Traditional mothers in this modern age will benefit greatly from this book. I was suprised to know how similar the vocations of motherhood and cloister are. Inspiring, encouraging, and will help you. I've always hated those guilt-tripping "holiness" books that are geared toward some imaginary type of person that the author thinks should exist but I've never encountered. You know, the kind of mom that has endless quiet hours for Scripture reading and daily prayer.
If you don't read your Bible for 30 minutes a day and have daily formal devotions, you aren't living up to your calling. Even if your calling includes waking every three hours at night and changing endless diapers and making endless meals and cleaning endless messes. Don't you know you're supposed to get up at 4: With a wave of the hand and a "pfft! Dom Zeller writes as though he has lived in my brain at some point. Every excuse, every rationalization, every resolve, he somehow knows.
And yet he writes with such understanding and love, with encouragement and practical advice, that rather than instill guilt, it inspires me to cultivate my interior life. What he does is he explains the inherent dignity that is motherhood and housewifery, and shows practical ways that I can actually USE the "drudgery" and constant interruptions as occasions for submitting my will to God's.

He goes against these false notions of theoretical "holiness" that require one to resemble a hermit, and teaches how to "pray without ceasing" in a way that is actually doable. Best of all he does not impose any one method on all, but gives principles to easily apply to my particular situation. Whereas other authors merely make you feel like giving up before you even start, this book makes you think "Hey, I can do that.
This book is so practical and useful. Without talking down to anyone or making me feel guilty about the prayers I am not praying, Van Zeller incorporates practical tips for handing over our time and dedicating our tasks to the Lord. Don't be fooled by the title - it's not just for housewives! I absolutely love this book. I just got it today and I cannot put it down. I think it's a must read for anyone who stays at home or works, or does anything else for that matter. It's refreshing to know that you are exactly where you are supposed to be and it's a great reminder to trust in our Lord.

I admit that this book wasn't what I was expecting when I first came across it. But it has turned out to be the richest and wisest book on the vocation of wife and mother that I have read. A mere 63 pages of text, it is not written in a light, chatty style with "dust jacket sound bites" but rather as an experienced spiritual director speaks to a soul, with directness, depth, and understanding. And it's not to be read in one sitting, but each section taken a little at a time to meditate upon and internalize. It is divided into three sections: Hubert Van Zeller Genre: Sophia Institute Press Release Date: April 1, Pages: This handy guide will show you how to: Find meaning in even the most boring work Pray in the midst of a bustling household Bear the stress of those long days in which the work never seems to end Develop a greater awareness of God s presence -- even amid the diapers and the dirty dishes Learn to rely more on your will and less on emotions, when life seems to be an endless round of drudgery Handle your burdens and sorrows with prayers that are especially fashioned for housewivesLet Holiness for Housewives show you how to find and savor the lasting pleasures that await you in your noble, God-given vocation as a housewife!

Holiness for Housewives (and other working women)
What I had not encountered before and this may due to a lack of disciplined reading on my part was his teaching about obedience. Obedience is an especially important concept for housewives. We are largely autonomous in our work, the scheduling of each day is left up to us. We keep the budget and make most purchases. The discipline of the children is ours to determine and implement.
Yet, we are to be obedient to God, to our husbands, and to the needs of our children. We are to be obedient in a world that has largely forgotten what the word means. It is the compliment that a lover pays to a beloved. If obedience rested solely on the recognition of a superior intelligence, it would not last a week.
We can always persuade ourselves that we know better Far from obedience being the submission that the unintelligent yield to the intelligent, it may on occasion be the exact reverse:
