The Magnolia Story by Joanna Gaines – This is also on my list of books I can’t wait to read!! The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering their fans a detailed look at their life together.

She Reads Truth: Holding Tight to Permanent in a World That’s Passing Away by Amanda Bible Williams and Raechel Myers She Reads Truth tells the stories of two women who discovered, through very different lives and circumstances, that only God and His Word remain unchanged as the world around them shifted and slipped away. Infused with biblical application and Scripture, this book is not just about two characters in two stories, but about one Hero and one Story. Every image points to the bigger picture—that God and His Word are true. Not because of anything we do, but because of who He is. Not once, not occasionally, but right now and all the time.
