“ Scriptural, devotional and practical, these two books present wonderful life lessons that celebrate teens and pre-teens and their faith.” - The Catholic Press
Rochester Hills, MI (PRWEB) June 17, 2010
June 8th was a monumental day for Joseph Karl Publishing who announced today that they have been awarded an outstanding five 1st place awards and one 3rd place award from the Catholic Press Association. This recognition adds to their celebration as Joseph Karl Publishing recently marked their one-year anniversary on March 15th.
Perfect timing, right on target.
Michele Bondi Bottesi, Publisher of Joseph Karl Publishing and Author wrote and released “Your Personal Apostolate: Accepting and Sharing the Love of God” and it was recently awarded 3rd Place in the Small Publisher Category from the Catholic Press Association. Upon announcing the award, Catholic Press Association said, “ This book appealingly presents a simple theme for the lifetime work of every Christian."
Recognition, keeping it in the family.
Fueled by her concern that teens learn much about love from movies, music and social media, she embarked on another mission. To share the truth of God’s love to preteens and teens so they can identify with it plus apply it to their lives. Michele’s mission has apparently resonated in a big way with the Catholic Press Association. Her two new books that were co-authored by her sons, titled, “Your Preteen Apostolate: Accepting and Sharing the Love of God” won 1st Place in the Children’s Book category and 1st Place in the Family Life category. Plus, “Your Teen Apostolate: Accepting and Sharing the Love of God” also won 1st Place in Children’s Books and 1st Place in Family Life categories. On the books for preteens and teens, the Catholic Press Association said, “ Scriptural, devotional and practical, these two books present wonderful life lessons that celebrate teens and preteens and their faith.”
The recognition from the Catholic Press Association didn’t stop there as Michele was also awarded 1st Place for Best Online Blog for Associate/ Freelance Members. With 6 prestigious awards, it’s easy to say it’s truly a family affair. Again, the Catholic Press Association offered glowing remarks. “ A remarkable online site with compelling stories, full of the joy, miracles and storylines that make for a good place to visit and share their lives.”
The books were also recognized and awarded the Seal of Approval from the Catholic Writer’s Guild. The Catholic Writers’ Guild is a non-profit organization comprised of writers, artists, editors, illustrators and allies. The organization is loyal to the teaching authority of the Church.
Upon accepting their 6 awards, Michele Bondi Bottesi, Publisher said, “Joseph Karl Publishing extends our gratitude to the Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada for recognizing our work in The 2010 Catholic Press Association Awards.”
