Sadie Robertson: I would have never thought of before. I wouldn’t have even thought of that, I would have written a book. I had a hard time reading books in the school. So, no, no. No way, I don’t think that. It’s never going to get old, and it’s a really wild one.
Fox News: Where do you draw your inspiration for the titles to write.
Robertson: It’s normal, and to be honest, what I’m going to move to the right at the time. You know, when I wrote, “Live Original,” and I was a sophomore in high school, dealing with the, how shall I be sure, you know, everyone is saying to you in order to be sure of who you are, and you are looking around for someone else, and you’re like, ‘How do I do that?”

And yes, it was a little bit of my journey to find that confidence that I was, originally, that God created me to be. And then, in the next book, I went through the whole, like, fear of failure, of time. I don’t know how to be “Fearless” or to write about it. And, to be honest with you, these books have been really healing for me because it enabled me to learn how to deal with the issue as well, I’m going through at the present time, by faith, by scripture, by God, and then to write about them, because I know that other people can probably relate to.
And, it is what it is ‘Live.’ And yes, it’s usually right where I am at that moment in time I’m going through. I always say, if there’s something I want to have one of my books, like a sister, and a friend to a person who is in need of a sister, and a friend of his. So that’s why I’m trying to do in my writing. I’m not trying to be the deepest thoughts ever. It’s not like, ‘Wow, I’ve never heard that before.’ It’s just a reminder of, ” Hey, you, someone likes you, someone tells you that you can rely on and trust in who God is, and is your creative goal, and that is at the heart of all of the books, and inspiration.

Fox News: looking back on the sermon that you gave on the Passion, by 2020, what the hell was that feeling of having your ear up to 60,000 people?
Robertson: Yeah. I take a deep breath, even just to think about it, that feeling, to know that the Passion is there are about 65,000 people in the room. But then again, you don’t even have to account for how many people are watching online, and how many people will watch it online. And so, you know that you are in the world, in your ear, and you’re about to say something, and you’ll have 30 minutes to say whatever you want to say that it’s going to be heard by so many people.
More than 65,000 students participated in the Passion to the year 2020.

And, I think, which is probably not a lot of people would like to think that’s going to be that, it is just the weight that you carry when you know that there are a lot of people are listening to it. And, I don’t want to go up there and say something for like 30 minutes, it doesn’t matter. I don’t want to go up there and just say, every half hour. I don’t want to go over there and say something that would pump me up, hype me up. I would like to say that it’s going to run into these people, and how they are going to be the creation of an effect, since I’ve been on the receiving end, when I am in a passion, the situation, and speak a word that changed the course of my life. Well, as a kind of knowing that I had a chance to do, and the Bible talks about how the tongue is in the possession of the power of life and death, and I take that very seriously. I have had the opportunity to speak of something that is going to activate the life of someone else.
And yes, I do take it very seriously. I’ve literally been thinking about what I’m about to say, for a year, prayed about it every day. My husband and I prayed about it. I mean, if talked about it all the time. After all, what is referred to as a second, probably thinking about it for hours, and prayed about it for hours, because when you have 30 minutes so as to have an impact, you need to make sure that those words are really coming from.

