Growing up in the public eye is not an easy thing to do. The Robertson children have proved that you can still grow up into good human beings while being in front of the camera.
Duck Dynasty has been on the air since 2012 and we’ve gotten to know each family member very well throughout the years and through their books.
Now, it’s time we get to know John Luke and his wife, Mary Kate, a bit better. As many fans know, John Luke is the eldest son of Korie and Willie Robertson. He married Mary Kate in a beautiful ceremony last summer.
The two attend Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and just finished up their Freshman year.
About a month ago, Robertson revealed that he had written a book, Young & Beardless: The Search For God, Purpose, And A Meaningful Life.
According to Amazon, the book allows him to “share his story of what it’s like to grow up as a Robertson and all the fun and craziness that entails, as well as what he has learned as he has stepped out into his own unique experiences“.
Robertson and his wife sat down Wednesday (May 18) morning with Fox & Friends to discuss the book and the inspiration behind it.
“When I was 14 I had a mentor who told me to write everything down,” he said. “Everything I hear, everything I think, as much as I can. Write it down and then put it in a box and then later you can get it back and look and that’s how you can remind yourself of what you’ve learned. And so I did that for the last six years. ‘Young and Beardless’ is a culmination of writing down everything that ever impacted me. [I] put it all together in a book.”
Getting married young had a huge part in his writing the book. He writes what he was looking for in a spouse: “faith in God and faith in herself”. He found that in Mary Kate and now, they’ve been married almost a year!
John Luke’s grandfather sent a video message to John Luke to wish him well for his Fox appearance. Or so he thought.
“Don’t be a nerd on National TV,” Phil said.
