Born in Maple Creek https://www.tradebit.comada 1945.
Moved to Medicine Hat Alberta,in 1947,lived in the Medicine Hat area most of his life,except when he was running away from his drinking https://www.tradebit.comm the age of 14 to 25 his life was a blurr from drinking.
Alcoholism ran on his father’s side of the family.....God only knows how many generations.
In his early 20’s Russ was generally a happy go lucky, fun loving person, and couldn’t understand why he had these weird depressing feelings deep down https://www.tradebit.comy felt like waves of torment and agony and they would come and go https://www.tradebit.com decided to quit his job as a baker at a Woolworth Store in Medicine Hat and go else where and things might change. Before he left town an older lady he worked with, by the name of Tess, gave him a Bible. As they exchanged good-bye’s,Russ mentioned he might be a singer https://www.tradebit.com replied politely,yes maybe in a https://www.tradebit.coms knew that would never happen......
because he hated sunday school when he was little,and now as an older person,even dreaded the thought of going,let alone talking or https://www.tradebit.comhough he forced himself to go to church 3 times anyway thinking it might do something for those rotten feelings that were tearing him apart https://www.tradebit.comever church didn’t help.A girl he sat beside told him he didn’t look like the type,and the preacher said to her he didn’t care for the suit he was wearing.
So Russ wound up in Red Deer Alberta,landed a job in another bakery,and lived in a small basement suite by himself with the Bible beside his bed which tryed to read but couldn’t make much meaning out of any of https://www.tradebit.comfused,and still drinking and mixed up and tormented by his inner demons he went to work daily and did the best he could.
Then one night Russ had an experience he still talks about today 33 years later.
One night while sitting on the edge of his bed in that dark little suite ,a wave of these bad feelings started to manifest and torment him,the feeling was horriffic,very hard to explain,total hopelessness overcame him and he was desperate to get rid of https://www.tradebit.com first he thought he should https://www.tradebit.comn he thought that would be kinda dumb,after all who would https://www.tradebit.com even felt embarrassed at the thought of praying.
A battle in his mind was going strong.
But out of pure desperation he decided to give prayer a shot.
This is what he said,"GOD I DON’T KNOW IF YOUR REAL, OR NOT REAL, BUT IF YOU ARE REAL PLEASE TAKE THIS ROTTEN FEELING OUT OF ME! Instantly something like an electric current touched him starting at the top of his head and cleaned part of this bad stuff out,it felt so good all he said was ’’again ’’ and the power went through him again,and the third time he said ’’again’’ and all the rotten feelings left...........He woke up the next morning feeling well slept and not knowing really what https://www.tradebit.com went to work on great sunny morning and the first thing he noticed was how beautiful the birds were https://www.tradebit.com got to work and a job he hated,(frying donuts) he couldn’t understand why he suddenly loved https://www.tradebit.com the first few days he did the work of 3or4 people combined,and just wanted to help https://www.tradebit.com coffee time he went down stairs for his break and to have a https://www.tradebit.com put the ciggerette near his mouth but couldn’t light it,and to his surprise realised he didn’t want to smoke anymore...no craving nothing,his friends noticed his foul language dissapeared as well,but Russ still struggled with alcohol for 2 more years.
And these 2 years were shared with his wife Marg who he married shortly after this life changing https://www.tradebit.comk to that second day Russ went home and found to his surprise he could now understand the https://www.tradebit.com of the first things he read was in corinthians’’behold you are a new creature in Christ the former things have passed away all things are new’’’WOW!he said thats what happened to me! this book must be true!.Russ joined AA for about a year and found drinking was bad news,he remembered Paul’s thorn while reading the Bible and decided that God’s grace would be sufficient for him one day at a time to quit drinking and so it is for 32 years now.
God’s guidance has led Russ to write about 45 songs now,about addictions,family and his own https://www.tradebit.comides ’’random acts of kindness’’ he has 3 other albums, ’’ he restores’’ the best is yet to come ’’ and ’’ground breaking gospel’’’ has some comical and serious addiction songs on https://www.tradebit.com hope his songs will make a difference in some one some where,and from the sales of tapes and c.d.s in his local area it seems to be happening,as good reports are coming back.
