Stories for the Homeschool Heart, by Patti Maguire Armstrong and Theresa A. Thomas

The winner for Best Catholic Book of 2010 in the 2011 About.com Catholicism Readers' Choice Awards is Stories for the Homeschool Heart, by Patti Maguire Armstrong and Theresa A. Thomas (Bezalel Books). Responding to the award, Cheryl Dickow, the head of publisher Bezalel Books, wrote:

I wanted to publish Stories for the Homeschool Heart-co-authored by Patti Maguire Armstrong and Theresa Thomas-because it is one of those books that continues to delight and surprise you as you read it; and because every Catholic parent, at his or her core, has a "homeschool heart." This book is for everyone who is a parent, a grandparent, an aunt, an uncle. It is a book by Catholics for Catholics.

I'm humbled to receive this sort of honor and am truly filled with gratitude to know that people have embraced what we've tried to accomplish with this book: share stories that make you laugh and cry and know that you are never alone, regardless of what you are facing or how you are faring in your journey towards Heaven.

Patti Maguire Armstrong replied, "We are overwhelmed that our book has won such a prestigious and highly sought-after award!" while her co-author, Theresa A. Thomas, said:

I am thrilled and honored that Stories for the Homeschool Heart has been named About.com's best Catholic book of 2010! I want to thank my co-author Patti Maguire Armstrong for her hard work and encouragement along the way, as well as our wonderful publisher, Bezalel Books. I'd also like to thank all our readers for their support and voting. We hope our book of stories of faith, hope and inspiration will continue to encourage people, and demonstrate that God's loving providence reaches everywhere. He is as active today as in biblical times, leaving His Hand's mark on and performing many miracles for moms and dads of faith. His presence is especially felt in the heart of the home, where Catholic parents endeavor to transmit their faith and real learning to their children.
