Start Here By Alex & Brett Harris review
You want to do hard things.
But you don’t know where to start.
You are changing the world around you.
But you are tired and burned out.
You feel called to do the extraordinary for God.
But you feel stuck in the ordinary.
Do Hard Things inspired thousands of young people around the world to make the most of the teen years. Now Alex and Brett Harris are back and ready to tackle the questions that Do Hard Things inspired: How do I get started? What do I do when I get discouraged? What’s the best way to inspire others? Filled with stories and insights from Alex, Brett, and other real-life rebelutionaries, Start Here is a powerful and practical guide to doing hard things, right where you are.
Are you ready to take the next step and blast past mediocrity for the glory of God?
(from the back cover)
Start Here, Doing Hard Things Right Where You Are is one of the most inspiring youth books that I have read. Each chapter contains numerous ways that you yourself can do things to glorify God. Authors Alex and Brett Harris, reminds us that just because the thing we do are small, does not mean that they are not hard. We can start doing things for God right where we are. We have to listen to His voice, pray for guidance, then act on the task at hand. Start Here also contains a collection of stories from teens expressing what "small" action they have accomplished to help glorify God. This is the perfect book for youth groups. Although I would like to add
that I believe all ages will get an amazing message from this book.
AND REMEMBER JUST BECAUSE IT'S SMALL DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT'S NOT MIGHTY IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.
Alex and Brett Harris are the coauthors of the best-selling book Do Hard Things, which they wrote at age eighteen. Today the twins speak regularly to audiences of thousands on The Rebelution Tour, maintain a hugely popular online presence through their blog, TheRebelution.com, and have been featured on CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and in the New York Times.
