"I am a number One on the Enneagram."

Juanita Rasmus continues: "If you are a One, you know the weight of the world we carry. If you know a One, these readings will give you enhanced insight into our world. Either way, bring your work boots—you will need them!"

Guided by her own life, including experiences with exhaustion and depression, Juanita Rasmus draws from the deep wells of counseling and spirituality to illuminate the journey of a One. She shares the resources that have guided her to greater spiritual and emotional health. Each of these forty daily reading concludes with a journaling prompt, self-affirmation, or spiritual practice.

Any of us can find aspects of ourselves in any of the numbers. The Enneagram is a profound tool for empathy, so whether or not you are a One, you will grow from your reading about Ones and enhance your relationships across the Enneagram spectrum.

"What a wonderful idea to offer meditations aimed at our Enneagram types! Signature salve for signature sins. Juanita Rasmus is a friend and fellow One. I knew I felt we had much in common, and now I know why. Our DNA has burdened us both with reforming the world, which I've discovered comes with many more downs than ups. It was a pleasure to read Juanita's journey from control and frustration to acceptance, serenity, and playfulness."

Gary W. Moon, founding executive director of the Martin Institute and Dallas Willard Center, Westmont College, and author of Becoming Dallas Willard

"As a fellow Enneagram One, I found myself on almost every page of Juanita Campbell Rasmus's exploration of the problems and possibilities inherent in who we are. This little book offered me encouragement and comfort. Juanita's reflections issue an invitation to all Enneagram Ones to live with greater joy and freedom."

Amy Julia Becker, author of White Picket Fences and A Good and Perfect Gift

"I met Juanita Campbell Rasmus while she cofacilitated a men's spiritual retreat at the Center for Action and Contemplation. I walked into the session and was simply amazed by the presence of the Spirit in her. She's a One no doubt, but she's so much more!"

Richard Rohr, OFM, author of The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective
