged, depressed, or who worry alot. Hey, it might even be a nice nudge for that person who is always complaining!
