Start Here- Book Review



I have a give a way copy of this book! Send me an email if you want it.
I just read a great book for teens and thier parents. This is the second book that the Harris brothers have written. I did not have the pleasure to read the first book and I would definately recommending getting it for your youth first.

It is also great reading for a youth group or for a church library or a youth instructor or leader or anyone working with youth.

This book Start Here piggy backs on the concepts that are introduced in the first book. Do Hard Things inspired young people around the world to make the most of their teen years.

The second book was inspired by questions asked by young people after reading the first book. Questions like: How do I get started? What do I do when I get discouraged?

All these questions and more are answered in Start Here. This is a small book only 137 pages of text. It also includes discussion questions. And a section on Notes that discribes about some of the projects mentioned in the book.

This is an easy to read book. It includes inspiring short stories of how other youth have stepped out, stepped up and began serving God.

Here is a summary and background info. from the publisher.

Summary:
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.
