Starring on a reality show may not seem like the most wholesome way to raise your children, but Duck Dynasty star Jessica Robertson is positive that her kids are growing up with God.
Recently, Jessica spoke out on the importance of raising your children with the bible.
“Jesus is doing so much in their lives, and for them to do that — it’s not an easy thing to do. You’re giving away a huge portion of your time and your life,” she said, according to The Blaze. “You have to know it’s not just a 9-to-5 job. It is somewhat of a sacrifice, but God has a plan and he has something bigger.”
Jessica and her husband Jep work hard to make sure their children study Christian scriptures and internalize them as well. They also put their kids “around other Christian people” and inject bible verses into their daily lives.
“We have scriptures up all over the house. The fruit of the Spirit is up in our living room, and we try to talk about that almost daily. We’ll draw names and that week we’ll work on one fruit of the Spirit,”she said. “The little ones, if they catch their sister acting not kind or going against what they’re supposed to be working on, they’ll call them out. It’s pretty funny, they’ll be like, “Uh, you’re being ugly! You’ve gotta be kind!” or “You’ve gotta be joyous! Stop being negative!”
Despite the trashy nature of most reality shows, Jessica hopes that other shows will take on the Christian tone that Duck Dynasty has.
“The more Christian shows out there, the more good influence we have, the better,” she concluded.
