Becoming Us is a self-paced, online curriculum tailored for your Enneagram Type combination. It’s designed to help you and your fiancé align your relationship with the hope and truth of the Gospel, so you can prepare for the marriage you’ve always dreamed of.
We created a personalized curriculum for all 45 Type combinations. That’s because the dynamics between a Type 1 and Type 3 can look very different than those of a Type 6 and Type 8, or a Type 2 and Type 4.
Each Type has specific Core Motivations driving the way they will relate to their spouse, so there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to building a solid relationship. (Marriage is an amazing gift from God, but it requires much more intentionality and work than dating!)
You’ll discover how your unique personality Types and Core Motivations drive each of your thoughts, feelings, and actions.
Uncover each of your communication styles and tendencies when you’re doing well and when you’re struggling. You’ll learn to improve the way you communicate with your partner, so you each feel heard and understood.
Learn how to plan to exercise more balance, self-control, and grace in your daily interactions, so you’ll be prepared for challenging seasons in your lives and marriage. Turn potentially hot-button issues or common misunderstandings into productive conversations that strengthen your marriage.
When marriage issues arise, from the tiniest aggravations to more serious disagreements, you can be prepared! Understanding what makes you and your significant other tick will be a game-changer when it comes to approaching misunderstandings and arguments.
Strengthen your relationship as you lay a foundation of mutual respect and connection. Your marriage will be stronger as you learn to affirm, support, and point one another back to Christ!
We created a marriage course with all the Enneagram and Gospel insights we wish we had in our early years. Here’s our story.
We got married at the ripe age of 20. Full of optimism and dreams for the future, we were totally sure we’d easily have a happy and fulfilling marriage. We quickly realized that while our dating life had been rich and fun, having a healthy and thriving marriage was going to take much more work!
There’s always the potential for friction when you put two personalities with different perspectives, backgrounds, and expectations together, and we soon realized our honeymoon period hadn’t lasted as long as we’d hoped. We didn’t understand ourselves, one another, or the fullness we had in Christ, so we spent the next few years unintentionally creating unhealthy patterns. By our fourth year of marriage, we were frustrated and desperate for help!
The Gospel and the Enneagram changed everything.
We learned to recognize the ways we would each think, speak, and act when we were out of alignment with the Gospel. We discovered that much of the time, the root of our marriage issues stemmed from not truly understanding one another’s hearts, and insisting that our point of view be seen as right. We believe that if we’d had the tool of the Enneagram from a Gospel perspective earlier, it would have helped us to avoid so much pain and misunderstanding.
Imagine how your relationship would change if you really trusted the amazing news of the Gospel, believing that Christ is restoring you and your significant other. God has an amazing plan for your relationship, and He put you with your spouse - along with all your thought patterns and quirks - to accomplish His purposes. Challenges are inevitable, but when you learn to navigate them in a healthy way, you’ll experience transformational grace and abundant life.
No matter your season or personality combination, our heart is to show you how to grow into the individuals and couple you were created to be. And we do that while intentionally focusing on the intricacies of your Type combo.
You’ll receive the encouragement and coaching you’d receive in months of premarital counseling in just 8 digestible online sessions. You can complete them at your own pace when it’s convenient for you!
