This is one of those books you could use as a devotional or just as a book to keep you company. The Worralls write as if they were seated across from you on the couch--and I wish they were. ;) They make you laugh with stories, but yet challenge you to think deeper and produce actions consistent with biblical living.

I requested this book for review after a friend reviewed it, and I'm quite pleased to add it to my library. Kelli and Peter Worrall discuss major topics that most 20somethings will end up thinking about. Things like habits, doubts, self-care, sin in yourself and family and others around you, grace, healing, and an eternal perspective. Each chapter begins with a short introduction based on the chapter title. I haven't seen another book do that before, and I enjoyed it very much. Just knowing the topics and the outcome from each chapter even before I started reading it was refreshing.

The Worralls give kind advice, not shirking from calling out sin, but yet providing grace instead of judgment and condemnation. Every chapter includes "actions to consider", "questions for reflection and discussion", and "other things to read" at the end of it. I very much appreciated the practicality of their suggestions, and the reflection questions were excellent. Perhaps one day I will go through and use the book as a devotional and journal my answers. The reading suggestions were also interesting to me, as I'm always on the lookout for reading material.

I love how the Worralls are parents with children, and yet they can write a book specifically for 20somethings. I think many older people are so far from their 20s, that they've forgotten what it's like. And the teenagers are just a little below the 20s, so they aren't able to process it all either. But this couple sounds like they're living in it, and take joy in it. I'm sure it comes from daily counseling and teaching teenagers and 20somethings.

My favorite chapters would be #15 (Embrace Grace) and #16 (Seek Healing) [but it's hard to pick favorites--most of the chapters would have to be "my favorites" :P]. I appreciated the honesty that the Worralls share with their readers--not hiding the messy parts of their lives, but sharing them as they went and giving us insight into how they sought grace and healing for their struggles and challenges. And because of those challenges, they were equipped to teach and counsel others, not because they necessarily have the exact experience, but because they know themselves how God can heal. As they have received grace, so they have given to others throughout this book.

This book blessed me in many ways. I highly recommend it.

*I received this book free from the publishers. The opinions expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review. ( )
