Your Enneagram Coach, the Podcast

Aug 3, 2021

As parents, we try to offer our children the best of who we are. But often, we are coaching our children to be like us—to think like us, feel like us, and to be the better version of our type. 


In this episode, Beth and Jeff explain how the Enneagram helped them parent from a non-anxious presence. By attuning their hearts to how God uniquely created their children, they became better observers. They learned to ask questions that gauged their children's hearts and not just their behavior. 


Parenting is never easy, but the Enneagram (seen through the lens of the Gospel) can help you navigate the rough terrain.
