Joanna Gaines Shares Heartfelt Message About Seasons of Life: “You Are Made Ready”


If there’s anyone that knows about the everchanging seasons of life, it’s Chip and Joanna Gaines. The couple went from a young married couple with a small family to some of America’s favorite stars with five gorgeous kids.

Since leaving their HGTV show “Fixer Upper,” Chip and Joanna have been focusing on their Magnolia brand, putting out new products for their Target line and managing life as a family of seven.

In light of the Fall issue of Joanna’s Magnolia Journal, she took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message about the seasons of life, encouraging her followers to believe they can handle anything life throws their way.

“I believe that we’re all made ready. Whatever season you’re in, whatever life may throw at you, whether it feels like success or like failure, expected or unexpected, you are made ready. Made ready to learn, to celebrate, to endure. To handle all of the things that get thrown your way in every season and to know yourself and take stock of your resources—of all the beautiful things you’re already made of.” 

According to the Magnolia website, the Fall journal will include recipes, stories, tips and an inside look at baby Crew’s nursery.

Me + Crew + Cookie = ❤️
