A BRAIN MASS, AND WE'RE

GOING TO DO SOME SURGERY.

GOOD MORNING AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

SHE IS THE DARLING OF

"DUCK DYNASTY", SADIE

ROBERTSON.

GRANDDAUGHTER OF PHIL

BUT FORGET ALL THAT.

HERSELF.

BEST-SELLING BOOK,

NOW SHE IS ENCOURAGING

EVERYONE SHE MEETS TO LIVE

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: SADIE

ROBERTSON IS WELL-KNOWN

FOR HER DIMPLES AND

ENGAGING SMILE.

BUT THERE IS A LOT MORE TO

THE 19-YEAR-OLD STAR OF

"DUCK DYNASTY."

AS A SPEAKER AND ADVOCATE

FOR HER GENERATION, SHE

HAS LEARNED HOW TO LIVE

ORIGINAL BY UPHOLDING HER

FAMILY VALUES AND FAITH

CONVICTIONS IN TODAY'S

CULTURE.

IN HER LATEST BOOK "LIVE

ORIGINAL DEVOTIONAL,"

SADIE SHARES THE

PRINCIPLES THAT GUIDE HER

IN LIFE, AND HOW SHE STAYS

POSITIVE, AND HOW YOU CAN

LIVE A FULFILLING LIFE,

TOO.

Gordon: JOINING ME

NOW IS SADIE, AND IT IS AN

HONOR TO HAVE YOU.

IT IS GOOD TO BE HERE.

Gordon: YOUR DAD GAVE

YOU THIS NAME, THAT YOU'RE

THE ORIGINAL?

YEAH.

Gordon: WHAT STARTED

THAT.

I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD,

AND I STARTED PREACHING ON

THE TABLE TO MY PARENTS.

AND MY DAD WAS, THIS KID

IS VERY ORIGINAL --

Gordon: HOLD ON.

TAKE ME BACK TO FIVE YEARS

OLD.

WHY DO YOU GET UP ON TOP

OF THE TABLE?

I HAVE NO IDEA.

I JUST GOT UP THERE TO

START PREACHING.

I WAS TELLING MY PARENTS,

YOU'RE GOING TO GO TO

HEAVEN IF YOU LOVE GOD AND

DAH, DAH, DAH, AND IN THE

MIDDLE OF ALL THIS

CRAZINESS, I SAID EVEN IF

I'M FAMOUS ONE DAY, I'M

NOT GOING TO THINK OF

MYSELF, I'M GIVING IT TO

GOD.

AND I STARTED SINGING,

GIVE IT UP FOR GOD.

AND MY DAD SAID, THIS KID

IS CRAZY, AND HE NAMED ME

ORIGINAL.

AND IT REMINDS ME THAT I

WAS BORN TO BE ORIGINAL

AND BE WHO I AM AND SPEAK

AND BE BE CONFIDENT IN

THAT.

THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, I

RECOGNIZED HOW IMPORTANT

THAT MESSAGE WAS TO ME

WHEN I DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE

IT.

Gordon: YOU

DEFINITELY ARE AN

ORIGINAL.

YOU'VE GOT A PLATFORM THAT

IS A WHOLE LOT BIGGER THAN

THE KITCHEN TABLE.

YAY, GOOD FOR YOU.

THANKS.

Gordon: YOU WENT

THROUGH A PERIOD WHERE IT

WAS TOUGH FOR YOU AND YOU

HAD ANXIETY ABOUT SPEAKING

IN PUBLIC.

AND HERE YOU ARE ON TV.

DO YOU HAVE ANY ANXIETY

NOW?

YOU KNOW, IT'S CRAZY.

NOT TO SAY I'M FEARLESS --

I HAVE A TATTOO THAT SAYS

"FEARLESS," DADDY

APPROVED --

Gordon: DID NOM

APPROVE?

YES, MOM APPROVED IT.

I WENT THROUGH A PERIOD

WHERE FEAR WAS ANSWERING

THE QUESTIONS, AND SAYING

NO, WHEN I WANTED TO SAY

YES.

