Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris

Five stars

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.

Do Hard Things is a must read for all teens. It’s a challenge in the form of a book. It’s a call to use your life in the best way for God’s glory.

Teens have given themselves a bad name. They’re lazy, irresponsible, and not trust worthy. And people have come to expect that of all teens. So, in turn, teens expect nothing more for themselves. But in this book the authors call teens to a higher way of living and unveil the potential within each and every person.

This book will motivate you to get yourself off the couch and doing something for the Lord. This book takes Ephesians 9:10 to the next level. They don’t say it’ll be easy, rebelling against a world full of low expectations will never be easy. But it will always be well worth it in the end and glorifying the our Lord the King. It has taught me the true meaning of doing hard things.

“Courage is not the absence of fear. It is rather not letting your fear control your actions”

― Brett Harris, Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations

“all effort—even failed effort—produces muscle.”

― Alex Harris, Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations

Your turn!

Do you believe the lies of the world that you don’t have to achieve much in life? Or are you living your life meaningfully for the Lord? Have you read Do Hard Things?

Blessings, Allyson

  1. Ooh, I love this!! That’s true though from what I’ve noticed with other teens; we, um, tend to have a bad rep. So it’s harder to (in a sense) “prove yourself” that you’re not like the others.

    Wonderful post! Man, there’s so many books now I need to go investigate…LOL!!
