“Mom, don’t you think it’s weird that when you preach everyone just stares at you blankly?”

Her advice on how I can improve:
1. Don’t start with “Fun Lady”, being all funny and happy
2. Start your sermon
3. When everyone’s bored, give them a break so they can make fun of you–but don’t worry about it.
4. Then have them sit down again. Continue the sermon. When they get bored again, don’t give them a break this time. Instead, dump all the “fun” on them at that point. If you pour out all the fun in the beginning, then they’re bored the rest of the sermon. So save it for the end.
