Welcome to Humble Housewives

Hi! I'm Mary Fernandez. I'm a Catholic, wife, and homeschooling mom of 4 kids (age 2 to 10). I launched Humble Housewives to encourage other moms in prayer and the imitation of Holy Mary.

If you're anything like me, you may be feeling tired and overwhelmed by the thought of adding "one more thing" to your daily schedule (i.e. prayer and meditation). 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.

Daily Prayers for Catholic Mothers

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.

My daughter, I wish that thou reap for thyself the fruits which thou desirest from the description of the mysteries and sacraments of my holy life; and let the reward of thy labors be the greater purity and perfection of thy life, disposing thyself by the grace of the Most High to practice what thou hearest.

It is the will of my divine Son, that thou exert all thy powers toward that which I shall teach thee, and that thou apply thyself with all thy heart to my virtues and works.

Hear me with attentive faith, for I will speak to thee words of eternal life and teach thee the most holy things of a perfect Christian life and what is most acceptable to God.

–The Blessed Virgin Mary to Ven. Mary of Agreda (The Mystical City of God: Book I, Chapter XVI)
