God Made the Moonlight Awarded the Catholic Writers Guild Seal of Approval
June 15, 2020
I am so thrilled to announce that my first children’s book won the CWG Seal of Approval!
This is a peer-reviewed prize that is awarded quarterly to books that support Catholic beliefs and values and have a high level of editorial integrity. The Seal, or SOA allows readers and bookstores to know that the recipient’s work does not contain any material that would be contrary to our Christian, Catholic faith.
It does not mean that the subject matter is preachy, or specifically about subjects that would only be understood by Catholics. I make this point because the main goal of writing God Made the Moonlight was to celebrate what makes us human. The awe and wonder we experience while gazing at celestial objects like the moon can bring us together in a way that nothing else can, and it is my hope that this book will spark deep conversations about God between parent and child.
I am going to write a blog post series on my conversion from Episcopalian to Catholic because many people have asked me about it over the years. My children’s book is a perfect springboard to discussing what all of the different Christian denominations have in common. It is my belief that we must pull together, now more than ever. And the best way to do that is to educate and inspire our children, and equip them for future challenges to their faith.
