Start Here: Doing Hard Things Right Where You Are

Book- Start Here- Doing Hard Things Right Where You Are

By : Alex & Brett Harris

Start Here is the follow up to the book Do Hard Things written by these twin brothers. It is an inspiring book focused on the youth group age; but also good for adults to read. I think this would be a great study done by a church group. The writers tell stories of how teens are doing important things, both big and small, in their world. It shows how teens can make a difference.

The book also has the great message of where our hearts are when we do these great things. It is all for the glory of the Lord, not for our own selfish glory. This is such an important things for us all to remember.

The First Step to this way of thinking is outlined in chapter 2. It says that nothing we do for the Lord is insignificant. When we come to realize this, we will not be upset by doing the small things. “ Remember, neither fame nor obscurity is the goal. The goal is obedience to God, effectiveness in whatever he gives us to do, and a heart that glorifies Him.”

I definitely recommend this book for all Christian audiences, especially teens. It would be a great study for youth groups.

This book was provided to me by Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers to review.
