Review: 20 Things We’d Tell Our Twenty-something Selves

20 Things We'd Tell Our Twentysomething Selves






How to Make the Most of Your 20s

Despite what many think, your twenties aren’t that dead space between youth and real life. Life is now, and how you spend these years will shape your future for better or worse.

In 20 Things Wed Tell Our Twenty-something Selves, professors Peter and Kelli Worrall help you spend them well. They look back on the good, bad, and miserable to share the best of what they’ve learned, like why you should:

Dig deeper than your doubt
Foster good habits
Take risks
Adjust your expectations
Press into pain
and more

With warm, brilliant storytelling, the Worralls invite you into their life and home. They share about faith, marriage, drawn-out adoptions, dark nights of the soul, and the God who’s in it all. Wise, humble, caring, fun, they’re the kind of mentors everyone wants but few have. And now they’re yours.

20 Things is more than good 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.

20 Things Wed Tell Our Twenty-something Selves by both Kelli and Peter Worrall, I learned a lot of things I did wish I could tell my twenty-something self. I am in my last year of my twenties. This book held so many things I could have put to use. Knowledge I wish I had incorporated years ago. Like adjusting my expectations…sometimes, I set my expectations too high and either I, myself, or others will fail those expectations. This self-help journey was an eye opener. I can definitely say that I will be referring back to these pages throughout my lifetime. The great thing about it, was that it can be used and applied towards any adult. Our twenty-something selves is the main area in which we all, including myself, wish we knew the things we did, today. Overall, it was well-organized and well-written.
