by Chip Gaines,
“The Magnolia Story” is the best story of one family’s beginnings, dreams, growth, challenges and persistence. Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines are the author of this amazing book. It is a great story about how God takes cares of the faithful. The Magnolia Story is much more than a glossy glimpse behind the scenes of HGTV’s Fixer Upper reality series. Rather, it tells the story a young couple who isn’t afraid to dream and is willing to take the risks and commit the energy and resources to make their dreams reality. Joanna and Chip Gaines are a real couple with a real small business. They do real jobs for real people who are investing their real money in their real dream projects.
Joanna and Chip Gaines are humble and thankful, they admit a greater power is in charge. They know the importance of faith, family and friends in their lives. Their family has flourished through the ups and downs. Joanna shares, “Our marriage never suffered in all we’ve gone through because Chip and I were drawn even closer together, knowing down deep in our hearts that we had to hold on to each other if we were even going to make it out alive.” A key take-away for this reader, what we see as debilitating trials may actually be the greatest of blessings. So, this book is highly recommended for all those who love their show and yet still want to know more about this wonderful couple and their family.
