Publisher's Summary

From viral TED Talk speaker and founder of The World Needs More Love Letters, Hannah Brencher's Come Matter Here is the power listen 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.

decent book to listen to

Her story was relatable, which I enjoyed the most, but it was a little fluffy and kitchy. She has a slight lisp which was a little distracting. There were also some parts that seemed extra-Biblical, like "meeting Jesus twice" and referring to watching The Bachelor as Christian community. She does pinpoint common issues that millennials deal with, though, including myself!

Honest and personal history

I liked the book for the writer honesty.
Sometimes was too personal and she adds a lot I think to the book as calling the Bible this wonderful thing which we all know that is not true. But overall, the book is good for Christian people that are struggling with mental health because focus not only in the mental science, but also in what God can do to help you and is not exaggerated.
