I recently finished my latest audible, The Magnolia Story written and narrated by Chip and Joanna Gaines.


So, if you live under a rock and do not know who Chip and Joanna are, they are the stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. I absolutely love their family, the show, their relationship and their business drive, and of course Joanna’s décor style. After reading this book, I have fallen even more in love with them as a couple. What you see is what you get with Chip and Joanna. It’s clear when you watch their show and even crystal clear when you read the book.


maxresdefaultMany people think they have this once in million years type love story, but they actually don’t. 17 chapters of hearing Chip and Joanna going back and forth in the book just exemplifies how real they are and how real the love they have for each other is as well. Granted, they do have a unique love story. But it something you’ll admire and learn from- not something you’ll strive to copy. Because you simply can’t. book gives you the back story to the faces you see on TV and the amazing story they both have to tell. The story is not all about Chip and Joanna as business partners and husband & wife. But tells their individuals stories before they met, before they got married and the individual pieces of them that makes their relationship and family so special and interesting to watch. I could only pray for a mate made so unique to me as they have found in each other.

Passion Locked gives The Magnolia Story 5 stars. I would definitely recommend this book to all my viewers. So head on over to your app store and download audible then purchase this read from Amazon or buy it from your local book store. I’m sure you’ll love it just as I.

I think my next read will be …. Black Privilege, Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It by Charlamagne Tha God… This one should be interesting.

Until Next Time
