"Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson showcased her Christian beliefs in a whole new way on "Dancing with the Stars" this week.
As part of Monday's "Dynamic Duos Night," Robertson and her "DWTS" professional dance partner Mark Ballas dressed as the Bible's first couple, Adam and Eve, in the Garden in Eden. The dancing duo were clad in decorative costumes that featured green leaves, and Robertson even held an apple which represented the fruit in the Genesis account. Since the start of the "DWTS" season, Robertson has been outspoken about her strong Christian faith. This week, the teen addressed the opportunity to portray Adam and Eve on the show.
The OnePlus company is scheduled to open pre-orders for a second time for their first released phone, the OnePlus One. The One is popularly known for its premium specs – on par with the LG G3, the HTC One M8, and even the Sony Xperia Z2 – which sells for less than half of the price of today's premium phones.
Though their phones are known for its budget pricing with the offer of premium line specs, the process to get one is of notorious acclaim. The company had relied on an invite system for interested customers to purchase the phone, which was met with disaster.
OnePlus opened up pre-orders for the One earlier this week Oct. 27 for one hour only. As expected, the pre-orders did not go as smoothly as the company wanted due to overwhelming traffic on the company's website. Doubled server sizes and a time extension of three hours apparently did not help, which prompted OnePlus to schedule another pre-order period. more >>
"19 Kids & Counting" star Jessa Duggar exchanged vows with her fiancé Ben Seewald on Saturday, Nov. 1, in front of family and friends, but saved her first kiss for after the ceremony.
The couple said "I do" in front of nearly 1,000 guests at the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas. Younger sister Jinger served as the maid of honor, while Ben's best friend Dylan McMahan was the best man. Jessa and Ben wrote their own vows for the ceremony and had an unexpected surprise for the crowd … they did not kiss, as is tradition at the end of the wedding.
Fans of "19 Kids and Counting" and the Duggar family will be thrilled to learn that their friends, the also larger-than-life Bates family has just scored its own TV series on the UP network.
"Bringing Up Bates" will re-introduce viewers to Gil and Kelly Jo Bates and their 19 children, as well as their first grandchild. Gil and Kelly Jo, along with their children, often made appearances on "19 Kids and Counting," which airs on TLC. The Bates family is very close and focused on God, who they thank for all their children.
"Our precious children have taught us that money is not the only riches in life. In fact, money won't last," the family wrote on its website. "Only two things in life will: people and God's word! So our goal is to train up our children in the ways of the Lord that they might enter work places, churches, and homes as soldiers for Christ and servants to all. And in so doing we'll all have purpose and direction for life." more >>
"Duck Dynasty" fans may be familiar with the Mountain Man (aka Tim Guraedy), and he has just written a new book entitled Mountain Man: Keepin' a Slow Profile. The Mountain Man took time to speak with The Christian Post about living a slow lifestyle, remaining true to one's self, and how the Robertson family has impacted him.
"I always wanted to write a book," Guraedy said. "There's been so many questions out there: do you really talk that slow? I decided to put it into a book and answer a lot of questions about my Christian faith, which I am proud of and just slowing some people down from the everyday rush. The book wasn't meant to come at people like 'You've gotta do this or else.' It was a little advice and encouragement; it worked for me and maybe it'll work for them. It kinda tells the story of my life from where I've been to where I am."
The Mountain Man is an air-conditioning repair man who received a call to work on Willie Robertson's unit. What he didn't expect was the fame that would come with appearing on the hit reality series "Duck Dynasty," which features the entire Robertson clan. People fell in love with Guraedy just as much as the Robertson family, and he became a regular on the show. more >>
