Raise your hand if you're a Duck Dynasty fan! Me, me, me! ::Jumping up and down, waving hands wildly:::
I watched Duck Dynasty on A&E on February 24th for the first time, thanks to my hubby's channel surfing. I wasn't actually watching the show, but probably playing Candy Crush on my iPad, when I heard some VERY funny things being said. My interest was piqued, and I looked up to see what he was watching. I continue to crack up for the remainder of the show . . . and I was hooked! Thankfully, they were running several episodes in a row, so we watched some more. Come to find out, they're a Christian family, that incorporates their faith into their show. No words are being bleeped out, and it's a great show that the entire family can watch together. Amazing! Sign me up for more of this, I say! :D
Over the past few weeks, I've gotten to know the Robertson family even more, by reading their book, The Duck Commander Family. It's a great book, by the way! I highly recommend it if you're a fan of the show (or even if you haven't watched it yet)!
In addition, I stumbled across this LifeWay Christian video on my Facebook newsfeed, and I must say, I'm loving this family more everyday! Their show has more than 4 million fans on facebook, and it just appears to be growing daily. I don't know about you, but I think this is HUGE. I'm so happy to see that this family is using their platform to bring glory to God, and that they appear to be staying grounded. I just can't help but think, how many will be lead to Christ through this family and the example they set? They have a huge platform, and a tremendous influence for Christ. I pray they continue to use it well.
The patriarch of the family, Phil Robertson, has a book coming out on May 7, 2013, titled Happy, Happy, Happy. Here's a little bit about the book . . .
In Happy, Happy, Happy: My Life and Legacy as the DUCK COMMANDER, author Phil Robertson, the founder of Duck Commander, shares his inspiring stories of creating the first duck call, beginning the Duck Commander business, becoming a Christian, and living his faith.
