Ignorance is bliss - except in self-awareness. What you don't know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships - and maybe even how you make your way in the world. It can also keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you're stuck in the same ruts?

The Enneagram is an ancient personality type system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. In The Road Back to You, Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile forge a unique approach - a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of God and of ourselves.

Funny and filled with stories, this book allows you to understand more about each of the Enneagram types, keeping you from pausing long after you have heard the chapter about yourself. Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help you get on the road that will take you further along into who you really are - leading you into places of spiritual discovery you would never have found on your own, and paving the way to the wiser, more compassionate person you want to become.

"This is a great introduction to the enneagram, an ancient personality tool that you need to know about. Its different from other tools like the Myers-Briggs and this difference is what make it so helpful and so uncomfortable to study. The enneagram doesn't flatter. It provides more than a description of your strengths. You'll also get insight into the unhealthy side of your personality. You'll gain an understanding of how you operate at your best and your worst, which is why I have a love/hate relationship with the enneagram. Expect to be encouraged as you read. Expect to squirm at times as you read descriptions of the darker aspects of your personality that are so spot on, you'll wonder if someone's crawled inside your head and downloaded a few things.

There's a lot of more technical books written on the enneagram but this is probably the most accessible and engaging book on the topic. The writing is excellent and the content is organized in a way that makes the tool easy to understand. The authors write from a Christian perspective but its not heavy handed. I can't imagine someone coming from a different faith or no faith at all feeling "run over" by their perspective.

The things we refuse to face in ourselves often have great power over us. Read this book and allow these gracious authors to gently invite you to a greater level of self-awareness that can lead to greater freedom and greater compassion both for yourself and others."

The Road Back to You An Enneagram Journey to SelfDiscovery Audible Audio Edition Ian Morgan Cron Suzanne Stabile christianaudiocom Books Reviews


  • I really like this book and think the insights are helpful. That said, I'm giving it 3 stars for the deceptive branding and marketing technique. By that I mean that the only thing "Christian" about this book is that the author claims to be one. The Reformation (and evangelicals in general) have long held that the Bible is the sole and final authority on matters of faith and practice, so the "Enneagram" is no more Christian than, say, my 2010 Toyota Yaris. So with that in mind, I will say that I don't believe the Enneagram (much like my Toyota) is necessarily at odds with the Christian faith. It's a common grace. I found the insights to be quite profound and helpful in growing in self-discovery and self-awareness. I'd highly recommend people (Christian or not) familiarize themselves with some of the methods contained within this work. I simply want to be cautious about putting this on the same shelf as the God-inspired words of Scripture. The insights into human nature are remarkable, but there is nothing infallible about them. I've taken many personality tests and this is perhaps my favorite of all. I wouldn't fault the authors at all if they added a little nuance instead of trying to exploit the monolith that is modern Christian publishing. Read this book and examine yourself, but as a Scottish pastor once said, "for every look at yourself, take ten looks at Christ" (Robert Murray McCheyne). His character and work are much more important than our own inward examination of ourselves.
  • Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile's book "The Road Back to You" is a highly accessible and clear explanation of the Enneagram, a personality diagnostic tool that claims all human beings fall in to one of nine basic types the challenger, peacemaker, perfectionist, helper, performer, romantic, investigator, loyalist, and enthusiast. Based on keen observation and centuries of study, the Enneagram conveys a way of understanding the self, both our strengths and weakness, our greatest gifts and deepest fears. Cron is an Episcopal priest and I would label him a Christian contemplative (I hope that is cool with him!), while Stabile is an excellent and highly-sought speaker on all things Enneagram. She is also the co-founder, along with her husband, Reverend Joe Stabile, of Life in the Trinity Ministry.

    Cron and Stabile are winsome and persuasive in their presentation of the Enneagram. The framework and much of the content are taken from Stabile's years of experience in teaching the Enneagram, and much of what I encountered in this book I had already heard in her "Know Your Number" workshop. In each chapter, Stabile and Cron outline basic characteristics of each type, allowing the reader to discern their own number based on self-knowledge and experience. Then, they explain how this number may experience their world and how their unique personality can lead them to discover a deep sense of God-given meaning as part of the human family. They give examples of what each type looks like when healthy, middling, or unhealthy, and name for each type common or besetting sins (a shadow side) as well as "missed messages" not received in the early years of life that may explain certain behaviors or longings. Each type has range and nuance; Cron and Stabile show how each number has "wings," or correspondences with neighboring number types, as well as how each type can function like another in strength, or retreat to a different type when unhealthy or hurting. With the Enneagram, there can be a lot of movement, which is fitting, because human personality is complex.

