Willie Robertson’s tribute to his family and business. It is poorly written but it’s honest and humorous in places. The Robertsons have a strong family but it wasn’t always so.

Excerpts From My Kindle

Jase was a set three-point shooter, but he couldn’t make layups to save his life. He would run back and always shoot a three-pointer; it was the only shot he ever took or made. In one game, Jase scored thirty-four points–thirty-three came on three-pointers, and he made one foul shot. He always took a high, arching shot and made most of them. – location 786-88

Hebrews 12:11 says, “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” – location 671-72

I’ve told you these stories not to say, “Look what I’ve done,” but to say, “Look what God’s done.” I give Him all the glory. From being a kid who was on free lunches to today, a lot of good things have happened in my life. I’ve had a few tough times as well, but mostly I’m just happy to be here. I look around and think, “Wow, I’m eating the back strap off a monster deer that I killed in Kansas hunting with my best buddies.” Life is good! – location 2812-15

Like I say in one way or another at the end of each episode of Duck Dynasty, at the end of the day, we’re a family first, and everything else is just not worth getting that worked up over. – location 2957-58
