The Catholic Press Association’s Book Awards were announced during the Catholic Press Association’s conference this week.
Here’s a few that you may recognize!
I’m very excited to announce that The Catholic Mom’s Prayer Companion, from the CatholicMom imprint at Ave Maria Press took First Place in the Prayer Collections category. I was blessed to be a contributor, offering some of the daily meditations, but dozens of other Catholic Mom writers contributed to this page-a-day devotion. The book was the brainchild of the talented duo of Lisa Hendey and Sarah Reinhard. Oh yeah, and I almost forgot to mention, CatholicMom.com won a Second Place award as a group blog! Congrats, one and all, to the amazing editors and writers! Take a bow!
Another CatholicMom.com-imprint book at Ave Maria Press also received an award: Divine Mercy for Moms, by Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet took Third Place in the Family Life Category.
All of this has to be very gratifying for the Catholic Mom team and readership — especially in light of last week’s news that CatholicMom.com will be joining the Holy Cross Family Ministries.
Last but not least, Lisa Hendey’s children books series, The Chime Travelers, continues to delight young readers. The Christmas book, #5 in the series, The Strangers at the Manger, won Second Place in the Children’s category.
