On Tour with Alex and Brett Harris...plus a Giveaway!
There are so many "self-help" books out there, many of which are directed towards teens, though not many of those actually speak to teens on their level. Do Hard Things, the new book by nineteen year old twin brothers Alex and Brett Harris, takes the idea of low expectations in teens and explains, in a teenager's language, how to rebel against that concept.
The boys call it a "rebelution," combining a rebellion against low expectations by growing numbers of teenagers, in short, a new revolution for a different generation. Using scripture, real-life stories, and God's teachings, the boys lay out five powerful ways in which teens can rebel against the expectations set for them and prove themselves to be so much more. The reader gets a great look into real "rebelutions" going on all over the world and the teens that are leading them.
The books evoked excitement and motivation within me and I'm not even a teenager! I wanted to get out of my chair and start doing something, anything really, after reading the words these boys wrote and I really believe that the teens that read this book will have the same sort of reaction. The message is powerful and intense, though completely necessary in today's society. Teens really need someone on their own level to tell them how to be successful and get out of the rut many find themselves in. Through God, Alex and Brett Harris are that voice.
