Like many I knew a little about the Robertson's as a whole, but discovered so much more depth to the family and ,of course, to Missy and Jase Robertson, through this book. They are such great examples of hanging on through the hard and trusting God. Whether or not someone reading this book has themselves had similar hard times or not, I think this book is definitely worth anyone's read. That being said, if someone is facing similar hard times this is a great resource.
Booklover105 Stars Out Of 5honest and transparentNovember 8, 2015Booklover10Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoy Duck Dynasty and respect the Robertson family a lot. They are such a strong, Christian family who have been through the fire and been refined and have given so much glory to God for their lives and the journey they have walked.
Missy and Jase faced some major decisions when it came to the birth of their daughter Mia. She had a cleft lip and palate and needed surgery. This surgery would not just occur once at 3 months old, but would continue at different stages of her development. This wasn't a one-time fix. It was going to be a long journey. Missy did an excellent job explaining the problems it causes, the possible problems that I didn't know could occur with a child who has cleft problems, and even how the entire family had to adjust to the new family normal. Even the boys took on a few responsibilities and I loved it! Sometimes I wonder if I expect too much from my older two kids and this book showed me I didn't.
I love how all of the books the Robertson have written with such honesty and transparency. Missy shares about her thoughts and where her heart truly was throughout the different stages in the journey. She also shares how Jase struggled and how he felt through the different surgeries and doctor appointments. It was sweet to see a daddy's heart and his love for his daughter.
This book really shows how God took what was a bad situation and how God has used it for good and for his glory. Mia is going to do great things as she grows up! Thank you for sharing her story and for raising awareness about the challenges kids with cleft lips and palates face.
I received this book free from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: Blessed, Blessed, BlessedOctober 15, 2015Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Blessed, Blessed, Blessed: The Untold Story Of Our Familys Fight To Love Hard, Stay Strong and Keep The Faith When Life Cant Be Fixed, written by: Missy Robertson w/Beth Clark, is a book that strives to help its readers gain strength for their journey through life.
This book opens up a completely new understanding of Jase, Missy, and their little part of the Robertson clan. Upon these pages, readers will find the real life struggles and the joys of their faith that Missy and her family walked through during what were some difficult days for their marriage, their family, and their faith.
As the pages of this publication are turned, the Robertsons become more than a successful business and television family. They become real, more real than anyone ever could have imagined. As readers walk alongside of their family struggles, their hurts, their faith, they will no doubt grow in a multitude of ways, from the way they see their own families to how important they feel about their faith.
Also included are wonderful family pictures, pictures that pull the entire story behind the book into a more personal positon. These pictures reflect images of the beginning of Missy and Jases relationship, (which show a beardless Jase), to images of their growing family.
This book is HIGHLY recommended as a personal purchase and as a gift.

tickmenotKansas CityGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Serious Challenges, Determined FaithOctober 7, 2015tickmenotKansas CityGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Missy is wife of Jase Robertson who stars with his family on television's hit reality show, Duck Dynasty. No doubt viewers feel they know everything about this family because of their series, but that is far from the truth. This volume is partially an autobiography, and partially an account of the health crisis they have lived through with their youngest child, Mia. This book is an eye-opening account of the ordeal they have traveled since before her birth.
Because of a sonogram done while Missy was pregnant, the family knew ahead of time that Mia would have a cleft lip. However, how extensive it was, or if she would also have a cleft palate were unknown until the actual birth. Having that foreknowledge did allow them to investigate what the best treatment options were, and where to get them. That information served them well when Mia was born, and did have both conditions.
They vowed to help Mia, no matter what the cost.
This is a touching account of the numerous surgeries and onerous procedures Mia has undergone that began when she was seventeen days old. Missy relates how financially strapped they were because of the expense involved with these treatments. Their television show was not a part of their lives yet, and committing to getting this care for Mia was something they understood would take them years to pay for. They vowed to do anything possible to help their child no matter what it would cost them.
Missy also explains that cleft lip and pallet surgery is more for health reasons than cosmetic reasons. Without the procedures, a child can have many health problems including trouble breathing, eating and speaking. She also has lots of helpful advice and encouragement for other parents of children that have these issues.
Some blessings come with difficulties.
This book's title is very descriptive of Missy and Jase's life. The family has been blessed with three children. Their first two children, sons Reed and Cole, were born with no health problems, giving them two blessings. Despite all they have gone through with their youngest child Mia, she is their third blessing. The Robertsons believe that God has guided them through all the hard things they have faced. Without their Christian faith, they do not know how they would have survived it all.
I think most fans of the show will be surprised to learn Jase and Missy have been living through such an extensive ordeal. Despite the television episode that featured Mia before a surgery, I think the significance of her health issues, as well as, the seriousness of the operation, was down-played on the show. Like me, viewers will be stunned to hear about this medical struggle they have been facing.
I hope there will be an additional book about Mia and Jase's life that tells more of their story. This 5-star book ends with the present day, so Mia is still in the midst of invasive treatments. It would be great to have a future book that relates how Mia is doing. I would also like to hear more about Reed and Cole. Anyone who likes real-life stories, fans of Duck Dynasty or true medical stories will like this book. I recommend it.

Deana5 Stars Out Of 5Blessed Beyond WordsSeptember 28, 2015DeanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Missy and Jase came from different backgrounds, but God had a plan to join them together one day and start a family. Little did Missy know what a rude she was in store for. Being from a big family, Jase was often surrounded by brothers, cousins, parents and whoever else just happened to be around. Missy's life was a little quieter until the day she became Mrs. Jase Robertson. Through the very successful television show, "Duck Dynasty" their privates lives were a thing of the past.
They had two sons named, Reed and Cole and a daughter named Mia. When Jase and Missy heard the news that their daughter was born with a cleft palate, they wondered where was God . The journey they were about to start was one they weren't sure they were equipped to handle. The seriousness of their daughter's condition would test their faith , bring tears to their eyes , but be determined to get the best care they could for their daughter.
The surgeries Mia has endured is one that would find her drawing strength from her own faith and from her family and church that prayed diligently for her. Missy describes in details the many surgeries Mia has gone through and the aftercare that brought her to tears at times. It is hard to watch your child as she is wheeled to surgery and you are left standing there feeling helpless. The care Mia required after each surgery was hard but Missy and Jase did it with a sense of hope that each surgery would bring Mia closer to a total healing.
As Missy explains in the book, it is "crucial to have a support system." Their family has stood strong and held them up when they felt at their weakest. Mia is a young lady filled with joy and a testimony that she shares which has people standing to their feet as she bravely talks about her condition . She has never let anything stop her and is an encouragement to many. The book is a powerful testimony of a young girl who has overcome many obstacles with a smile that lights up a room and a heart filled with love. Her faith is unshakeable and her parents have grown stronger as a family during the many surgeries Mia has had.
Jase defines blessed as "reflecting joy that comes from a divine origin." They know they are blessed and speak at events to encourage other parents who have a child experiencing a difficult condition. Their words bring hope, peace and assurance that they are not alone . Missy said the most important lesson she learned was the truth of Deuteronomy 31:8, " Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you."
