Sadie Robertson Shares How Faith Keeps Her Rooted in Her Identity

    Between facing peer pressure and deciding what to do with the rest of your life, there is a lot of uncertainty that comes along with being a teenager. This is especially true when you grow up in the public eye. But for Sadie Robertson, the pressures of fame actually helped her draw closer in her relationship with God.

    Sadie Robertson became a household name when she starred on her family’s show, Duck Dynasty at 14 years old. After Duck Dynasty, she was a runner up on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. Now at 23, Sadie is an author, speaker and podcaster with more than 3 million Instagram followers. She also founded Live Original, a community that aims to encourage young women through Bible studies, live events and more.

    Despite skyrocketing to fame at such a young age, Sadie has managed to stay grounded in life. She credits being able to stay focused and level-headed to having a personal relationship with Jesus.

    “Not that I didn’t struggle with insecurity and didn’t have my hard days,” she says. “But I felt like I always had just a grounding, you know, to not just completely lose it.”

    In a recent interview with Fox News, Sadie shared how her faith has helped her not only deal with the pressures of fame but also the current COVID-19 pandemic. With the future being so uncertain, she felt called to look for more intentional ways to help others.

    As a result, Robertson recently hosted a virtual concert called Unite to Fight Poverty for COVID-19 relief. The event featured artists and celebrities like T.D. Jakes and Hillsong United. This was just one of many ways she hopes to make a difference for those who are hurting during this time.

    She also wants to encourage others to do what they can for those who are hurting around them. “I’ve seen kids who are hungry and who are living in poverty and who can’t afford clothes, who can’t afford school, can’t afford water. So when you see that and you’re able to see the impact that your giving can make, you become an advocate for it,” she says.

    Another recent development in Sadie’s life? She recently got married to her boyfriend, Christian Huff.

    HUGE LOVE let me tell you girls. wait for the guy that you don’t have to stand up to, but that stands up for you. long story short, I was speaking the other night and sharing a story of a time a guy really hurt me. When I was sharing the story I started to cry because it was the first time i had ever shared this detail of what happened publicly. Then all of the sudden two guys in the room started to laugh as I was sharing the story. I called them out by saying – “you laugh, but it’s these kind of things that ruins a girl.” i quickly realized i wasn’t the only one who stood up for myself. This husband of mine took them outside, and no, did not hit them, but called them to be better men. He called them to maturity and to greatness. There are both types of guys and girls out there, and every guy and girl has the opportunity to mature and be better. Let’s not just bash people, but teach them. Let’s not just cancel people, but enlighten them. This man is a good one. He will be the first to tell you he used to be like those two guys, but Jesus called him to greater and He rose to the call. You can too.

    After tying the knot in November 2019, the pair moved to Sadie’s hometown in Louisiana to begin their life together. As they’ve learned to embrace marriage and living in a partnership, their time together during this pandemic has “really deepened our relationship,” she says.

    Sadie has a few words of encouragement for other girls who are walking through change or difficult times. “We have hope that God is still with us here, to give us strength, to give us joy, to give us peace, to make us feel loved in the midst of a time where the world is really throwing things at you.” And that’s a message that will always remain true, no matter what your age or relationship status.
