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!

Living for...?????

Are you (Am I) living for God or for other people? My prayer lately has been “Lord, help us to not seek the applause of our friends and colleagues, but rather to look to You for approval.  Teach us to put into the practice the principles you have taught us.”  Society tells us we need the approval of everybody but God.  Walking with God isn’t always easy.  It’s much easier sometimes to walk with our culture and do things as we please. In order to know what God approves of, I have to dig into His word for guidance. Not just once in a blue moon, but daily!  There are some days where spending time in God’s word is soul soaring, encouraging, and all around awesome. Other days it takes a lot more effort and feels like a chore. On “those” days, maybe I’ve let my to-do list get in the way...or I have a negative attitude brewing. What gets in your way?  Lets fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith (Hebrews 12:2).  One of the Proverbs 31 Ministry women I look up to in more ways than one, Lysa Terkeurst, says it best: “Pausing for God, the One I should seek before all else, is essential for my soul’s well-being.”  Guess what, Friends? That’s true for my soul and yours, too!

    Oh it is so true!! When we take our eyes off Jesus, that means we are looking at the water and will drown!! Wise words, my friend!!

  2. In this world where some want to take God out of everyday life, because someone else might be offended; its easy to get distracted. Our world is a Godless one, unless we take time to discover His presence and influence in our lives. When we stop and take notice there are endless blessings to count and wonders that we will never fully know while on this earth. Thank you for being one of those blessings Today.

  3. In connection to your earlier post, I didn't make any "resolutions" but, I did pray for wisdom, strength, faith, patience and discipline to listen for His still small voice more carefully each day. Obviously, I'm going to have to be in His word to hear the direction for my life, which is His will, not mine !! He has told me where to serve Him and going deeper in one area, rather than spreading myself thinly in several areas is where His voice led me. Like everything else, when serving Him, if it wasn't a good thing, Satan wouldn't throw sooo many distractions and road blocks at us ... and isn't Satan busy?? Our God is greater and so awesome, we always have a window to call on Him. When we face roadblocks or days where it takes extra effort, something wonderful must be happening !!!!

    One of my favorite verses & yours: "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)

    Love you !!!
