Just practice with an up/down strum.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

And be open to picking the individual strings of a chord to sort of "enunciate" the melody a bit between your strumming.  You'd be amazed how good that can sound when singing the song.  The same thing works when working a guitar.
