Over the last few months, Duck Dynasty teen Sadie Robertson has made a point of using her fame to spread the word of God and show young people what a good Christian woman is like. She did this once again during a new interview this week.
“There aren’t that many positive role models in the world today — for Christians at least,” Robertson said during a podcast interview with “The Church Boys. “It’s easy to get lost in a crazy world whenever everyone else is doing crazy things … I try to really watch what I do, watch what I say, watch how I act.”
When Sadie was asked about her time on Dancing With The Stars, where she made it all the way to second place, she revealed the surprising reason she appeared on the show in the first place.
“At first I said, ‘No… I’m not doing that. It’s so scary. I’m not going to dance in front of millions of people. I don’t know how to dance,’” Sadie said, according to Conservative Tribune. However, after thinking about it some more, Sadie realized all of the good that could come from her appearing on the show. She finally said yes in the hopes that her Christian values could be a “testament to a lot of people.”
Now, Sadie is intent on teaching young girls to respect themselves and their bodies, despite the fact that we live in a society that sexualizes them at a young age.
“I think that … a lot of girls — they’ll do anything to get a guy … when actually the guys that are worth (it) are the guys that want you to respect yourself,” she said. ”The world has … put this pressure on teenage girls to show everything and to go out there and do anything, and that’s not how it should be, and that’s not how it’s supposed to be — and that’s not what you need to get a guy worth dating.”
“I really prayed about it a lot and I looked into it … (I thought) ‘I need to stop being so down on myself,’” Sadie added. “I didn’t need to find confidence in myself. I needed to find the confidence in my trust in God, and that’s what kind of turned it around for me.”
Sadie has received a lot of flack from liberals who are sick of her talking about Jesus. We, however, applaud her for remaining grounded despite becoming a celebrity at such a young age. Keep up the good work, Sadie!
