Ep. 89 - Revisiting the Enneagram and a Check-In with New Mom Kristen
Hey everybody! It’s Memorial Day today, and we hope you are joining us by taking today to remember those in the Armed Forces who have lost their lives serving our country. They have made the ultimate sacrifice and we are grateful today and every day for all the men and women who serve our country.
We are back today with another new episode! If you’ve listened to us before, then you know how much we love the enneagram around here! If you’re like “enne-a-what?,” then check out our Ep. 19 - The Enneagram & Mommin’ with Special Guest, Beth McCord for an introduction to the enneagram. Today, we are talking more about it! We just love chatting about it, what we are learning and discovering, and how it has been a helpful tool for us.
A few of the resources we mentioned for learning about the enneagram are Beth McCord’s website (including the test), The Enneagram Institute, The Road Back to You by Ian Morgan Cron & Suzanne Stabile, and The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective by Richard Rohr. We also talked about the Typeology Podcast, hosted by Ian Morgan Cron. Some other specific podcast episodes we talked about are The Enneagram Journey podcast Parenting Discussion, episode 1 and The Enneagram Journey podcast Parenting Discussion, episode 2. And our friends over at the Whole Motherhood podcast did “The Enneagram & Mothering with Suzanne Stabile, Part 1 and Part 2.” Have you watched the Brene Brown: The Call to Courage (Netflix special) yet? We both thought it was great. It’s an awesome discussion on vulnerability and courage, if you haven’t seen it yet.
And then we got to catch up with “New Mom Kristen!” The last time we had her on we talked all about sleep training, and by golly, they are all sleeping! Woohoo! We talked about our Food Transition episode and Ready Nest Counseling.
From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:
Jennifer is totally into the Broadway musical, Miss Saigon, currently touring the country!
As promised…. we have our next book!! Drumrollllllllll…….. It’s Make Something Good Today by Erin & Ben Napier! This is great and sweet read to kick off your summer reading! We’ll be discussing this in about 7 weeks, so you have plenty of time!
And, our next podcast to discuss is Episode 88 of the Chatologie Podcast, entitled ‘Sick of Me’ with Guest Whitney Capps (hosted by Angie Elkins). This is a great listen (and we want to read the book now, too!)! We know you’re going to love it!
That’s it for now! We would LOVE to hear what enneagram number YOU are!! Comment below or on our Instagram post for today! Have a GREAT week, mamas!
