Guest Writer, Dr. Caroline Leaf
The deeper you think the more intelligent you become. This is a scriptural and scientific truth: scripturally we are told throughout the Bible (see Proverbs specifically) to get knowledge, understanding and wisdom; scientifically the deeper you think the more thoughts and memories you will grow inside your brain. This means we are not designed to skim the surface of things, but rather to think things through, to read deeply, to understand and build strong memories.
The deep pursuit of knowledge increases not only our intelligence but also our health. In fact, recent research has shown that better health is another good reason for getting a degree. According to one study led by Dr Walsemann, attaining a degree after 25 years of age is associated with better midlife health and fewer depressive symptoms. About 38% of US citizens attain their highest degree after their mid twenties. Because of the economic downturn more and more people are going back to college later in life to enhance their opportunities for employment or to change career fields. This is good step in the right direction of improving mental and physical health!

And, while we are on the topic of developing our intelligence, let’s talk about the other end of the spectrum…getting our children to read books! Research shows that books in the home are an important factor in determining a child’s education level. In fact, according to a 20-year study done at the University of Nevada, parents who have books in their home increase the level of education their children will attain. They found that having a 500-book library (even with illiterate parents) could propel a child 3.2 years, and sometimes as much as 6 years, further in education on average. And it doesn’t have to be 500 books; the researchers found that having as few as 20 books in the home still has significant impact. My own four children have been exposed to books since they were infants. I would take them to the library from the age of 4 months in order to ingrain a love of reading in them…even if they only sat on the books at first! They are all in their late teens now and to say that they love reading would be a great understatement. The first piece of advice I gave any parent in my private practice, and the piece of advice I would still give to anyone who asked me how to help advance their children’s education, is read read read…and read some more!

The development of deep thinking through books is a great return on investments. But remember, reading the Bible is your greatest return on investment!
