Joanna Gaines Quotes

  • "Don't quit, and don't give up. The reward is just around the corner. And in times of doubt or times of joy, listen for that still, small voice. Know that God has been there from the beginning—and he will be there until the end."

  • "Even locked doors can be unlocked in time."

  • "It's hard to describe the feeling that comes with starting your own business. It really is so much work in the beginning that you lose yourself in it. You lose your sense of time, and you can't believe how quickly the days go by because there's no time to focus on much of anything else. But then you open the doors, and it's like you've given birth to this new thing that didn't exist before. Then when it starts to flourish, well, that's just icing on the cake. To get to see it live and breathe and to know that this thing you created out of thin air can put a smile on other people's faces is such a blessing."

  • "It is no easy thing to trust in God, to walk away from a career, to give it all up not knowing if you can ever get it back or even come close. But I did it. I heeded his voice, and somehow I found peace about it."

  • "There's something about doing things the way our ancestors used to do them that kind of puts your heart back into the rhythm of this thing called life."

  • "If you can't find happiness in the ugliness, you're not going to find it in the beauty, either."

Inspiring Joanna Gaines Quotes

  • "Go and find what it is that inspire you, go and find what it is that you love, and go do that until it hurts."

  • "I had to learn that this whole God thing isn't just this big religion. It's really that He wants this relationship with us on a personal level."

  • "I finally believed it was actually a beautiful thing to be unique and to be different."

  • "It's up to us to choose contentment and thankfulness now—and to stop imagining that we have to have everything perfect before we'll be happy."

  • "I always thought that the "thriving" would come when everything was perfect, and what I learned is that it's actually down in the mess that things get good."

  • "Well, I'm mad, but I'm not primer-in-the-face mad."

  • "One pretty amazing thing we learned early on was that the more time we spent together, the better our relationship was."

  • "By the time Chip and I met, he'd managed to combine these two conflicting sides of himself: the kid who steered clear of trouble and did the right thing, and the kid who rode his Big Wheel full speed into the street without looking both ways. I had never met anyone like him. It's funny to me to think that the whole opposites-attract thing might have been programmed into my DNA. Just as my outgoing mother was drawn to my quiet dad, I was this shy girl drawn to the super-outgoing Chip Gaines. And the fact that he owned a successful lawn and irrigation business and had made up his mind that he loved Waco and wanted to stay put was somehow a perfect fit with everything I knew I wanted myself."

Quotes from Joanna Gaines

  • "I think when people have the freedom to tell their own story rather than trying to be specific to a certain design or style, there's more freedom, and it ends up feeling more like home. Those spaces we see in magazines and on the Internet are beautiful, but if there's not that story there, then it's going to lack that feeling of home."

  • "If I hadn't married Chip, I might not have ever bloomed."

  • "Life isn't found on the pages of a magazine. Life is found in the glass of spilled milk and in the long, narrow hallway filled with socks and soccer balls."

  • "That rotten houseboat turned out to be a blessing in disguise."

  • "It was such a blessing to find myself thriving in the middle of the pain. Unless you find a way to do that, there's always going to be this fake illusion that once you get there--wherever "there" is for you--you'll be happy. But that's just not life. If you can't find happiness in the ugliness, you're not going to find it in beauty, either."

  • "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."

  • "Marriage requires effort and time and talking and connecting. You have to maintain it."

  • "Texans know how to make people feel welcome."
