Start Here by Alex and Brett Harris
This highly anticipated companion to Do Hard Things is filled with stories and insights from Alex and Brett Harris and other rebelutionaries who are making a difference right where they are. Start Here is a powerful and practical guide for young people who are ready to blast past apathy and “do hard things” for the glory of God.
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 Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. I'm hoping my girls will chose to read it too. It has such great stories about teenagers taking the risk and doing hard things for God. It's definitely very inspiring and is making me rethink things in my own life. It gives steps and ideas about what hard things you might do and how to go about getting started. My favorite parts were all the stories about kids that have actually stepped out and done something hard. They also talk about how to keep the right attitude and how to be humble when you are being praised for what you have done. They use scripture to make their point and they actually do a very good job of it. If you have teens, I would highly recommend this book. Actually, you might want to have them start with the first book Do Hard Things first.
