After a quick question and answer segment, Sadie spoke about briefly about her family members and their faith. She expressed that her and her family's faith were of the up most importance to them, "Our whole family's big on faith, and that's obviously the number one importance in our life."

She also spoke about being confident in yourself and who you are, "I found a bible verse, I read it every day about being confident. It said, if you have confidence, you will be richly rewarded. You definitely have to keep strong in your faith and your confidence and know who you are as a person."

Sadie did not however speak about the comments made by her grandfather, the family Patriarch, Phil Robertson.
