On this week’s episode of Cultivating the Lovely, host MacKenzie Koppa Talks with Beth McCord of YourEnneagramCoach.com. Beth and her husband Jeff live outside of Nashville, Tennessee and have two grown children. She has been teaching people about the enneagram personality type tool for 17 years. You can now pre-order Beth and Jeff’s book Becoming Us: Using the Enneagram to Create a Thriving, Gospel-Centered Marriage. Beth and MacKenzie are taking a deep dive into all things enneagram today, including:

  • Beth's journey toward learning about the enneagram and eventually teaching others
  • Patterns in certain types gravitating to each other
  • Alignment and misalignment with the Gospel

     

  • Understanding your true identity in Christ and finding our security in that truth
  • Using the Enneagram as a tool to identify when you go off course and realign with the truth

 

  • The differences in types preferred in various environments and cultures
  • Letting God in to work on us as we find out about our weaknesses
  • Embracing who we are and finding our value and purpose in Christ, not comparisons
  • Using the enneagram to develop compassion for others and live in the Gospel’s grace
  • How knowing others’ types can help us communicate better
  • A little about the 9 types, wings and tritypes and how they interact with each other
  • MacKenzie and Beth’s reactions to the Sleeping At Last podcast enneagram songs
  • Trusting the work of Christ as our foundation, no matter where we are on our journey
  • Sneak peak into upcoming books and courses from Your Enneagram Coach
  • A typical day in Beth’s life

Current Lovelies-

Beth: being intentional about creating margin, enjoying sitting by the fire outside in the evenings

MacKenzie: reading a fun novel just for fun and finding that really refreshing
