Publisher's Summary

From Ben and Erin Napier, the stars of the hit HGTV show Home Town, comes Make Something Good Today, a memoir that tells us all to seek out the good in life, celebrate the beauty of family and friends, and prosper within our communities because everything we need in life to be happy is within our grasp. 

Long before their hugely popular TV show, an expanding family, or demolition day on their dream home, Erin began keeping a daily Online journal to help her stay focused on the positive and count her blessings in life. She never expected that her depictions of small-town life in the tiny swath of Mississippi where she Ben call home would catch the eye of a television producer and set them off on the journey of a lifetime. 

Make Something Good Today offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the struggles and triumphs of a couple that America has come to know and love for their easy humor, adoring relationship, and ability to utterly transform a place into something beautiful and personal. This is the poignant story of how Erin and Ben took a small, tight-knit town into their own hands (literally) and used ingenuity, community, and authenticity to rebuild a once-thriving American Main Street. And how, by combining Ben’s carpentry skills with Erin’s design eye, Home Town is making it clear to us all that small-town living can feel as big as you make it. 

Complete with family photographs, Erin’s hand-painted sketches, and never-before-heard personal stories, this inspirational memoir reminds us all not to give up hope that great love stories are possible, big things can bloom in small towns, and there is always magic in the ordinary if you know where to look for it.

It was fabulously done and had it been narrated by anyone else it would not have been the same. God bless you all!

A must read for everyone who wants to see the good in life

With two kids under 4, I’m not very good at finishing books these days. But this is one I could not stop listening to. I listened in my car, while I rested beside my sleeping toddler, and while I nursed my baby. It opened my eyes and gave me a new zest for life. It encouraged me to be intentional in finding the good every single day and to document it as often as possible. I’m so grateful to have stumbled upon it! Thank you to the authors for taking the time to encourage the readers by sharing your life with us.

A Story For Everyone

As I listened to the story of Ben and Erin I realized this is my story too. With differences and similarities we can all say that we can make something good today. The struggles may be different than yours but in the end this is the story that resonates in your heart that it will all turn out good in the end.

Made my day something good!

This story is so sweet and so real. I had already loved Erin and Ben but I love them even more. Their narration makes you feel like they are sharing a part of their lives with you not seen on TV. This audio book is a MUST listen, it made me laugh, smile and shed a few tears ❤️
I already know that I will listen to their sweet story many times to come.

So inspiring!

This was so intriguing and fun to read. I would encourage any young person to read about what's possible when you just go after your dreams in little steps at a time.

Enchanting

What a magical and beautiful love story!! I adored every minute of the book, and the fact that Erin and Ben narrated it made it even more special. I am a MS native myself, and have family in Laurel. Erin and Ben really share what a true picture of southern charm, hard work, and small town family and in Erin's words "framily" is all about. I love what they are doing in Laurel, MS. @laurelmercantile
