Know that story in the Bible where Jesus fed 5000 people? well... if I could I would make a miracle out of this book and pass it on to as many people as Jesus did. Seriously. In a world that feels all paper and plastic, it feels good to just read about something real and to be able to relate at the deepest and most personal level. This is a purchase you want to make. No matter how old you are because we all deeply want to matter and this book does a good job at reminding you of it. Go get it :)

Yes and Amen. Hannah writes with guts and conviction. She manages to blend no-nonsense with grace, leaving you feeling convicted and inspired and worthy all at the same time. This book makes you want to dig in wherever you are, assuring you that the life waiting on the other side of fear is beyond anything you could hope for. Thank you Hannah, for the bravery with which you bare your heart.

Whenever I think of Hannah Brencher, the word that comes to mind is "committed." This is a woman who is absolutely committed to knowing Jesus, gaining wisdom, and celebrating the beautiful people and moments that make up life. Take one look at Hannah, and you will find this to be true. You'll see a woman who knows the secret to contentment and is willing to share it with everyone she knows. In fact, that's what this book is about. Come Matter Here is a love letter to people who feel caught up in the wrong kind of hustle -- the people who, in their effort to get there, are missing out on the beauty, joy, and opportunities right in front of them. It was such an honor to help Hannah launch this book. It's one that everyone should have on their shelf.

This book is transformative. Hannah Brencher is a gifted writer who does not shy away from vulnerability. Her story deals with the intersection of mental illness and faith, the fight against fear, and the beauty of staying. She points readers to God at every turn without being preach-y or prescriptive; instead, she lets God's work in her life speak the loudest. I cannot recommend "Come Matter Here" highly enough!

Come Matter Here is one of the most honest and relatable books I have read since Hannah’s first book.Through her wit and wisdom Hannah shares her real journey through depression, fear, and trying to find acceptance and how all of the lies can be shattered, if we just stop running and stay. When we stay we start showing up in the life before us, instead of searching for a better version of what has already been given to us. I have laughed, and I have cried in these pages. I have underlined and bracketed more than any other book I have read this year. Hannah’s words cut through me and felt like they were my stories spoken back to me. I connected and am convicted by Come Matter Here. I have a fear struggle that is real. I can’t ignore fear or the fact that it has run my life more than God has. I accepted Christ’s salvation, but surrendered the keys to my heart and life into the hands of fear. Hannah relates, and I relate to her story. I am so thankful that she is alive and writing real and I think you will be too.
