We had a lot of fun with this episode — and we learned a few things about each other in the process of recording it! What’s today’s podcast episode topic? The Enneagram and marriage.
Whether you love all things Enneagram, are skeptical of it, or don’t even know what it is, I think you’ll enjoy this candid conversation about our differences, how we have worked through them, and what it looks like to love and respect someone who is the complete opposite of you in many ways.
Pull up a chair (or a load of laundry!) and listen in as we chat about our big foster care news, grilling meat, my favorite makeup cleaner (and I make a confession that I might get some flack for), a book I’m reading, and marriage and the Enneagram!

Jesse’s ability to think about NOTHING is such a man thing. 😉 I’m married to an Enneagram 1 and have 4 boys ages 14 and older, all with various E-#’s, so there’s lots of men around here. They ALL have that ability and just can’t imagine how it must be to always have something I’m thinking about!😊