DURING THOSE TWO AND A

HALF YEARS, I BEGAN TO

PRAY JUST REALLY, REALLY

STRONGLY ABOUT MY HEART.

I REALIZED UP TO THAT

POINT, I WAS PRAYING FOR

MY SITUATIONS TO CHANGE.

AND I NEVER STOPPED TO

PRAY FOR MY HEART TO

CHANGE.

I REALIZED I CAN PRAY AND

HAVE NO FEAR.

AND THE THE BECAUSE OF

GOD.

WHEN I JUMPED, GOD CAUGHT

ME.

WHEN I RAN UP ON STAGE,

GOD MET ME, AND IN ALL OF

THOSE SITUATIONS.

AND MY MOM WOULD ALWAYS

POUR THAT MESSAGE INTO ME.

THE JOURNEY IS STILL

DAILY, AND I HAVE TO

REMIND MYSELF THAT I'M A

FEARLESS CHILD OF GOD

BECAUSE GOD HAS ALREADY

CONQUERED MY FEARS, AND

FOR NO OTHER REASON.

Gordon: STATISTICS

SHOW THE BIGGEST FEAR OF

ALL AMERICANS IS PUBLIC

SPEAKING.

REALLY?

Gordon: TO BE ABLE TO

STAND UP AND SAY

SOMETHING, WHICH IS WHY A

LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T.

UH-HUH.

YEAH.

Gordon: THEY MAY SEE

SOMETHING GOING ON AND SAY

THAT'S NOT RIGHT, BUT THEY

RATHER SAY THAT IN PRIVATE

THAN STAND UP AND SAY IT

BECAUSE THEY'RE AVER AFRAID.

Reporter: THE FIRST

TIME I GOT ASKED TO SPEAK

WAS AT WINTER JAM, TWO

YEARS AGO, AND I WAS,

LIKE, NO WAY.

AND MY MOM SAID, SADIE,

YOU HAVE TO GO.

AND I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND

WHY SHE WAS DOING THAT.

AND I WAS SO MAD --

Gordon: DID YOU EVER

FIND OUT WHY?

OF COURSE.

MOM KNOWS BEST.

WHAT MY MOM SAW WAS NOT

THAT I HAVE THIS TALENT,

BUT GOD NEEDS ME TO GO DO

THIS.

IT WAS ABOUT FORGETTING

WHAT I NEEDED AND FOCUSING

ON WHAT DAD WANTED ME TO

DO AT THAT TIME.

AND I'M THANKFUL THAT SHE

DID THAT.

AND,, OF COURSE, NOW I

LOVE TO SPEAK.

I'M REALLY THANKFUL THAT

MY MOM PUSHED ME IN THAT.

Gordon: LET'S TALK

ABOUT WRITING, BECAUSE

YOU'RE DOING MORE THAN

JUST SPEAKING.

WHAT MADE YOU WRITE A

BOOK?

I THOUGHT, HOW DO I

WANT TO SAY THE IT.

AND I THOUGHT, I'LL WRITE

A BOOK AND THEN WE'LL SEE.

AND THAT BACKFIRED, AND

ONCE YOU WRITE A BOOK,

EVERYBODY WANTS YOU TO

SPEAK ABOUT IT.

THAT WAS UNEXPECTED.

YEAH, EVERYTHING THAT

HAPPENS IS JUST SO, WOW,

HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?

WE'RE FROM LOUISIANA, A

SMALL TOWN, AND I WOULD

NOT HAVE THOUGHT THIS WILL

BE MY LIFE.

YOU WRITE A BOOK, AND YOU

DON'T EXPECT IT TO SAY

"NEW YORK TIMES"

BEST-SELLER.

IT WAS GOD BEING LIKE, HA,

I KNOW BETTER THAN YOU.

KEEP WALKING.

Gordon: DO YOU EVER

GO BACK TO THAT TIME WHEN

YOU WERE FIVE, ON THE

KITCHEN TABLE, AND SAY,

GOD MUST HAVE HAD THAT

PLAN FROM THERE?

OF COURSE.

