Since Chip and Joanna Gaines first debuted on their hit TV show Fixer Upper, their fun-filled relationship has captivated
audiences just as much as their stunning home renovations. Here they tell their
story: how God brought together an unlikely couple – a risk-taker and a
security-seeker – and made them stronger together.
The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering a detailed look at their life together. From the very first renovation project they ever tackled together, to the project that nearly cost them everything; from the childhood memories that shaped them, to the twists and turns that led them to the life they share on the farm today.
They both attended Baylor University in Waco. However, their paths did not cross until Chip checked his car into the local Firestone tire shop where Joanna worked behind the counter. Even back then Chip was a serial entrepreneur who, among other things, ran a lawn care company, sold fireworks, and flipped houses. Soon they were married and living in their first fixer upper. Four children and countless renovations later, Joanna garners the attention of a television producer who notices her work on a blog one day.
In The Magnolia Story come behind the scenes and discover:
The time Chip ran to the grocery store and forgot to take their new, sleeping baby
Joanna’s agonizing decision to close her dream business to focus on raising their children
When Chip buys a houseboat, sight-unseen, and it turns out to be a leaky wreck
Joanna’s breakthrough moment of discovering the secret to creating a beautiful home
Harrowing stories of the financial ups and downs as an entrepreneurial couple
Memories and photos from Chip and Jo’s wedding
The significance of the word magnolia and why it permeates everything they do
The way the couple pays the popularity of Fixer Upper forward, sharing the success with others, and bolstering the city of Waco along the way
And yet there is still one lingering question for fans of the show: Is Chip really that funny? "Oh yeah," says Joanna. "He was, and still is, my first fixer upper."
“Nothing more than an addition to the ever-growing list of household names made famous by television.” This was my opinion; skeptical of most things made popular by social media or TV. Reading this book showed me how little I knew. The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines is not only a very funny account of completely different personalities, but a highly inspiring story of two people who hear and follow God’s still, small voice. Their story challenges you to see yourself as uniquely and wonderfully made and will inspire you to live boldly as that person. I’ve long held the belief we are called to be world changers. This book is a perfect case in point. If you’re in need of encouragement this book will not let you down, Chip and Joanna are more than just another television sensation. They’re a great example of a marriage built on a solid foundation of Christ and this book captures their story beautifully.
