Look for Chip Gaines new book Capital Gaines fall of 2017

Are you ready to see your fixer upper?

These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like--Who are these people?What's the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life? By renovating homes in Waco, Texas, and changing lives in such a winsome and engaging way, Chip and Joanna have become more than just the stars of Fixer Upper, they have become America's new best friends.

The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering their fans a detailed look at their life together. 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.

They both attended Baylor University in Waco. However, their paths did not 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 garners the attention of a television producer who notices her work on a blog one day.

In The Magnolia Story fans will finally get to join the Gaines 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

Joanna's breakthrough moment of discovering the secret to creating a beautiful home

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.

The Hundred Story Home: A Memoir of Finding Faith in Ourselves and in Something Bigger by Thomas Nelson

Kathy Izard was a graphic designer, wife, mother of four daughters, and volunteer at Charlotte's Urban Ministry Center when an unlikely meeting with formerly homeless author Denver Moore changed the course of her life.

Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi Study Guide with DVD, The: Come to the Land Where It All Began
Author: Gifford, Kathie Lee
Description:
The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi Study Guide with DVD: Come to the Land Where It All Began by Kathie Lee Gifford

A lifetime student of Scripture, popular television personality Kathie Lee Gifford has been traveling to Israel since she was seventeen years old. Having a Jewish father, she has always felt what she calls a deep resonance in my very being for the Jewish people and Land of the Covenant--Israel. But it wasn't until she started studying the original texts in Hebrew and Greek and hiking the land with teachers like Ray Vander Laan that she finally began to find what her soul had been longing for.

In this six-session video curriculum, Kathie Lee invites group participants to join her as she revisits some of these sites in Israel that have impacted her life and recounts events that happened there. As she shares her story, she will be accompanied by co-author Rabbi Jason Sobel, a Messianic Jewish Rabbi who will provide fascinating background details and eye-opening revelations that make the story of the New Testament come alive. Kathie Lee and Rabbi Sobel will take participants beyond the typical Sunday School teaching so prevalent in churches today to examine the true texts of the Bible.

Something profound happens when we follow along the ancient paths in the actual places where Jesus taught, healed, lived, died, was resurrected, and ascended into heaven. As Kathie Lee and Rabbi Sobel reveal in this study, Jesus is indeed the Rock and the Rabbi whom we follow along this Road in life. And when we are introduced to the mysteries of the Word by teachers who are actually trained in the ancient rabbinical way, radical transformation begins to renew our hearts and minds.

Sessions include:

Bethlehem: Where It All Began

Nazareth: Jesus' Early Years

Judean Wilderness: The Temptation

Galilee: Jesus' Early Ministry

Jerusalem 1: Teaching in the Temple

Jerusalem 2: Crucifixion and Resurrection

This pack contains one study guide and one DVD.

Leaving Cloud 9: The True Story of a Life Resurrected from the Ashes of Poverty, Trauma, and Mental Illness [Hardcover]
Author: Andersen, Ericka
Description:
Leaving Cloud 9: The True Story of a Life Resurrected from the Ashes of Poverty, Trauma, and Mental Illness by Ericka Andersen

A powerful, heartbreaking, and redemptive account of a boy who endured a childhood of poverty and abuse in an American Southwest trailer park named Cloud 9.

Abandoned by his father at age two, Rick Sylvester lived with an abusive mother whose struggles as a member of the working poor led her to drugs, alcohol, theft, and prostitution-and eventually attempted suicide. Rick battled depression, anxiety, and PTSD as the chaos, neglect, and unpredictability of his childhood seemed to doom him to follow in his mother's footsteps.

Well into adulthood, Rick stumbled through unemployment and divorce, using drugs and alcohol to numb the pain until he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Miraculously, though, he overcame the odds and today is a happy husband and father. How did this happen? Rick's answer is this: It was the Lord.

A message of hope to those who are drowning from an undeserved childhood, Leaving Cloud 9 speaks to millions who grew up poor, feeling ignored and hopeless, and who need the healing power of God. This indelibly American story conveys the steadfast love of Jesus and his power to deliver us from the most devastating of pasts.

