Do Christian Colleges Prepare Women For Marriage?

No, I don't think Christian colleges prepare women at all for marriage or child raising.  I think all Christian colleges should offer courses like this course at the Masters College.  This is the course description ~

Titus 2:3-5 instructs the older women to "admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God will not be discredited."  This passage implies that the younger women learns how to ~

Use time management skills in her home.
Manage the family finances.
Cook nutritious meals.
Practice hospitality.
Joyfully submit to her husband.
Raise her children in the "fear and admonition of the Lord"
{Ephesians 6:4}... that the Word of God will not be discredited.

Can you imagine what a great start women would have in being wives and mothers if they took this class??!!!  Cassi really wanted to go to this college and major in Home Economics.  Ken wasn't interested when he saw the price tag of almost $20,000 per semester when he knew I teach her all of those things for free.

I still think it would be a fabulous idea if all the Christian colleges offered these courses as requirements for all women just as Bible classes are required since the majority of them will one day be wives and mothers.  Also there are very few older women teaching the younger women these skills anymore.  What do you think?  Don't you think this is badly needed in our colleges?  I think many young women would love to take courses on these very important life skills.
