Book Review

The Magnolia Story
By Chip & Joanna Gaines
Thomas Nelson
Reviewed by Diane Busch

If you know who Chip and Joanna Gaines are, then you have to read or listen to this book!  They both read the audiobook and it's so real - so them!

Their story is amazing!  If I liked them before I love them now.  Through all the years, the ups and the downs, they have trusted God and He has been their guide.  Joanna is the level-headed organized planner and Chip is the fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants impulsive business man, salesman, builder, whatever. The two of them together make it work, but it's a marvel that their marriage works and their business together works. Pink and blue really do make purple.  

They are talented and smart and industrious and very hard workers.  They are loving parents to four children besides all they do with their shop, their home building, renovating, and flipping houses.  It's amazing!  And ironically as much as we all know them from their television show, they don't own a t.v.  

This book is delightful and challenging. Go get it today - you will not be disappointed!  (The center of the hardcover book has family photos through the years, and the end of the audiobook includes some live audio from a production meeting).
