More about Joy Erickson
I am a wife, mom and an accidental runner. My passion in life other than my family is helping people live a full life.
From the time I was in High School I have always felt the call to help others. I began this journey by joining a ministry training program to learn how to work in and for the church. From there, I spent time working in Youth Ministry and then found myself working part time in a church accounting office. All of these seasons of my life I LOVED what I did. I loved helping further the kingdom from the background. I loved coming along someone’s vision and helping make it happen. In that time I also joined a Network Marketing company. I found myself being challenged to grow personally like never before. I became more self confident in my ideas and began to have some dreams of my own. Those dreams were to help people live a full life. It was through that Network Marketing company I was introduced to the Enneagram.
When I discovered the Enneagram in 2018 it was then I realized that my Core Motivation for all this want of helping people was because I wanted to matter. It was through that knowledge that a new time of personal growth began. I was able to step back and truly evaluate they “WHY” behind my decisions. It was with that knowledge that I realized that I do matter and I have a voice and I need to use it to help people. I especially wanted to help people to use the Enneagram to find out the same truths in their lives. So, In 2020 I became a Certified Enneagram Coach to do just that.

“I love how Joy helped me walk through my tornado of feelings, which gave me more clarity in the fog of this world. These sessions helped me to see the reality of what’s really going on and not the reality I have made it up to be. Such a breath of fresh air to finally understand why I think, feel and do the things I do. Huge weight lifted!” – Shannon F.
“I enjoyed getting to work with Joy to dive deeper into understanding myself and my Enneagram number. She was very personable and relatable to work with. Instead of being scared of my Enneagram number and wings, I am now able to walk more confidently in who God made me to be and know that my presence and feelings matter. ” – Elizabeth B.
“I had a great time with Joy Erickson going through the Enneagram material and understanding myself more and WHY I do/think/believe the things I do, especially from a Christian perspective.
I specifically needed help with facing my “brain fog” and my resistance I was feeling being an entrepreneur and a Type 9. I learned a lot more about my Enneagram type than I knew before, and I’ve noticed that I’m more aware of myself than I was before.
I recognize the resistance & fog and I’m able to process and explain those feelings more often than before, so my relationships and communication is getting better as a result.” – Stephen F.
