An Inside Look at the Robertson Women
In the pages of this book, you'll find both fun and inspirational stories . . .
Kay shares the honest story of her relationship with Phil—and his wild and philandering years—and the challenges of being a teenage mother. Even more amazing, she shares the forgiveness she offered Phil and how they have now celebrated forty-eight years of marriage.
Korie tells of her first encounter with Phil when she was in just the fifth grade. At that first meeting Phil came right out and told her what good husbands his boys would make and that she should keep an eye on them. She also shares the reaction her parents had when she told them that she and Willie were getting married when she was only eighteen.
Missy tells the story of their daughter, Mia, who was born with a cleft palate, and their adjustments to this condition and Mia's joyful spirit that inspires them all.
Jessica recounts her first conversation with Jep and how unimpressed she was when Jep bragged that his dad was the Duck Commander Phil Robertson. She told him she'd heard of Daffy Duck, Donald Duck, and Duck, Duck, Goose— but not the Duck Commander.
Lisa reveals the serious marriage problems she and Al had—problems that almost ended their marriage for good—and how they worked through those issues to have a more stable and loving marriage than she ever imagined possible.

I remember lots of lazy summer days when the men in our family went fishing early in the mornings and the rest of us swam and soaked ourselves in the sun until they got back. When they returned, we all took the boat out again for an afternoon of water skiing, tubing, and knee-boarding. At night, we fried the morning’s catch for dinner and
not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” I can still hear her sweet voice reading those words today and they still bring me comfort when I think of them. Not long before I started writing this book, my mamaw passed away. At her funeral I heard stories I had never heard before about her helping people. I knew she had helped many, many people in many ways, but at her

I am thankful for the great opportunities we have been given because of the show. Sometimes we get to stay in really nice hotels and when that happens, I try as hard as I can to be friendly and to talk enthusiastically to everyone. I do not care if a person is a housekeeper, a maintenance worker, a concierge, or the owner of the whole hotel; I want to give everyone the

They are all typical kids, but respect is one of the core values of our family and they truly are respectful kids. 9. Korie, what’s your favorite episode of Duck Dynasty? Korie: This is a hard one because there are a lot of episodes I love, but I think my favorite is “Driving Miss Sadie.” It’s fun to see what happens when I’m not around, like