Fox News: Public speaking seems to come so easily to you. If you knew that you wanted to spread the word of God.
Robertson: So good! To be honest, I used to preach when I was, like, 5 years old. I didn’t really know it at the time, but my mom has videos of me, including getting up on our kitchen table, and if the preach from my parents, and that’s, like, “It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, God loves you,” and I’m like five years old. And, I also have a bit of fun, and I’d say, ‘Let’s give it up for God.” So, my talk has changed a little bit due to the method of and in the course of the year, but to be honest, I have come to the high school, and I didn’t think I was going to speak. I was afraid of everything. I was afraid to speak in class. When someone called out, popcorn-style, I would shake, because I kind of had a reading problem.
Life: Live it, to Live it in a certain period of Time, an Exciting or Fulfilling Life, ” by Sandy Robertson.
And so, it was just too hard for me, and I was afraid to speak out loud. I was really worried that I was going to have to get it wrong, or what have you, so I don’t think I’m going to do it to, ‘Duck Dynasty’, and ‘Dancing with the Stars” is done, and I’ve sort of hit a crossroad where I’m like, ‘What am I going to do with my life?” I’m going to go to college, and I’m going to have to go into the entertainment industry?” Because that’s where all the doors were open, but none of them is a type of what seemed to be the right answer.
And so, in the meantime, a kind of prayer about what I was going to do it, so I went to the camp, and the camp, and this woman came up and spoke. She gave a message, and the whole time she was talking, I was so touched by it. And I was like, you know what? I’m going to have to do that, because I look up to her and talk, and every word that she said something to me, and it makes a difference in my life…. And, I thought, I’ve got a lot of people to listen to me. I’ve had a lot of people are looking at me right now, and I want to have that kind of effect, that is, if I have something to say, it is very important, and, like, actually be in someone else’s life.
And so, through that, the book came out, the talk went, the tours came in. So, I guess I always have been, ever since I was a young kid, and a possibility to communicate with people about the lord Jesus, as I have been with the love of the Lord, and that it will come out. But I don’t think getting older and realizing that I could go on in this way or that way. I want to go this way, because I know that I know that God is truly in this, and I know that when I speak of the things of his word, which is the power it has on people’s lives.
Fox News: What will readers take away from this book is how to deal with social media hate?
Sadie Robertson to be seen in a press photo for her new book, ” Life.”
Robertson: Yes, I do think that the “Hater” Strategy ” is a big one. You know, a lot of people always ask me, ” How do you deal with the hate?” And, you know, I think she’s asking me that, because they can see that I have a raised platform. And yes, he does hate it, but I do think that people also have to ask that, for anyone who is going through hate, and everyone has a hater.
Everyone has someone who is just plain nasty and say nasty things to you while you are trying to do something great. And so, you know, I just felt like this was one of the more important things in the book. Here it is, a hate strategy, and it actually comes from a story in the Bible is that you are likely to never ever would have thought that a hater is. But, hey, that already have thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of years. It is not a new thing, so let’s learn from those who have experienced it.

You know, for me, I always have to talk about it, if you want to know who your people are. On Instagram, who is not of your people. People are people, and you want to get the value to use for the people who they are. However, they are not your employees, therefore, do not allow them to speak into your life and let them hold value to you in your life. You will have the people speaking, that life inside of you. And so, that’s what I’m going through with the hate thing. But it, too, which I wrote about in the book. I think the other things in the book, and I hope that people will really understand it, it is simply the idea that, ‘Hey, there’s a way of life-and-death. If you go this route. This is what you’re going to have to deal with. If you do go this route, it is what it is going to flow from that hour.”
Fox News: Was it difficult to write your first book or perform it on Dancing with the Stars?’

