Blessed, Blessed...Blessed by Missy Robertson with Beth Clark

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.

My Thoughts
I really enjoyed reading this book. I have been a Duck Dynasty fan since the beginning, but seeing their real life struggles makes me like them even more. They aren't just celebrities on TV, they are real people with real problems, who are just trying to live their everyday lives fully relying on God. Following Missy through the journey of Mia's cleft lip/palate and all the things that entails really put a lot of things in perspective. I thought Missy did a great job of explaining Mia's condition. Reading about all the struggles little Mia went through made me just want to love on her. I couldn't believe how many surgeries and doctor visits were involved with a child with this type of special needs. 
I was amazed at the strength and thoughtfulness that Mia showed throughout all her surgeries and hospital visits. She sounds like an extraordinary  girl who I would love to know. I only hope with any struggle I go through that I might handle it with as much faith and strength as Mia and Missy and the Robertson crew. 
I was blessed with this book by Tyndale in exchange for my review. A positive review was not required.

  1. Sometimes I think we forget that celebrities are real people. It's exciting to take a peak into their lives.
