Come Matter Here is a call to stop putting your life on hold until "someday" and start digging your heels into the here and now to build the life God has designed for you.
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.

Run towards a better version of you.
Came across this book in the Apple Books store and really glad I did. It is an overall excellent read. I enjoyed the honesty of the author as many of her struggles, I would argue, are many of the same struggles that countless Christians experience…a lack of faith at times, a desire to do something that matters, and the boredom that sometimes accompanies everyday life. But as Hannah says, you always have a choice, each and every day. You can choose to run from life, or you can choose to run towards a better version of you.
I loved this book so much. I just finished and going to start reading it again.
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.
