This is Part 3 of a three-part episode on the origins, concerns, and Christian use of the Enneagram. In this episode, Beth, Jeff, Adam Breckenridge, and Tyler Zach discuss how a Christian worldview (to know and experience God and His truth) is very different from the secular Enneagram worldview (to understand ourselves and define truth on our own terms). They examine what we have in common (brokenness) and what is different (how we find redemption), and how to wisely use the tool of the Enneagram.

Episode 57: From Basement to Sanctuary with Holly Christine Hayes

Podcast cover
Read more

Holly Christine Hayes is Founder + CEO of Sanctuary Project, a survivor-run nonprofit social enterprise employing and empowering women who’ve survived lives of trafficking, violence, and addiction in Austin, TX. Holly was rescued out of a life of trauma more than nineteen years ago and knows the path to recovery can be long and rocky. Her vision and leadership create a safe space for other survivors to grow in practical skills, unleash their creativity, embrace their femininity, and heal their hearts – all in community with other survivors. Sanctuary Project was recently named Austin Woman Magazine's 2020 Women's Way Business Awards "Business to Watch - Under $3M". Their impact jewelry line can be seen both online and at several local and national boutiques and was recently picked up by Target.com as their newest jewelry brand, launching in the Fall of 2020.

An award-winning author of the book “From Basement to Sanctuary,” Holly is passionate about sharing her vulnerable journey of healing and finding hope in Christ. She speaks in jails, churches, recovery communities and conferences all over the globe about transformation from trauma and the Redeemer who can lift any life from the pit.

In her spare time, she and her husband, Jeff, enjoy life on a hobby farm and vineyard in Southwest Austin, with their chickens, goats, cows, dogs and newest addition to the farm, their daughter Havana, who they welcomed last July.
