Start Here: Doing Hard Things Right Where You Are
ISBN: 9781601422705
Categories: Family & Relationships - Teenagers


The Publisher's Summary:

At the age of eighteen, Alex and Brett Harris wrote Do Hard Things—and launched a movement that would change a generation. Young people around the world were ready to be inspired, ready to move beyond complacency, ready to rebel against society’s low expectations.

Now the highly anticipated companion book, Start Here, answers the questions Alex and Brett have received from thousands of teens on their worldwide conference tour and popular online community: How do I get started? What hard things does God want me to do? How do I keep from getting discouraged or burned out? What is 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 for young people who are ready to take the next step and blast past apathy. Let the rebelution continue.


About the Authors:

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. Raised in Portland , Oregon , the brothers currently attend Patrick Henry College in Virginia .

My Impressions:
I am almost done reading this book and it's definitely one that I want both of my boys to read. It has a straight forward message that is motivating and a really good resource for how to find God's plan for each of us ~ regardless of our age.

The book was written for pre-teens and teens but I feel it also carries a message for everyone at any age. I sure wish this had been written back when I was a teen! What? Oh, I just heard the collective groan of my two boys, "Oh, Mom" for writing that last sentence . :)

Anyway, I'm looking forward to my sons reading this and the lively discussions that I'm sure we'll have as we chat about this book!

Many thanks to WaterBrook Multnomah for Publishing Group for allowing me the opportunity to review this book.
