Book review of: 20 Things We'd Tell Our Twentysomething Selves by Kelli & Peter Worrall

20 Things We'd Tell Our Twentysomething Selves

20 Things We'd Tell Our Twentysomething Selves

When I saw the title of this book, I just knew I had to read it! For one thing, I totally qualify because I am personally ''twenty-something''! It was refreshing and interesting to read a book directed specifically towards me and my peers! I want to begin with a large ''thank you'' to the authors for thinking of us and this crucial time in our lives. 
I absolutely loved reading this book; it was the kind that you enjoy reading every week and really pondering each chapter. Some books I find a bore, and many I just whiz through but this one I really enjoyed taking my time over. Each chapter was different and full of important lessons and thoughts. I really hope to even go back and do a an even deeper study of the book, using the questions and discussion points at the end of each chapter as guidelines! 
I was really able to relate to the authors, understanding their struggles and hopes and dreams. And I loved how they were open and humble and shared what God had done in each of their lives before and during marriage! 
I was also pleased that although I might not agree doctrinally with everything this couple may believe in real life, in their book no specific doctrinal issues came up. The book was deep without being controversial. In short, this is a book for all 'twenty-something'' Christians no matter your denomination. Read it and be strengthened and encouraged! 
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
