Filled with stories and insights from Alex, Brett, and other real-life rebelutionaries, Start Here is a powerful and practical guide to doing hard things, right where you are.

About The Authors:

Alex and Brett Harris are the coauthors of the best-selling book Do Hard Things, which they wrote when they were eighteen. Today, the twins speak regularly to audiences of thousands on The Rebelution Tour; maintain a large online community 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 Review:

This is the first book by Alex and Brett Harris that I have read and I will definitely be reading their previous work, Do Hard Things, in the future! The Harris brothers write with a honest and openness that will definite attract their main target, teenagers! Start Here is an easy to read book that will really make teens, and actually adults too, think about ways that will bring God's Glory to the world around them, right where they are! It is all about getting off your butt, and out of your comfort zone to bring God to the world around you!

I love that there are young adults like Josh and Brett Harris (and their brother, Joshua Harris, author of Dug Down Deep and I Kissed Dating Goodbye) who will be the generation to reach my children (ages three and 20 months) in the future! These guys are on fire for the Lord and in the never ceasing world of teenage rebellion, this is not only refreshing to see, but so needed! This book not only includes awesome real-life stories from teens and the authors themselves, but also has a wonderful discussion guide included, which would be perfect for youth groups, Bible studies and for awesome discussions between teens and their parents!

I highly recommend this book and give it a resounding thumbs up!

  1. I could start volunteering at the local museum which I have been wanting to do for a long time. This will have to take place as soon as I overcome some health issues which have kept me from doing alot of things.

  9. Forgiveness can sometimes be a hard thing to do, but that's something that can be done right here. The phone can just be picked up.

  11. The one hard thing I do (I am disabled-in a wheelchair) is volunteer at my child's achool and read with them, work in the library, catalog books, etc. This is something so simple but it makes me feel useful and helpful.
