There’s nothing more majestic than visiting the White House, the People’s House! For new author, Giovanna McBride, that magical experience happened very early in her childhood.

In her new book, Gigi at the White House, McBride shares the beautiful story of how she formed a bond with former First Lady Laura Bush, thanks to a wonderful role model: her mother! Anita McBride worked side-by-side with Mrs. Bush for many years as her chief of staff during George H.W. Bush’s presidency and “Gigi” recounts the many times she got to visit her mother’s awe-inspiring place of work, including the time she got to have a sleepover at the White House and breakfast with the First Lady!

Watch the video below to hear more memories from Gigi’s new book in the Glow Stream TV author spotlight.

Giovanna’s new book, Gigi at the White House is available for purchase online at

log post, it’s still so surreal. There is absolutely nothing I’ve done to deserve to be here. Yet here I am! We’re here because of His grace, despite our actions, to bring Him glory.
