“Prayer … a lot of prayer, because there have been difficult times,” Shackleford said.
“People look at happy people and think, ‘Oh, you’ve never had anything bad happen to you,’ and that’s just not true. Everyone has had bad things happen to them.”
This fall, Sadie will take her messages of faith on the road as she embarks on her first “Live Original” event tour, named after her New York Times best-selling book and lifestyle message that encourages people to stay true to themselves and their values.
The program will be filled with family, friends and music to spread her message that young people can live positively and passionately while remaining in tune with their faith.
