The next generation stands on the brink of a “rebelution.”
With over 35 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.
This Mom's Review of Do Hard Things:
Comparing today's teenage generation with the teenage authors and contributors to this book, I am in awe. I look at where I've allowed my own teenager's and tween's life to head and I am convicted to make some changes. I sadly admit that I'm one of those people that don't expect much from a teenager. I've let my son be content with his video games and doing average in school.
My son was once ‘on fire' for the Lord, praying and reading His Bible, asking questions, and even sharing God with others. His desire has recently fizzled. I've been convicted to make some changes in our household, yet I've just sat here. Reading this book has put some push behind my guilty conscience. My son and I are going to read this book together and hopefully he'll see where he can make some improvements with how he uses his God-given time here on earth.
Being written by teenagers, this book doesn't feel threatening, like a parent pointing a finger. Instead, the teenager reading the book should feel some positive peer pressure to do something more with his or her life.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for my honest review. You can grab a copy for you and your teen from Amazon.com or your local bookstore. In addition, you can read chapter one online and download the free online study guide.
