Start Here ~ Book Review & GIVEAWAY

Have you read any new good books lately?? :)

One of the many blessings of *She Sparkles* is the opportunity to read and review new books! And my favorite part is sharing the blessing with you, my dear bloggy friend, with book giveways!!

I was thrilled when I was recently asked to participate in a Blog Tour featuring Alex and Brett Harris! I first heard about these young authors from my best friend Julie. Julie was raving about a book she was reading called Do Hard Things. One day I picked up this book while I was at the bookstore ~ and spent the next 4 hours devouring it! It is fantastic! Check it out ~ and then be amazed (like me) that these brothers wrote this book when they were eighteen!!

Imagine my delight when I was asked to review their latest book
Start Here: Doing Hard Things Right Where You Are. Here's a brief summary:

"You want to do hard things.
But you don't know where to start.

You are changing the world around you.
But you are tired and burned out.

You feel called to do the extraordinary for God.
But you feel stuck in the ordinary.

Are you ready to take the next step and blast past mediocrity for the glory of God? Start here.

Do Hard Things inspired thousands of young people around the world to make the most of the teen years. Now Alex and Brett Harris are back and ready to tackle the questions... How do I get started? What do I do when I get discouraged?.... Filled with stories and insights from Alex, Brett, and other real-life rebelutionaires, START HERE is a powerful and practical guide to doing hard things, right where you are"


I loved this book! Although the target audience is much younger than my age group, I would recommend this book to everyone! I want to sit and read it with my son Jake who is 15. I want to read it with my husband and dream about how our family can change the world. And I want you to check it out ~ especially the list of 100 Hard Things you can do (to impact the Kingdom)! Once you read this little book, you too will be inspired to do hard things, right where you are.

Obviously I'm thrilled to be able to send a copy of this book to a *She Sparkles* reader. :)

Sounds like a great book. An inspiring book I am now reading is "A Family of Value" by John Rosemond. Wish I had read it 20 years ago when my kids were little!

It is not as much a book as a bible study but it is inspiring, Esther by Beth Moore.
I am excited about this giveaway. I have a child in college, 2 in HS, and 1 in 5th grade.

Smiles!
