Start Here by Alex & Brett Harris

The teenaged Harris brothers wrote Do Hard Things two years ago as a challenge to their generation. That book marked the beginning of a movement called the “rebolution.” Start Here is a personal field guide to jumping in and getting involved in rebelling against low expectation for teens.
This book is full of practical ideas for standing up for what you believe, getting going when you feel stuck, understanding God’s will, and many more issues. The many stories of teens that have done the hard thing are very inspiring.
The authors do a great job of helping the reader identify what hard thing God wants him or her to do. They also helpfully explain the challenge of what the readers wants to do as compared to what the reader can do.
The Harris twins view the teen years as a time of preparation for adulthood (not a time to goof off). They don’t discount having fun but they put it in its proper place.
If you were challenged by their first book but just did not know how to get started, this book is for you.
I highly recommend this book to youth pastors. The discussion questions at the back makes this a great book for group study. Be prepared to see your teens challenged and ready to get to work.

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
