From viral TED Talk speaker and founder of The World Needs More Love Letters, Hannah Brencher's Come Matter Here is the power read you need to start living like you mean it here and now.
Life is scary. Adulting is hard. When faced with the challenges of building a life of your own, it’s all too easy to stake your hope and happiness in “someday.” But what if the dotted lines on the map at your feet today mattered just as much as the destination you dream of?
Hannah Brencher, TED Talk speaker and founder of The World Needs More Love Letters, thought Atlanta was her destination. Yet even after she arrived, she found herself in the same old chase for the next best thing…somewhere else. And it left her in a state of anxiety and deep depression.
Our hyper-connected era has led us to believe life should be a highlight reel—where what matters most is perfect beauty, instant success, and ready applause. Yet, as Hannah learned, nothing about faith, relationships, or character is instant. So she took up a new mantra: be where your feet are. Give yourself a permission slip to stop chasing the next big thing, and come matter here. Engage the process as much as you trust the God who lovingly leads you.
If you are tired of running away from your life or tired of running ragged toward the next thing you think will make you feel complete, Come Matter Here will help you do whatever it takes to show up for the life God has for you. Whether you need to make a brave U-turn, take a bold step forward, or finish the next lap with fresh courage, find fuel and inspiration for the journey right here.
Read This If You Need Freedom From Always Trying To Get Somewhere
We have such a tendency to miss what’s in front of us. This world is constantly encouraging/telling/demanding that we constantly move forward, that digging deep translates to getting stuck. Hannah Brencher takes you on a beautiful journey of her own realization that planting where her feet were brought her so much life and freedom. A freedom from romanticizing the past and obsessing over the future. If you have ever moved cities or lived on this earth then you need to read this.
Life lessons for the modern young woman
The way Brencher connects with her readers makes you feel like you’re having a conversation with your oldest friend. She is wise, but also witty and relatable—an Albus Dumbledore meets Mindy Kaling. This book is a must read for any young woman navigating a world that values constant movement and chasing after the next best thing.
Beautiful beyond words.
This book changed me. There is no other way to describe the journey my soul took as I read about heartbreak, forgiveness, and challenging yourself to commit to the uncomfortable.
