Hey hey! Today’s episode is a must-listen! Whether you are all-in on the Enneagram or a skeptic, there is so much to consider and learn as Jeff and Beth McCord join me on the show.
Listen in as Beth provides us with a framework – sharing how the Enneagram is focused on why you think, feel, and behave in particular ways. Friends, this is so valuable to recognize in our own lives and the lives of those around us. A game changer for sure!
We also dive deeper into their soon-to-release book, More Than Your Number, by talking about the importance of moving past often quickly assigned and sometimes stereotypical Enneagram Types. Instead, we can consider how our personality makes us so much more complex than just a number.
Pastor Jeff McCord and Beth McCord co-founded Your Enneagram Coach nearly 20 years ago. As an Enneagram coach, teacher, and speaker, Beth is now leading the industry in simplifying the profound truths of the Enneagram from a Biblical perspective. The McCord’s passion is to make the Enneagram accessible for everyone, anywhere, so they can experience the transformation and freedom in Christ they long for. Beth and Jeff live outside Nashville, have been married for 23 years, and have two adult children.

Anything that is not scriptural or Biblical from God’s truth we are just going to throw out but let’s take what is still good and true and brings clarity about our heart; not for self help and to work on ourselves or self focus but it’s more about how we can align our heart with God.
Your main type is your driving force. Your main type actually has two parts within it. It has a wounded child and a beloved child. The wounded child is the younger part of your heart that was wounded or traumatized as a child in some form or fashion and it was trying its best to survive. But what’s beautiful is that because of the redemption of Christ, when we trust in Him and receive Him as Lord and Savior, not only are we forgiven but his righteousness is poured out on us and God looks at us as if we are Christ.
We want to help people understand that there’s an infinite number of variations for type and it should promote curiosity not stereotyping.
God created us diverse but to unify and glorify Him.
The reason the enneagram is so helpful is because it gives us vocabulary to behave, think and feel the way we do.
