I’ve been traveling across the United States for the past three months, and have taken advantage of the opportunity to visit friends and family on the way to my destinations. While visiting my grandparents, my grandmother sat down on her couch, patted the cushion, and said, “Laura, why don’t you come sit by me. I have something from church I’d like to share with you.”

Well, of course I thought she would share bible verses or something spiritually based. Imagine my surprise when she pulled out a piece of xeroxed paper titled, “Hysterical Church Bloopers.” Then she proceeded to try and read the sheet of paper. She had to stop several times to dry her eyes or to give me time to catch my breath between bouts of laughter, which made it one of those memorable moments I will always cherish. Therefore, I’d like to dedicate this post to family, and the memories we share with our loved ones.

Now…if you’re ready to laugh (and think you can refrain from being offended), have a look below:  (read to the end…they get better and better)
