    I ran across the show Fixer Upper when I was recovering from surgery sometime after their first season, it gave me something to dream about, all the things I wished I could do in my home, if I just had Chip and Joanna?s help. I knew they?d recently come out with a magazine, and I...

    If I had planned my life, it never would have ended up like this. So maybe it?s kind of fun not to plan. Maybe it?s more fun just to see where life takes you. After all, we?re living proof that sometimes even the messiest stuff and the biggest mistakes can take you someplace wond...

    I'm a huge fan of Fixer Upper, so I was looking forward to reading Chip and Jo's memoir more than I care to admit. Unfortunately, I found it neither uplifting nor inspiring - nor even particularly interesting. And sadly, it tarnished for me their Fixer Upper image as a couple - not sur...

    This book was my bowling-ball-with-my-name-on-it gift to my wife this Christmas, la Homer's gift to Marge in that old Simpsons episode. What I'm saying is I bought this for her, but it was really for me. Thing is, I knew she'd love it, and she did. She read it in its entirety on...

    I like Chip and Joanna. HOWEVER. I have a feeling this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I thought this book made them look...not good. Whether it was Chip leaving his newborn baby home alone TWICE, tying said baby's car seat to his 4-wheeler, or buying multiple homes and forcin...

    I was late to the Fixer Upper show on HGTV. Fortunately, I was able to binge watch all 3 seasons over a lazy weekend and fell in love with the Chip and Joanna show. I have absolutely nothing in common with this couple - Happily single! Happily childfree! Happily a big city girl! Yet th...

    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 G...

    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 peop...

    I would absolutely let the Gaines remodel a house for me, but this book was just OK. Like a lot of propaganda biographies written during the height of popularity, this one skims the surface giving just enough sweet and insightful information to be interesting but lacks in depth. This i...

    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! ...

    Very sweet and inspirational. I loved the encouraging words towards having a happy marriage and family the most. They're certainly hard workers and God has used them to glorify Him in all they do. I am glad that they have shared their story with us all. The audio was read by the couple...

    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...

    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 ...

    I love Chip and Joanna. I can't help it. Even though I've only seen a couple episodes of their show Fixer Upper, I still feel like I know the two personally. They're some of the most realistic, honest, down-to-earth people. Their love for their home, family, work, and Jesus is evident ...

    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 thei...

    I feel like this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but here goes: I wish I hadn't read this book. I like Fixer Upper. It is a fun, distracting show, and I enjoyed the hosts and their farm and their kids and their antics. I knew about the whole anti-gay church thing, but I hoped they...

    I love Chip and Joanna. I can't help it. Even though I've only seen a couple episodes of their show Fixer Upper, I still feel like I know the two personally. They're some of the most realistic, honest, down-to-earth people. Their love for their home, family, work, and Jesus is evident ...

    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 thei...

    I feel like this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but here goes: I wish I hadn't read this book. I like Fixer Upper. It is a fun, distracting show, and I enjoyed the hosts and their farm and their kids and their antics. I knew about the whole anti-gay church thing, but I hoped they...

    What can I say... I was a fan of the show the first moment I saw it on HGTV. It became instant must see TV. For me it was Chip. I had a bit of a Man Crush. I admit it. He is just a cool dude in a loose mood. The book is probably more enjoyable because I am a fan of the show... and ...

    This was so good! I loved listening to them narrate their own story. They are hands down two of the most inspirational people on tv today. Who needs all the drama and vulgar aspects?! They prove that you can be real and not shy away from your faith in God and inspire others through...

    What a fascinating look at Chip and Joanna Gain's lives. I listened to the audio and loved hearing them "tell" their story. There is so much more to this wonderful couple than just what we've seen on Fixer Upper. They have wisdom to share and faith to inspire. I loved this book and rec...

    I ran across the show Fixer Upper when I was recovering from surgery sometime after their first season, it gave me something to dream about, all the things I wished I could do in my home, if I just had Chip and Joanna?s help. I knew they?d recently come out with a magazine, and I...

    If I had planned my life, it never would have ended up like this. So maybe it?s kind of fun not to plan. Maybe it?s more fun just to see where life takes you. After all, we?re living proof that sometimes even the messiest stuff and the biggest mistakes can take you someplace wond...

    I'm a huge fan of Fixer Upper, so I was looking forward to reading Chip and Jo's memoir more than I care to admit. Unfortunately, I found it neither uplifting nor inspiring - nor even particularly interesting. And sadly, it tarnished for me their Fixer Upper image as a couple - not sur...

    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 G...

    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 G...

    The delightful story of the life and times of Chip and Joanna Gaines. SUMMARY The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, and it offers a detailed look at their life together, from how they first met to how they became the media darlings of HGTV. It includes the ver...

    "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, yo...

    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 peop...

    I would absolutely let the Gaines remodel a house for me, but this book was just OK. Like a lot of propaganda biographies written during the height of popularity, this one skims the surface giving just enough sweet and insightful information to be interesting but lacks in depth. This i...

    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! ...

    Very sweet and inspirational. I loved the encouraging words towards having a happy marriage and family the most. They're certainly hard workers and God has used them to glorify Him in all they do. I am glad that they have shared their story with us all. The audio was read by the couple...

    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...

    I love reading biographies, and this one was especially fun since it's about a hilarious, dynamic couple. One of my favorite things was seeing how the different backgrounds, personalities, and skills God gave them ended up being tailor-made for each other. I've watched some of their sh...

    Follow God. Follow your dreams. Stop surviving and start thriving. Never give up. Contentment and joy are found during the journey. This is what I got from this book, and Chip and Joanna's story was amazing. <3 :) ...

    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 ...

