"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Book Sharing Monday: Do Hard Things

Do Hard Things was the book Heather did for her book club in March.  She is in the Senior Club now.  I, personally, can not say enough good things about this book.  But I asked Heather to write this up as she read through it and discussed it with her peers.  She absolutely loved this book.


Do Hard Things is written by two young boys, Alex and Brett Harris.  They saw the need for young people to step up out of their comfort zone and challenge themselves to: do hard things!!!  They began by setting up a blog and then wrote a book to inspire teens all over not to be complacent in their teen years but to use it as on opportunity to develop character.  They gave examples of teens who 'did hard things' by doing chores with great attitudes to groups of teenagers who organized community events. 

I am one of those teens who have been inspired 'to do hard things'.  I have made out some lists and taken their suggestions to begin my teen years in this way.  I feel challenged.  The book is a very good read and I believe people of all ages, even adults, should read and put these suggestions into action.  


I am so pleased she enjoyed this book.  She has challenged me to read it and I have committed to doing so. But I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed her chatting/sharing with me about this book as she read through it.  She would like to follow this book up with Start Here: Doing Hard Things Right Where You Are. She is highly motivated and I would like to give her every opportunity to excel in this area!  She has been visiting their blog: The Rebelution and enjoys reading through their posts.  She has also made a list of the things she would like to accomplish at this time.  So proud of her for taking up this challenge! :)
