With millions of hits and consistent reader engagement, bloggers and activists Alex and Brett Harris continue to lead the way in a youth revolt against low expectations. This movement has already impacted thousands of teens, parents, and youth workers around the globe.
The surprising message of Do Hard Things will resonate with young people who sense that they are being lulled into mediocrity by the consumer, “me”-obsessed values of pop culture. This book is the must-have manifesto for teens who are ready to attempt more and believe more for their lives, starting now. Do Hard Things weaves persuasive arguments from historical and contemporary sources with personal story and biblical principles to expose the negative effects of “the myth of adolescence,” redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life, and motivate young people to reach for their true potential.
About the Authors
Twin brothers Alex and Brett Harris founded www.therebelution.com at the age of 16 and today (10 million hits later) are cited by many as the most popular Christian teen bloggers on the web. They are frequent authors for Focus On The Family’s young adult ministry Boundless, and have been profiled in numerous publications including the New York Daily News, WORLD Magazine, and The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. Prior to heading up The Rebelution, Alex and Brett distinguished themselves in high school speech and debate, combining for six national titles in two years, including championships in interpretive, platform, and impromptu events. The brothers also benefit from an unusual—for their age—legal and political experience. At age 16 they were accepted as the youngest interns on record at the Supreme Court of Alabama. The following spring they were hired as grassroots directors for four statewide judicial campaigns. They are sons of homeschool pioneer and author Gregg Harris and the younger brothers of Joshua Harris, pastor, speaker and best-selling author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye (more than 1,000,000 copies sold).
