Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris and Book Giveaway!

I'm giving away 2 brand new copies of today's book! Leave a comment with your email address so I can contact you if you win. I'll pick a name and announce the winners on Monday, April 21. Good luck!

With over 10 million hits to their website, Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge in a growing 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.

Written when they were 18 years old, 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 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 the next generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Alex and Brett Harris founded in August 2005 and today at age 19 are the most popular Christian teen writers on the Web. The twins are frequent contributors to Focus on the Family’s Boundless webzine, serve as the main speakers for the Rebelution Tour conferences, and have been featured in WORLD magazine, Breakaway, The Old Schoolhouse, and the New York Daily News. Sons of homeschool pioneer Gregg Harris and younger brothers of best-selling author Joshua Harris (I Kissed Dating Goodbye), Alex and Brett live near Portland, Oregon


  1. Sounds interesting...would be nice to get a teen's perspective, then would most likely pass it on to my niece, who is quickly approaching 'teenhood'. Thanks!


  2. sounds like my 2 teens would enjoy reading this :)

  3. Deborah,
    What a wonderful blog. If I had the time (and wasn't a writer, but could just be a big reader again) I'd love to have a blog just like yours! I also share your love of movies--I write a column called "Media and the Home" for, as a sidekick to my novel writing, and because my family is big on "media," particularly movies and books.
    Anyway, you're sweet to host giveaways and when my new book from Harvest House comes out in December, I'll be happy to donate a book for a giveaway here. Looking forward to visiting you again, dear speedy reader.

  16. That's awesome how they're related to Joshua. I have 2 of his books and plan on giving them to my girls to read...down the road. My girls are 15 and 16 and I know this would be awesome for them to read. It would probably be good for my oldest and her youth leadership team to read! We'll suggest it to our Youth pastor! Thanks for the opportunity to win this book and introducing us to "kids" who want to be serious about their walk with God!

    In Him,