AND I TRY TO GO BACK TO

THAT INNOCENCE AND NOT

BEING FEARFUL, AND

STEPPING UP ON THAT TABLE

WITHOUT ANY HESITATION.

AND SO WHEN I GO UP ON

STAGE, JUST REMINDING

MYSELF OF THAT INNOCENCE

AND WHY WAS I NOT AFRAID?

WHY WAS I SO CONFIDENT?

BECAUSE I KNEW I WAS

SAYING WAS TRUE.

SO I DEFINITELY GO BACK

THERE.

Gordon: DO YOU HAVE

ANY GLIMPSE OF WA WHA WHAT THE

NEXT STEP IN THE JOURNEY

IS GOING TO BE FOR YOU?

YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING IS

OKAY.

IF I THOUGHT ABOUT IT FIVE

YEARS AGO, I COULDN'T CALL

IT.

I'M WORKING ON MORE

DEVOTIONALS AND MORE

TOURS.

I WANT TO MEET YOU ON THE

STREET, NOT ON THE SCREEN.

THAT'S KIND OF LIKE MY

GOAL RIGHT NOW, GOING OUT

AND MEETING THE PEOPLE.

Gordon: THAT'S A GOOD

MOTTO.

I THINK THE SCREEN

ACTUALLY DIVIDES US.

THE MORE YOU MEET IN

PERSON, THE MORE YOU GET A

SENSE OF THE PERSON THERE.

ABSOLUTELY.

Gordon: AND YOU CAN

HIDE BEHIND A SCREEN

SOMETIMES.

YES.

TOO MANY FILTERS.

Gordon: TOO MANY.

THERE IS A GOOD LINE, WHEN

YOU CAN SEE SOMEBODY, THEY

CAN'T HIDE.

> YOU'RE NOW TALKING TO

OTHERS TO SAY HOW TO GET

THROUGH FIVE SECONDS OF

AWKWARD.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

SO MY COUSIN TOLD ME

ONE TIME, I WAS JUST

STARTING TO DATE, AND SHE

IS A MENTOR IN MY LIFE.

SHE IS OLDER THAN I AM AND

SHE IS MARRIED.

AND SHE SAID, SADIE, JUST

REMEMBER THAT FIVE SECONDS

OF AWKWARD CAN SAVE YOU

FROM A LIFETIME OF REGRET.

WHEN SHE TOLD ME THAT, I

THOUGHT, OKAY.

BUT THEN YOU GET INTO A

SITUATION AND YOU REALIZE

WHAT SHE MEANS.

THAT FIVE SECONDS OF

TAKING THE TIME TO SAY NO,

AND IT MAY BE AU AWKWARD

ANDPROBABLY WILL BE

AWKWARD, BUT IT WILL SAVE

YOU A LIFETIME.

WHEN SHE TOLD ME THAT,

LIKE I SAID, IT DIDN'T HIT

ME UNTIL LATER, AND I WAS

IN THAT SITUATION.

YOU HAVE TO PREPARE FOR

THOSE TIMES.

YOU HAVE TO BE STRONG

ENOUGH TO SAY NO,

CONFIDENTLY, AND LOOK BACK

AND NOT REGRET THAT AND BE

SO GLAD YOU DID BECAUSE OF

WHAT COULD HAVE COME FROM

IT.

Gordon: DO YOU DATE?

ACTUALLY, I'M SINGLE

RIGHT NOW.

SO, YEAH.

Gordon: I CAN'T

IMAGINE ANYBODY HAVING THE

GUMPTION TO ASK YOU OUT.

I WOULD THINK THAT YOU

COMING IN WOULD BE AT THIS

POINT --

CRAZY?

Gordon: YEAH.

AND DAD'S A GOOD SHOT,

TOO.

ACCURATE.

BE CAREFUL.

Gordon: YEAH.

WHEN I STARTED DATING MY

WIFE, MY FUTURE

FATHER-IN-LAW MADE SURE I

KNEW HE HAD A SHOTGUN.

[LAUGHTER]

THAT'S A DAD THING.

Gordon: YEAH, THAT IS

A DAD THING.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE

PROTECTED.

