Author Bio

Danny Holland has studied youth culture professionally for nearly two decades, traveling across the nation and world, talking to thousands of teenagers and training those who work with them. He has spoken to nearly one million people, including giving keynote and seminar addresses at American Christian School’s International seminars and Youth Specialties conferences and many other professional seminars. His first book, Reaching Teens in Their Natural Habitat (WaterBrook), released in 2006. His love for teenagers has motivated him to devote his life to impacting and connecting with them as well as teaching other caring adults how to do the same. His passion is to help teens avoid painful regrets and make good choices.

As a certified instructor for law enforcement officers in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Danny has conducted his presentations on youth culture, media influence, teen violence, and drug use to thousands of law enforcement officers. His programs have been adopted by some of the nation’s top law enforcement training organizations. He trains school police and security officers across the nation, as well as many school counselors and administrators. His presentations have been endorsed by professionals from diversified backgrounds, including members of Congress, school administrators, and even the president of a national parenting group.

Formerly an associate pastor at New Hope Christian Fellowship in Hawaii—one of the 25 most influential churches in America according to a 2005 survey—and the former executive director of True Lies and founder of Parent and Teen Universities Inc., Danny is now an internationally sought after speaker and author based in Virginia.

You Are Here by speaker and author Danny Holland could be better titled, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Self-Help. It contains all of the advice you know and love, with half the fat. It may not say anything that has never been said before, but it delivers this information quickly and clearly, without anything unnecessary.

Finding God’s purpose for your life can be confusing, and Holland aims to guide readers through the process as he explores the subject of vocation in a very casual way. You Are Here draws many comparisons between finding your purpose and canoeing on the open ocean: both can be exciting, challenging, and dangerous. The metaphors employed in every chapter engage the reader and illustrate the author’s points well, sometimes sounding so vivid that a Hawaiian breeze seems to be turning the pages for you. Although the book is well-written and may even teach you something about ocean canoeing, the discussion of God’s unique purpose for everyone’s life never goes much deeper than the water along the shoreline.

Content-wise, You Are Here is complete without becoming complex. The sentences are short and poignant, meant more to encourage the reader than to lead anyone in deep contemplation. This is a cursory glance into life calling; readers probably won’t have any epiphanies while reading this book, but it may just point them in the right direction. Section one guides through finding what God has in store for individuals. In section two, Holland explores the characteristics that will help to get readers there, with each quality illustrated as one of the seats in a professional rowing team. Finally, section three recaps and applies the first two parts of the book and adds some final words of wisdom. You Are Here adequately covers how to prepare for God’s purpose in life without becoming overly theological. Simply put, this book probably won’t redefine the reader’s life. However, if someone wants a laid-back text that will raise spirits and point him in the right direction, then maybe You Are Here will be the road map that can guide to where God can use him at full potential. – Jason Warne, Christian Book
