DHT Study

My friend David and I will be leading a study on the book Do Hard Things. We are going to try to inspire eight guy friends to exceed the low expectations given to teenagers by society. We're going to inspire our peers to break the shackles of low expectations and defy the idea that the teenage years are to be spent like a giant vacation. We are compiling notes, questions, and discussion topics. We're already going to use some resources about martyrs, X Games, Eric Liddel, George Washington, and Ecclesiastes 11:8-11. Our peers will be younger- to middle-aged teenage guys. Does anyone have any advice for us?

Hmmmmm, I've done this and didn't really have a very good turn out. I would say that the area I faltered in was consistency. The group I did it with always was having to do something else on the day I was having it. So I would change the schedule to fit to mine and theirs. I realized later that I shouldn't have done that. It made things very unpredictable. So if you can. Stay with a steady schedule if you say Thursday nites, twice a month, do Thursday nites twice a month and don't cancel or re-schedule for anything other than no one showing up. K? Keep up the good work!

Oh and a suggestion. Use Romans 12 on the chapter about Small Hard Things. Small Hard Things can be looked over in huge ways. But I have gone thru Romans 12 privately and the things that it challenges me with is fantastic!
