  • Lindsay

    That video is put together well, it is making more anxious to read the book myself. I am still eagerly awaiting the arrival of my book, I cannot not wait to get my hands on it. Your first book has inspired me so much, I’ve even gotten a few friends of mine to read it & a few who want to read the next one.

  • Great video, Hannah! Can’t wait to get my own copy.

  • Rae

    Awesome!!! I can’t wait to get my hands on my own copy!!!! YEAH!!! Good job, Hannah! And, of course, great job, Alex and Brett on getting your second book out!!!! God bless!!!

  • That was GREAT!!! I LOVED it!

    That was great! I can’t wait to get a copy!!!!

  • Caleb

    Can’t wait! It will join the stack of books i need to read…=)

  • Emily

    Great video! I think that Hannah’s sleuthing around the store and her prompting them to put the books out definitely deserves an autograph! :) I got my book today and can’t wait to read it and be encouraged and challenged!

  • Rebeca

    That was so cute!!!! I got my copy yesterday!!!!!

  • What a cute video:) I got my books today and am TRYING to read them through when I’m not helping mom by changing diapers, taking kids outside, making dinner, and doing school. I’m only like 1/10 of the way through.. :)
    BTW Hannah- cute converse!!!

  • That’s FANTASTIC! Thanks for making the movie Hannah. And everyone, if you haven’t yet bought the book… go by the book.

  • Kate D.

    That is SO cute! :) Great job, Hannah!

    I’m so excited this book is out! I haven’t gotten a copy yet but I hope to soon. Can’t wait for the Rebelution to come to my city in September!!!!!!!!! Yay!!

  • Lindsay

    You guys are going to Georgia three months after me. =-/
    You should come up to the north part of New England! (=

  • Hey Alex & Brett,
    I wanted to let you know that Barnes and Noble is not putting your new book on the shelves. I had to go to Lifeway to buy Start Here, because Barnes and Noble did not have it. Great book so far, I’m in Chapter 3.
    – from Myrtle Beach

  • I’m still waiting for my order to come in (although perhaps not to patiently, whoops)! I was planning on making a video too, for my church back home. But this was just too cute! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Elissa C.

    Really cute! I’m anticipating the arrival of my books :)

  • Lindsay: That is odd! We know that the Barnes and Noble near us has it. Not sure why the one in Myrtle Beach did not. ๐Ÿ˜› Glad you are enjoying the book! :)

  • Thank you everyone for your kind comments! I had no idea it would end up here :P, so this response is very unexpected. I’m looking forward to hearing how God uses this book in people’s lives! :)

    Don’t worry, I will collect on my autographs next time I see Alex and Brett. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Sarah

    Great job, Hannah! I really enjoyed your movie. It made me laugh. My copy shipped yesterday, and I can’t wait to get it so I can read it in like 2 hours! Hehe!

  • Hope

    Haha! Cool video. I have to say I’m jealous because she went to a LifeWay store. There isn’t one in my state and I miss shopping there. :(

    I am patiently waiting for my copy to arrive from CBD. My heart was sad when I saw there was nothing for me in the mail today. Maybe tomorrow!! :)

  • Neat. I need to get on high speed and watch it sometime.

  • Sarah Peรฑa

    Loved it! Great job Hannah! Only you should have bought your copy on the book bomb! ๐Ÿ˜› Just kidding!

    I received my ten copies of “Start Here” yesterday and am having such a great time reading it! Thanks for writing it Alex and Brett! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Sarah ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Lyanne Lopez

    I am super excited to read this book! But honestly, I’m not yet done reading the first book of yours! Yeah, really.. you’re book is really an INSPIRATIONAL book so even if I’m not yet done reading it on my own.. I just can’t wait to share it with my friends! The reason that up to now, I haven’t finished reading it. I’m so blessed and relieved that, our generation today.. is making actions to preach salvation and to change lives! It’s so awesome! Thanks for letting God work upon you.. You really are a History maker! You change lives, and definitely change the world! Thanks to God right? :)) God bless to you guys! Uber!

  • Laura

    Aw! That was so cute! Good job Hannah!

    I can’t wait to get my copy!!! Not too sure when I’ll be able to go out and get it…since I’m currently, stuck in my house/bedroom due to some…annoying illness that I have. However, I will find a way!

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

  • Sarah

    Ok, so I decided to read he first 2 chapters on this website, and now I am going crazy cause Amazon says my copy will be here by next Saturday! Uuuggghhhh! I thought I would get it this past Saturday (yesterday)!

  • Haha! I loved it! ๐Ÿ˜€
