Flourish as your Truest Self by combining the Enneagram tool with your Spiritual Journey

Announcing the new edition of

Self to Lose, Self to Find: Using the Enneagram to Uncover Your True, God-Gifted Self

I love my work with people, especially when the "lights turn on" and someone experiences deeper intimacy with God and more freedom to live out of their true identity.

I'm humbly grateful for how the Spirit has used my Enneagram book, Self to Lose, Self to Find to free people from false inner beliefs about who they "should" be into the freedom of their unique design as a reflection of God's image. I'm very excited about the new, updated edition published by Random House/Convergent.

Meeting with others for spiritual direction, presenting Enneagram workshops, and coaching ministry teams on the Enneagram brings me such deep's like having a front row seat on the liberating work of God as "holy aha moments" unfold.

I'd love to connect with you! Contact me here, and also check out my free resource on the Enneagram and Relationships below. Let's be in touch!

Self to Lose Self to Find Book


"Marilyn has given us a great gift in offering an accessible, Biblically grounded work that introduces concerned and hopeful Christians to the gift of the Enneagram...I am grateful to have this elegant and carefully-crafted work to offer as we all press in to deeper levels of transformation—for the glory of God, for the freedom and abundance of our own lives and for the sake of others who have to live with us!"                        From the Foreword by Ruth Haley Barton

"Marilyn's book is hands-down my favorite book on the Enneagram. Why? Because it is Jesus-centered to the core. While many seek to focus on the individual, Marilyn invites you to understand the self Jesus is inviting you to leave behind so you can follow Him. The best way to describe this book is beautiful!"

Daniel Fusco, Pastor at Crossroads Church and Author of "Inward, Outward, and Upward"

A Reflection Workbook to Guide Your Journey for Self to Lose, Self to Find

This Reflection Workbook will deepen your understanding of the content in the first edition of Self to Lose – Self to Find: A Biblical Approach to the 9 Enneagram Types. This Workbook is designed to facilitate movement from merely gaining information toward experiencing “holy aha moments” that lead to personal transformation and spiritual renewal. It can be used for individual reflection or in a group study.

“Our Bible study group used the Reflection Workbook to more easily maneuver through Marilyn’s book. It helped us focus on the key points and then the book came alive. We all had our own copy and went through the questions alone before coming to the group. Our discussions were very rich and thought-provoking.”
