We just had to stop! While traveling through Louisiana, we went through West Monroe to see if the T.V. show Duck Dynasty’s headquarters was a real place. It was easy to find located just off the interstate. After turning down the street that the Duck Commanders’ headquarters was supposed to be located, we immediately knew we had found it. The huge R.V. which has been in several episodes was parked out front. The R.V. has Phil, Si, Jase, Godwin, and Willie’s pictures all down the side of it which definitely told us we were in the right place.
Duck Dynasty is about a family business called Duck Commander that was started by Phil Robertson who built the company one duck call at a time. He took orders and shipped them from his home. Today, Duck Commander is over a million dollar company. It is run by one of Phil and Kay’s sons named Willie who is the CEO. The money and success did not change the Robertson men. They still live off the land and hunt and fish. They are also known for their Grizzly Adams type long beards. The family works together, takes orders from Willie (or not), plays together, hunts together, cooks together, sews together, has disagreements with each other, complains about one another but the one thing they always do is get along at the end of the show. They come together around the dinner table and PRAY to THANK GOD for their food and for their family before each meal. Recipes For Our Daily Bread is all about finding things that families can do together like cooking and having fun while honoring God. I especially encourage families to spend time not only in the kitchen with the entire family but also around the table praying and eating together. Duck Dynasty does a lot of things that we may not try but they definitely do one thing we should all try which is spending great family time around the table.
Do you and your family pray around the table? Is prayer important to you? Comment below!
