Are you ready to see your fixer-upper? These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like: Who are these people? What's the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life?

I love this amazing, sweet couple even more after listening to this book. What a gift they have given their community and really the whole country by showing what a difference hard work, passion, commitment, love and dedication to God can make.

"Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated." With her grandmother's taunt, Louise knew that she, like the biblical Esau, was the despised elder twin. Caroline, her selfish younger sister, was the one everyone loved. Growing up on a tiny Chesapeake Bay island in the early 1940s, angry Louise reveals how Caroline robbed her of everything: her hopes for schooling, her friends, her mother, even her name. While everyone pampered Caroline, Wheeze (her sister's name for her) began to learn the ways of the watermen and the secrets of the island.

What made the experience of listening to Get Off Your 'But' the most enjoyable?

I loved listening to this self-help book read by the author. I was able to capture much more emotion and insight into the concepts he sets forward by listening to him read it the book in his own words.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

The author's drive to see the good in his own life and not compare it to others.
