As a youth pastor, I am always looking for any kind of tool to help turn up the fire in the lives of our youth. Do Hard Things, by Alex and Brett Harris (Multnomah), is one of the most powerful books for teens to come along in decades.

If you want to see your teen supercharged for Christ, get this book into their hands!

Summary:

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.

Well, I am a teen, but I'm not commenting to win a copy of my book. :wink:

I wanted to (1) thank you for your kind review, and (2) ask whether you'd be willing to post your review on the book's Amazon.com page?

What you shared at the top of your post (your own words) would be very helpful to people considering whether to purchase the book, and it would be a great blessing to Alex and me for even more people to read it.

In Christ Alone,
Brett Harris
