Publisher's Description

Foster good habits. Press into pain. Never, ever get another perm.

Despite what many think, our twenties aren’t that dead space between youth and real life. Done right, they can be among our most important years.

In 20 Things Wed Tell Our 20-Something Selves, college professors Peter and Kelli Worrall look back on it all—the good, the bad, and the miserable—to give you the best of what they’ve learned. With humility, warmth, and brilliant storytelling, they invite you not only into their wisdom but into their lives, sharing about faith, marriage, drawn-out adoptions, dark nights of the soul, and the God who’s in it all.

20 Things is more than a list of advice; it’s a book that can change your life. Let the trend of your twenties be sowing wisdom, and who knows what the rest of life will bring?

Includes action steps, discussion questions, and ideas for further reading at the end of each chapter.

Editorial Reviews

"When I was ten years old, I wanted to be a vet. Five years later, I still wanted to be one. My first two and a half years of college, my major was pre-vet. And then something happened. I realized I wasn’t cut out for a career in veterinary medicine. And I’m sure I’m not the first person whose life plans were completely changed in my early twenties. In a decade where many people find themselves searching for their identity, it’s comforting to know you’re not alone.

In "20 Things We’d Tell our Twentysomething Selves," husband-and-wife team Peter and Kelli Worrell share their personal struggles and the things they see in their students with readers. Twenty chapters with personal examples, insights, and Biblical scriptures to back them up. From remaining teachable to adjusting expectation to pressing into pain, the Worrells share that life isn’t easy, everything doesn’t fall into place when you leave home and strike out on your own. As a matter of fact, life just might get harder.

At the end of each chapter, readers are given question for reflection and discussion or actions to tasks (actions) to help them explore the concept further. In addition, this couple offers additional resources such as books they’ve referenced, more scripture and even websites.

I read this book a chapter at a time, taking the time to reflect on what I’d just read. While I’m well past my twenties (try double that), several of these chapters were great reminders for me that the outcome of my effort is in God’s hands, that I should be patient, and prepare to be amazed. A great gift for anyone you know who might be graduating high school soon.

*Moody Publishers provided me with a complimentary digital copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest and fair review. All opinions expressed are my own."
