Blog Tour: Start Here

Start Here is the newest book written by the Harris brothers. When they were 18 they wrote a book called Do Hard Things that challenges teenagers to not act like typical teenagers. They encouraged teenagers to "do hard things" for the glory of God and rebel against the low expectations that society has placed on them. Start Here continues and helps teenagers figure out what hard things they should take on.

This was a quick and easy read and one I will definitely be holding on to for my teenager to read. I'll be picking up a copy of Do Hard Things as well. The authors do a great job helping teenagers figure out what hard things they can do simply by using their hobbies, skills, and likes. Overall an excellent 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.

  1. I also enjoyed this book! I checked out Do Hard Things at our library awhile ago, but ran out of time to read it. I think I'll check it out again for our 2nd dd to read.

  2. Do Hard Things was great; I expect the same from this book.


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
