Journey into the heart of Mary and reflect on the virtues that all Catholic women are called to imitate.
Our Blessed Mother has a heart filled with love for each of us. On our spiritual journeys and in our everyday lives, she lovingly desires to lead us closer to her Son.
Mary, Teach Me to Be Your Daughter: Finding Yourself in the Blessed Mother leads Catholic women on an intimate journey into the life of Mary, the Immaculate Mother of God, and reflects on the ten principal virtues that she possessed. With a unique view into Mary’s day-to-day life, this book not only illuminates the profound virtues that defined Mary’s character but also guides readers on a path of practical application in their own lives.
Written by author Megan Madden, a devoted wife and mother with a special consecration to Our Blessed Mother, this book is a treasure of wisdom on authentic femininity, virtuous womanhood, and the ultimate goal of femininity—imitating Our Lady.
Within the pages of this book, Catholic women will discover:
- Glimpses into how Mary lived as a daughter of God
- The ten traditional virtues of Mary from St. Louis de Montfort and how to apply them to everyday life
- Inspiration and confidence in their identity as a daughter of God
- Practical advice for growing in holiness
- How to deepen their relationship with the Blessed Mother
- Discussion questions for individual reflection or group study
By living out Mary’s virtues with prayerfulness and peace, readers will find themselves drawn closer to the Blessed Mother and uncover new depths to their relationship with her and her Son, as they pray, “Mary, teach me to be your daughter.”
"Mary, Teach Me is more than a book: it’s a contemplative experience for women in any stage or season of life. Whether the Blessed Mother is close to you already or feels like a stranger, this book will deepen your relationship with her, drawing you closer to her Son, Jesus. Everyone needs at least two copies, one to keep and one to give. Prepare to have your heart opened wide and the balm of love poured in."

"St. John Henry Newman pointed out that in countries where Mary is loved, Jesus is loved. In this immensely practical and profoundly rewarding spiritual guidebook, we see how this Marian pattern works in individual lives and families. Grounding herself in the biblical mysteries of Mary, Madden illuminates the power of grace as it operates through the imitation of our Mother Mary. While this book is about attaining mature womanhood, there are wondrous spiritual consolations for both women and men on nearly every page."

"A book written from the heart of someone who has truly been touched by the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Beautifully written, inspired by St. Louis de Montfort’s wisdom, the author touches each Marian virtue, guides the reader into Our Lady’s life and gives practical examples on how to grow in holiness with the Mother of all mothers. A book for every woman who is truly searching for the warm maternal embrace that only Our Lady can give."
