9780736952835: My So-Called Life as a Submissive Wife: A One-Year Experiment...and Its Liberating Results

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 and the founder of Wives of Faith, a ministry for military wives. She’s written numerous articles and books, including My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife and My So-Called Life as a Submissive Wife. She’s devoted to her husband, who serves in the US Navy Reserves, crazy about her son, and passionate about her ministry to women.

From Publishers Weekly:

In a sequel to her My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife, the founder of Wives of Faith, a ministry to military wives, follows a One-Year Experiment... and Its Liberating Results by being submissive to her husband. Horn chronicles her experiences in somewhat disorganized journal fashion, offering thoughts and lessons learned during the process, but doesn't tackle the subject in a broader or theological sense. Humor laces anecdotes about how she doesn't always succeed at being a helper; how her husband doesn't always understand to be the leader (one hopes she submissively asked his permission to include his failures); and how her efforts to put God first do seem to result in improvements in their home. Just what does it mean to be a submissive wife in today's culture which demands equality and just how far can she take charge to ensure her husband's leadership? This book will appeal to those who already are committed to submitting to their husbands, but won't satisfy those looking for debate on the interpretation of biblical verses requiring that wives submit nor will it be very useful for those whose husbands are not as easy to get along with as Horn's. Agency: Alive Communications. (Aug.)
