Books by Joanna Gaines
As many of you already know, Chip and Joanna Gaines have 5 kids. So it’s no surprise that she would write a children’s book.
One of the many life skills Joanna Gaines passes down to her kids is gardening. Without a TV at home, her kids are getting dirty and learning how to make things grow. We Are the Gardeners is a children’s book illustrated by Julianna Swaney. It teaches kids the importance of what gardening can bring to your life.
One of the most popular books by Joanna Gaines is “Home Body”. In it, she helps you figure out your personal design aesthetic, as well as some of the basic elements of each. This can be great for anyone who is just starting out learning how to do interior design in their own home, and they want to take their skill set to the next level.
Many of you will already recognize the name Magnolia Table, because of Joanna’s new show on Discovery Plus. She always does recipes from one of her cookbooks. So it’s a lot of fun to see her cook this food on screen, knowing that I have the recipe ready to go if I ever want to make it for myself.
This is the sequel to the original Magnolia Table book. Just like the first, volume 2 gives lots of recipes from Joanna’s family and friends.
The Magnolia Story is a biography all about the story of how Chip and Joanna Gaines met. It also details the story of how they went from barely paying the bills to becoming multi millionaires. This book is truly inspirational, and it will help keep you motivated to have faith in God, and yourself.
After leaving their jobs on “Fixer Upper” on HGTV, one of the projects Chip and Jo started on right away was publishing the monthly Magnolia Journal magazine. I was one of their first subscribers, and I’ve received every issue since. The photography is always beautiful, and it gives me a lot of inspiration for my own home. In each magazine, we always get a forward from Jo, as well as a word from Chip. You also might see updates about the Gaines kids, too.
Books by Chip Gaines
We can’t forget about Chip, who is Joanna’s other half! All his life, Chip Gaines has wanted to be an entrepreneur. Long before he met Jo, he was flipping real estate and starting multiple side businesses. If you’re interested in his life before, during, and after the success of Fixer Upper, these are the books for you.
