Episode 181

Gary Player is one of the greatest golfers to ever play the game; he is known around the world as “The Black Knight.” His love for the sport is obvious, but it's clear there is one thing he loves more: His family. He and his wife, Vivienne, who passed away last year, are the parents of six kids. Gary and Vivienne’s story, which includes falling in love as teenagers and 65 years of marriage on earth, has set a powerful example for all who know them. But what does he have to do with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? You’ll have to listen to this week’s episode to find out.

You see, what He takes away, He gives back tenfold if ye seek Him in your life.
