Doing Hard Things & Making A Difference
This was published on my blog on April 18, 2010. Some how it was taken down so I'm adding it here in February 2015.
We’ve been talking about choosing change and doing hard things. If you want to
be inspired to change, to take risks, to help others – I have two books to recommend.
Three Cups of Tea:
One Man's Mission to Promote Peace...One School at a Time
By Greg Mortenson
This is an inspiring true story of one man’s determination to build schools in a remote and dangerous area of Pakistan. Mortenson, in the Himalaya’s mountain climbing, ran into difficulty and was rescued by the people in a remote village. He promised he would return and build them a school. And he did – plus much more.
Do Hard Things: A Teen-age Rebellion Against Low Expectations
By Alex and Brett Harris
This book was written by the Harris twins when they were 18 years old. They had already done amazing things with their life. Read and be amazed and challenged.
Is anything too hard for the Lord? Genesis 18:14
Both of these books challenge and inspire me to do God’s will even when it’s hard.
