Start Here Blog Tour and GIVEAWAY!!

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.

Author Bio:
Alex and Brett Harris are the coauthors of the best-selling book Do Hard Things, which they wrote at age eighteen. Today the twins speak regularly to audiences of thousands on The Rebelution Tour, maintain a hugely popular online presence 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 Opinion:

I haven't read Do Hard Things.  It has been suggested to me and I intend to, someday!  If this book is any indication, I will enjoy it. 

I enjoyed this book.  It is simplisticly written with tons of ideas and real life experiences for young people to relate to.  They take the idea of doing something for God and make it doable.  The chapters march through a progression of topics that take the reader on the journey of discovering for themselves the passion of following God. 

In the back of the book they have a chapter entitled '100 Hard Things'  which are examples of things that other teens have done and could help spur you on to find your own Hard Things to do.  There are also Discussion Questions that would make this book a great Bible Study/Discussion Group. 

I would recommend this book and will have my daughters read it in a few years. 

I have one copy to give away.  If you would like to win it, just leave a comment.  :)  I will draw the winner on Sunday the 21st.

LOVE Harris books - Sarah reads them and then evangelizes with them to other girls getting them to read them, etc!
