About Joanna Gaines
Joanna Gaines is the co-owner and co-founder of Magnolia, a New York Times bestselling author, Editor in Chief of Magnolia Journal, and co-creator of Magnolia Network.
Born in Kansas and raised in the Lone Star State, Jo graduated from Baylor University with a degree in Communications. It was an internship in New York City that prompted her desire to discover how she could create beauty for people in their homes. In a big city unknown to her, Jo always felt most at home whenever she stepped inside the cozy and thoughtfully curated boutique shops, which inspired her to open a shop of her own in Waco, Texas.
Alongside her passion for design and food, nothing inspires Jo more than time spent at home with Chip and their five kids.

An exclusive look at America's first family of renovation! Taking you behind the scenes, Chip and Joanna Gaines share the story of how they met, the ups and downs of being an entrepreneurial couple, and how they built a life they love.
The Magnolia Story is the first book from dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. Offering their fans a detailed look at their life together, they share everything 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.
While they both attended Baylor University in Waco, their paths didn’t cross until Chip checked his car into the local Firestone tire shop where Joanna worked behind the counter. Even back then Chip was a serial entrepreneur who, among other things, ran a lawn care company, sold fireworks, and flipped houses. Soon they were married and living in their first fixer upper.
Four children and countless renovations later, Joanna garnered the attention of a television producer who noticed her work on a blog one day, leading to the incredible Fixer Upper phenomenon.
In The Magnolia Story, fans will finally get to join the Gaines family behind the scenes and discover:
- The time Chip ran to the grocery store and forgot to take their new, sleeping baby
- Joanna’s agonizing decision to close her dream business to focus on raising their children
- When Chip buys a houseboat, sight-unseen, and it turns out to be a leaky wreck
- Harrowing stories of the financial ups and downs as an entrepreneurial couple
- Memories and photos from Chip and Jo’s wedding
- The significance of the word magnolia and why it permeates everything they do
- The way the couple pays the popularity of Fixer Upper forward, sharing the success with others, and bolstering the city of Waco along the way
And yet there is still one lingering question for fans of the show: Is Chip really that funny? “Oh yeah,” says Joanna. “He was, and still is, my first fixer upper.”
In her first solo memoir, New York Times bestselling author Joanna Gaines invites us on an authentic and deeply vulnerable journey into her story--and helps shine a light on the beauty of our own--guiding us to release the weights that hold us back so we may live and share our story in truth.
We've all dropped anchor in places that suited us for a time: a city, a perspective, a lie we mistook as truth. This book is an invitation to a kind of life where you know how to hold what you believe--about yourself and the quiet worlds behind the people you pass--with gracious and open hands. To see your story as greater than any past or future thing, but for all the beauty and joy and hope it holds today. It's an invitation to take stock of the chapters you've lived--the good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly--glean what's gold, and carry only that forward. Let it slow your feet and steady your life-in-motion so you can see where you stand today from a new point of view. No longer through weary or uncertain eyes, but a lens brimming with hope.
"The only way to break free was to rewrite my story. Because something would happen every time my pen stopped: it was like my soul was coming back to my body. Like the deepest parts of me that got knocked around and drowned out by all the crap I let the world convince me about who I was came back to the surface. And what was left was only what was real and true. I was, finally, standing in the fullness of my story. I felt hopeful. I felt full. Our story may crack us open, but it also pieces us back together.
We all have a story to tell. This happens to be mine--every chapter a window into who I am, the journey I'm on, and the season I'm in right now. Because this is my story, maybe you won't always relate, or maybe it will feel like you're looking in a mirror. Whatever we have in common and whatever differences lie between us, I only hope my story can help shine a light on the beauty of yours. That my own soul work will stir something of your own. And that by the time you get to the end of my story, you're also holding the beautiful beginnings of your own.
A story only you can tell. And I hope that you will."

This powerful essay collection is a natural extension of the #MeToo movement, revealing the interior experience of women after they’ve inevitably been underestimated or hurt—the epiphany that the world is different than they thought it to be—and how they’ve used this knowledge to make change.
In My Moment, Gloria Steinem tells the story of how a meeting with writer Terry Southern drew blood. Carol Burnett shares how CBS discouraged her from pursuing The Carol Burnett Show, because comedy variety shows were “a man’s game.” Joanna Gaines reveals how coming to New York City as a young woman helped her embrace her Korean heritage after enduring racist bullying as a child. Author Maggie Smith details a career crossroads when her boss declined her request to work from home after the birth of her daughter, leading her to quit and never look back.
Over and over again, when told “no” these women said “yes” to themselves. This hugely inspiring, beautiful book will move people of all ages and make them feel less alone. More than the sum of its parts, My Moment is also a handbook for young women (or any woman) making their way through the world.
En "¡Tenemos un huerto!", Joanna Gaines y sus hijos relatan cómo cultivaron su huerto, las dificultades que tuvieron y todo lo que aprendieron hasta que lo lograron. Una aventura inspiradora que anima a los niños a probar cosas nuevas, a no tener miedo a cometer errores y, sobre todo, a que el trabajo duro siempre tiene recompensa.

Die Erfolgsserie Fixer Upper ermöglichte den TV-Stars Chip und Joanna Gaines, ihre große Leidenschaft, das Renovieren alter Häuser in Waco, Texas, in etwas weitaus Größeres zu verwandeln. Mit ihrer humorvollen, authentischen Art, ihrem Zusammenhalt und Familiensinn sowie ihren einzigartigen Design-Ideen eroberten sie die Herzen ihres Publikums im Sturm. Dies alles geschah so schnell, dass sich ihre immer größer werdende Fangemeinde bisweilen fragte: Wer sind die beiden? Woher kommen sie? Was ist ihr Erfolgsgeheimnis? Und sollte ich nicht auch nach Waco ziehen?
Magnolia Story ist das erste Buch von Chip und Joanna Gaines, das ihren Fans einen Blick hinter die Kulissen bietet - vom allerersten Renovierungsprojekt, das sie gemeinsam in Angriff genommen haben bis zu dem Projekt, das sie fast alles gekostet hätte. Sie erzählen von prägenden Kindheitserinnerungen und besonderen Wendungen in ihrem turbulenten Leben, das sie heute auf einer Farm teilen – gemeinsam mit ihren vier Kindern und jeder Menge Tiere, in ihren weiter wachsenden Rollen als Unternehmer, Designer und gute Nachbarn.
Und dennoch bleibt für Fans der TV-Serie eine Frage offen: Ist Chip wirklich so lustig?
"Oh ja", sagt Joanna, "das ist er! Und er war und ist immer noch mein erster Fixer Upper."
