Publisher's Summary

Growing up in the charming South, Brandon Russell didn't realize what life had in store for him. A chance meeting planted the seed that would forever change his course. Graduating from college armed with the lofty goal of changing the world, Brandon tells the story of how he came to know fame. It wasn't until Brandon lost his father to cancer did he realize his father's actual tools would give him his true calling in life. While finishing his parent's basement, Brandon began to see God's plan unfold. Through his life experiences, a near brush with death on September 11, 2001, landing the role that helped shape D-I-Y television, and coming to terms with his calling, Brandon imparts the wisdom he has gained by fully surrendering to faith.
Each life experience is wrapped into an action plan called "The Tools of the Toolbox" to help you create and start living your best life today!

Great tips/reminders to live our lives by!

I wasn't previously familiar with Brandon Russell, but I am now a fan. As a Christian and someone involved in the field of construction, this title piqued my interest. Brandon did a good job of making Biblical principles very relevant with his personal stories. He seemed to be transparent with his life as he put this work together. I would speculate that I am a tiny bit more orthodox in my views than Brandon. (I'm just completing "Decision Making and the Will of God by Garry Friessen. I believe it is very sound and worthwhile for a believer- but it takes a different view in terms of determining if we are God's will.) However, I do not consider my difference on this one issue to be a reason to deduct a star from this fine book. The points that are made are relatable and just good reminders for all of us.
