A couple of years ago I read and recommended all the students, parents, and youth servers at Salem Baptist Church to read the book Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris. These two young twin brothers took on the huge task of not only writing a book but challenging the status quo set by parents, youth pastors, teachers, and teens. If you have not read it and are a teen, have a teen, or work with teens…read it.
After writing the book they began receiving e-mails asking about their parents.
Our dad is our hero. Nobody has influenced us more than he has — both in what we’re doing today, as well as how we think about life. So we’ve encourage him (for a long time) to put his best ideas and insights into a new conference for parents (and teens). It’s called Raising Kids to Do Hard Things, but it’s not your average seminar — it’s more like a strategy session with our dad, who brings a boatload of biblical wisdom and 35 years of practical experience raising us and our siblings.
Raising Kids to Do Hard Things is coming to Atlanta, GA
