Joanna Gaines Shares How Anxiety and Insecurities Crept Into Her Life

When we look into the life of someone like Joanna Gaines, we see grit, grace, talent, beauty, and hard work. But that’s not always how she saw herself. Joanna Gaines shares how anxiety and insecurities crept into her life. 

Joanna is known for making a house feel like home. She’s built an empire of decor, remodeling houses, and all with her five kids and devoted husband by her side. We can’t help but adore the way Chip is always trying to get her to laugh and smile. From the outside looking in, their lives look dreamy and picturesque. 

She sits down with Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush to share why she wrote the book, “The Stories We Tell.” At six, she realized she looked different from everyone else because she was half-Korean. 

But she says she didn’t want to bring this burden on her mother, who is Korean. But after her 44th birthday, Joanna realized she was halfway through this life when she felt like her view was beginning to feel “fuzzy.” 

That’s when Joanna decided to channel herself as the six-year-old little girl with frizzy hair and a missing tooth. That little girl was “light-spirited,” carefree, and not defined by the world. She was a child of God and happy in her own skin. 

Isn’t that the truth? We are most comfortable in our own skin when we go back to the most precious definition of ourselves as children of God instead of carrying the world’s labels. What a remarkable interview and insight. I, for one, cannot wait to pick up Joanna’s new book and remind myself I am God’s daughter. 

“I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18.
