She’s one of America’s most admired and respected reality stars, but Joanna Gaines is never one to hog the spotlight. So for her 39th birthday on Wednesday, her husband made sure that she was well celebrated. And it’s easily the most adorable thing you’ll see all day!
With a world-renown television show, furniture line, remodeling company, famous store-front, and picture-perfect family; Joanna is quite the remarkable woman. Born April 19th, 1978, it’s safe to say that Joanna has done more in just 39 years than most dream to accomplish in a lifetime.
Joanna Gaines lives to give instead of receive as she remains focused on uplifting and inspiring others. At heart, she’s still the same a small-town girl who grew up working in her father’s tire store. And despite her undeniable success today, Joanna has never been one to self-promote.
Whether it’s a selfie with her camera-man, a word of encouragement, or a peek into “real life” in the Gaines home, Joanna’s life oozes with gratitude, generosity, and humility.
Unlike other celebrities of our day, Joanna’s Instagram account isn’t flooded with vain selfies or humble-brags. Instead, you’ll find that she’s prone to invite others into the spotlight.
Her posts frequently give all glory to God, honor her husband, celebrate her family, and thank her team.
But when Joanna’s birthday came around this year, her family, friends, and employees were quick to make sure the world knew just how genuinely amazing she is.
Chip didn’t hold back and took to social media to publicly praise his beautiful wife on her 39th birthday.
Chip wrote on Instagram, “Jo, you are the best at everything you do. Watching you do your thing is one of my greatest joys. You are fascinating in every way, and like the rest of the world… I can’t wait to see what’s next. Happy birthday, young lady! -me”
The Magnolia team was quick to chime in and also wished the “best boss around” a happy birthday.
Chip’s very public and unashamed wifey-brag isn’t unusual for the famous “Fixer Upper” stars who are currently filming season 5.
Although the couple admits their marriage is far from perfect, their relationship paints a picture of what a Christ-centered marriage looks like.
Last year, the dynamic duo recorded a video for “I Am Second” about how they make their marriage work at home and in business. While Joanna didn’t exactly call Chip a perfect person, she explained why he’s perfect for her.
Joanna revealed, “If I didn’t have Chip Gaines in my life, I’d still be dreaming in my head. But not acting out on any of that, not living it out.”
I’m so very grateful that young girls across our country have a new kind of role model to look up to. The life of Joanna Gaines life paints a beautiful picture of a life devoted to Christ and a true Proverbs 31 woman.
“A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds. Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it. Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long. She’s quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor. When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say, and she always says it kindly. She keeps an eye on everyone in her household, and keeps them all busy and productive. Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise: ‘Many women have done wonderful things, but you’ve outclassed them all!’ Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.” Proverbs 31
Happy Birthday Joanna Gaines; today we celebrate you! Thank you for being the kind of woman who is truly worth admiring in every way. America needs more women like Joanna Gaines! Please share if you agree.
