Ep. 2.36 : Faith, Family, and Happy Happy Happy with Duck Dynasty

Pardon the Mess brings you our special Thanksgiving episode straight from Willie and Korie Robertson’s home in West Monroe, Louisiana. In case you ’re wondering, yes, I was a touch starstruck when Willie walked by to go hunting (he gone), and yes, I hummed “Sharp Dressed Man” walking up their sidewalk. We had the great pleasure of chatting with three generations of this sweet family: Chrys Howard (Korie’s Mom), Korie Robertson, and John Luke Robertson (Korie and Willie’s son). They let us in on some of the traditions in their family and how faith has been central to all they do. Korie talked about the two character attributes she and Willie worked to instill in their kids and what it looked like parenting their crew during the craziness of Duck Dynasty. John Luke shared the most important thing his parents did that impacted his faith and what he hopes to carry on with his own wife and their new baby boy, who was born a few days after our interview. And Chrys—bless it, she’s about the coolest grandmother one could ever hope for. She’s fun, practical, and gives great advice on keeping your family close and staying relevant to your grandkids. The Lord gave this family a huge platform for sharing their faith and family values. Today’s podcast will give you a peek behind the curtain of what makes their faith so deeply rooted. You’ll leave encouraged to pass the torch well when it comes to family values and your love for Jesus. That’s a fact, Jack! Read More
