About Us

Kristin is a Southern Georgia belle, who graduated from UGA as a veterinarian May 2010. Carter grew up in NC, went on to seminary, became an ordained pastor, and has completed his doctorate of ministry. Carter resided in SC for about 7 years (4 of these years with Kristin), and we now reside in FL. After about a month of emailing, asking questions, and going through the steps of eharmony.com, we were full of excitement and became very eager to meet one another face to face. October 25, 2009, we met and enjoyed every minute together. We had no doubt God was going to strengthen our relationship with Him as well as with one another. Carter proposed August 9, 2010 on the boat in the middle of Lake Wylie at sunset. Kristin said "Yes" after some happy tears. We got married April 2, 2011 and what an amazing beautiful day that was! God has continued to bless us throughout our marriage. We look forward to see what He has in store for us each and every day. We are super blessed to be down in Boca serving the Lord. God is constantly surprising us with new callings!

First Semester Flew By!

I cannot thank God enough for an awesome first semester of teaching.  I’ve said it before: I didn’t see myself walking in the shoes of a professor.  God obviously had another plan, and I can honestly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed 99.99% of the teaching process...preparing, mentoring, and teaching.

Not only did I have the privilege of teaching many students, but they also opened my eyes to new things. Starting on our first day together back in August and all the way through the last day of the semester, they taught and reminded me of many things. Patience.  Encouraging one another. Deep breaths do really help. Positive attitudes. How important it is to love and support these students (and other staff). Thinking before you speak.  Someone is always watching you. How influential it can be to let God shine through you. The list goes on...

As I have received unexpected emails, evaluations, and verbals full of kind words that touched my heart in a special way, I thank God.  I have told many of these students in response to their amazing messages and compliments that I can’t take the credit for an amazing semester. I have to give God the credit for working through me, but boy, am I thankful He continues to do so! I strive everyday to glorify Him...and that includes when I'm in the classroom (or lab), too!    

Being super confused occupationally since veterinary school, God has used many of students (as well as my teaching mentors) to emphasize that I am right where I am supposed to be for now.  I cannot believe Christmas break is already here!!!!!!!  Merry Christmas!

As I embarked on this new opportunity of teaching, I have appreciated all of you who have surrounded me with prayers.
