Author: Alex and Brett Harris


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 review:

Thanks to Random House for providing me with a copy of the book 'Start Here' for review. Alex and Brett do a great job of answering the question 'Now what?' after challenging the teens of their generation in 'Do Hard Things' with 'Start Here'. The book is short, but full of great ideas of getting young people moving right where God has them now. They remind the young people that the 'hard things' aren't always big and spectacular with lots of pomp - as the world sees, but can be seemingly small, insignificant actions - which the world would hardly notice, but will have lasting impact on the Kingdom. If you enjoyed 'Do Hard Things', and have some questions - this is a great book to help you plow up the ground and dig for the hard thing the Lord has for you. You can order yours today from Random House.