Once Upon a Farm [Hardcover]
Author: Feek, Rory
Description:
Sometimes, it's not only what we plant but where we're planted. Now raising their 3-year old daughter, Indiana, alone, after Joey's passing, Rory Feek digs deep into the soil of his life and career to share the choices made and lessons learned that helped turn a middle Tennessee farm into a place that grew love and hope. As opposed to homesteading, this is instead a book on lifesteading, as Feek learns to cultivate faith, love, and fatherhood on a small farm, while doing everything but farming. With frequent stories of his and Joey's years together, and how those guide his life today, Rory unpacks just what it means to be open to new experiences. Much like Jesus' biblical parable, when we scatter our seeds, some will grow in the fertile land and warm sun. Feek contends that it's the same way with our dreams but we must always pay attention to what our story is teaching us. It's long been said that timing is everything, and it is, unless you haven't done the work to be prepared. What does it mean to cultivate life, to be open to new directions, to invest in another person as a way of connecting with God? Through his wealth of stories and vulnerable spirit, Rory opens up on those struggles in his own life and, in the process, shows the way for us all. This isn't a 'how to' book, it's more of a 'how we' or more accurately how He (God) planted us on a few acres of land and grew something bigger than Joey or I could have ever imagined. It's an ongoing story of a new frontier, all woven into a new season of learning to grow a new life and love in the land that his wife loved so much.

Hunting Charles Manson: The Quest for Justice in the Days of Helter Skelter [Hardcover]
Author: Wiehl, Lis
Description:
Hunting Charles Manson: The Quest for Justice in the Days of Helter Skelter by Lis Wiehl

New York Times bestselling author and former federal prosecutor Lis Wiehl uses new research and first-hand interviews to tell the heart-pounding story of Charles Manson's horrific crimes, the painstaking investigation that followed, and the inspired prosecution that put him away.

In the late summer of 1969, the nation was transfixed by a series of gruesome murders in the hills of Los Angeles. Newspapers and television programs detailed the brutal slayings of a beautiful actress-twenty-six years-old and eight months pregnant with her first child-as well as a hair stylist, an heiress, a small businessman, and other victims. The City of Angels was plunged into a nightmare of fear and dread. In the weeks and months that followed, law enforcement faced intense pressure to solve crimes that seemed to have no connection.

Finally, after months of dead-ends, false leads, and near-misses, Charles Manson and members of his family were arrested. The bewildering trials that followed once again captured the nation and forever secured Manson as a byword for the evil that men do.

Drawing upon deep archival research and exclusive personal interviews-including unique access to Manson Family parole hearings-former Fox News legal analyst and bestselling author Lis Wiehl gives readers a propulsive, page-turning historical thriller of the crimes and manhunt that mesmerized the nation. And in the process, she reveals how the social and political context that gave rise to Manson is eerily similar to our own.

Real Artists Don't Starve
Author: Goins, Jeff
Description:
Bestselling author and creativity expert Jeff Goins dismantles the myth that being creative is a hindrance to success by revealing how an artistic temperament is in fact a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Now in trade paper. For centuries, the myth of the starving artist has dominated our culture, seeping into the minds of creative people and stifling their pursuits. But the truth is that the world's most successful artists did not starve. In fact, they capitalized on the power of their creative strength. In Real Artists Don't Starve , Jeff Goins debunks the myth of the starving artist by unveiling the ideas that created it and replacing them with timeless strategies for thriving artists, including steal from your influences (don't wait for inspiration), collaborate with others (working alone is a surefire way to starve), take strategic risks (instead of reckless ones), make money in order to make more art (it's not selling out), and apprentice under a master (a lone genius can never reach full potential). Through inspiring anecdotes of successful creatives both past and present, Goins shows that living by these rules is not only doable but it's also a fulfilling way to thrive. From graphic designers and writers to artists and business professionals, creatives already know that no one is born an artist. Goins's revolutionary rules celebrate the process of becoming an artist, a person who utilizes the imagination in fundamental ways. He reminds creatives that business and art are not mutually exclusive pursuits. In fact, success in business and in life flow from a healthy exercise of creativity. Expanding upon the groundbreaking work in his previous bestseller The Art of Work , Goins explores the tension every creative person and organization faces in an effort to blend the inspired life with a practical path to success. Being creative isn't a disadvantage for success; rather, it is a powerful tool to be harnessed.
