Our Golf Life is Hard, but God Helps us Persevere!

Today, I am going to pour out my heart. 
Oh, where do I begin? Golf is hard. Golf is fun. Golf is a rollercoaster.  
A few months ago, Jared played in his first Web.Com Tour event of the season. He made the cut and we were thrilled! Then, he had a rough weekend and finished close to last. A few weeks later, he Monday qualified into the New York tournament and not only made the cut, he finished around the middle of the pack. He's making so much progress! 
Then, fast forward a few weeks and we are to the point we are today. He didn't make it through the past two Monday qualifiers. As Jared's wife, it absolutely BREAKS MY HEART to see him disappointed in himself. 

My husband is the HARDEST working man out there and he puts his heart and soul into grinding every single day. I want more than anything for him to make it to the PGA Tour one day. If you know Jared and I at all, this has nothing to do with money, it's all about the dream and calling God has placed on our life. …

This Granola is Nuts Review


I really enjoyed this granola. It had a great taste!  I used this granola in three different ways. I first tried it in a smoothie. It blended really well and I could taste the difference it gave to the smoothie. The second way I tried it, which was my favorite, was to mix it in a bowl with yogurt. My wife gave me this idea when we started dating and it's one of my favorite ways to eat granola. I really liked the flavor and texture it added to the yogurt. The third way was straight from the bag. I also really liked the raw taste of the granola. I recommend this to anyone looking for a snack, an addition to smoothies, or an add on to any snack!
