Start Here by Alex & Brett Harris (Giveaway)

You want to do hard things.
But you don’t know where to start.

You are changing the world around you.
But you are tired and burned out.

You feel called to do the extraordinary for God.
But you feel stuck in the ordinary.

Do Hard Things inspired thousands of young people around the world to make the most of the teen years. Now Alex and Brett Harris are back and ready to tackle the questions that Do Hard Things inspired: How do I get started? What do I do when I get discouraged? What’s 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 to doing hard things, right where you are.

Are you ready to take the next step and blast past mediocrity for the glory of God?


This book is geared for the younger crowd, teens and early 20's, but was an interesting read. Alex & Brett Harris have some good advice for young people on how to serve God and be used by Him. The book includes several emails and letters from young people telling of ways they are trying to change their world in big and small ways. A great book for the young person in your life.
