Education and the Church
I was reading the Ensign and came across this article. It really expresses to me why women in particular should get an education. Many times I find people online that are LDS that criticize women like me because we chose to wait to have children to better ourselves with an education. They understand the importance of an education but they don't understand why women should in most circumstances finish their education before having children. They claim that we are commanded to have children (pretty much ASAP!), which is not true. I know that my children will appreciate that we waited for them so that I could finish school. I will teach them the importance of an education. David has a more dangerous job than most people, so it is important for me to have the ability to support our family if the occasion arises. When our kids are all grown up I don't want to go back to school so I can work. I want to be able to just jump right into a career. Go read the article it's exactly what has been on my mind for the past few years.
