Live Original - The Pioneer Issue

“Yes, you may mess and up and people may talk about you, but in the end, how many lives did you touch just by being yourself? You don’t have to be TV, you can be yourself and influence others no matter where you are.” - Sadie Robertson, The Pioneer Issue

Theme of The Pioneer Issue revolves around the idea of authenticity, and what it means to be true to yourself. Those who as Sadie explains ‘live original,’ are often seen as different, or what we called throughout the issue, pioneers. We are sold out online, so check out your local Barnes & Noble to get your copy before they’re all gone!

Over on Instagram, we are starting some discussions on this topic of authenticity and giving the word its true meaning back and what that looks like in real life. We hope you join us in these conversations!
