Chip and Joanna Gaines of "Fixer Upper" Share Their Faith in a Powerful New "I Am Second" Video

"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 Gaines

(Waco, TX) — [The Gospel Herald] – In a powerful new "I Am Second" video, "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines shared how their relationship with one another mirrors Christ's love for His people - and how their faith drives everything they do, from their marriage to their hit home renovation show.

Chip added that Joanna's calm, steady personality and unfaltering faith allowed him to become the person God created him to be: "I think that's one of the reasons I love her like I do," he says. "She knows me in a way that has caused me to…"
