HarperCollins Christian Publishing to Release Duck Commander Devotions for Kids February 10, 2015
Korie Robertson and Chrys Howard Issue First Children’s Devotional Book under the Duck Commander Brand
Nashville, Tenn. (January 7, 2015) —– The mother and daughter team of Korie Robertson and Chrys Howard is releasing a new children’s book February 10, 2015, through Tommy Nelson, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing. Duck Commander Devotions for Kids is the first children’s devotional release under the Duck Commander brand, and the project features selected Scripture passages, anecdotal stories from the Robertson family members, prayers, and a Duck Commander In Action section. These motivational messages contain wit, humor and outdoor activities to help young believers grow stronger in their faith and are based on the core values of the Robertson family that have resonated with Americans across the country through A&E’s Duck Dynasty and the Robertsons’ Duck Commander® franchise.
“We are so thrilled to have the opportunity to share our faith with families across the country through our new Duck Commander children’s devotionals,” says Korie Robertson. “I hope this first book, Duck Commander Devotions for Kids, will be a fun tool for kids and parents to explore and develop their beliefs together.”
“Having been involved in educational ministry for many years, I’ve seen the impact that building an early faith foundation can have on our kids,” adds Chrys Howard. “Korie and I are so excited to continue to take part in that ministry by sharing faith lessons in Duck Commander Devotions for Kids.”
Duck Commander Devotions for Kids is beautifully illustrated by Holli Conger and gives vibrancy to the biblically based messages delivered by Robertson and Howard. Their down-home approach to these core truths will be very relatable to children, and the familiarity of both ladies will provide a comfort level to parents and their youngsters. As seen on A&E’s Duck Dynasty, the Robertson clan is very well-known for its dedication to family and faith and have led the program to become one of the highest-rated shows on television.
