Young and Beardless: The Search for God, Purpose, and a Meaningful Life by John Luke Robertson

Young and Beardless: The Search for God, Purpose, and a Meaningful Life

Since I first discovered the Roberston family, I have greatly enjoyed and been blessed by reading their autobiographies. I was excited when I saw this newest book from the amazing Duck Dynasty family...this one by John Luke! At first it might seem unnecessary for me, a young woman in my 20s to be reading this book. But I was blessed and invigorated by it, and am happy to recommend it to every young guy I know! And yes, it is a great book for girls too. I was impressed by John Luke's sincerity, openness and faith in God. Not to mention his purpose in life. It is absolutely encouraging to see young people following God and going forward in life as John Luke is doing. A good thing also about this slim paperback book are the study questions at the end of each chapter.
I know people will love reading this book; thankfully I'm including guys- I can assure you that boys will be able to relate to and learn from John Luke! 

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. 
John Luke Robertson may be young and beardless, but he has a lot to say about growing up and discovering your purpose.

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 it’s 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 it’s 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 Robertson’s wisdom and perspective on how to grow up and live out your purpose. And, with the Robertsons, this book is sure to be fun!
