To Educate or Not To Educate Girls
Since I'm new to this blogging world, I've decided to explore it a little. Of course you come across some trash, and then you come across some interesting blogs that make you really think. Biblical Womanhood is a blog that is ultra conservative in their thinking. I'm not endorising it, but I do visit it occasionally. Many times they approach things differently than I do, so it makes me think through things.
Well, recently it posted a link for someone else's blog. One post was about whether girls should head to college or stay at home preparing to be a wife & mother. I was surprised that this is still a discussion worthy topic! Anyone is welcome to give their opinion on that blog.
Sometimes I do wonder if I should have gone to college because at this time I'm definitely not using my degree now. I was an elementary education major, and taught 1 year (and loved it!), but after getting married & moving to PA, there weren't any teacher openings for me. So now I'm an administrative assistant in a small plastics company. I do use what I learned for Sunday School purposes, but other than that all my bulletin board supplies and other teaching supplies sit in plastic bins in our closet. The Lord is definitely in control, and He knows our future, and He wouldn't have led me to that college & degree without a reason, so I am comforted with that. I also do know if I hadn't gone to college, I wouldn't have met my wonderful hubby, so that is a definite plus!
So do you think Christian girls should head to college or stay at home preparing for their role as a wife and mother? Does a college education benefit a Christian young lady? Would love to hear from you! (I do know what I believe, but just curious as to what other people think.)
