Do Hard Things Tour

We have a group of teenagers and parents from our church going to the Rebelution's Do Hard Things tour in Dallas June 28th. Is anyone out in the blogging world going? Or would you consider it? Click here to view the promo video. This is what the conference is about, taken from the Rebelution website:

The Rebelution's Do Hard Things Tour is coming to seven major cities across the United States in 2008. Each conference is a challenging one-day event for teens by teens who believe that our generation is ready for a change. Ready for something that doesn't promise a whole new life if you'll just buy the right pair of jeans or use the right brand of deodorant.

We believe that our generation is ready to rethink what teens are capable of doing and becoming. And we've noticed that once wrong ideas are debunked and cleared away, our generation is quick to choose a better way, even if it's also more difficult.

The Do Hard Things Tour invites you to explore some radical questions:
  • Is it possible that even though teens today have more freedom than any other generation in history, we're actually missing out on some of the best years of our lives?

  • Is it possible that what our culture says about the purpose and potential of the teen years is a lie, and that we are its victims?

  • Is it possible that our teen years give us a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for huge accomplishments -- as individuals and as a generation?

  • And finally, what would our lives look like if we set out on a different path entirely -- a path that required more effort but promised a lot more reward?
We describe that alternative path with three simple words: Do Hard Things.

It sounds great! I'm excited!

I hope you all have a wonderful time at the conference! There is a Do Hard Things coming relatively close to where we live, so some of our friends will be going. We thought about it, but it won't work out this time since we will be just getting back from a big trip and having family over shortly after! Because we will miss it, I would love to hear your thoughts about it and how you were encouraged when you return!
