Have you been hearing a lot about the enneagram lately? I know we mentioned it a lot in season one of Speak Life and I have found myself really digging into it over the last year in an effort to understand myself better.

Today’s conversation is with enneagram expert, Beth McCord. Beth is the founder of Your Enneagram Coach and she has been an enneagram speaker, coach, and teacher for over 15 years.

Beth is passionate about coming alongside individuals and helping them re-write their story by allowing them to see that lasting change, meaningful relationships, and a life of deep purpose is possible. This passion is what drove her to create all of the resources available one her website, Your Enneagram Coach, which has become a safe place for individuals and couples to explore the Enneagram from the comfort of their own home.

Combining the gospel and the enneagram has been so instrumental for  Beth and Jeff within their marriage and in their parenting journey as well.  As a result of what they have learned, they hey have co-authored a book called “Becoming Us” which is releasing TODAY! 

On today’s episode, Beth shares so much great insight into what the enneagram is, how it differs from other personality profiles, and how it can allow for an unbelievable amount of growth if you take the time to step into it and learn more. She shares personally about how her faith intersects with what she has learned through the enneagram and how that has challenged her to lean in and listen closely to the still small voice of God. I hope that this conversation encourages you to dig into understanding inward motivations for outward behavior not only within yourself but also those around you. Lawrence Hill once said, “When it comes to understanding others, we rarely tax our imaginations.” For me, the enneagram has become a tool that is continually taxing my imagination when it comes to understanding others and I hope it can become the same gift in your life too!
