Nonfiction Book Review: The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines and Mark Dagostino

Book Description:
Are you ready to see your fixer upper?
These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like—Who are these people? What's the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life? By renovating homes in Waco, Texas, and changing lives in such a winsome and engaging way, Chip and Joanna have become more than just the stars of Fixer Upper, they have become America’s new best friends.

The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering their fans a detailed look at their life together. From the very first renovation project they ever tackled together, to the project that nearly cost them everything; from the childhood memories that shaped them, to the twists and turns that led them to the life they share on the farm today.

My Review:
I am a fan of the HGTV show Fixer Upper. If you're familiar with the show that focuses on a young couple who buy and flip homes for their clients, then you know Chip and Joanna Gaines. They bring a positive energy to the show and a sincere, self-deprecating truth through their story. The Magnolia Story also reflects their genuine and transparent lives. Their book shares their ups and downs in the restoration business along with a touch of their faith in God. I enjoyed reading about the way they met, their courtship, and the addition of each child to their growing family. If you enjoy a positive story about good people mixed with a large dose of reality, you'll like The Magnolia Story. For what it lacks in glitz and glamour, it spills over with hope and love. I purchased my copy from Amazon.
