MEADVILLE, Pa., Sept. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "A Sunday Kind of Joy: 1 Thessalonians 5:16–18": a touching story of a girl learning to bring prayer into life outside the church. "A Sunday Kind of Joy" is the creation of published author, Joycelyn Strickland-Egans, a public school teacher, Sunday school teacher, and teacher's coach based in Kansas City, Kansas; she nurtures a love for dance, shrimp, Christmas, libraries, and the color yellow.

Strickland-Egans writes, "'Joy, you are a fine example of a role model in our school,' Mr. Boswell began. 'Now let me tell you how this could be perceived as a school offense by some. By constitutional law, schools cannot compose a prayer for students to recite. Students are allowed to have a moment of silence or individual prayer that does not interfere with learning. Students can meet during non-instructional time to pray, read religious texts, or discuss religious topics. Prayer is welcomed, as long as it does not interrupt student studies.'
'This is my understanding as well. Mr. Boswell, no offense, but it seems as if we have some adults that need to be educated also.'
'Exactly.' Then he tore the disciplinary note in half. 'Prayer is a part of my daily devotion. I'd be a hypocrite if I punished anyone for praying. Now, Joy, I do want you to be careful about forcing other people to pray—that is, forcing your religion on them.'"

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Joycelyn Strickland-Egans's new book is a fantastic discussion-starter for educators, Sunday school teachers and Christian parents who want to develop an authentic and fulfilling prayer life for their children.

This wise and entertaining story of Joy takes a realistic look at how a child of God can bring her faith into everyday life the right way and thus set a holy, respectful example for others.
