A Dynasty Built on Family and Faith

Duck Dynasty’s Korie Robertson might not be much of a cook, but she knows the recipe for keeping America’s favorite reality-TV family together.

Duck Commander had never sold a duck call to Japan before, but somehow at the time when Phil and Kay needed it, the Lord provided.

As Willie says, having faith that the Lord will provide is the only way you can ever be successful in this world. It gives you the courage to take risks.

You have to be willing to fail while working your tail off to succeed. You have to believe in what you’re doing and keep your faith in who you are. That’s the reality behind our reality-TV show.

I thoroughly enjoyed this article by Korie. Thank you for making it available to us. Lots of wisdom shared!

I really enjoyed the article about Duck Dynasty, it's the only "Reality Show" we watch. Thanks for the background which will only make the watching that much better.

Thank God, there are still families like the Robertson's. I have been 'down in the dumps' with our government but this family has helped me realize grassroot Americans can inspire real change in this government.

Yes with the way tv has changed since I used to watch from little house on the prairie and Walton's to the trash on tv now. Your show gives me hope there are still people that realize what a family show should be like and the fact it is so popular tells me our culture must not be completely lost in filth. Love the end when you pray in the name of Christ it is about time someone brought to realty tv and tv in general I hope you continue with amazing success and happiness god bless you all by the way writing from my deer stand right now. Angola, In.

My family and I love the show. We never miss an episode!!! Please continue to be an inspiration to do many people. Great show!!!!

What a great show, but getting to phony, sound like Si?

I started watching your family's show last year out of curiosity. I am also from Louisiana and proud of the hard work ethic demonstrated by the Louisiana people. Duck Dynasty is such a refreshing change from the other reality shows of families. I especially enjoy the way the members can laugh at themselves. The love and enjoyment of each person toward the others is a treat to see. I am so glad and proud of the show's success. Thank all of you for taking this challenge. I wish you many years of success.

Your show brings back so many memories! I lived in West Monroe, LA (Slack St.) back when I was in grade school. (Millsap Elementary) Went to the old WFR CofC and my dad attended the School of Preaching there. (Back in the days of Bill Smith, Bill Johnson, Carl Allison) I went many a year to Camp Ch Yo Ca....oh what memories even at 52 years of age. Love your show and agree it is so nice to see a funny show with no cursing or unsuitable content!

More tv shows should be like this. If there were more examples of a God centered home in the media America would be a better place.

Great and inspiring things to live by! I just love the example of what a film should be and how we should all act forgive and love as Christians! Thank you Duck Dynasty and may God continue to bless you greatly!

What an inspirational story about the Duck Dynasty family. It was a joy to read and even though I have never tuned in to "Duck Dynasty" before - I WILL NOW!!! Looking forward to it. Thanks for sharing and God Bless you REALLY BIG!!!

My family & I really enjoy watching the show! The Robertson Clan is a great inspiration to families everywhere!
