Tennessee Author Teaches Children How To Cope With Disappointment

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

In his new children’s book, “Sundays in the Sun,” author Lane Davis shows children how important prayer is in coping with disappointment. 

Review for Sundays in the Sun:

Sometimes life just doesn’t get the memo. The “rainstorms” of people’s days get in the way of their hopes and dreams. It is hard enough to accept disappointment as an adult. In the story, readers meet Camden who had been waiting for weeks to share a day at the park with his best friend Gracie. When the big day finally arrives, the black rain clouds outside his bedroom window have made other plans. Readers will find out how Camden and Gracie face the dreary day and how prayer is introduced to two young hearts by two loving sets of parents. 

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

Mr. Davis received his B.A. in sport administration from UTC and his M.S. degree in sport management from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. He is currently the director of youth and adult sports at the Athens-McMinn Family YMCA in Athens, Tenn., where he spends much of his time working with youth and families within the community. Working with youth groups and local churches in and around his community, he has witnessed the need for resurgence in teaching children Christian values and spending more quality time as a family.
