  • Fun Faith Fact!:  In an interview with Oprah, The HGTV stars described how God interacts with them individually and the impact that God's blessing has had on their lives.

Joanna Gaines is a loving wife, mom, HGTV reality star, interior designer, and most of all, she's a proud follower of Christ. Chip Gaines is a devoted husband, father, HGTV star, home renovator, and a strong follower of Jesus. The married couple owns an interior design and home renovation company in Waco, Texas.

The dynamic duo is most known for their HGTV show "Fixer Upper," a home renovation reality show about revamping old homes to new, fabulous creations. Not only are they known for their incredible design and building skills, but they are also recognized for their faith in God. In an interview with Oprah, The HGTV stars described how God interacts with them individually and the impact that God's blessing has had on their lives.

"I will say there probably been five pivotal moments in my life where I can say that was God's voice, that was Him, and I felt the sense of peace, almost like that moment where you get chills and you know there's something else," Joanna Gaines stated how she could distinguish the difference between her thoughts and God's voice. "That's something that since I was a little girl, I've experienced God in that real way, very relational," she affirmed.

The inspirational mother of five expressed that she distances herself from organized religion because she believes God's connection with His creation is very personal and unique to each person.

"With the idea of religion, I shy away from that, my relationship with God; it's like no one else's," Joanna proclaimed. "God is so creative that I can't impose what my beliefs are. He shows up in beautifully unique ways for all of us."

Chip Gaines also explained how God communicates with him, "God shows up for me in very practical real ways. As I work, that's how I meet with God," he expressed. "When I sweat, and when I'm lonely, I'm sad, I'm mad about something. I mean, when you chop firewood, or [on] demo day. You don't have to have any talent to be good at demolition. You just want to break stuff." Chip shared, "that those very childlike, very natural, very simple ways" are how God connects with him.
