How does the Enneagram affect how you communicate with your spouse? Each Enneagram type has a different communication style which impacts the power dynamic in every relationship – whether that’s a relationship with a coworker, a friend, or a spouse. The Enneagram helps us understand where others are coming from and creates space for appreciating and negotiating our differences.
In today’s episode, former co-stars of Little People, Big World, and founders of Beating 50 Percent, Jeremy and Audrey Roloff join Ian on Typology to discuss the ways the Enneagram has shaped how they manage stress, helped them communicate better in their marriage, and transformed their relationship.
Jeremy Roloff grew up on a 110-acre farm in Helvetia, Oregon, alongside his twin brother and two younger siblings. Jeremy helps his parents, who are both dwarfs, run Roloff Farm’s pumpkin patch, which brings in tens of thousands of visitors from around the world every weekend in October. Jeremy has a degree in professional photography, and is the co-founder of Beating50Percent.com, a marriage ministry on a mission to revive covenant marriages. The couple also hosts the top-rated Behind the Scenes podcast. Jeremy grew up filming for a reality television show called Little People, Big World, which has been following his family since he was twelve years old. He is a 9 on the Enneagram, dad to Ember, loves old cars, and will never pass up an evening by the campfire.
Audrey Roloff is passionate about motivating women to always believe in the more that is within them through Christ. She spreads this mission through her devotionals, Always More clothing line, and blogs on life, faith, marriage and motherhood. Audrey is the co-founder of beating50percent.com, a marriage ministry, with her husband Jeremy. The couple also hosts the top-rated Behind the Scenes podcast. Audrey was the captain of the Oregon State Cross Country and Track team where she earned a degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. She’s an 8 on the enneagram, mom to Ember, drinks her coffee beige, loves all things floral and the Pacific Northwest.
