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 aspired 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.

This was a good book but not on my top 10 at all. It was basically a memoir of her life almost like journal entries or a blog. It was an easy read being in the story format but wasn't a huge help for me! She is basically a working mom who wants to convert to being more of a Proverbs 31 mom. So she goes through her viewpoint of Prov 31. Being a stay at home mom myself I couldn't relate a "whole" bunch to her stories because I am already the homemaker the nurturer and everything else of the house. However the closing few chapters when she sums up the fact that no matter how hard she tries to be something she realized the most important thing is her relationship and honor she brings to the Lord that I could completely relate with! She made a great point at the end of the book for all moms. The ones who are busy busy and trying to do it all and the ones who are at home trying to be the perfect mom yet always seeming to fail or never get it done. She had some good view points and if you are a working mom outside of the home this is probably a good read for you because it shows you perspective from someone like thats point of view!!

My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife by Sara Horn offers hope to every woman who has ever felt intimidated by that paragon of female virtue. Horn, the wife of a of a Navy Reservist, is a free-lance writer who has always taken pride in her work, which leaves her at odds with the Martha Stewart of the Bible in Proverbs 31 who cooks the meals, sews the clothes, keeps the house clean, harvests crops, sells property, makes money, and has her husband bragging up her at the city gate while her children call her blessed. Horn is not the traditional Christian woman who stays at home, is a genius in the kitchen, and homeschools her children, and proudly so! So her quest to try and live up to this example seems almost humorous, but Horn is sincere in her desire to be a better wife and mother by embracing Martha 31, as she nicknames the unnamed woman. But Horn's husband Cliff is a better cook than she is, leaving her often discontented by his enjoyment of cooking for the family, she never manages to sew anything, and the family's circumstances change radically when Cliff can't find a job, forcing Horn to take a job at a college in North Carolina and uprooting the entire family. But what Horn, and readers, learn that it isn't about whether she can master all of Martha 31's talents, it's about whether Horn is using her God-given talents to the best of her ability to bless her husband and child. This is a vital lesson for women like me who have often felt a failure compared to Martha 31 and her seeming perfection. Horn is an engaging writer, keeping the reader entertained whether her plans are wildly successfully or crashing beyond belief. She offers hope for those of us who will never be Martha Stewart or Martha 31 that God loves us just as we are .

Proverbs 31 has long been upheld as the standard for the Christian wife. It has also been the source of much fear and trepidation among women who want to be good wives but do not think they have a chance when Proverbs 31 is the plumb line. Sara Horn puts these fears to rest. In My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife, Horn tackles each phrase of Proverbs 31 and provides an interpretation suitable for 2011.

Readers will be relieved to find that this is not another book of rules to live by but rather a humorous account of Horn's day-to-day life as she attempts to apply Proverbs 31 to her living one day and one concept at a time. Balancing family, work and personal goals can be challenging. Readers will laugh as they discover that Horn's struggles are their struggles too. They may also find that they are closer to being a Proverbs 31 wife than they ever thought was possible. Through My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife Horn provides a much needed breath of fresh air.
