If you could go back in time, what would you tell yourself? Authors Peter and Kelli Worrall did just that in their book, "Twenty Things We'd Tell Our 20-Something Selves."

With age comes wisdom. Moody professors Peter and Kelli Worrall talk about some of the things they wish they had known in their twenties, like the importance of community. Many singles believe community can only be found in marriage, but marriage is just one way to have our need for community met. Since the community influences us in many ways, we must be wise when we choose our friends.

The twenties can be full of ups and downs. Peter and Kelli Worrall, teachers at Moody Bible Institute, recall their twenties—new jobs, new dreams, and especially, new loves. The Worralls tell how they met and eventually married, despite Peter's promise to himself to focus on God rather than girls.

Who's fault is it that you're single? Lisa Anderson, author of "The Dating Manifesto," talks candidly about the reasons some singles find themselves spouse-less. Anderson considers her own dating experience, and reminds singles of one great comfort—that God is sovereign and ultimately good.

Are you eager for marriage? Lisa Anderson, host of the Boundless Show, gives singles advice on how to make their marriage dreams come true. Anderson encourages singles to be in relationship with other singles, whether that's through work, church, or hobbies. Secondly, singles need to find married people who know and love them, who could introduce them to other eligible singles.

Love is gritty. It perseveres even in the hardest of times. Authors Dave and Gloria Furman tell how, four years into marriage, Dave began suffering from a nerve disability in his arms and hands, which makes even a loving touch painful. The Furmans tell what they lost as a couple, and how they've dealt with the loss with Christ's help.

Each of us is broken in some way. Pastor Dave Furman and his wife, Gloria, tell what it's like dealing with a disability in marriage. Dave has reflex dystrophy, which makes the nerves in his hands and arms non-functioning. Gloria shares how God has met her need for help and hope, and trusts that God has them where He needs them.
