Can we let you in on a secret?
Every January we work our tails off to bring you a fresh new line of artwork for the new year. As each new year approaches, our team gets together to pray over the ways we perceive God directing us. As a business, one of our commitments is to keep our eyes and our hands open to whatever He brings our way. We often lay down repetitive structures—even if they have worked well for us in the past—in order to make room for new + exciting paths He is calling us to walk down.
Typically around this time of the year, we release a "Verse of the Year" line, where we ask God to give us a few simple verses to pray over you, our beloved community. This year, we took our approach in a fresh direction. Next Tuesday, All Good Things Collective will launch a brand new line of art born from that desire to forge new ways.
If you follow us closely online, you may have heard us gush about one of our favorite topics: the Enneagram.
If you’re unfamiliar, the Enneagram is a personality typing system that describes how human beings are wired from birth both positively and negatively. It provides a practical + comprehensive way to access a deeper knowledge of yourself, greater compassion for others, and a resounding love for our Creator.
The Enneagram helps you not only understand yourself, but it allows you to see the world through someone else’s eyes, often times leading to a greater understanding of how and why people think, act, and feel the way they do.
The Road Back to You, puts it this way: “By challenging us to bravely explore who we really are, the Enneagram helps us recognize and overcome self-defeating patterns of behavior and to become our most authentic selves.”
Our staff has found so much freedom by exploring the Enneagram together. Unpacking the layers of our motivations has helped us love God + love others in a whole new way.
As we were praying over you, we sensed God leading us to respond to this system in the best way we know how — with His Word.
Next Tuesday, we are proud to introduce you to eighteen brand new prints curated specifically in response to the Enneagram. We looked at the strengths + the struggles of each number and met them with scripture. Throughout the line, you will find two fresh designs created for all nine Enneagram types. We are absolutely smitten with each and every piece of this line and cannot wait to get them into your hands!
Stay tuned in the next few days as we share a few sneak peeks of the line, as well as some of our favorite Enneagram resources. If you happen to be new to the Enneagram and are interested in learning more, we recommend taking this test first and exploring the Enneagram Institute website.
