This past weekend was The Player's Championship at TPC Sawgrass! We were very fortunate to get tickets with Jared's status on the Web.Com Tour this year. It also included tickets for family and friends as well. On Friday morning, before I had to go to work, we followed our friend, Steve Wheatcroft. His wife, Sarah, had some awesome T-shirts made that said "Wheat Watchers" on the front and "#TeamWheatie" on the back. It was fun to support our friend in this really big tournament! He made the cut and we followed his full rounds on Saturday and Sunday! It was a blast!
On Sunday morning, we were asked to take part in the Chapel Service. FCA Golf Jacksonville organized everything and they did a phenomenal job. We actually spoke on the same stage that they crowned the 2016 Players Champion, Jason Day!
We talked about our marriage and how keeping Christ at the center of it has been the best thing we could do. Here's a link to the full video if you're interested in hearing our story!
We had a great time sharing our story. We weren't nervous and fortunately, Matt (the guy who interviewed us) and his wife Karen, have become good friends, so it was easy to just talk to him in front of probably 100+ people.
Our wonderful sponsor, Nature's Bakery, provided some delicious healthy snacks for people to enjoy. They were GONE in minutes! The cool thing was that there was donuts right next to it and actually had donuts left over. We were happy to see lots of people choosing a healthy snack!
Jared's parents came and stayed with us for the week. They took pics and video so the rest of the family could watch that weren't able to make it to the service. Big thanks to them!!
We were thrilled to see our some of our good friends in the crowd who came out to support us! Thanks Calvin, Kaytie, Ellae, Brian, and Laura (unpictured).
After the Chapel Service, we watched Steve's final round and then caught up to watch our other friend Justin Thomas's back nine.
We had a great time with family and we were very blessed to be a part of the Chapel Service. We hope our story will be encouraging to at least one person. Feel free to email us (email@example.com) if you have any questions! Our purpose for playing golf is to share God's love with everyone!

HomePlate Peanut Butter sent us some of their different flavors to try in exchange for an honest review.
Here's a little info about the company from their website:
We totally agree that you can taste a difference in this peanut butter. It is DELICIOUS and the texture is SPOT ON. We are HUGE peanut butter fanatics and this brand ranks up at the very top! We really liked that it didn't have any weird ingredients. We put it on Waffles, PB&J sandwiches, eggs, ice cream, chicken veggie stir fry, just by the spoonful, and more! Like I said, we LOVE peanut butter. :)
Peanuts, cane sugar, palm fruit oil, salt are what make up the creamy and crunchy flavor. The only additional ingredient to that list was honey in the honey flavor. THAT'S IT!
Please do yourself a favor and TRY THIS PEANUT BUTTER! You won't regret it! Check out their website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram too.

Capello's sent us pizza, pasta, and cookie dough to try in exchange for an honest review.
Here's a little info about Capello's from their website:
My good friend, Laura, came over for pizza and girl talk one night. We thought the pizza was pretty tasty! The dough was a little less crispy in the very middle, but it was still delicious and the perfect food for our girl's night!
A few weeks later, Jared and I invited our friends, Brian and Ellae, over for a game night. We had 3 people (I don't like chocolate, so I skipped out) eating these cookies, and only 3 were left over if that gives you any indication on how good they tasted! haha Everyone loved them and couldn't believe that they didn't have a single bad ingredient in them!
Jared loves pasta and he was extremely pleased with Capello's! He was impressed at how tasty it was again without having any weird ingredients! It was also extremely easy to make. All you have to do is boil water and then drop the pasta in for 90 seconds. Boom! Talk about a quick and easy healthy meal!

One Degree Organic Foods sent us some cereal and flour to try in exchange for a review.
Here's some info about the company from their website:
I have never used Spelt or Rye flour before, but it was a nice alternative to our usual wheat flour. If you missed my recipe for my recent Apple Muffins, click here to see it. The spelt flour has a little bit of a nutty taste to it and it's awesome! We loved it! Next on our list is using the Rye flour. Maybe I can make a savory muffin? Hmmmm...
Jared was a HUGE fan of the Brown Rice Cacao Crisps. He loves anything related to chocolate, so he was all over these! He enjoyed them with milk and also mixed into some yogurt and peanut butter.
We hope you will try some of their products as well! They have a lot of really good healthy options! Explore their website, Facebook, and Twitter

Golf is hard. It is a sport that is full of ups and downs. Today, I want to spill my heart out and let you inside a golf wife's brain. These past two weeks, Jared has tried to Monday Qualify for a Web.com Event and a PGA event. For the Web.Com event, he shot 5 under and went into a playoff with 2 other guys to compete for 1 spot. Jared's par putt lipped out (one of the most annoying things that happens) and he lost the playoff.
The following week, he shot 6 under at the PGA event. He was tied for 3rd and they only took 4 players total, so he waited ALL DAY LONG for the rest of the groups to finish because he had a morning tee time. After waiting 7 hours to see if a playoff would happen, he got knocked out of the running because someone shot 8 under.
I know that trying to explain what this feels like to someone who doesn't know about golf is close to impossible, so I wanted to share some other life scenarios that would come close to comparing.
Missing a qualifier by one is like...
When Cronuts (crossant+donut) were a new hit thing, and you waited in line for five hours to taste one for the first time, only to be told as you reach the counter, that they are sold out.
When your boyfriend dumps you and starts dating your best friend.
When you work your butt off to impress your boss in order to get a raise, but he gives it to the new guy who just started last month.
When you go on a road trip and you've almost reached your destination, but your car breaks down a mile away.
When you plan a vacation to the beach and are counting down the days only to arrive to a week full of rain and thunderstorms.
When you're out fishing on the lake all day long without a single bite until the very last minute; you tug and tug on the line and fight with that fish for almost an hour, and then it gets away.
When you train for months for a marathon, and are making great time at the race and make your personal record, only to discover someone changed the signs of the course mid way through, so your time doesn't even count.
When you're a kid and your mom says you can get something from the icecream man if they come by. You wait for a few hours in the hot sun and he comes, so you run inside and get your money. You buy the icecream and as soon as you're about to take a bite, a bird flies by and POOPS on it!
Missing a qualifier by one is the worst. As Jared's wife, I wish I could take away his hurt, disappointment, and pain. If you know me at all, I hate spending money that I don't need to, and I would give up our life savings if it meant that Jared would just be given the chance to compete in a PGA event. I KNOW he has what it takes, and the comforting part is that I KNOW GOD HAS IT ALL PLANNED OUT. Even when life is disappointing, God has it under control and the cool thing is that He has something even better in store for Jared's golf career! We are human and we feel the disappointment after a tough day, but after we get our feelings out, we just simply PRAISE God for all the many blessings He has given us. We have TOO MUCH to be thankful for and we want to make our praises louder than our petitions! I am SO PROUD of my hubby and I believe in him and know he will be there one day. I mean, look at this scorecard his mom sent me... And this was just thru 9 holes!!!
