20 Things We’d Tell Our Twenty-Something Selves is a book by Kelli and Peter Worrall, which seeks to give advice to all of the twenty-somethings in the world going into their “quarter-life crisis”, the terrifying and confusing time when young adults begin making crazy changes in their lives, from moving out, going to college, and getting married. The Worrall’s are teachers at Moody Bible Institute, and are approached all the time by students seeking advice about the future.
I requested this book from Moody Publishers to review because my friend, a student of Peter Worrall, read this book for a class and loved it, and she recommended it to me.
The Worrall’s use this book to give twenty pieces of advice for millennials growing up and moving out into the world. Each chapter ends with activities, questions, and other readings for the reader to consider. A Bible study to accompany the book is available for free online.
The advice that they gave really hit close to home. There were so many moments when I read a sentence and had to stop reading and sit for a moment to think about how it applied to me. Reading the book felt like reading a letter that was written to me, which reassured me that I wasn’t alone in those things. Many of the things that I learned were things that I had thought about but had never seriously pursued. The authors really show their own voice, and they are friendly, open, relatable, and personal.
I loved this book so much. It was so personal and applicable to me. I highly recommend it and gave it 5/5 stars.
