Book Review - Start Here

Start Here
By: 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 inspried, ready to move beyond complacency, ready to revel 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 black past apathy. Let the rebelution continue.
This book is aimed at teens and young adults and it would definitely be something I would recommend to young people. It's motivational, inspiring, and makes you want to get up off the couch and do something for God right now! I love the personal stories by people that have done things for the Lord and how it changed their lives as well as touching other people around them. It is amazing to me how God can honor our little missions we do for Him and make them much more than we could ever imagine.
Alex and Brett give insight of how to get started. They recommend using the gifts that you have. So many times those of us who are afraid to do public speaking think that we should do public speaking for God. This isn't necessarily so. God gives us gifts for a reason and we can start with the things we all ready do well and enjoy doing. I don't know why this was such a revelation to me, but it was! We all can do something for the Lord - touch other people's lives - and go outside of our own little worlds for God.
This book is not only great for teens and young adults, it's great for us adults to rethink what we're doing and to maybe get out there and start doing things for the Lord. It's never too late to do that and this book will inspire you and show you how to get started. I highly recommend it!
