Christian "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines have announced they are embarking on a new adventure, opening a bakery shop in their hometown of Waco, Texas.
"From a young age I loved spending time in the kitchen with my family, and dreamed of owning my own bakery," Joanna announced back in January. "Coming in 2016, this dream will come alive at the Silos, and I can't wait to share it with you. The vision behind Magnolia Flour is that you feel my family's love for baking and experience an unexpected grouping of fresh baked pastries, breads and sweets. We will be open this Spring and can't wait for you to see it when you visit the silos!"
Joanna also shares a number of recipes on her personal blog, including no bake pumpkin cheesecake, homemade churros, and strawberry-lemonade ice cream pie, which will hopefully be available for purchase in the upcoming bakery.
In addition to opening an updated version of their home-good store, "Magnolia Market," the couple are preparing to launch a furniture line, open a bed and breakfast, and release their first book, "The Magnolia Story", as their empire continues to rapidly expand.
The duo's home-improvements show, "Fixer Upper," is also a hit: More than 8 million total viewers watched the show's season 3 premiere in February, making it one of the top five rated nights in HGTV history.
The couple is quick to credit their massive success to their Christian faith and dedication to putting God first in every area of their lives.
"Our family has made a commitment to put Christ first, a lifestyle our parents modeled for us very well. They showed us how to keep our marriage and family centered around God," Chip said during a recent interview with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
Joanna, who met her husband while attending Baylor University, echoed the sentiment last April during a video for the college in which she discussed her testimony and how she seeks to use her platform to share her faith.
"I can look back now on the pattern of my life and really believe God has a purpose for me, but He also has purpose for you," the mother-of-four said.
"Whether you're staying home and raising beautiful babies or you're the CEO of a multi-million dollar company, let God speak into your life," Joanna continued. "Let his father heart come and say, 'This is what I have for you.' I think that's the key - not believing the lies, fixing our eyes on Jesus, and walking in the truth.'"
