Publisher's Summary

Discover a 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.

Foreword by Chuck Norris

“One of the most life-changing, family-changing, church-changing, and culture-changing books of this generation.” (Randy Alcorn, best-selling author of Heaven)

Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, Alex and Brett Harris 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 you to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today. Now featuring a conversation guide, 100 real-life examples of hard things tackled by other young people, and stories of young men and women who have taken the book’s charge to heart, Do Hard Things will inspire a new generation of rebelutionaries.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Worth the wait

This book came highly recommended, and it has been on my list for years. I zoomed through it, almost every sentiment echoing in my heart. These brothers nailed it...hard. Now I know where so many youth in our home school community are getting the awesome idea and attitude that they can make a difference for good...now!

Encouraging for all ages

I bought this book to prepare myself for my sons' teenage years even though they are only 6 & 3. I found encouragement in it for myself as well.

Even better the second time

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

A must read book for any teenager!

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!
