Sadie Robertson—former star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty and daughter of Willie and Korie Robertson—shares her outlook on life as she opens up about herself and the values that make her family what it is.

Sadie Robertson represents everything that a well-adjusted teenager should be, even while growing up in the spotlight on Duck Dynasty. She exhibits poise, respect for her family and friends, and a faith that influences her choices. Everyone wants to know how a family as eclectic as the Robertsons are raising such confident, fun, family-loving kids. With this book, Sadie sheds light on the values instilled by her family that make her the person she is.

Sadie lives by a simple list of principles that lead her to personal and spiritual growth and allow the relationships she has with her friends and family to flourish. These values include think happy, be happy; dream big; shake the hate; do something; and many more.

Living as a culturally relevant teen who loves God and her family, Sadie has become a role model for other teens and for parents who are eager to instill the same characteristics in their children.

About the Author

Sadie Robertson catapulted into stardom as a young teenager, starring in the hit reality series A&E’s Duck Dynasty, as well as landing first runner up on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars Season 19 at just 17 years of age. The now 20-year-old has expanded her platform as a motivational speaker and advocate for her generation. On a mission to empower her peers in the name of positivity, self-confidence, and a call to “live original,” Sadie designed and launched a 16-city motivational tour called the Live Original Tour in 2016. She recently announced her plans for Live Original Tour 2017 set for this fall. Sadie has also ventured into acting, appearing in God’s Not Dead 2, the 2016 film about Columbine shooting victim Rachel Joy Scott I’m Not Ashamed, as well as taking on a starring role in the Hallmark movie, Sun, Sand, & Romance.

Sadie embodies the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of the Robertson family and has carried her philosophy into multiple business ventures including her own phone app, SADIE, a prom dress line with Sherri Hill, school supplies for DaySpring, jewelry and home goods with Glory Haus, and a fashion line with Wild Blue Denim. She has also partnered with Roma Boots and worked alongside them in their mission to “give poverty the boot” and spends time every year traveling the world serving those in need with One Squad, a group of young people that Sadie created with Help One Now, that seeks to engage her generation in social justice by caring for children and orphans around the world.

A bestselling author, Sadie is currently working on the follow up to her New York Times bestselling book, Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values, which, along with her newest books, Life Just Got Real and Live Original Devotional are available at retailers nationwide.
