For Your Teenager This Christmas

Here’s a book for your teenager this Christmas – wish it had been around when my kids were young! Haven’t read it but it looks good – Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations. You can get it here.

It gets a 4 star rating at Amazon; Tim Challies’ review is here – he points out that it might be a good book for some of us former teens to read, also:

Though this book is targeted squarely at teens, I can’t deny that the message rubbed off even on this reader whose teen years are far behind. There is something inspiring in watching teens shake off the low expectations that plague their lives and there is something in it that makes me want to examine where I may also have fallen prey to low expectations. Writing as the proud older brother of these authors, Joshua Harris says “Every former teen needs this book, too. I know I do. There’s no age-limit on the Rebelution. It’s never to late to do hard things.”

If you want to know more about where the authors are coming from, check out their website – Rebelution.
