Publisher's Description

Author Sara Horn always admired the Proverbs 31 wife, but when she became a busy writer and mother, she deemed this model to be dated and impossible. Or is it? Join Sara as she heads into a one-year domestic experiment and offers full access to see if this biblical model can be embraced by a modern woman even one who can t sew.

With humility and humor, Sara sets out to pursue the Proverbs 31 characteristics through immersing herself in all things domestic, but when her family's situation changes and she must return to a full-time job, she's forced to look at the Proverbs 31 woman with a whole new viewpoint. Through it all, she and readers discover:

  • what it means to be a godly woman and a wife
  • how investing in family and faith refines priorities as a spouse and a parent
  • how mistakes are opportunities for growth

This thought-provoking, surprising, and entertaining personal account will inspire women to try their own experiments in living out God s purpose for their lives.

    This review was written for My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife.
    This book was so good! Sara was honest as she journals her goal of becoming a "Proverbs 31 Wife". I laughed more often than cried; it was refreshing to know I am not alone in my struggles! I would follow this book with My So-Called Life as a Submissive Wife, also written by Sara.

    Oh my goodness! You mean I'm not the only one that isn't the perfect Proverbs 31 wife? This book was such a refreshing take on Proverbs 31. Like the author, most times I read that notorious chapter I end up feeling like I should just beat my head against a wall because there is no way I will ever stack up. Most days it's all I can do to just keep my head above water and I'm not making any progress at all. Reading Sara's experiences with trying to be the perfect Proverbs 31 wife was so freeing for me. It made me realize that I don't have to be perfect, but I shouldn't just give up, I need to at least attempt and strive for better. It was convicting with out being condemning and above all it was filled with refreshing honesty!

    This review was written for My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife.
    Many Christian women, like me, have a love/hate relationship with the wife described in the thirty-first chapter of the Bible's book of Proverbs. While we love the descriptions of opportunities to bloom in many areas, there is also often guilt associated with the measuring stick that seems to show up mentally when comparing ourselves to her.

    Along comes Sara Horn's book to provide some clarity to this often discussed passage from the Bible. Sara details a one year experiment she performed to see if she could in fact, be the Proverbs 31 wife. Reading the book, I found myself laughing with Sara at her cooking struggles (which also sounded hauntingly familiar!), tearing up at her descriptions of how hard it can be to say goodbye to a spouse, and closely identifying with the struggles of trying to measure up to everyone else.

    The good news message of this book is that God never intended for us to try and measure up to a "one size fits all" life plan for every woman. Sara's candor, transparency, and ability to laugh at herself encouraged me. The more I read, the more I thought about how to spend more time focused on my relationships (with my children, husband and God) and less time worry about how I'm doing compared to a broad spectrum ideal. Sara's book encouraged me to come up higher in some areas and give myself a break in others. Most of all, it challenged me to stay connected with the One who made me and understands my capabilities (or lack thereof), better than any other.

    This review was written for My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife.
    This book is a memoir of one year in the life of Sara Horn. Sara set out to complete a one-year experiment to live as the Proverbs 31 Wife. I think she did it.

    The Proverbs 31 Wife has long been touted from pulpits as the woman Believers should aspire to emulate. I have been one of those women who wanted to be like her, but have so often failed. I am a homeschool mom, with many dreams for my children and myself. I have time during the day to think about this woman and work on putting those principles into practice. In this book, Sara brings the Proverbs 31 Wife into the 21st Century and teaches all woman, no matter what their staion, through her successes and failures how we can accomplish such a feat.

    I am married with children and I want to bring my husband "good and not harm all the days of his life." I want my children to "rise up and call me blessed." In My So-Called Life, Sara has brought this woman to life and shown me how I can turn those possibilities into realities. While reading this book, I found myself more aware of my relationship and actions with my husband and children. Was I doing the Proverbs 31 Wife thing to do? No, in many cases no. But I found out how to make just the slightest, smallest change, and it was easily accomplished!

    I recommend this book to any woman who has struggled to become more like the Proverbs 31 Wife. As you read about Sara's experience you will learn how your effort no matter how small can do great things and you will be transformed.

    I must include this thought as part of my book review. Aside from helping me learn how to put Biblical wisdom in practice, this book also gave me another thought. The Proverbs 31 wife is NOT the only woman in the Bible. There are many honorable women in the Bible: Deborah, Ruth, Mary the mother of Jesus, Abigail, Sarah, Lydia, and on and on. They didn't all live like the Proverbs 31 woman. Every woman has her purpose and place, which is something else you will become aware of as you read this book.

    On one final note, I would like to say that Sara saves the most important lesson for last. If you are familiar with the Proverbs 31 Wife, you will know how it ends.

    Disclosure: I received this book free from the author as a result of winning a contest. I was not required to give a favorable review. The opinions and thoughts expressed here are entirely my own.
