12 Days of Giving: Enneagram Style

Posted by Etch Life on

12 Days of Giving Enneagram gift guide

We are big fans of the Enneagram around the EtchLife office. If you're not familiar with it, it's an ancient system that defines nine personality types and their tendencies, strengths and weaknesses. 

For whatever reason, the Enneagram seems to hit the nail on the head when it comes to describing our best gifts, our deepest fears and motivations, and our tendencies when we are healthy and when we are stressed. Of course, we take our greatest cues on who we are from Scripture, but it can be a fun way gain understanding of ourselves and each other.

So just for fun, we've chosen gifts for each Enneagram type, and we'll share one here each day of the 12 Days of Giving. And, so we can put gifts in your hands to help you give God away, these gifts will be 20% off during the sale!
