Start Here by Alex and Brett Harris - GIVE AWAY!


ABOUT THE BOOK:
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.

MY THOUGHTS:
The Lord has abundantly blessed the Harris brothers with wisdom and maturity beyond their years. I was blessed to read their first book, and now I am newly challenged and blessed by Start Here. While the primary audience for their work is young people, I firmly believe that adults will also be challenged both spiritually and emotionally by this terrific book.

Start Here is a practical guide to help people discern what God would have them do in their lives to honor Him and reach out and help others in a meaningful way. The Harris brothers look at is and refer to this as “doing hard things”, and for many of us, it is difficult to hear and obey God’s direction in our lives. However, if we begin in the small, daily, seemingly unimportant ways to do our best, reach out to others, serve where we’re planted, then God may indeed reveal larger and more important projects that He’d have us do. More importantly, when we face obstacles or discouragement along the way, we can be assured that God is bigger than these things, and that He is still working amid the conflict to achieve His perfect will. Sometimes that means directing us away from one project and leading us into another, more important plan.


What amazes me about the Harris brothers is their selflessness and willingness to serve. They really are an inspiration to Christians of any age, and they have written a practical, helpful book to encourage others to seek God’s direction in their lives and then confidently go about obeying that direction. I highly recommend Start Here to everyone!
