A growing movement of young people is rebelling against the low expectations of today's culture by choosing to "do hard things" for the glory of God. And Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge. 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. Then they map out five powerful ways teens can respond for personal and social change.
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 an already happening teen revolution challenges a generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

"Alex and Brett Harris are two extraordinary young men with a revolutionary message. In a culture where laziness and ease is often the order of the day for teenagers, Do Hard Things presents a radical and provocative alternative. I heartily recommend this book." (R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary)
I read do hard things before with my youth group when I was 20. It was very good then but listening to it 5 years later is even better. As a 25 year I got more out of this than half of my teens in youth group. But I think that's okay. I think even as a young adult I can still rebel against low expectations.
You won't be disappointed in getting this book! :D
My 10 and 13-year- old kids started listening begrudgingly. Soon, they were asking to continue. This important concept would not have resonated with them in the same way if an adult had written it. I'm so thankful to Brett and Alex for sharing their insights. Not to mention, I'm inspired to do hard things too!
Alex and Brett are a God send to the young people of our society! Every young person should at least read this book to know that there is a alternative lifestyle to that which is portrayed on TV, movies, and the Internet. This book is proof that there is Great hope for the world in which we live. Thank you Alex and Brett for your courage and strength in God!!
I made it required reading for all of my kids (we have 5) when they turn 12 or so after reading it myself. It's inspiring and challenging even for an adult. Worth the listen for anyone wishing they were accomplishing more (which should be everyone).
I believe that everyone can take something different from a book read, but I think that if you give this book a chance you will find some. Maybe something life changing and beautiful!
