Remember It

Contemplate these questions, then click on each question to see the answer.
1. Why should you never try to copy someone else as a teacher or preacher?
God made you the unique person you are. He’s given you your own voice, face, personality, and life experience. We learn from others to be a good teacher or preacher, but we don’t copy them.
2. Why is it essential that you understand and use your voice effectively?
Our voice is our tool for communication. It can bore the listener or excite the listener. It can move the emotions. It can grab a person’s attention. It can create interest.
3. List several ways that the voice can be used to create interest on the part of the listener.
Use lots of voice inflection. Use pause and silence. Adjust the speed at which you speak. Adjust the volume, and don’t be monotone.

Apply It
