The Good, the bad, and the Grace of God by Jep and Jessica Robertson

A big thanks to Netgalley and Thomas Nelson–W Publishing for an ebook copy in exchange for my honest review.

My review: I love Duck Dynasty so when I got a chance to review this book I was super excited! And I was not disappointed at all. It was a very good book. I loved learning about their love story and how they met. I also loved reading about all the things they each had to overcome from their past to end up where they are today. Good read! I would highly recommend this book for those who are fans of Duck Dynasty. Also for anyone looking for real life examples of love, forgiveness, and second chances. 4 stars!

Book description (from Goodreads): 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 done; no matter what you’ve lived through, you can come out of it. You can be washed clean. You are redeemed.”
