  1. What a great life lesson tied into the most amazing gift of grace. It’s so hard to watch our kids go through these lessons. You handled it so well.

    Blessings to you all!

    What a great analogy! I’m sure that most of my most important life lessons came out of losses and not out of victories. I loved this.

  3. Thank you both for sharing this story! What a great message that came out of disappointment!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

    Wow, what a great message. So sorry for Levi as I am sure he still disappointed, but that was a great way of comparing Easter. Big hugs to him as I am sure he will come back from this stronger than he was before:)

  5. This was heart-breakingly ( is that a word ๐Ÿ˜‚) beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

  6. I’m so sorry Levi! Golf is a very humbling sport. I’ve only been playing for two years but in many tournaments. Just know this one tournament doesn’t undue all the hard work and dedication you’ve already invested. Never give up. Shake it off and on to the next hole!

  7. I love how you took a difficult life lesson and turned it into an analogy for Easter!

  8. This post made me cry! I feel for Levi, I feel for you as a mom looking for the words to help him more forward. And the moments when you knew something was very wrong but did not know what – after hours of not being with him. Ugh. And I’m not very religious, but I love the lesson here. It was meant to teach Levi no doubt about it. He is a better person, and athlete because of the experience. Thanks to you and Levi for sharing. I will have my boys read this post.

  9. Love this real-life illustration. Thank you for sharing!
