What I'm Reading Now....

I got this book while at the Homeschool Convention last month. It is an easy read. They have a great website as well. http://www.therebelution.com/ Twin brothers decided to go against the low expectation norm set for most teens and do hard things. To be honest, I bought the book thinking my daughters would read it just because the boys are cute....well, I don't care if they think they are cute or not, it is going to be mandatory reading. I think all youth groups should read this as well. The authors' older brother, Josh Harris, wrote the book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye.

Isn't it true that the most people expect of teens is to clean their room, not wreck the car and make good grades? They even have the Muskogee Mayor on their website...an extraordinary teen.

The next generation stands on the brink of a "rebelution."With over 16 million hits to their website TheRebelution.com, 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.

I found out about the Harris boys through an article in Randy Alcorn's Eternal Perspectives Ministries newsletter (which is free by the way). My oldest child is only 10, but I plan to have him spend a lot of time reading the Rebelution site and the Harris books (all the brothers' books). I, too, think it's a great resource!
