ENNEAGRAM TYPES:
Type 1: The Principled Reformer
Type 2: The Nurturing Supporter
Type 3: The Admirable Achiever
Type 4: The Introspective Individualist
Type 5: The Analytical Investigator
Type 6: The Faithful Guardian
Type 7: The Enthusiastic Optimist
Type 8: The Passionate Protector
Type 9:  The Peaceful Accommodator
 
FAVORITE TAKE-AWAYS:
The enneagram is a tool to help us understand the different ways we see, interpret and react to life’s circumstances. 
We all have our strengths and our weaknesses, and the Enneagram can be a tool to help us recognize them and those in others. 
We are more than just one of the “types”
How can I better know myself so I can set up my kids well but also see them for who they are and bless them instead of making them what I think they should be?
 
AWARE: 
A - Awaken to what we are thinking, feeling and our body’s sensations
W - Welcome, acknowledge what is going on
A - Ask healthy questions
R - Receive what is true and tend to your needs so you can regulate
E - Engage in relationships in a new way with new perspective 
 
REMEMBER:
The other gift you can give your kids is apologizing. 
Learn how to communicate well what makes you uncomfortable and what you need.
We have to understand our limitations. There is grace in growth.
We know that we are safe and secure in Christ, we know that we are His beloved and each enneagram type is longing for a particular message to be said and experienced in their heart and Christ has actually already accomplished that for us.
Never use the enneagram as a weapon against others.
SCRIPTURE: 
Romans 5:8 - Christ came while we were still sinners
