Hey there! I’m Sara Horn and I’d like to get something straight. I do not hate the Proverbs 31 Wife. Any more.
You may know me by the book I wrote, My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife, that was all about the year-long experiment I took trying to follow the Proverbs 31 passage. (By the way – any time you decide you’re going to do an experiment on a passage in the Bible – just be prepared that it’s not going to turn out how you thought it would.)
I’ve written other books. But this book was the first one that changed me, from the inside out, as I was writing it. It’s still changing me.
I’m proof someone can change.
Growing up, I was always an ambitious kid. I believed it when my parents told me I could do anything. And I tried to prove them right.
When I turned in my senior year bio listing all of my accomplishments and activities to the yearbook committee in high school, they sent it back to me to edit for space because it was way too long.
I am married to Cliff, who I like to call Handsome. Handsome and I have celebrated 14 years of marriage and counting. He has put up with a lot of my “can do anything”-ness.
When our son was 2, I was working as a corporate staff writer for a major Christian publisher in Nashville, had just got back from my second trip to the Middle East, I was writing my first book with a well-known celebrity author and I was finishing up classes for my bachelor’s degree. My husband helped set up physics experiments in the kitchen of our little apartment.
I had a lot of goals and dreams for my life, but none of them really included “be the best wife” or “be the best mom.”
Until I went through this experience.
And I realized those were the two things that were the most important. And that none of the other things matter if those weren’t working.
So welcome to my online laboratory of all things cooking and homemaking. I share my cooking adventures and misadventures and other thoughts along the way on marriage, parenting and family.
Occasionally, you may get to hear a “Eureka!” You may also hear a few explosions. I hope through the occasional noise you’ll also hear my heart. And that it will encourage yours.
When I’m not trying to figure out how to make a frozen fruit smoothie or learning yet another lesson in the laundry room, I write books, lead a military wives ministry and speak to women. For my official bio, visit here.
But my biggest blessing is being a wife to Handsome and a mom to Caleb.
Thanks for joining me. It’s good to hear from other wives and moms in this crazy life we call family.
Let’s encourage each other.
