Will you like it?
I loved hearing the stories of Chip and Joanna Gaines.  I am completely obsessed with their show, Fixer Upper!  It was wonderful to finally get a glimpse of the people behind all of the funny bits you see on television.  The love that they share for each other, their family, and their community shines through.  They have had a lot of lucky breaks in their lives, and they credit it all to their faith.  I found it refreshing that they talk about their faith but are not overly preachy.

Overall, if you love their show, you must read their book!  I would recommend the audiobook, because it is narrated by both Chip and Joanna.  Such a wonderful read!

Disclosure: I borrowed the audiobook and printed book from my local library.
