If someone asked you “Do you know your number?”, would you know what they mean? They’re talking about the enneagram, of course! If you like personality tests, you’ll love this episode! Rebecky brought on the first ever Problem Solved guest, Lauren, who is an enneagram coach. She typed Rebecky live on the pod and helped us understand other enneagram numbers in the process. Rebecky can’t decide how she feels about her number, but thinks that it’s probably the worst-case scenario. Emily gets some clarification on EXACTLY what her number is because finding out her perfect number is the right thing to do. Any guesses on what numbers they are?!

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:

  • how the enneagram affected Lauren’s marriage and other relationships

  • tips for identifying your enneagram type

  • Lauren helps identify what enneagram type Rebecky is

  • a brief history of the Enneagram

  • Emily confirms that she is an enneagram 1 and tells us about her inner critic, “Maude”

  • how our need for God is reflected through our enneagram numbers

Do you think if you were diagnosed with cancer that you’d think things like “This is a blessing” or “I was chosen for this mission!“? I know that I would NOT be that insightful. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Ali Christian, a wife, mom and business owner born and raised in upstate New York. She was recently diagnosed with stage four cancer, uprooted her family from NY and moved to CA to get treatment. She and her husband are passionate about sharing the story God is writing for them with full transparency & (attempted) full surrender. She shares with us what it looks like when your life stops and you begin a new life as a full-time cancer fighter. She is the definition of a Mom Struggling Well and I am so pleased that she came to share her joy with all of us.

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:

  • Ali’s cancer diagnosis story

  • living with stage 4 cancer

  • how Ali’s perspective on her diagnosis shifted from one of doom to an opportunity to minister

  • what it looks like to keep Ali’s family running during her treatment

  • being intentional with her husband

  • two things you shouldn’t say to people battling cancer

  • how Ali’s cancer has affected her relationship with her kids

  • the biggest thing God has taught Ali through her battle with cancer

  • stories of how God has very practically shown up for Ali and her family
