14. Here are two secrets
Number one, Special K84 speaks the language of his relatives. If you can't couch some of these counterarguments in biblical language, you're lost. These folks know several passages of their Bibles very well, and any point you make that doesn't have a biblical buttress is going to have problems.

Second, be yourself. What SpecialK84 is doing comes from the heart. "I told my grandma she was making the wrong choice," and when SpecialK84 didn't waver on that point, Grandma was decidedly more inclined to listen.

This may or may not translate to your personal situation. Mileage may vary.
