“Fixer Upper” star Joanna Gaines often has her hands full raising five children alongside her husband, Chip.

The design duo recently welcomed a son, Crew, and announced their upcoming return to television. Still, Joanna still finds special ways to bond with her little ones.

Earlier this month, the mom spent some bonding time with her youngest daughter, 8-year-old Emmie Kay. The two picked flowers and pressed them into an old book, Dearly reported.

She shared the sweet story and admitted she often felt “mom guilt” — something she called a “never ending cycle.”

Now, Joanna has shared another sweet story about her little Emmie Kay that’s warming fans’ hearts.

The mom wrote on Instagram that she went into her daughter’s bathroom to discover she’d drawn on the counter:

Walked into Emmie’s bathroom this morning and my heart stopped for a second when I thought she had sharpied all over her vanity.

Joanna was concerned until she got a good look at what Emmie Kay actually wrote. She said on Instagram:

And then I took a moment and really read what she wrote and thought, “Well that isn’t the worst thing to be permanent”. Then I touched it and realized it was erasable?.

Her little girl had written, “Hi God what are you doing?”

Joanna said the message made her come to a realization. She wrote:

I stared at her question and loved the thought of it and that that’s how she talks to God. May her faith always stay childlike and may I remember what she seems to already know. That God is the most relational and the most kind, and always near. ❤️

Thankfully, the scribbled message was erasable, and the “Fixer Upper” star said it taught her a sweet lesson about her daughter’s faith.

How would you react if your child did this? Let us know in the comments.
