Review: My So-Called Life As A Submissive Wife by:Sara Horn
About the Book:
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.
About the Author:
Sara Horn is a wife and mom, an author, and founder of Wives of Faith, a military wives ministry. She's a sought-after media guest and writer of numerous articles and books, including My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife and GOD Strong: A Military Wife's Spiritual Survival Guide. She's devoted to her husband, who serves in the U.S. Navy Reserves, crazy about her son, and passionate about her ministry to women.
Sara Horn takes on the Proverbs 31 image of what it means to be the "submissive" wife. She decides to do a year long experiment to explore what that means and entails. I chose to review this book because I myself have always or at least in the last ten years or so of my marriage strived to be a submissive wife. I do feel like alot of things Sara points out as things a submissive wife should do I feel like I already mastered but of course I have been married close to 20 years. One thing to get in the habit of towards this goal is always okay things or talk them through with your husband first before committing to them.
But when I look back on my marriage I see alot of things I would of done differently. But then again on the other hand I feel like I earned everyone of those 19 years. We need to remain diligent in our approach on trying to be the best submissive wife we can be. First of all because God has called us to do it and secondly because we love the man that He has blessed us with to the point of doing all we can to love and support him. Its not a very easy feat but with Gods help we can achieve it.
