Kids say the darnedest things: Sherri Shepherd’s son Jeffrey tells her why Sunday School may not work for him

Article By Amber Willis // EEW Magazine reporter

Sherri Shepherd’s rapidly growing and outspoken son isn’t too keen on Sunday School and its demands

In a light-hearted social media post, Sherri Shepherd shares a conversation she had with her adorable son Jeffrey about church.

“The View” lead contributor and devout Christian reveals exactly why her 10-year-old little guy isn’t feeling quite so enthusiastic about Bible class.

“Mommy I tried church & I don't think Sunday School is going to work for me,” Jeffrey told the 48-year-old actress, comedian and author after discovering he had to “memorize the books of the Bible.”

We’ll admit, learning all 66 books—39 Old Testament and 27 New Testament—can be intimidating for anyone.

But we’re sure he’ll be just fine.

After all, Jeffrey has pulled through tougher things.

It didn’t look like Jeffrey would survive and remained in the hospital's intensive care unit for three months.

Shepherd miscarried his twin at 11 weeks.

Though the miracle baby had developmental delays and needed regular physical, speech and occupational therapy, he pulled through just fine.

And now, we get to witness all the cuteness that is Jeffery.

Gotta love it.
