"Duck Dynasty" darling Sadie Robertson is gearing up for a number of big events in the upcoming months, including hosting her "Live Original" event this weekend as well as the 46th annual GMA Dove Awards in October.

This Saturday, the 18-year-old model and "Dancing with the Stars" alum will be hosting the very first "Live Original LIVE" event at the Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. She will be accompanied by her brother John Luke and his wife Mary Kate, her boyfriend Blake Coward, The Bachelor couple Sean and Catherine Lowe, as well as award-winning Christian singing duo For King & Country.

"The event will highlight those who are following Sadie's call to 'live original' in all areas of their lives including their schools, communities, and relationships," according to the Live Original website.

During the event, Sadie's friends Max and Bonnie Kate Zoghbi are expected to share the inspirational tale of their faith following their recent marriage. YouTube personality Natasha Bure, daughter of Candace Cameron and Valeri Bure, will serve as guest speaker.

"This is the most excited I have ever been about any event, and that's saying a lot!" said Sadie. "We have been praying that this message will touch a lot of lives."

Tickets range from $29 to $199 and can be purchased at www.LiveOriginal.com or by contacting the Allen Arena box office at (615) 966-7075.

Sadie will also join Gospel music powerhouse Erica Campbell in hosting the 46th annual GMA Dove Awards October 13, at Allen Arena at Lipscomb University in Nashville. The Dove Awards will air on Trinity Broadcasting Family of Networks on Sunday, Oct. 18.

Willie and Korie's daughter, who rose to stardom via the A&E network in 2012, praised Campbell in a press release and called it a "true honor" to be able to work with her.

"I'm so excited to host this year's Dove Awards," she said. "It is a true honor to be able to share the stage with Erica Campbell, and it's going to be a great night. I am really looking forward to it!"

Sadie, who continues to expand her fashion empire after the recent launch of her "Live Original" home decor range and jewelry line, recently spent some time on "Fox and Friends," where she discussed her New York Times bestselling book, Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values.

"My dad nicknamed me 'The Original' when I was five because I used to preach on the table - he'd say, 'Ok, this kid is weird!'" she explained of how the book got its titled. "And I just kind of owned it, I said, 'Yeah, that's me!' So I just spread the message to live original and be confident in the person that God made you."

When asked what she hopes to do in the future, Sadie responded, "I don't really know. Everything that has happened so far has been so God-given...I haven't planned anything, it's just been a blessing. So I'm going to keep going and keep trusting in the Lord!"
