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.
