HGTV’s Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines was reminded of the importance of childlike faith, from a unique moment shared with her daughter.

The Christian mother of five took to Instagram on Sunday to share the encounter. Gaines posted a photo of her daughter Emmie’s vanity. She noticed something was written on it. But before she could get angry at the eight-year-old, she looked a little closer.

Drawn on with purple marker, her daughter had wrote, “Hi God what are you doing?”

In the Instagram post, Gaines stated: “I stared at her question and loved the thought of it and that that’s how she talks to God. May her faith always stay childlike and may I remember what she seems to already know. That God is the most relational and the most kind, and always near.”

Gaines had witnessed a piece of an intimate conversation between her daughter and God. Nearly 1.5 million people responded to the photo on Instagram alone. But more so, it seems the photo made a powerful impression on all those who saw it.

One user commented on the picture saying, “Thank you, Emmie, for the wonderful lesson to all of us. God is always at our shoulder waiting for us.”

Another user wrote, “Amen!! God Bless little Emmie…. We all could learn from her childlike Faith.. Thank You for sharing this!. God Bless your family,”

Gaines and her husband Chip have always been open about their Christian faith. They inspire many Christian families across America through their social media channels and television shows.
