"I have one thing to say to college kids: SLOW THE HECK DOWN! I remember 28 sounding incredibly 'old' when I was 22, but now I know just how young I am. I know this is rather blunt, but college kids have not had to 'wait' for anything and frankly, neither have I at 28! People these days are getting married late, and starting families later: This is absolutely fine, and smart! ... A lot of college students would be wise to realize that they need not be in any hurry. At this young age, many people don't realize that they have a lot of growing up to do. I certainly didn't realize this at 22, but knowing what I do now, I wouldn't trade the last six years as a single woman for anything, and I know I still have a lot to learn. God has helped me continually grow into the woman he created me to be, and I believe he's preparing me for a life of marriage with someone who is also growing in the same ways I am."
