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.

Then they map out five powerful ways teens can respond for personal and social change.

The Power of a Praying Teen

In this powerful book, teenagers will discover how learning to pray can change everything. Through prayer, God can lift them above the pressures of their life so they can see His unique plan for their future. Twenty topic chapters help teens have a closer walk with God, say good-bye to negative emotions, attract good relationships, stand free of peer pressure, and be a light for others. Ultimately, they will discover that what's important to them is important to God.
