One of Duck Dynasty's leading ladies, Korie Robertson, has recently become a New York Times bestselling author. Her book, Strong and Kind: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs To Succeed, was released October 27th to extremely positive reviews.
She recently sat down with Smashing Interviews Magazine to talk about her book, her family of five kids, and her faith.
Her eldest son, John Luke, got married over the summer and is now attending his first year of college with his wife, Mary Kate. Her daughter, Sadie, is often in the spotlight and even competed on Season 19 of Dancing With The Stars.
With filming of DTWS being in Los Angeles, California, Korie was asked if she ever worried about her daughter in such a big city at such a young age.
"We are very secure that she’s got a good head on her shoulders," she says. "But as a mom of a 17-year-old heading out there to do something on her own like Dancing with the Stars, there was some fear. There were some concerns like, 'Oh my goodness. Is this the right decision for her?' I really just had to put that away and know that God’s got her, that she is His child and that He is going to look out for her whatever comes her way."
Sadie is also in a long-term relationship with college freshman Blake Coward that is well-documented on her social media accounts.
Korie is certain that the youngsters have nothing but good intentions.
"We talk a lot to our kids and definitely made sure that her boyfriend has good intentions. But he’s a great guy, and we really love him. Willie and I were married at 18 and 19, so there’s not a whole lot we can say about them dating at a young age."
Sadie is currently in her senior year of high school, and has a bright life ahead of her. She is a savvy business woman and has a great head on her shoulders. Blake is a lucky guy!
