A Moving Story of Redemption and Second Chances  

Jep Robertson, the youngest son of Duck Commander Phil Robertson, and his wife, Jessica, open up about their personal trials, their early years together, and the challenges that might have destroyed them both had the grace of God not intervened. Jep describes being molested as a child and his reluctance to tell anyone until only a few years ago, his downward spiral into drug and alcohol abuse, and the eventual intervention of his family. Jessica shares about the difficult failure of her first marriage while still a teenager and the hurt that came along with it, much of it from the church. Her insecurities spun out of control as she wondered whether she would ever be good enough or pretty enough. This book is their love story but, more importantly, their love story for God.

"We are desperate to let people know that no matter what you've do≠ no matter what you've lived through, you can come out of it.  You can be washed clean.  You are redeemed."

Join Jep and Jessica Robertson of the Duck Dynasty clan, as they tell the story of their life. Starting with what seemed like golden childhoods for each, their lives before and after they met were never easy. Both dealt with addiction and struggles and lives that seemed to be on the path of destruction. They face the good and the bad, and with the help of family, friends and the constant presence of the grace of God, Jep and Jessica find their way back. In this autobiographical account, Jep and Jessica tell their story in order to encourage others to be strong in their own faith. They give readers a story of hope and the true meaning of forgiveness and grace. An emotional book that’s hard to put down.
