John Luke Robertson, the oldest son of Willie and Korie Robertson and brother of Dancing with the Stars sensation Sadie Robertson, shares his story of what its like to grow up as a Robertson and all the fun and craziness that entails, as well as what he has learned as he has stepped out into his own unique experiences. He also shares what its like to navigate the walk from boyhood to becoming a man. Topics in this book include friendship, kindness, dreaming big, embracing your God-given uniqueness, taking chances, and choosing mentors.
John Luke speaks frequently on dreams (how to build a dream for your life), schemes (how to plan for your dream to come true), and building teams (choosing the people around you who will become a team that helps make your dream come true through their support, honesty, and care). He will incorporate these important guidelines into the book, ultimately helping young people learn how to find and pursue a clear-cut purpose in their lives.
Teens and young adults will enjoy reading his story, and they will benefit by reading Robertsons wisdom and perspective on how to grow up and live out your purpose. And, with the Robertsons, this book is sure to be fun!

John Luke Robertson can, and the proof of that is evident from the first page of this volume.
Many may be familiar with him, along with his family, who are featured on the television show, Duck Dynasty. But his family's affluence has not made John Luke materialistic. Far from it, he strives to live a God honoring life, and he shares a lot of that in this book. This is a genuinely nice young man who is intelligent, has lots of ideas, and is very energetic.
Faith, commitment and fun are three words that could be used to describe John Luke. He is serious about his faith, his commitment to his wife, Mary Kate, and he has a fun streak that is a joy to read about. He has had lots of interesting experiences, and has traveled widely in his young life. Books have always been important to him, and he is well-read. In fact, he ends each chapter of Young & Beardless with a book he recommends reading, as well as, questions to make the reader think.
In my opinion, there is nothing more spectacular than listening to someone who is really "turned on" to God. This is, a person who is passionately living out their life to please the Lord. That is what John Luke is attempting to do, and what he wrote about in this book. His outlook on both his faith and life are impressive, even more so because of his age.
I enjoyed learning about this young member of the Robertson family, as well as, the less well-known part of his family, his mother's side. Their history and faith is also inspiring. John Luke has a really good head on his shoulders, and I wish him all the very best as he continues a life with God at the center. This 5-star book really lends itself to teenagers and young adults, but older adults will enjoy it as well.
