The Magnolia Story Reviews
Ya'll, this was awesome. Chip and Joanna are some of the most amazing people. They are just some of the most down to earth and real people I have ever heard of. This book was a wonderful glance into their busy, beautiful life. It made me laugh hysterically, (Chip has the effect on people, I imagine) and *almost* made me cry. They are just real people, with real issues, and a VERY real God! There is no romanticization, drama, or anything like that with either the TV show or this book. What you se ...more
"It was such a blessing. . . thriving in the middle of pain. Unless you find a way to do that there's always going to be this fake illusion that once you get there - wherever "there" is for you - you'll be happy. But that's just not life. If you can't find happiness in the ugliness, you're not going to find it in the beauty, either." ~ Joanna Gains
If there is a more gracious, talented, hard-working, joyful, morally astute, and down-to-earth reality-show couple featured on HGTV (or any other netw ...more
My parents have spent many an hour watching HGTV, DIY, and similar shows on other networks, so, I've gotten to know "home improvement" celebrities such as Nicole Curtis, Peter Walsh, the Scott brothers, and Andrew Dan-Jumbo rather well.
What did I think about this book? It's a very inspiring story of romance and faith in God...all the more so because it's true. Letting both Chip and Jo tell their sides of the stories separately was a nice touch. Reading this makes me want to read more biographies ...more
Such a wonderful book!! After reading this I love this family even more! Their faith and love of family is inspiring. I will miss their show on hgtv but it is not surprising they want more time for the important things!
I rarely dish out five stars for anything that was written in this century but this book touched my heart so deeply, I had to rate it so highly.
Obviously like the rest of society, I've fallen under the Magnolia spell. Chip and Joanna Gaines are worthy of all the praise dished their way because they quickly direct it to our Supreme Creator.
I'm embarrassed to admit, but I didn't think anyone who wasn't LDS could describe how I see and experience the world. I no longer believe that. Joanna Gaines ...more
“Are you ready to see your fixer-upper?” HGTV fans know these words well. They are spoken by Waco, Texas’, most famous couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines, on their weekly television show as they are about to reveal the fruits of their labors to the homeowners who eagerly await the first look at their newly refurbished homes.
The Magnolia Story recounts Chip and Joanna’s story in their own words. They tell us how they met, how they struggled, and how they overcame tremendous obstacles. Why “magnolia”? ...more
I have a slight addiction to HGTV. It’s not a constant addiction; it merely flares up from time to time. However, there is one HGTV show that I always watch as soon as an episode airs, and that show is Fixer Upper. I love Chip and Jo’s relationship, and the family dynamic they have with their four kids. I love seeing little snippets of their life on their farm and how Jo handles Chip’s endearing but exasperating dorkiness. I love how involved they are in their community, and how supportive they ...more
This book is much like the "Fixer-Upper" TV show that made Chip and Joanna Gaines famous -- wholesome, light, a little bit funny, and no real drama. Die-hard fans of the show will likely love the book. The basic message here is "work hard and follow your dreams. And don't forget that God has a plan for your life". If you like these two, and this sort of message resonates with you, this will be one quick read. Just know that there's not a lot of substance.