Robertson: That’s a good question. OK. I would say it’s different because it’s writing a book, and then you’ve got the time, and it’s, like, in private. OK. It is very difficult to do that. It is one of the most challenging things ever, because it will force you to be in as a super-sensitive manner, and allows you to walk through it all with what you’re writing, so that it can be difficult. But, ‘Dancing with the Stars,” it’s in the community, both live and on camera to millions of people watching you. Two different types of pressure.
Fox News: What have you learned about yourself since becoming a wife.
‘DUCK DYNASTY’ STAR SADIE ROBERTSON’S, CHRISTIAN, HUFF,, SHARE HOLIDAY PHOTOS: “GOD FILTER”
Robertson: Well, I’ve learned a lot already in the marriage. It’s funny, I’ve got you, good luck. I am married to a Christian, of Niceville, Fla. So, for the Christian, of Mine. I’m married to a really great guy. [It’s] not just his name and where he is – he’s amazing and he’s taught me a lot about life. I think that’s the one thing that marriage has taught me, and I was telling someone this the other day, and I think it teaches you a lot about the love of God, because I believe that for the Christian, and that I have ever met, I was so hard on myself, and I had a lot of self-doubt.
“I think it [the marriage], you will learn a lot about the love of God, because I believe that for the Christian, and that I have ever met, I was so hard on myself, and I had a lot of self-doubt.”
— Sandy Robertson
And a lot of that came from me, as if God would be pleased with me. I was wondering if I was doing the right thing. I was wondering if I have gone too far this time. Of all the things, it’s hard to be yourself, and you have to put the condemnation on yourself, but God’s love is so extravagant, but that’s not what God has for you, but that is how you see yourself. And, in return, can you kind of explain that relationship to you and your faith.
When I met Christian, his love is so sweet and so kind and so forgiving, that when I am hard on myself, and I could see the grace and love that he spread to me and is like, ” wow, that’s real love, and it’s a really powerful thing. And, I could see myself really moving away from self-doubt and to walk in true faith, as to the manner in which he confirms it to me, and I will take a look at that relationship and think about love, and that to me is Christian, that is, it is the human condition. And then I think about what God’s perfect love? Wow, that is amazing.
Fox News: What’s a typical day like for you and your husband a Christian?
Robertson: Well, every day is a little different, to be honest. People are like, ‘Where do you live?’ And, I think, and I don’t even know it, because home is where my husband is, so home is everywhere. Yes, it’s crazy. I think that when we get home, we are going to have a chill-out day, put it in a scenario, which is a perfect chill day. We would wake up we would turn to the worship of god, on our TV’s. We would be hanging out with our little dog, however, if you. We were going to play tennis, at least for a long period of time. We would like to create a smoothie – like, and we love to chill when we chill. But tennis is our go-to activity. This is likely to be good for your mental health, too. But hey, if it’s not a chill-out day, we are out there on the road, traveling to various places.
‘DUCK DYNASTY’ STAR SADIE ROBERTSON UNVEILS NEW PUPPY TO THE WORLD, “”SHE’S ALL RIGHT’
Fox News: What do you want to achieve in the marriage and the life that is in front of you, would be all wrapped up in a bow?
Robertson: That is right. To be honest, I think I’m at my parents this, because my whole message was, ‘Live Original’ on the right. But, that’s all the news from my father nicknaming me ‘The Original’ and my mom really loved us in such a way that they wanted it to, each and every one of her children to be very independent, and like to go out and do what they were called to do.
She has never loved us… she loves us, but it was never like, ‘Oh, you can’t go on. I don’t want you to go.’ She was like, ‘that’s what God is calling you to? Go.” Or, before I knew it, she had to be like, ‘this is what God is calling you to, and you’re gonna go.’

And, I really appreciate that, and I think that, for a Christian, and I, and our children, and I just want to make sure that we are able to value them as an individual as aboriginal people, but they are all the same. Because I think that’s when you know that you are individually loved, then you can do this with a lot of nice things, be confident in knowing, ” Man, this is who I’m supposed to be, and this is something that is very, very tender.
Fox News: Why do you think that the people using it as well to your family on ‘Duck Dynasty?’
Robertson: I think it’s just the family. It’s just a family and love each other, and I think that’s the point of it is that we are not trying to create drama that wasn’t there. In our drama, and if there is, it was just like in the real world, things that you have in your family. However, at the end of the day, each and every time, we were holding hands, and praying, and I think people want to see [it].

So, you know, the TV world will tell you that the people want to see drama, they want to see, talk, them, this, and this and that. But, do people really want to see a family come together as a team, and they want to be in love, and they want to have the joy to see, and they want to see people who are happy, because we want to be happy, and we want our families to be together, and we want peace, we want joy.
And so, I think that’s what it was. It is what all desire, and, if there is one place on the screen for us to be able to be in it, and that is a blessing. However, I think that people just need to feel refreshed.
