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.
What Readers are Saying about Submissive Wife
“I highly recommend this for every engaged or married woman to read if they truly want to honor God and their husband in their relationship. This isn’t a throwback, obey your husband without thought, male dominating concept. This is the way to a marriage that really is forever after.” ~ Blog Reviewer, Sunflowers At Home
“This book was an encouragement as Sara wrote from the heart, was honest, and shared her highs and lows of this experiment. What she learned, she shares with us amidst stories of her daily life. I laughed, cried, and nodded my head many times as I read this book.” ~ Sadie, Amazon Reviewer
“This book sat on my wish list for months waiting for it to be released and it was well worth the wait! One of the reasons I loved this book is each chapter reached out to my life through hers.

This book will open up and welcome you in!” ~ Katie, Amazon Reviewer
“Sara’s memoir is honest and thought-provoking, spiritual but not in a heavy-handed way, and best of all, real.” ~ Pattie, Amazon Review
“Sara Horn writes in a way that does not preach or demand. She takes on the challenge of going against the cultural norm, and looks to see what God wants from a Christian wife. While this is a one year experiment based on HER experiences, I was able to relate with almost every situation. I was able to take a step back after reading each chapter, and think about how I too could be a better wife and helper to my husband.” ~ Erin. Amazon Review