    I love Chip and Joanna. I can't help it. Even though I've only seen a couple episodes of their show Fixer Upper, I still feel like I know the two personally. They're some of the most realistic, honest, down-to-earth people. Their love for their home, family, work, and Jesus is evident ...

    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 thei...

    First off, I am a fan of Fixer Upper and Chip and Joanna Gaines! I loved their personality, their family values and their creativity. The book The Magnolia Story, allows to reader to travel back to Chip and Joanna's childhood, high school, college years, courtship, honeymoon and their ...

    This book was my bowling-ball-with-my-name-on-it gift to my wife this Christmas, la Homer's gift to Marge in that old Simpsons episode. What I'm saying is I bought this for her, but it was really for me. Thing is, I knew she'd love it, and she did. She read it in its entirety on...

    I ran across the show Fixer Upper when I was recovering from surgery sometime after their first season, it gave me something to dream about, all the things I wished I could do in my home, if I just had Chip and Joanna?s help. I knew they?d recently come out with a magazine, and I...

    If I had planned my life, it never would have ended up like this. So maybe it?s kind of fun not to plan. Maybe it?s more fun just to see where life takes you. After all, we?re living proof that sometimes even the messiest stuff and the biggest mistakes can take you someplace wond...

    I was late to the Fixer Upper show on HGTV. Fortunately, I was able to binge watch all 3 seasons over a lazy weekend and fell in love with the Chip and Joanna show. I have absolutely nothing in common with this couple - Happily single! Happily childfree! Happily a big city girl! Yet th...

    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 G...

    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 peop...

    I would absolutely let the Gaines remodel a house for me, but this book was just OK. Like a lot of propaganda biographies written during the height of popularity, this one skims the surface giving just enough sweet and insightful information to be interesting but lacks in depth. This i...

    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 love Chip and Joanna. I can't help it. Even though I've only seen a couple episodes of their show Fixer Upper, I still feel like I know the two personally. They're some of the most realistic, honest, down-to-earth people. Their love for their home, family, work, and Jesus is evident ...

    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 thei...

    First off, I am a fan of Fixer Upper and Chip and Joanna Gaines! I loved their personality, their family values and their creativity. The book The Magnolia Story, allows to reader to travel back to Chip and Joanna's childhood, high school, college years, courtship, honeymoon and their ...

    "Are you ready to see your fixer upper?" The husband and wife duo of Chip and Joanna Gaines have captured the imagination of DIY enthusiasts with their hit HGTV show Fixer Upper. Faithful followers of the program will know that the couple's reach extends way beyond the TV screen. Ch...

    I feel like this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but here goes: I wish I hadn't read this book. I like Fixer Upper. It is a fun, distracting show, and I enjoyed the hosts and their farm and their kids and their antics. I knew about the whole anti-gay church thing, but I hoped they...

    What can I say... I was a fan of the show the first moment I saw it on HGTV. It became instant must see TV. For me it was Chip. I had a bit of a Man Crush. I admit it. He is just a cool dude in a loose mood. The book is probably more enjoyable because I am a fan of the show... and ...

    I ran across the show Fixer Upper when I was recovering from surgery sometime after their first season, it gave me something to dream about, all the things I wished I could do in my home, if I just had Chip and Joanna?s help. I knew they?d recently come out with a magazine, and I...

    If I had planned my life, it never would have ended up like this. So maybe it?s kind of fun not to plan. Maybe it?s more fun just to see where life takes you. After all, we?re living proof that sometimes even the messiest stuff and the biggest mistakes can take you someplace wond...

    I'm a huge fan of Fixer Upper, so I was looking forward to reading Chip and Jo's memoir more than I care to admit. Unfortunately, I found it neither uplifting nor inspiring - nor even particularly interesting. And sadly, it tarnished for me their Fixer Upper image as a couple - not sur...

    The Magnolia Story was a daily audible deal that I grabbed because I know my husband enjoyed their TV show. We listened to this on a day road trip. Both Chip and Joanna narrated the book. The way they told the story made it feel like I had gone out to dinner with them and they were...

    This book was my bowling-ball-with-my-name-on-it gift to my wife this Christmas, la Homer's gift to Marge in that old Simpsons episode. What I'm saying is I bought this for her, but it was really for me. Thing is, I knew she'd love it, and she did. She read it in its entirety on...

    ?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 fi...

    I like Chip and Joanna. HOWEVER. I have a feeling this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I thought this book made them look...not good. Whether it was Chip leaving his newborn baby home alone TWICE, tying said baby's car seat to his 4-wheeler, or buying multiple homes and forcin...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ I have a confession to make. My name is Kelly and I am addicted to Fixer Upper. Maybe not as much as the woman I see all around town wearing various shirts with stuff like this on the front . . . . I have on...

    How can you help but love Chip and Joanna Gaines! ? A few quick thoughts that have stuck with me since listening to this audio. Chip and Joanna narrated this - love that, and they had their banter, talking together thing just like the show. I love love love that they don?t ...

    I was late to the Fixer Upper show on HGTV. Fortunately, I was able to binge watch all 3 seasons over a lazy weekend and fell in love with the Chip and Joanna show. I have absolutely nothing in common with this couple - Happily single! Happily childfree! Happily a big city girl! Yet th...

    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 G...

    ...And they always found the exact amount of money that they needed. And they always happened to have a wealthy friend that could bail them out. And they always had a direct intervention from God. And it always works itself out in the end. And they all lived happily ever after... T...

    The delightful story of the life and times of Chip and Joanna Gaines. SUMMARY The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, and it offers a detailed look at their life together, from how they first met to how they became the media darlings of HGTV. It includes the ver...

    "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, yo...

    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 peop...
