The Magnolia Story Reviews
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 being normal. Through hardships, through good times, and through each other. I love that.
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.
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

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’d frequented their website a few times.
The things that I find entertaining, endearing sometimes, are how “normal” they are. Neither comes from a well-to-do family, but clearly from loving families. They are as Ozzie an ...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
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 :)

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 one thing to say to her . . . .
But I am addicted enough that the DVR is set to record every episode and I watch every single one of them – even the ones I’ve already seen three or four times.
I arrived late to the Fixer Upper part ...more
