The "Duck Dynasty" star captioned the photo, "1 year with you has been absolutely amazing. I have learned so much about myself, how to have a Godly relationship, and so much about the incredible man of God you are. you continue to encourage me & make me better every single day. thank you for an amazing year & an amazing relationship. can't imagine life without you. thanks for being my person. thanks for making me laugh. thanks for loving me in the good & the bad times. thanks for just being my one :-) 1.11.15."

Meanwhile, on his Instagram account, Coward also shared a photo of himself and Robertson. "He captioned the image, "I couldn't have asked for a better year. I thank God every day for you."

The former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant and the Alabama high school star appear to be more than compatible; according to Sadie, the two were "raised in the same kind of family" and in the "same kind of church." The couple also shares the same Biblical values regarding their purity.

"I don't really date guys who don't feel the same way [about waiting until marriage]," Robertson recently said. "It's going to be way harder if we went into a relationship having different opinions about that."

Robertson, who often discusses her dedication to modesty, recently teamed up with Sherri Hill, a fashion designer, for the release of an all new, "daddy-approved" Spring 2015 fashion collection.

A recent video release gives a behind-the scenes view of the collection, which includes dozens of dresses and gowns suitable for occasions such as prom and galas. In the background music, Robertson's former "DWTS" partner Mark Ballas sings "I can't stop starin' at her design / Extraordinary, and she don't realize / Got that little extra somethin.'"

The 17 year old model has often dabbled in the fashion world; last year, she participated by walking the runway during New York Fashion Week. She recounted the unpleasant experience in her new book, Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values.

"Many of [the other models]did not say a word to me," Robertson wrote. "They just looked at me like they had icicles in their eyes. They cared way too much about their outward appearance. Confidence is an inside thing. I could have totally lost it over the comments people made and the icy looks they gave me, but I didn't. God has been training me my whole life ... to be strong and confident."
