My So-Called Life as a Submissive Wife

Here it is! I shared this with my newsletter subscribers earlier this week and now I’m sharing it with you – the cover for the new book that comes out next August.

When I showed this to them, several of my friends expressed surprise that this cover isn’t more like the cover for My So-Called LIfe as a Proverbs 31 Wife, but I’m very glad it isn’t. Because they’re two different books and each reveals two very different places in my life God has walked me through. My prayer and hope is that when women look at this cover, they will see that word that our culture has deemed ugly and terrible but they will also see the image of the woman behind it, so free, so at peace  - and they’ll at least be willing to read the story that goes along with it.

And let me just go ahead and say – I did not know what I would discover going into this second experiment, but just like the first – God showed me so much and helped me grow as a wife and in my relationship with Him. And I’ll give you a little taste of what you’ll find in the book – one of the most interesting parts of this year-long experiment in learning about biblical submission was that I saw my husband change just as much, if not more, than I did. You’ll have to wait for the book, though, to find out why or what that exactly means.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Can a modern wife be submissive to her husband?

In her highly anticipated sequel to My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife, author Sara Horn takes on one of the most widely debated subjects for a Christian wife—marital submission.

What does biblical submission look like for wives today? And why is submission viewed as such a dirty word by so many women and men in our culture, including Christians? Can a happily married couple live out the biblical model of submission and be the better for it?

Horn takes on a one-year experiment to seek answers to these questions and to explore what it means to be submissive as a wife and “helper” to her husband. The answers—and her discoveries—may surprise you.

This unique, entertaining, and thought-provoking personal account will challenge women to throw out their preconceived notions of what a submissive wife looks like and seek fresh leading from God for their lives and marriages today.
