Book Review: Capital Gaines by Chip Gaines

This is Chip Gaines' story of how what he has gone through has brought him to some successes in his life. He kind of had a dream of where he wanted to be in his younger days but his life took a different course and he explains how these early beginnings trained him and helped to pave a course to the successes that have happened in his life since then. He talks about his family, his family businesses, and the Fixer Upper TV show he and wife Joanna have starred in and how these all came to be, and most importantly, he talks about God's help with successes that have happened in his life.

My parents have the Fixer Upper TV show playing a lot in our home because they are really into home repairs, which made me interested in reading this book and learning how that TV show came to be with the Gaines' starring in it.

In some ways I feel like Chip was trying to show how small beginnings brought him to bigger places in his life but in others I feel like he went through kind of some big beginnings that brought him to even bigger places and dreams in he and his wife's life. It's amazing that the bigger things seemed to start happening after he married his wife Joanna, like she was a needed partner to have more of God's will unfold from his life.

At first I was kind of shocked to read that Chip likes people to figure out things on their own that he leads in his company, but then I became grateful that he gives people some tidbits to start with so they are not left completely in the dark and that he takes the credit when people mess up with things that they didn't already know.

I think my favorite part of the book was when Chip's eyes were opened about something important that someone I don't think he knew did in his life to help him understand when a door needed to close. I was also happy to learn that Chip has a heart for helping homeless people, and that he cares deeply for his family, his employees, his customers, and even strangers that are sent into his life.

My review= 5 out of 5 stars
