The Magnolia Story

One of the things I look forward to when I go to the gym is watching HGTV. My favorite show on HGTV is Fixer Upper. I just love Chip and Joanna, they are so funny! Now you might be scratching your head wondering why I don't watch HGTV at home, well we don't have cable.

Just before Christmas, I learned that Chip and Joanna had written a book and I had to have it (it was literally one of four items on my Christmas list). I received the book for Christmas and read it in a few days.

Their book is Amazing! I would say it's in my top ten. It really is that good! The Magnolia Story lets you step inside the lives of Chip and Joanna. You learn how they met, how they started doing what they do and how they landed their television show. You also learn about their financial struggles, newlywed problems and their relationship with God. All of this is interlaced with hysterical predicaments the two would find themselves in.

I read portions of the book out loud to Andy and we both found ourselves laughing. We also felt very motivated and inspired to go after our dreams after reading their story. This book is a must read!
