Just read an article that said that if you take the money you would spend on a four year liberal arts degree at a private university (say 30,000 a year, including tuition, books, room and board), and invested it when the child is 18,19,20 and 21, by retirement they would have $5,000,000. That's more than most liberal arts gradutes make over their lifetimes.
That made me think a lot. I want my daughter to go to university for a variety of reasons. If she ever wants to become a missionary, for instance, many mission boards require a B.A. But it does give you pause, doesn't it?
About Me: I'm a Christian author of a bunch of books, and a frequent speaker to women's groups and marriage conferences. Best of all, I love homeschooling my daughters, Rebecca and Katie. And I love to knit. Preferably simultaneously.
