It’s only been a little over a year since starting on television, but I’m certain that everyone has heard of the show ‘Fixer Upper.’ Chip and Joanna Gaines have taken the design and renovation world by storm.

Imagine this: a famous and successful couple who live life simply and only with Christ in mind when it comes to their strong knit family. Pretty unheard of, right?

Chip and Joanna have done just that. They have made it very known in their show and in interviews that it is their intention to keep Christ first. To live a life without greed, but lots and lots of really cute farmhouse decor ( I mean, their designs are amazing!).

Having a famous television show and also a well know store, Magnolia Market, it appears that fame and fortune will not go to the couples head. They have four children and have made it very known that they want their kiddos to be humble. To live a life of generosity and to give rather than to take.

They own a simple farmhouse with no television sets. Their kids live a life on the farm, with normal chores and lots of fun. Chip and Joanna remind America, that in an age of phones and computers taking over your life, family is what really matters.

It is not often that we can relate so well to a celebrity. Joanna has often talked about motherhood being the most important thing. Every aspect of being a mother should be cherished. I am also a mother of four, and watching Joanna has inspired me. She has not let her busy life get in the way of raising her beautiful family.

In Hollywood we hear so often of couples divorcing. Chip and Joanna are a rare breed. They show a picture of just how God intended marriage to be. They show respect and love to one another, which sadly is overlooked in so many marriages.

So, whether you love design, renovations, religion or not, you can expect to watch Chip and Joanna for even just a few minutes and be inspired to live a better life. It’s no wonder they have been named the “Best Real-life Couple on TV” by Vogue. Anyone with a heartbeat can understand why Chip and Joanna are true ‘Fixer Uppers.’

“Whether you’re staying home and raising beautiful babies or you’re the CEO of a multi-million dollar company, let God speak into your life. Let His father heart come and say, ‘This is what I have for you.’ I think that’s the key – not believing the lies, fixing our eyes on Jesus, and walking in the truth.” – Joanna Gaines

Hi! I'm Katie Brady! I live in Omaha, Nebraska with my husband and four kids. I have a six-year-old, four-year-old, three-year-old, and a one-year-old. Three girls and a little boy! So, I'm kept busy at home with them. I've always had such a passion for writing, but since my youngest was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis it has become a form of therapy. I'm so excited to share our life with everyone!