I JUST SEE GOOD THINGS FOR

YOU IN THE FUTURE, I

REALLY DO.

I REALLY ADMIRE WHAT

YOU'RE DOING AND HOW

YOU'RE ENCOURAGING PEOPLE

TO LIVE RIGHT.

WHERE DO YOU THINK WE'RE

GOING AS A CULTURE?

OH, AS A CULTURE --

WELL, SPEAKING OF MEDIA, I

THINK THAT WE'RE COUNTING

ON THIS TO BRING US

TOGETHER.

AND FOR SOME REASON,

SOMETIMES WE'RE MORE

SEPARATED THAN WE'VE EVER

BEEN.

SO I THINK AS A CULTURE,

PEOPLE JUST AREN'T

RECOGNIZING THAT, WHICH IS

A GOOD THIFNLGT BECAUSE

NOTHING.BECAUSE NOW WITH THE

TOURS, WE'RE COMING BACK

TOGETHER.

AND ESPECIALLY AFTER THIS

PAST ELECTION, WE'VE SEEN

THE SPLIT AND THE

DIVISION, AND NOW IT IS

TIME TO START COMING BACK.

AND I HOPE THAT TO BE

TRUE.

AND I AM CERTAINLY TRYING

THE BEST I CAN TO MAKE IT

HAPPEN, FROM MY SIDE OF

IT.

AND I HOPE OTHERS ARE

TRYING TO DO THE SAME

THING.

WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO

IT.

LIKE FROM EVERYBODY'S

POINT OF VIEW, HEY, I'M

GOING TO TRY.

I'M GOING TO BRING US IN.

IT JUST TAKES THE PEOPLE

DOING IT.

THAT'S WHAT I HOPE THAT

OUR CULTURE IS DOING.

Gordon: I THINK WE

NEED TO PRAY IT IN.

PRAY ONE NATION, UNDER

GOD, INDEVISABLE, AND THEN

WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE

FOR ALL.

THAT'S GOOD.

Gordon: AND WHEN WE

HAVE THAT, AND NOT JUST AN

ASPIRATION, AND WE SAY,

I'M DEDICATING MY LIFE TO

MAKING THAT REAL, THEN I

THINK WE CAN HAVE THAT.

BUT IT IS GOING TO TAKE

THAT.

AND IF WE'RE FOCUSED ON

THE DIVISION, IF WE'RE

FOCUSED ON WHAT SEPARATES

US, IT IS A MISTAKE.

WE NEED TO FOCUS ON WHAT

UNIFIES US.

AND I THINK YOU'RE GOING

TO BE KEY TO THAT.

OH, THANK YOU.

Gordon: ANY REGRETS

ABOUT GOING OFF TV?

OR ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD

TO GOING OFF TV?

YOU KNOW, IT'S A FAMILY

DECISION AND WE'RE

EXCITEDED ABOUEXCITEDABOUT IT.

IT'S A LITTLE SAD, BUT

WE'VE BEEN DOING IT FOR

FIVE YEARS.

AND IT IS MY TIME TO GO

OFF.

MY BROTHERS ARE AT COLLEGE

AND PEOPLE ARE GROWING UP.

Gordon: DO YOU HAVE A

PITCH FOR NEW SHOWS?

I WANT TO -- WE'LL SEE.

DOT, DOT, DOT, QUESTION

MARK.

Gordon: STAY TUNED

FOR SOME BREAKING NEWS

ABOUT SADIE'S NEXT PROJECT

ON TELEVISION.

I LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

THANK YOU.

Gordon: I WILL STAND

ON THE SIDELINES AND CHEER

YOU ON.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Gordon: IF YOU WANT

TO LEARN MORE ABOUT

SADIE'S "LIVE ORIGINAL"

BOOK AND DEVOTIONAL,

THEY'RE AVAILABLE

EVERYWHERE.

> COMING UP NEXT, SHE

WAS GIVEN SIX MONTHS TO

LIVE SEVEN YEARS AGO.

