Chip and Joanna Gaines have endeared themselves to millions of viewers who ❤️ restoring, fixing and transforming something old and worn into something new and beautiful—-all within a budget💰!
Their gorgeous kids Drake, Ella Rose, Emmie Kay, and Duke (yes-I’m all in) and that amazing picturesque🏡 farmhouse make it intriguing to watch those stunning home transformations in Waco, TX.
Fixer Upper 🛠🔧🔩 on HGTV 🖥 propelled their new book 📔to the New York Times, Amazon, USA Today and Barnes & Noble bestsellers lists for months (making it really difficult for me to snag a copy at my local library-bummer ☹️.)
However, finding nothing else that really peaked my interest and great 🌟🌟🌟🌟 reviews, I broke down and downloaded an e-copy of The Magnolia Storyby the Gaines onto my iPad.
To my surprise, I was not disappointed. I normally start a book, put it down and seldom return to it because I quickly lose interest. But this non-fiction beauty 💎 was different, I was literally hooked from beginning to end- starting with its take on a hilarious ⛵️ boat fiasco, their love story❤️, followed by who let the dogs out 🐶 and the forgotten sleeping baby.
At times, it did make me laugh, 😂 or cry 😢 and reflect upon those life challenges we all face-marriage, raising kids, and financial burdens–especially during the beginning years of their relationship.
However, it’s evident throughout their journey -an incredible work ethic, ❤️ joy for family and deep Christian faith has blessed them with God’s amazing grace and generosity.
I would highly recommend the book if you are a fan of the show and curious about the charismatic, dynamic duo who have reaped the fruits of their labor! I cannot wait for their upcoming show Fixer Upper: Behind the Design.
