Start Here by Alex and Brett Harris

Start Here - Doing Hard things Right Where You Are is a book written to encourage young people who want to do great things for the Lord, but don’t know where to start. It is also a collection of stories from young teens and adults who accomplished some impressive tasks. Start Here is a follow-up to Doing Hard Things.

Start Here explains how to decide what God really wants you to do, how to prepare for it, and how to give God the glory when it is done. I was impressed with the way that Brett and Alex encouraged the young people to seek advice from their parents and other older adults with experience. They also explain how to talk with parents about their plans.

There is a list at the back of the book of 100 suggested hard things and some discussion questions for groups. Another thing I liked is that some of these suggested actions are really small things, but still take determination and courage. This is a wonderful book for ages 13 through young adult.
