“The work we did manage to touch a lot of people’s lives, and it’s just not possible to put into words the gratitude we feel for each and every person who’s helped us along the way,” shares Joanna in the book. “I simply never could have imagined just how much God had in store for us, and I certainly couldn’t have dreamed just how many keys to other doors God had already placed in our hands.”

Having had their share of challenges and roadblocks and growing into a successful business with Magnolia Homes and Joanna’s success with her beloved Magnolia shop, laid the foundation for all the blessings chasing them down. Now with a family of four children and things coming together, “Fixer Upper” couldn’t have come at a better time.

With family always being at the forefront these two managed to create an empire of successful ventures while still maintaining a normal family life for their kids and providing a place of refuge and peace to come home to in a farm house they bought and were renovating as their dream home come true from years ago.

It’s this very experience and Chip’s knack for surprising Joanna with new adventures such as purchasing a run-down houseboat that created the perfect filming scenario capturing the honest interaction and how they work through situations that would be the successful formula behind the hit HGTV show as shared in the book.

5. Beyond the Horizon

As their business grew so did the need for a bigger space to have thousands come to visit and in October 2015, Magnolia Market at the Silos opened. “The best part of all this growth is that we’ve been able to channel it right back in the town we love,” shared Joanna in the book. Not only have they been a blessing to Waco, Texas and their employees, but along the path they have shared their kindness with strangers through interactions and blessings they have shared with those crossing their path as far away as Colorado.
