Relationships + Marriage: The Enneagram

Did you read the cartoon above? I LOVE it. It's SO true. Especially when in a large group, right? Everyone is visiting, but we often have a thought trailing in the back of our minds. I am giddy and excited about the Enneagram, which is an in-depth study on personalities. For now, I'm sticking with a simplified book (below) which I just ordered a copy of. 

As I visit with other wives I usually bring this book up, as there are several great things I learned about my hubby that has helped our marriage a ton. I've heard it said so often, "try to think of where they are coming from..." but if I don't know the voice in my husband's head, how can I possibly know how to think like him. Personalities are different.  Relationships take work. And when one needs advice it's often humbling or expensive to seek professional counseling. I'm way excited for my copy to come in the mail and I'll try to share tidbits in hopes to get you interested in the topic!

The Enneagram Made Easy, Co-Authored by Elizabeth Wagele and Renee Baron 
Eventually I'll look into the more-in-depth and Christian perspective from Richard Rohr.

Talk soon,



  1. Kristyn, I LOVE the enneagram and was just talking about it with a friend last night. I'm sure I could good go on for a while if you ever want to discuss it. I'm an 8, by the way :)

  2. Kristyn, our corpus did The Wisdom of the Enneagram study a year ago. It was wonderful and we all learned so much!