    I am a certified spiritual director and someone who has contemplated the self, both in my own process of self discovery and also in my work observing others as a pastor. The Enneagram can be a useful tool, and does reflect dynamics that I have seen in my own spiritual journey. But I have always retained a reservation with regards to the Enneagram, for I know the degree to which we as human beings long for scripts to live by. While some individuals may fit the grid of the Enneagram, I know others who, correctly or not, may self-identify and then study and conform to the personality patterns they most desire. I suspect that personality is not discovered (as this account of the Enneagram claims), but in some cases is made. The individual may not be "already in the box" and in the process of discovering its dimensions. Rather, the individual may construct the box, tailoring it according to their unique longings and desires. A proponent of the Enneagram may claim that this will lead to a manifestation of a false self. My response is simple "How do you know? And, if people self-identify, who are you to say?"

    My secondary critique of this book pertains to its substance as a work of evangelical reflection or theology, and while certain claims are made by Cron and Stabile concerning both God and human nature, very little appeal is made to the contents of Scripture. Direct references are scant. This particular account of the Enneagram has very little to say about our creation in the divine image, or the implications of sin, and how those two dynamics inform our present human condition or situation. Nods are given, but exegesis is absent. Further, little attention is given to how God in Christ has redeemed us, and how a theory of human personality might help us move toward God's desired end for us, with God's help. Cron and Stabile may be suggesting that the Enneagram is a God-given tool, and thus a guide or "road" for us to rediscover our true selves, but no biblical grounds are given for this claim. Further, no account is given, once self-understanding is obtained, for how that knowledge serves us as we are being remade in the image of Christ. You might say, "Ben, this is a trade book! This wasn't their task!" Nevertheless, as an IVP resource, I expect more engagement with Scripture, and a greater degree of biblical justification for claims found within.

    There has been a great deal of enthusiasm concerning the Enneagram, particularly among a certain strain of evangelical Christians. While I do see ways this tool can be helpful, I maintain my reservations. I believe human beings are irreducibly complex. I have found that the Enneagram does make sense of certain things about me, but I do not take the Enneagram as an exhaustive account of how I can unlock my true self. The Enneagram may be interesting, novel, and compelling at this historical moment. But I believe this is because we live in a world of confused and disparate identities, with individuals searching for something to grasp for, to hold on to, to put one's faith in. The Enneagram, for some, is a salvation. It is the missing key.

    While tools like the Enneagram can help us along the way, I believe they can only take us so far. Cron and Stabile have given us a beginning. Even to the degree the Enneagram can help with self-discovery, our selves are not our true end. It is in Christ that we discover our true selves, not through a better understanding of the Enneagram, but through communion with him.

    This book is entertaining, clearly written, and more engaging than any other resource on the Enneagram that I have encountered. The study guide is a helpful addition, written for both for individuals and for groups. But I would encourage any reader to maintain a level of healthy skepticism, and to remember that the Enneagram does not have comprehensive and exhaustive explanatory power. It is also not the key to the spiritual life.

    The Enneagram can help in the spiritual life. But of greater help is knowledge of God. Seek God first, study the Enneagram with discernment, open the Scriptures always, and trust the Lord to lead you.
  • This is a great introduction to the enneagram, an ancient personality tool that you need to know about. Its different from other tools like the Myers-Briggs and this difference is what make it so helpful and so uncomfortable to study. The enneagram doesn't flatter.

Fancy Nancy Tea Parties Jane O'Connor Robin Preiss Glasser 9780061801747 Books Reviews


  • Has a good amount of kid friendly ideas and recipes for having all kinds of Tea Parties. It's not a traditional story so much as a Tea Party How To; which is exactly what I hoped for. There are recipe cards at the back of the book as well.

