20 Things We'd Tell our Twenty-Something Selves By Kelli & Peter Worrall

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 Twentysomething Selves, 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 very lives, sharing about marriage, faith, 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.

Boy do I wish I had this book of wisdom when I was in my twenties.
This book is full of wisdom and is very inspirational.
This couple shares some stories that we all need to hear. Great Christian insight that's very uplifting, not at all pushy or condemning.
Pick up a copy of this book for that twenty-something in your life.
I gave this book 4 stars and I recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by Wynn Wynn Media for my honest review.
