I owe Alex and Brett Harris a huge thank you. Why? Because my son, Parker, and I read their last book, Do Hard Things, together and it had a huge impact on us. In that book, I feel like they captured what every parents dreams for their children. We want them to make the most of their God given gifts. We want them to be sold out to Christ. And we want them to strive to make a difference and not settle for complacency. Alex and Brett did all of those things and more.
Whenever I love a book, I can’t wait for the author to come out with the next one. Well, the waiting is over. Alex and Brett have finally delivered the much-anticipated sequel: Start Here. Not only will this book fuel your God-given dreams, it will give you practical tips on where to start. I’ve found that the first step of faith is always the hardest. Part of it is uncertainty. Part of it is inertia. But this book is the antidote to both of those things. Many dreams die at the hands of "how." We don’t know "how" to make it happen so we give up on what God has put in our hearts. I genuinely believe this book will resurrect the dreams God has put in your heart.
No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, Start Here. --Mark Batterson