    My daughter flips through and picks out what she wants to make for our next tea party.
  • Love Fancy Nancy, love this book. Lots of ideas on how to throw a tea party for your friends. I am giving these as party favors to my daughter's tea party birthday. Forget the silly dollar store stuff, I do one nice book or activity book these days.
  • A beautiful book to add to your children’s collection. My 6 year-old loves all of the Fancy Nancy books; and I love the physical quality that makes it a keepsake collectible. I purchased this one for her birthday, which was a tea party! It gave us a lot of ideas for having additional memorable tea parties for years to come. She was inspired the very first time we opened the book the day it arrived at our doorstep.
  • Wonderful book with beautiful illustrations. So much fun to read ! We have read it so many times and will probably keep reading it . Our tea parties are better than ever thanks to this delightful book. If your little one likes tea parties , she'll love this book!! Who ever thought tea parties could be so much fun. So happy I made this purchase !!! Our tea parties now are over the top and super fun .A must have for every little girl .
  • We got a small Fancy Nancy puzzle for two of our granddaughters years ago, great for learning how to solve puzzles, and several of the books. This year, another granddaughter got a Fancy Nancy tea party book with a tea party set. She's over the moon and asked to watch the tea party movie on Disney for kids soon after. High quality books, artwork, and writing.
  • My daughter loves this book and the rest of the series. We got it for her for her birthday after I noticed she always checked it out at the library every time we went. It is definitely different from many other books she has and now she is starting to enter what I like to call the next chapter in her book of life.
  • I like to give this book along with a tea set to little girls' 3-5ages birthday present! It's always a huge hit!
  • My 6 year old absolutely lives Nancy and this book totally charmed her and her friends! Now the girls want to model Nancy and her "fancy schmansy" tea parties every weekend. Bake some tea cookies together and make some "tea" with your girls (and boys). What a great way to enjoy a lazy afternoon. p.s. Our "tea" was really various juices each time we celebrated! Enjoy!,

River Clan Shifters Paranormal Bear Shifter Romance Series edition by Celeste Raye Paranormal Romance eBooks Reviews


  • A great read with some unusual twist and turns in the relationships amongst shifters, vampires and witches. Would recommend to any who like the genre
  • I enjoyed every single book in this series! I think everyone will enjoy reading these books as well! I will definitely recommend this series to others!
  • I really enjoyed reading this series. A great example of love conquers all, and a great lesson for the rest of us.
  • I received a complimentary review copy of the book and I am voluntarily leaving a honest review.
    The Sacrifice 2 In the first book you had a shifter mate with a vampire and their child is the first of his kind. Now you have a shifter and a witch. Well, there is a lot more power there. This is going to be something else all together. Excitement and danger all around. Very good story and the saga continues.
    Revenge 3 Family, some times you wish that you did not have to think of them. Listen to them or take the lectures from them. Colin and Alice had that to. Alice's mother and aunts did something that is coming back to haunt them and Alice might have to pay for what they did. Colin is there to protect Alice and make sure she is safe. I hope that he can pull it off. Very good story.
    Endless Possibilities 4 Travis and Denise, Travis is Alpha of a part of the River Clan under his brother Cal. Denise is a Vampire that is over a thousand years old, very powerful. Something is going on. Why is Denise in Travis' dreams? Very good story, I liked it.
  • I will start by saying I am a huge fan of Celeste. I adore her writing style, normally the characters and stories flow with little effort. However with this series it seemed the relationships were forced which in turn didn’t make things flow as well as it could have. I understand the concept of alpha males but there’s alpha and there’s just being an a$$. This may sound like I didn’t like it and that’s not so, I would recommend this I just prefer some of her other series over this one. I voluntarily reviewed this book for an honest review.
  • River Clan Shifters Paranormal Bear Shifter Romance Series Edition
    by Celeste Raye
    I love Celeste’s writing style. This set is absolutely a must read. As Always Celeste’s Writes A Great Story This set is all about Frederick, Colin and Travis. There is a war between Shifters and Vampires. There’s alot of chemistry and passion in this Set. Will this guys find love or will the War destroy them. I would recommend this box set to all my friends. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book."
  • Thank you for the ARC read, I voluntarily give this book an honest review. The river clan are back better then ever. The vampires covens has attraction the attention of the local witches will they aid the shifters or turn their backs on the fighting between the clans until the war is on their own door step? This book set was amazing story of powerful alphas at work to reclaim what is theirs. The villains that come from within and without is cause for a thrill ride of ups and downs.
  • First off I want to say that I am a fan of Celeste’s writing style; her Shifters and Vampires are endearing. Storyline unfolds beautifully and keeps the reader interested. Cover Art is tasteful and well done. This is well worth the $.99 price tag. "I voluntarily reviewed this book for an honest review"

Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan's betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.

Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict's bloody politics.

And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity...

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black, comes the highly anticipated and jaw-dropping finale to The Folk of the Air trilogy.

"One of my first thoughts as I started to read, was others I know that need this book - then , as if reading my mind, he said it was for me, not others. So I read it for me and am now waiting for the paperback to go over more slowly and do the worksheets supplied. (I was telling my wife how great the ideas are, so she started reading it. She then told me how I needed the book, lol).

It gives help for deep thought, along with self depreciating humor. I was reading about 1:30 AM the other night, when I got to the rubber band challenge to control negative thoughts. I laughed, and could not quit laughing. Afraid I would wake my wife, I shut the book and crawled into bed beside her - started to think about it and laughter caught me again.

I'm not an addict - my life is messed up and needs help in other ways. This inspired compass can help us all. I look forward to thinking about and adapting much from the inspired ideas.

  • As David so powerfully shares in this eye-opening, heart-touching book, 'Change is an inside job. We must start with ourselves.'

    "What makes this book so engaging is that Dr. Patterson speaks from experience. Painful experience. Been there. Done that. Survived. Here's how.

    "When the pain from his own life choices became greater than his fear of the proven solutions, he began his successful journey to recovery.

    "The honesty, humility, and hope found throughout this book can help anyone struggling with addiction or any weakness, to begin the battle again and win."
  • I have read other literature concerning overcoming addictions, and Dr. David Patterson’s book stands out. Why? It is not overly technical, and the text is engaging and easily understandable to a lay audience - the very people this book was meant to reach! Dr. Patterson discusses his own personal journey battling and overcoming addictions, and his story of perseverance and overcoming is inspirational. Here are a few gems of wisdom gained by experience that David shares with the reader

    - "Come to terms with the past in an effort to improve the future."

    - "Life is determined by choices. Whether you think life is meaningless or meaningful; you are right. You are the author. You choose how you are going to Live One Life."

    - "The good news was that for the first time in my life I was consciously taking full responsibility for me. The bad news was that for the first time in my life I had to take full responsibility for me, and I was in way over my head."

    - "I have learned that you can ride a little hope for a long time if you nurture it…."

    I highly recommend this book - to those not only experiencing addiction, but the people in their support circle, counselors, advisors, and anyone else who wants to gain greater insight about this important subject that touches so many individuals and families.
  • With nuggets of knowledge strewn throughout, even if you only take away parts of it to incorporate into your life and relationships, you will find a less stress in your daily activities.

    I didn't realize that I WAS putting on a different persona for different situations. After it was pointed out in the book I started to notice myself doing it and readjust accordingly.

    "You are the most adaptable, complex creature in the universe. You have unlimited potential with endless opportunities."

    It's pointed and no nonsense information like this that gives hope when things might not be going as you have planned and with the Compass model, you can find what you need to do to get back on track.

    With it's personal background story of trials and tribulations, the author intertwines his personal path to become a better person with a consise framework that's been honed to provide a guided path to follow.

    Even if you're not struggling, or don't know you're struggling, with something addictive, this book can help point it out and show you a system to help you overcome.

    Personally, I think the book version is great as it incorporates a workbook style usage where you can write in it. Because once you write it down, you have something to keep looking at to see how your progress is coming along.
  • One of my first thoughts as I started to read, was others I know that need this book - then , as if reading my mind, he said it was for me, not others. So I read it for me and am now waiting for the paperback to go over more slowly and do the worksheets supplied. (I was telling my wife how great the ideas are, so she started reading it. She then told me how I needed the book, lol).

    It gives help for deep thought, along with self depreciating humor. I was reading about 130 AM the other night, when I got to the rubber band challenge to control negative thoughts. I laughed, and could not quit laughing. Afraid I would wake my wife, I shut the book and crawled into bed beside her - started to think about it and laughter caught me again.

    I'm not an addict - my life is messed up and needs help in other ways. This inspired compass can help us all. I look forward to thinking about and adapting much from the inspired ideas.

