    Do you believe that teenagers are simply irresponsible and just do whatever they want? That's what this culture in general embraces. However, God does not want His children to be like that. "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." (1 Timothy 4:12) That's what Alex and Brett Harris have tried to do, starting with the Rebelution blog. They have been encouraging young people to do hard things for the glory of God. Their first book, Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations, made a great impact on my teenaged daughter. She and I attended one of their conferences. I am not biased (even though they are fellow Oregonians :)) to say that they are excellent examples/role models for teenagers. In this book, Start Here, they offer practical guidelines to begin doing hard things right where you are. It includes answers to frequently asked questions such as How do I get started?, How do I ask people to support my cause?, How do I keep my motivation for doing hard things pure?, What if I try to do something hard and it doesn't work out? Does that mean I didn't hear God right?, Am I missing out on anything because I'm not doing the "normal" things teens do?, and much more. The authors share from their own experiences and use the stories of other real life rebelutionaries as examples/lessons to learn. The book also includes 100 Hard Things (ideas to get you moving, not just thinking/wishing) and discussion questions (great for small group discussion). I highly recommend this book (and Do Hard Things) to anyone, especially teens. Don't waste your life (at any age); be intentional about how you live...how you use your time, talents, and treasures.

    Every teenager and young adult should read this book! It's a bold call to start living BIG for God, and it shows that living BIG isn't always being famous or BIG in the eyes of the world, but BIG in the eyes of God.

    HIGHLY recommended.

    I bought the sequel to Do Hard Things at my teenage son's request. I read the entire book in a day! What an encouragement to young people these two brothers are!

    Within a day of completing this book, my son had formulated a plan of how to raise money to help a child in Ethiopia that he and his youth group are sponsoring. He had talked it out, worked it out, prayed about it and taken action. He stepped out in faith. He got up in front of a large group of people and spoke about it (this was a major step for him because he really does not like public speaking at all!). These two young men have started a movement among teens that I hope does not ever stop...one that shows them that you are not too young for the Lord to use you for His glory!
