Hi! I'm Mary Fernandez.
Catholic homeschooling mom of five. I launched Humble Housewives to encourage other moms in prayer and the imitation of Holy Mary.
As a busy mamma, you may be feeling tired and overwhelmed. But what I've discovered is that Mary's life holds the solution to every difficulty. We have only to imitate her in order to become truly happy and fulfilled in life. That is, the women that God created us to be.MY STORY
Want to increase your prayer life? It is possible to have a strong prayer life, even if you are a very busy mother!
In my experience, prayer gives me "wings" to carry me through the day. The more time I spend in prayer, the more time I seem to have! My day goes more smoothly, and I am not so tired or overwhelmed.
These are my favorite daily vocal prayers for you to take inspiration from. Use them all, or just pick out a few that you like and add them to your routine.GO TO DAILY PRAYERS
Get the Prayer Book
In the Middle Ages, the laity would frequently make use of devotional books called "books of hours," which included various prayers to be said at specific times throughout the day. This modern book of hours contains over 240 of the most beautiful prayers from tradition and prescribed by Heaven for our times.
“I want you to know how much I like my prayer book! I use it morning and evening. It is nice because it has some of the prayers I was already saying, which means fewer books to carry!” —G.M.Get your copy
