Sara Horn is passionate about encouraging women. Through her books, she writes to share honest life wrapped in biblical truth and challenges women to live out the same.

An award-winning writer, Sara has published numerous articles and more than six books in her decade-long career. She is also the founder of Wives of Faith, a military wives ministry she began in 2006 when her husband prepared to leave for his first deployment to Iraq as a Navy reservist.

Sara's first book, A Greater Freedom: Stories of Faith from Operation Iraqi Freedom, was written with Oliver North and received a nomination for a Gold Medallion, the highest honor given in Christian publishing.

Since then she has focused on subjects very close to her heart as both a militar

Teaching a small group of women can bring about some tremendous good. We can make connections that help someone feel like she belongs. Those same connections can also have eternal potential when that person begins a relationship with Jesus.


But one of the biggest mistakes I see is when the leader is the only one talking.


Nothing frustrates me more than to see a group of eager faces slowly turn in...

Enjoyed this collection of wisdom very much. Looking forward to implementing some of these ideas, particularly the lenses of gospel, identity and discipline as we start our new small group.

“....The wife is the heartbeat of the home. She serves as the thermometer--if she's warm, so is the rest of the family; if she's cold, so is the rest of the family. And if she's an extreme temp--boiling or frigid--the family will follow suit. Calm or chaos comes from her.

I've resisted this responsibility often. It's much easier to point to my husband, the biblically appointed leader of the household, and to examine what I perceive are his flaws, his failures, his lack of whatever. But ultimately, I'm just denying what I really know--that I have a great role to honor and live up to in my marriage and in our home. The questions is, do I embrace it? Or do I run from it? My fear is that I've run from it for a while now. But I'm not running any more.”
Sara Horn, My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife: A One-Year Experiment...and Its Surprising Results

“I'm learning what it means to focus less on me and more on God, because when I focus my attention on him, he enables me to focus my love and my patience on those who matter most to me.

If there's anything I have learned from going through this experiment--which really became much more a challenge of the heart than any kind of domestic diva contest--is that as a wife, as a mom, as a woman, and ultimately as a daughter of Christ, I have much influence. And I can use it for good and for blessing, or I can use it for harm and for cursing.

I want to be the wife who is a blessing to her family, who is praised and remembered, not for the activities or projects I checked off, but for the smiles I wore, the peace I shared, and the deep love of God I hope I instilled wherever I went....”
Sara Horn, My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife: A One-Year Experiment...and Its Surprising Results

“When Cliff has gotten sick in the past, I have not been the best of nursemaids. Especially if there's a lot going on.I want him to be like the paraplegic and just get up and walk. But I am not Jesus and Cliff is only human. And right now he's sick. If I am learning anything from the Proverbs 31 wife, I'm going to guess that being kind and loving to my husband when he's not feeling well is a lesson I need to learn.

So I resist the urge the freak out and moan and complain about all we have to do and that he just needs to suck it up and be a man and push past the fever and phlegm and pack some boxes. Instead, I push him gently into bed, pull the comforter up to his chin, and bring him cold medicine...and tell him I hope he feels better better before I quietly shut the door behind me. And resist running around the house waving my arms in despair.

Six hours later, as I'm packing up the kitchen, I see Cliff walk out of the bedroom with boxes in his hands, heading toward the office. And I breathe a silent prayer of thanks that I have indeed married a man's man. And that Tylenol works really, really well. And that honey gets a lot better results than gasoline.”
