Read with an accent
In the second half of this chapter Matthew Kelley discusses Incremental Spirituality. He means to move things forward one step at a time, "losing weight, paying off debt, writing a book, improving your marriage, running long distances," yada yada yada. I want to take this one step sideways in addition to forward.
Approach these steps with some flair or an accent. Maybe I'll approach my workout goals with a Transilvanian accent. I'll draw on my inner vampire and workout at night. Or I could approach my marriage with a French accent (hugh hugh hugh) if you know what I mean. Or I could approach parenting with a British accent and work on my Super Nanny Skills. I'll start reading my bank statements in Yiddish in hopes my finances will be easier. I know I've just about thrown out every stereotype there is, my apologies. :D
We may approach this book and feel as though we're bad Catholics, or that we'll never be able to attain the 7% status. Lets look at this journey into Dynamic Catholic-hood with some fun and a colorful approach.