IF YOU THINK MY GOD WHO

CREATED THIS UNIVERSE

CAN'T WHOOP SOME PUNEY

CANCER SELLS, YOU'VE GOT

ANOTHER THING COMING.

Gordon: SEE HOW SHE

BEAT AN INCURABLE DISEASE.

AND, PLUS, WE'LL BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

Gordon: IN A SPAN OF

A FEW WEEKS, JENNIFER POLK

WENT FROM PERFECTLY

HEALTHY TO STARING DOWN

DEATH.

SHE HAD A SMALL,

ORANGE-SIZED TUMOR GROWING

BY HER BRAIN, AND WAS TOLD

IT WAS INCURABLE.

STILL, JENNIFER'S FAITH

NEVER WAVERED BECAUSE SHE

HELD ON TO A PROMISE FROM

GOD AND THE PRAYERS OF HER

FRIENDS.

I JUST DIDN'T FEEL

WELL.

I COULDN'T PUT MY FINGER

ON ONE AREA.

LIKE MY HEAD HURT OR MY

ANKLE -- IT WASN'T

ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

I GENERALLY DIDN'T FEEL

WELL.

Reporter: JENNIFER

EXPERIENCED FLU-LIKE

SYMPTOMS FOR TWO WEEKS

WHEN HER HUSBAND INSISTED

SHE SEE A DOCTOR.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND

GIVEN MEDICATION.

A FEW DAYS LATER, SHE WAS

SENT TO THE EMERGENCY

ROOM.

THE DOCTOR SAYS, I'M

GOING TO DO A CHEST X-RAY

AND A HEAD C.T. SCAN.

Reporter: THE SCAN

SHOWED SWELLING ON THE

RIGHT SIDE OF HER BRAIN.

SO HER DOCTOR ORDERED AN

M.R.I.

AND THE M.R.I. REVEALED A

THE TO TUMOR THE SIZE OF A

SMALL ORANGE.

IT WENT FROM YOU HAVE

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE TO THE

NEUROSURGEON SAYING YOU

HAVE A BRAIN TUMOR AND

WE'RE GOING TO DO SURGERY

TODAY AT 2:30.

I THREW A LITTLE FIT, I

GUESS.

AND I HAD TO GET IT

TOGETHER.

I HAD TO PRAY TO GOD AND

ASK HIM TO BRING ME SOME

CLARITY.

I STILL HAD TO BE THERE

FOR MY WIFE.

TO DO THAT, I HAD TO HAVE

GOD.

I DON'T FREAK OUT ABOUT

A LOT OF THINGS.

I ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY

KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE

FINE.

I WAS, LIKE, GOD HAS GOT

THIS.

I GUESS IT WAS JUST MY

DEFIANT FAITH THAT HE HAD

IT.

Reporter: JENNIFER

UNDERWENT SURGERY FOR FOUR

AND A HALF HOURS AND A

BIOPSY REVEALED SHE HAD

STAGE THREE BRAIN CANCER,

BECAUSE THERE WAS A 70%

CHANCE THE TUMOR WOULD

REGROW, THEY GAVE HER SIX

MONTHS TO LIVE.

IT IS A PRIMARY BRAIN

TUMOR THAT IS MA MALIGNANT

AND IF IT IS CANCEROUS, IT

IS CONSIDERED UNCURABLE.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

PROGNOSIS, JENNIFER CHOSE

TO TRUST GOD.

IF YOU THINK MY GOD,

WHO CREATED THIS UNIVERSE,

CAN'T WHOOP SOME PUNEY

CANCER CELLS, YOU'VE GOT

ANOTHER THING COMING.

I WILL DO DO CHEMO AND

RADIATION AS A PRECAUTION,

AND IF THOSE ARE THE TOOLS

IS GIVING ME TO BEAT THIS

THING, THEN THAT'S WHAT

WE'RE GOING TO DO.

I WAS FRUSTRATED.

I WAS REALLY MAD.

I HAD TO GET CLOSE TO GOD

REAL FAST OR EVERYTHING

WAS GOING TO GET OUT OF

CONTROL.

