Start Here by Alex & Brett Harris

Although this book was written by and for teen, I found many of the ideas present could be used by anyone wanting to stretch themselves and get out of their "comfort zone". In fact I felt encouraged and empowered by some of the suggestions found at the end of the book.

I believe that God has a plan for each of us and, as this book shows, He will provide the means and abilities we need in order to fulfill His plans for us.

With the bad press given to teens today, it is refreshing to read about teens who are truly dedicated to God and helping other people in their community and around the world. The teens represented in this book are to be commended not only for their accomplishments but for giving God the credit and glory for them.

I recommend this book and feel it would benefit youth leaders. In fact it should be a must read for everyone who works with and influences today's young people.

This book was reviewed for RandomHouse.com where it may be purchased.
