Hi, Friends. It’s Your Enneagram Coach Beth here. For those of us in relationships, we know that healthy communication is critical to a thriving and lasting partnership. Though sometimes that's easier said than done, I created this resource to help move you and your significant other in the right direction.
This free download outlines what healthy communication with each Enneagram Type looks like, giving tips for understanding, listening, and responding to our significant others. When our partners feel seen, heard, and loved, it makes them come alive and helps them transform into the best version of themselves.
As always, my heart is to point you and your spouse back to the truth of the Gospel. When we’re aligned with Christ, we know that our partners struggle here on earth and can communicate in hurtful ways, but we can extend grace, mercy, and forgiveness since our hearts are resting in the freeing work of Christ on our behalf. We communicate...
Hi, Friends. It’s Jeff McCord, aka husband to Beth. You may not know me yet, as I mostly work behind the scenes of Your Enneagram Coach, but helping and watching Beth shine in her coaching calling is one of the greatest joys of my life! This is the first time I’ve appeared on the blog, so here’s a little background on my journey.
My story is one of profound transformation and redemption. Soon after becoming a believer as a high-school junior, the Lord placed a deep burden on my heart to dedicate my life to seeing the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ impact the whole person. I pursued seminary as well as certifications in pastoral counseling, family and church mediation, and Gospel coaching. I’ve been a Pastor of Ministries and Discipleship for several churches and organizations over the last 22 years. Oh, and in the midst of all that, I married my wonderful wife, Beth, and raised a couple of amazing kids, Nate and Libby!
But let me...

Beth and Jeff were featured on the Married People Podcast Episode 71: What Can the Enneagram Tell Me About My Marriage?
Beth and her husband, Jeff, just celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary! They don't have quite as many "firsts" in this season of marriage, so teaming up for their first podcast as a couple is a fun and exciting milestone!
They sat down with Ted Lowe, host of the Married People podcast, to talk about a topic near and dear to their hearts: How a Christ-centered Enneagram can transform marriage relationships. Beth, Jeff, and Ted discussed the many ways this tool can help us better understand, relate and support our significant others. If you’re curious about Beth and Jeff's specific Type 9 and Type 6 relationship dynamics (Or their "dance," as they like to call it), you'll want to tune in to this episode!
Ted also asked Beth and Jeff to explain his marriage dance as a Type 3 married to a Type 1. As...
Beth was featured on the Enneacast Episode 27: Marriage & The Enneagram.
Beth is a big fan of the Enneacast because hosts Jesse Eubanks and Sam Stevenson share her passion for showing people how the way they’re wired impacts their lives. The show explores personality, relationships, and the Gospel through the lens of the Enneagram.
Beth recently sat down with Jesse and Sam to discuss all things marriage, and how we can create healthier communication and better resolve conflict with our spouses. Be sure to listen in to the end of our conversation where we play a random and hilarious game, Red Flags, and answer listener questions about the Enneagram and marriage. Tune in for lots of Enneagram insights and a few laughs.
How God’s Word Specifically Answers the Longings of our Hearts
Hi, Friends. It’s Your Enneagram Coach Beth, here to talk to you about one of my favorite topics, God’s care for you. Our Heavenly Father intricately created you and knows every nuance of your personality. No matter your Type, and the fears, weaknesses, and struggles that come along with it, you’re His cherished child, and He is absolutely crazy about you.
This is why I teach the Enneagram through the lens of the Gospel. Wherever you land on the Enneagram (If you don’t know your Type, go take my free test!), you have a specific message your heart is longing to hear, and only Christ can satisfy it. We can look to other people and things, but lasting freedom and abundant life can only be found when we depend solely on Him!
If you’re a believer in Jesus, all the hope you need can be found in the Bible. You can run to it for peace and assurance, especially in those moments when...
We live in a fallen world, and we’re constantly bombarded and worn down by the sins and troubles that come this side of Heaven.Each Type has different strategies for finding love, worth and validation, and the Enneagram quickly exposes them, and calls us to the work of self-awareness and soul restoration.
If we’re honest, we all have times when we feel spiritually depleted. But before we look to anything or anyone other than Christ to satisfy us, we have to remember what it says in John 4:14: “But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

May these insights refresh your soul and deepen your walk with the Lord, the one who intricately designed...
Beth was featured on the Girls Night Podcast Episode 17: A Map for Self-Discovery and Personal Growth.
Beth recently sat down with Stephanie May Wilson, host of the Girls Night podcast, for an episode all about Beth's favorite topic, a Christ-centered Enneagram.
If you're in need of a little girl time, we think you'll enjoy this chat as much as we did.
Stephanie and Beth walked through the Enneagram and how this personality tool can help women makeover their self image, navigate their relationships, pursue their unique calling, and grow in their walk with the Lord.
You'll love hearing about the transformation Stephanie has experienced since she discovered the Enneagram last year, and how it helped her break free from some areas where she felt stuck. Grab a cup of coffee and tune in.
Beth was featured on the Grace Enough Podcast Episode 16: Enneagram from a Biblical Perspective.
Did you know there are lot of wrong ways to use Enneagram knowledge? Beth has studied this personality tool over the last 17 years, and has loved guiding so many people to that "aha moment" of discovering their Type.
But not everyone uses the insights they gain about their personality for good.
The Enneagram shouldn't be used as a shield to protect ourselves from criticism or doing the hard work of change. It also shouldn't be a weapon, used to attack others and justify negative patterns.
It's meant to be a GPS, a helpful tool that shows us when we get off course, and guides us back to our healthiest path.
Beth had a great discussion on this very topic with Amber Cullum, host of the Grace Enough Podcast, a community designed to encourage believers that God can use us to impact His kingdom no matter our story. They broke down every part of the Enneagram and how...
