Missy Robertson knew that marrying duck-hunting family man Jase Robertson would be an adventure . . . and she was up to the challenge. Their life together was good (even after Jase grew the beard). They had two children, worked hard to help build the thriving Duck Commander business, and loved and served God.
But after a difficult and risky pregnancy, their daughter, Mia, was born with a cleft palate―a serious condition requiring multiple cranial and facial surgeries. As their baby struggled to breathe, and Missy and Jase faced a life that suddenly looked very different than the one they’d planned, they found themselves staring down one of life’s biggest questions: Where is God in all this pain?
This is the Robertsons’ story. It’s for anyone scared and overwhelmed by a problem they can’t fix; anyone lost and searching for a way through. You’ll meet the young girl Mia who captured A&E’s Duck Dynasty viewers’ hearts, and learn how Missy and Jase have raised her and their sons to be faithful, confident, and secure in who they are. You’ll be inspired by how the Robertson family stuck by each other through the hardest times. And you’ll discover that God’s blessings are bigger than you ever dreamed―and there when you need them the most.
This dramatic story shows hos God can shine through even in the most difficult of circumstances. Each step Jase and Missy took they had to have God there leading them, pushing them, and holding them. Not one step was ever taken alone. From the moment they learned of their daughter’s fate, they knew it was going to take a God moment to pull all of them through and He would have to stick around to help them through many, many more.
I love learning how this family survives and deals with their issues be it good or bad because they choose to do it God’s way. Because of that I look to them as mentors in a sesnse and someone that we can all learn from.
