Raising Kids to Do Hard Things Is Transforming Entire Families! Your’s Could Be Next!
Many teens today live like orphans in their own families and guests in their own homes. They are not enjoying the benefits of what God has given them. They are drifting away on the waves of modern youth culture. But Christian parents are not helpless. We don’t have to lose our kids. We can start raising our kids the way God tells us to in the Bible.
My sons, Josh, Joel, Alex & Brett Harris, are turning the hearts of teens back to their parents with their Do Hard Things book and conferences. But parents have got to act quickly and turn their hearts back to the interests of their kids. That is where my seminar comes in. If you really want to raise your kids to do hard things, believe me, you can. And the good news is, God has made His way of raising kids a great way to live for the entire family. Let me show you how.
This is a Household Strategy Seminar!
Scripture, history and personal experience teach us that it normally takes at least two generations willing to coordinate their efforts with one another in order for the younger generation to rise above the challenges of life and become “mighty in the land” (Psalm 112:1-4). There is power in teamwork!
The challenge for each family, no matter where you are starting from, is to form a stronger partnership between the young and the old, between the strength of youth and the wisdom of age (Prov. 20:29). That is how you can do hard things together for the glory of God and the good of others. You have to work together.
“My kids aren’t interested.” you might be thinking. But in that you may be wrong. Most teens want to be part of a family that does exciting things together. They just don’t enjoy being bored or lonely, sitting around in a household that never has any adventures. So they find other ways to fill the void. The solution is simple. Do hard things together. Make history together. Launch your kids like rockets into a future that needs godly leaders.
That is why Raising Kids to Do Hard Things can best be understood as a Christian household strategy seminar. Sure, it is a child-training seminar, but not in the way you might think. The fact is, your household as a whole has more influence on each child’s character and competence than parents by themselves. Siblings can make or break the process. So, teamwork can make up for whatever is lacking in your parental skill. It certainly has for mine. My kids run circles around me, and its great!
In other words, “managing your household well” is the best way to “keep your children under control with all dignity” (1 Tim. 3:4). It is the household as a whole that serves as the training ground and incubator of future greatness. Every member plays an important part.
Raising Kids to Do Hard Things teaches Christian families not only why to do hard things, but also how to do hard things together as a family. In the process it addresses every major area of life – personal, family & marriage, home education, family business, ministry hospitality and civic duty. The works.
In this Friday evening and Saturday morning and afternoon seminar you will learn how to make your home and family “a household of strength.”

Got a fantastic email from a dear Brother in the Lord today. He asks…”Who will be your pallbearers?”
A Few Good Men – by Dennis Rainey / Family Life
There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. PROVERBS 18:24
Tim Kimmel, who along with his wife, Darcy, is a frequent speaker at our Weekend to Remember marriage conferences, remembers the two of them going out to eat sometime around his fortieth birthday. As they were waiting for their meal to arrive, he began doodling a crude picture of a casket on his paper napkin.
Turning it around to face his wife, he asked, “Darcy, how many people does it take to carry one of these things?”
“I don’t know,” she answered. “Six. Or eight.”
“Okay, if I were to die tonight,” he asked, “who would you call to be my pallbearers?” She began giving him a name or two, followed by the names of his brothers.
“No, not my brothers. They don’t count. They’d be required to be there anyway. I want you to think of people who wouldn’t feel like they had to come but who would drop whatever they were doing if you called them.” Unfortunately, those names didn’t fire so quickly to mind. And that’s when Tim realized that he couldn’t be sure he had enough real friends to answer his roll call for casket carriers.
That bothered him. He realized that, like so many other men, he had not really worked on building friendships. And that bothered him.
Since that night, Tim has been spending time with men, pouring his life into them. He is choosing to invest himself in people rather than fritter his time away on trivial, temporary matters.
You have a lot of choices in front of you—all kinds of ways you could spend your time and energy in the remaining years of your life. Will you use them to draw you closer to others or more deeply within yourself?
Who would your six or eight pallbearers probably be?
Ask the Lord to show you the value of other people . . . and the mirage of most everything else.
