Welcome to the last episode of Season 4. Before heading into a break for summer, we’re going out with a bang here!
Today’s show is a little longer than most because I’m bringing in two expert friends to help you get answers to all your questions about Enneagram. I believe this is the most comprehensive, gospel centric overview you will find anywhere.
I really wanted to give you something you can use and I think you’ll find it most helpful as you navigate your relationships…… My prayer has been for this message to be bathed in the words of Jesus to Paul – II Cor 12. “My grace is sufficient for you. And my power shows strong in your weakness.” The version I read on this week’s episode is from The Passion Translation; http://bit.ly/2HcTDCX
My guests will explain how Enneagram is way more than a personality test. It’s a neutral system that can be used as a tool to lead us in a lifestyle of celebrating our gifts and repenting of our weaknesses; of shedding our fig leaves, so to speak…. By confessing our type tendencies and abiding in the Vine, we allow Holy Spirit to transform us from the inside out…
If you’ve been taking in information on the Enneagram that leaves you just “feeling better about your self” or “becoming a better version of your self,” you are being sold short- don’t settle for that. It’s GOT to be about transformation; about becoming holy as He is holy. Enneagram can help us grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ; we take our weaknesses to the altar and allow Him to grow us more and more into His likeness.
My sweet counselor friend Johanna Powell is sharing her deep insights on the matter today. I’ve known Johanna since 1998, so about 20 years; and it’s been so much fun to watch her blossom into her purpose-she’s a born “Supportive Helper/Advisor.” (#2 on Enneagram.)
The best source I’ve found anywhere that speaks to a tangible, real kind of spiritual transformation through Enneagram – and believe me I’ve searched high and low- is Beth McCord’s course. She helps even newbies see that Enneagram is a study in besetting sin and repentance. In this interview, she shows us how the Gospel ties in naturally and beautifully to increase our faith and deepen our relationships.
Beth is an Enneagram 9 and has built an entire career of Enneagram coaching. She and her husband have taught this ancient practice to countless pastors and church staff members in the Nashville area and beyond.

I have new respect for each of these types and I’m thinking of friends and family members who have typed themselves as one of these 9…. So much of this discussion reminds me of Sacred Romance. By John Eldridge. https://amzn.to/2LRMETt