I HAD TO GET THAT CLARITY

IN MY MIND THAT HE WAS IN

CONTROL AND HE HAD IT

TAKEN CARE OF.

Reporter: JENNIFER

STOOD FIRM IN HER BELIEF

THAT GOD WOULD HEAL HER.

SHE ENDURED CHEMO AND

RADIATION FOR THE NEXT FEW

MONTHS WITH I IRVING BY HER

SIDE.

I HAD ABOUT THREE

MONTHS LEFT, AND I SAID,

I'M NOT DOING IT ANYMORE.

I WAS SO TIRED OF BEING

SICK.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, BABY,

FINISH.

AND I DIDN'T WANT TO

BECAUSE I WAS SO TIRED OF

BEING SICK.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, YOU'VE

GOT TO FINISH.

AND I WOULD, BUT IT WAS

AWFUL.

IT WAS HORRIBLE.

THERE WERE MANY DAYS

WHERE WE CRIED, THERE WERE

MANY DAYS WHERE WE

LAUGHED, AND THERE WERE

MANY DAYS WHEN WE GOT

ANGRY, BUT WE GOT THROUGH

THOSE DAYS.

Reporter: JENNIFER'S

FAITH WAS BOLSTERED BY THE

MANY PEOPLE PRAYING FOR

HER.

MY MOM AND DAD AND

THEIR CHURCH -- EVERYBODY

WE KNEW WAS PRAYING.

MY MARY KAY FAMILY WAS

PRAYING.

I PEOPLE ACROSS THE WORLD

PRAYING FOR ME.

THE PRAYER CHAIN WAS

JUST OVERWHELMING BECAUSE

WE WOULD GET NOTIFICATIONS

THAT, HEY, YOU'RE ON OUR

PRAYER CHAIN.

IT WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE.

Reporter: ONE DAY

WHILE RESTING AT HOME,

JENNIFER WAS OVERCOME BY

AN ASSURING PRESENCE.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT

JUST FELT LIKE SOMEBODY

THAT LAID A BIG, THICK,

FLUFFY WARM BLANKET ON THE

TOP OF ME AND COMPLETELY

COVERED ME WITH IT.

IT WAS LIKE THE WARMEST,

MOST COMFORTABLE FEELING.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I WAS

SO THANKFUL.

I CAN'T DESCRIBE IT.

AND I JUST KNEW AT THAT

POINT THAT IT WAS GOD

SAYING, I'VE GOT YOU.

Reporter: JENNIFER

COMPLETED THE CHEMO AND

RADIATION AND HAS BEEN

CANCER-FREE FOR SEVEN

YEARS.

THE LORD BROUGHT HER

BACK 100%.

SHE WAS DOWN.

LET ME TELL YOU.

AND GOD HAS GIVEN ME THE

JOY OF SEEING HER

BEAUTIFUL FACE EVERY DAY.

AND I LOVE HER MORE AND

MORE EVERY TIME I SEE IT.

GOD ANSWERED 100%

PRAYERS OF JENNIFER'S

HEALING.

FOR HER TO BE HERE SEVEN

YEARS LATER IS A TRUE

MIRACLE.

I'M SURE THAT

EVERYWHERE I GO PEOPLE GET

TIRED OF HEARING MY STORY.

I GO TO THE NAIL SALON,

AND I TELL PEOPLE THAT GOD

HEALED ME FROM A BRAIN

TUMOR.

EVERYWHERE I GO, I FEEL

LIKE I'M STILL HERE FOR A

REASON, AND I THINK THAT

REASON IS TO TELL PEOPLE

THAT HE IS STILL ON THE

THRONE AND HE IS STILL

WORKING MIRACLES.

AND I'M SITTING HERE TODAY

BECAUSE HE DOES.

ON THE THRONE AND HE IS

STILL WORKING MIRACLES.

"JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER."

THE EARTH 2,000 YEARS AGO,

TO HIM.

LET HIM BE THE AUTHOR AND

THE FINISHER OF YOUR

FAITH.

IS PRAYING FOR YOU.

INTERCESSION FOR THE

SAINTS.

THE BULLIES.
