Do Hard Things: A Review and Giveaway!

Contest is now closed! Thanks for participating! Winner is Tammy! Congratulations! Enjoy this with your home school curriculum!


With over 10 million hits to their website TheRebelution.com, 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.
Alex and Brett have been featured in the New York Times, World Net Daily, and World. Their Rebelution Tour is hitting cities across the country, challenging teens to not meet but exceed our culture’s now expectations for teens.
I am just starting to read this book, and it is super! God has definitely inspired these boys to do mighty things for HIM! Their older brother is Joshua Harris (author of I kissed Dating Goodbye).
Whether you are a teen, parent a teen, or just know a teen, this book is an essential read.
Author: Alex and Brett Harris
