Description

New York Times Bestselling author Joanna Gaines invites guests - including podcast-reluctant Chip Gaines - to discuss her new book, The Stories We Tell. Filled with the same wit and hard-won wisdom you expect from the stars of Fixer Upper and Magnolia founders, this four-episode series shines a light on the vulnerable side of Jo as she speaks candidly about doubt and belief, shame and acceptance, and finding strength in self-discovery. Jo writes, “Earlier this year, I wrote down my story—all the people and places and moments from my life that shaped me. Some of it broke my heart, and some of it pieced it back together. But all of it made me surer than ever that the stories we tell—to ourselves and to each other—can heal, they can help us grow, and make us think. But mostly, stories are how we connect. That’s what led me to this podcast, to a place where we can share our stories together.” The series will feature solo conversations between Chip and Jo, along with other special guests, plus stories from others mixed in along the way. There is hope and power in living out the fullness of your story. But you don’t have to write it alone. New episodes every week in November!
