Next We've recently seen a couple of kids who got famous at a young age do some pretty crazy things.
But while Miley Cyrus makes headlines for posing topless and Justin Bieber for alleged DUI arrests and just plain being a jerk, 'Duck Dynasty's' Sadie Robertson is making headlines for a very different reason.
The 16-year-old 'Duck' heiress is famous for putting her faith first.
"I think people use fame as an excuse to lose their faith," Roberston told FOX411. "Faith is obviously my number one priority and I think you need to put God at the top of everything you do."
The overnight success of her family's hit A&E show has put Robertson in the spotlight, and the teenager is using her fame to help promote family values.
"When we began 'Duck Dynasty,' we weren't starting it for fame," she said. "We started it to get the message of God out there."
Robertson says her family's show helped to fill a hole in today's television programming by providing wholesome, Christian values for families to enjoy together.
"We could have easily done a reality show like everyone else," she said. "But it's our faith that catches people's eyes because sadly, it's not something we're used to seeing [on TV] these days."
Robertson pointed out that there are several new Christian-themed films coming out this year. "It just takes one person to take a stance and begin doing something different. We think [the show] has done a good job of getting out God's message."

I didn’t know if this was pertinent enough for the religion sidebar.... Maybe someone can ping a religion ping list holder.
She and her whole family is successful on the showbiz front and they are VERY faithful and insert Faith in their program.
For any liberal in Hollywood, this drives them crazy.
They are determined to turn entertainment biz into an all out porn show. Anything to do with God and it boils their blood. The fact that the Robertson’s are successful AND have God... well that just puts them over the edge.
You can’t lose what you never had.
This is a young lady who will be successful no matter what she puts her hand to. Her parents (and grandparents) have done an excellent job.
She ROCKS! I want to teach her to snow ski!
I want to teach her to drive. (Or did she finally learn?)
Sadie isn’t alone in her faith. Her family raised her right and now she has the support of her family protecting her from the filth of the entertainment industry. Miley and Justin? I see two kids who were abandoned, spiritually, and thrown to the coyotes.
I want my son to meet her :)
She so right on the money on this
