Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris

As a former youth leader, I have long been concerned with the lack of drive and passion that some teenagers seem to have for God. Not all, but some teenagers take a lacksadaisical approach to every facet of their lives, which leaves them lacking when they hit their adult years. This book is for those kids who fall for the lies of Satan during these very important teenage years. They can turn their teenage years into the beginning of a life filled with Godly purpose and do not have to live as the world lives. This book was written by teenagers for teenagers and would make a great book for youth leaders to give their youth or for parents to read and pass on to their own teenager.

Great News! I have one copy of Do Hard Things to give away! Scroll down to see how you can get put into the drawing!

About this Book:

With over 10 million hits to their website, Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge in a growing movement of Christian young people who are rebelling against the low expectations of their culture by choosing to “do hard things” for the glory of God.

Written when they were 18 years old, Do Hard Things is the Harris twins’ revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential. Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life and map a clear trajectory for long-term fulfillment and eternal impact.

Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of revolution already in progress challenges the next generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

About the Authors:

Alex and Brett Harris founded in August 2005 and today at age 19 are the most popular Christian teen writers on the Web. The twins are frequent contributors to Focus on the Family’s Boundless webzine, serve as the main speakers for the Rebelution Tour conferences, and have been featured in WORLD magazine, Breakaway, The Old Schoolhouse, and the New York Daily News. Sons of homeschool pioneer Gregg Harris and younger brothers of best-selling author Joshua Harris (I Kissed Dating Goodbye), Alex and Brett live near Portland, Oregon.
