Deedra and Megan explore the subject of creativity: what does it mean to be creative? Is being creative the same as being artsy? How can we tap into our own God-given creativity, and does creativity have anything to do with our enneagram numbers? Join us for this conversation, and leave us your feedback in a voicemail by calling (314)384-9109.
The quote Megan mentioned was from Reached by Ally Condie, and it says, "It strikes me that this is how writing anything is, really. A collaboration between you who give the words and they who take them and find meaning in them, or put music behind them, or turn them aside because they were not was needed."
Are we talking about self-care tips or simply growing as a person? Both! Megan and Deedra talk through practical steps for each enneagram type to find more levels of freedom from stress and anxiety.
Read all the practical growth tips for each number on Megan's Instagram account.
We may not all experience clinical anxiety, but we definitely all have anxious thoughts or feelings once in awhile. Deedra and Megan discuss what causes anxiety for each enneagram type, and they want your input!
Megan and Deedra follow up their conversation about conflict by getting real about how they took their own advice and had the hard conversation about their own conflict! They also go through the comments on Megan's Instagram about how numbers related to their own conflict style.
It's everyone's favorite topic: conflict! It seems that conflict is everywhere right now, but have you ever examined how YOU engage in conflict? Deedra and Megan talk through some of the conflict styles of each enneagram number, and then they share their own ways of engaging (or not engaging!) in conflict.
Megan and Deedra talk with Pastor Jennifer Lien about enduring hard seasons and how to lean into what God is teaching us in every chapter of our lives. Jennnifer is an enneagram Nine and shares how she came to realize how that plays out for her in everyday life.

Megan and Deedra attempt something new: they do an on-air typing session with a stranger! Hilary Mize is a born and bred Southern California girl. After graduating from CSU Fullerton with a BFA in Theatre and Psychology minor, she moved to “The Valley” to pursue her television and film acting career. She worked 8 years at L.A.‘s premiere networking company, ACT NOW!, as a consultant. There she met her now best friends affectionately called “The God Squad,” who mentored and led her to a personal relationship with Christ. A handful of years later she moved to Georgia, where she coupled her acting and coaching experience with her faith, and began work in Atlanta with Actors, Models and Talent for Christ. She currently resides in Buford, Ga with her husband and wonderful three kids, and continues to work with actors at The Actors Scene.
