Christian celebrities like Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus have strayed away from the way their parents taught them to go, but at least one rising star is bucking the immorality trend in her teenage years:Duck Dynasty‘s Sadie Robertson.
Sadie, daughter of Willie and Korie Robertson, is a breath of fresh air and she lets the breeze blow on the masses with her new book, Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps it Real and Stays True to Her Values. Sadie’s key message boils down to this: Christian values.
“Sadie Robertson represents everything that a well-adjusted teenager should be, even while growing up in the spotlight onDuck Dynasty,” the book marketing blurb reads. “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.”
In her book, Sadie outlines 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 and do something. But the big message teens and young adults everywhere—including backsliding celebrity Christians like Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry—need to hear is Sadie’s take on purity.
“People are like, ‘It must be easy for you because you’re Christian.’ That doesn’t make it any easier for me,” Sadie, who is also featured on Dancing with the Stars, told US magazine with regard to her 10-month relationship with boyfriend Blake Coward. “It’s something a couple really has to decide together.”
That’s a stark contrast from Miley Cyrus, who twerked her way into the headlines then proceeded to strip naked, straddle a wrecking ball and suggestively lick a sledgehammer in her video, “Wrecking Ball” last year. Katy Perry empowered the gay agenda with her song, “I Kissed a Girl.” And we’re all praying for Nicki Minaj, likely agreeing with her Christian mother that she will turn from immorality to live for Christ and Christ alone.