  • I’ve read several self help books and the difference with David’s was the impact. It is written in such an inviting and simple way that you feel you are sitting there talking to him. But the emotions and feelings it brought out were inspirational. We all have addictions to varying degrees and this brought to light for me that we could all use this guidance in our Iives. I am sending this book to family and friends that can use it’s honest inspired guidance to improve their lives and truly “live one life”. Thank you David for sharing this with us.
  • I have read many a self-help/self-empowerment/personal growth book, and what sets this book apart for me is the conversational tone and how practical and applicable the content is. I haven't finished reading it yet, but I'm genuinely engaged and eager to do so (which is not always the case once I get past the first chapter of some books in the genre). As a life coach myself, and having worked as a mental health social worker in the addiction and crisis fields, I can say this book is very timely and honest in its approach to some very hard topics. At the same time, you don't have to be (consciously) involved in either of these fields to get the value of the read. It's worth the time, even if you think you don't need these lessons. Probably ESPECIALLY if you think you don't need them. )

One of the most successful songwriters and composers of the last 25 years, Steve Dorff has penned over 20 "Top 10" hits for pop and country artists around the world, including Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Blake Shelton, Smokey Robinson, Kenny Rogers, Ray Charles, Anne Murray, Whitney Houston, George Strait, Dolly Parton, Judy Collins, Cher, Dusty Springfield, Ringo Starr, and Garth Brooks. He has scored for television shows, including Growing Pains, Major Dad, Murder She Wrote, Reba, and several films, including Any Which Way but Loose for which he penned the titular song, and more recently, he has embarked on Broadway (forthcoming musical Josephine). 

Chronicling his four decades behind the music, Steve Dorff gives anecdotes, advice, and insights into his journey. The book follows Steve from his childhood in Queens to Manhattan to Nashville and to his eventual arrival in Los Angeles, California. 

Oftentimes, songs are attributed to the singers who perform them, but it is the songwriter who really knows the story behind the story, from conception to execution. Full of heartfelt stories, hard-earned wisdom, and delightful wit, I Wrote That One, Too... is a great book for musicians, music fans, and whoever has chased their dreams and survived the surprising, but often serendipitous, turns in the road.

"I was blown away by this beautifully written memoir. Each story was more interesting than the next. My favorite stories included Dusty Springfield, Ringo Starr and the fascinating story behind the theme song of Growing Pains. Dorff's literary style is engaging, funny and accessible. I loved the short chapters and found myself racing through this fast paced book. This is a story about grit and chutzpah and not giving up on one's dream. Dorff's laconic and wry observational storytelling is accessible and left me wanting to know more."

  • There is a conversational style to the writing of this book that makes it feel like the author is talking directly to you. The journey that Steve has taken laid bare here, and it’s fascinating. The stories behind the songs are engaging and entertaining. From being visited by the FBI because his name was found written on a list by a famous serial killer, to the time he was asked to vamp on a recording for a young Motown group that may have been their biggest hit, you’ll have a hard time putting this book down. Chances are, you know lots of Steve Dorff songs. This book lets us know about Steve himself. It’s a great read.
  • Great stories about great songs and a life in music. Some funny, some amazing, some just great behind the scenes stuff.
  • A fascinating behind-the scenes look at the world of song writing. I loved the personal stories. It was amazing to read all that goes into getting a song made. Freedman and Dorff pair well as a writing team!
  • A fantastic book. Highly recommend reading about this brilliant artist
  • Amazing
  • Steve is such a talented songwriter and I was happy to know that he finally wrote a book about his songs and his world.
  • I was blown away by this beautifully written memoir. Each story was more interesting than the next.

  • I don’t usually love biographies and this was the exception as it felt more like an engaging conversation with a down to earth guy who had a story to tell. And it’s a fairly incredible story. After reading this book, you definitely want to meet/know the “man behind the curtain.” I loved every anecdote from Kenny Rogers mismanaged lyrics to Dusty Springfield’s behavior in the studio to the real story behind Blake Shelton being asked to be Barbra Streisand’s duet partner. The book is graceful, funny and smart. I could not put it down. The writing is highly accessible and paced perfectly and it really allows the reader into the complicated, witty and fascinating mind of Steve Dorff.
