Living "So That" Receives Posts and Tweets From Dancing with the Stars Celeb Sadie Robertson

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - September 24, 2014) - Duck Dynasty celebrity Sadie Robertson, whose family is known for their devout faith, packed a book in her suitcase before traveling to compete on Dancing with the Stars. On September 14 she posted on her Instagram account, which has over 965,000 followers, this message: "Packing for La, thank you @bosshogswife for my devotional book to take with me. God comes with me no matter where I go."

Robertson's post featured a photo of the book Living "So That": Making Faith-Filled Choices in the Midst of a Messy Life by Wendy Blight. The Blaze included the Instagram post in their article of Robertson's debut on the show.

Grammy Award winner Mandisa, an American contemporary Christian recording artist whose career began in the fifth season of American Idol, posted an excerpt from Blight's book on September 19 on Facebook.

"It thrills me that the hearts of godly young women and successful entertainers like Sadie Robertson and Mandisa, who have earned much respect in their own right, have been encouraged and inspired in their faith by Living 'So That,'" said Blight. "I'm grateful that through their words, women who may never walk into a bookstore or log onto a website, are exposed to God's heart and the Bible through what I've written in Living 'So That.'"

Blight shares that many of the spiritual truths discussed in the book touch on the issues women struggle with in marriage, family, and even their relationship with God.

"We are thrilled to see the response to Wendy Blight's book Living So That because of the appeal we believed it would have to readers all over the world," said Sally Hofmann, Senior Vice President of Sales Operation at HarperCollins Christian Publishing. "Not only do we see the positive momentum of sales, but it has created a unique opportunity that we desire for books to have in reaching many more individuals than previously possible through the power of social media."

Blight's book is one of seven under the InScribed collection from HarperCollins Christian Publishing for women of all ages and walks of life. (
