When Duck Dynasty premiered a few seasons ago, folks weren’t quite sure what to expect out of the bearded clan of rednecks. But now, you can easily confirm by visiting either Twitter or Facebook that the duck hunting, God loving, Robertson family has become one of America’s favorite television families. So, it really is no surprise that when the family chose to do the show, it wasn’t for fame or fortune!
Duck Dynasty has quickly grown to be A&E’s hottest show, and it has to do with the Robertson family and their old school Christian values. And if you’re one of the many fans who tunes in week after week, then you already know that the family has a close relationship with God, and according to Sadie Robertson, that is the reason they decided to do the show. The 16-year-old daughter of Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson, says the family’s main reason for doing the show was to spread the word of God, and not for fame and fortune.
“We could have easily done a reality show like everyone else… it’s our faith that catches people’s eyes because sadly, it’s not something we’re used to seeing on TV these days,” the young star told Fox News recently. Sadie went on to reveal that at least once a week someone will Tweet her and beg her not to turn into another Miley Cyrus. Luckily, Sadie has no intentions of going down that path (and we’re sure Willie and Korie would not allow it, either). Instead, Robertson went on to explain: “I think people use fame as an excuse to lose their faith. Faith is obviously my number one priority and I think you need to put God at the top of everything you do.”
Kudos to Sadie Robertson for setting such a great example for young girls.
