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!

Carter's Corner
A time and season for everything…

It’s summer time!  The seasons change, the weather is warm, and “beach season” is here.  We attempted to go to the beach Memorial Day weekend just for an hour and found no parking ANYWHERE.  As we drive around for errands, to and from work, to visit folks, the roads are very busy again. I can honestly say Kristin and I have experienced an entire year here now.  The summer season, the fall season, the winter season, the spring, and now we are starting the summer again. Time flies!  I know many of you have been here for several years and have seen Pawleys Island change over the years and go through seasons of change.  Kristin and I traveled to her Uncle John’s funeral, where we had a season of mourning.  In our household, we have even had a season of being under the weather recently.  We are told that there is a time and season for everything...the fun and the sad.  The crowds and the loneliness, being busy and also slowing down.  Martha Henry, a PIPC high school senior, talked about “Mary and Martha” (Luke 10:38-42) in her senior sermon last Sunday.  I challenge us to take a season like Mary did and sit at HIS feet.  Joshua 1:8 reminds us to “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it.” If you have not taken a season to really study and mediate on the Bible recently, why not start today?  Take the time NOW...don’t wait.  We were reminded as Kristin lost her 49 year old uncle suddenly that we are not guaranteed another day and that we need to make the most of every day.  I encourage us to take time this summer, to take a “season” to sit at His feet, meditate on HIS word, and spend time with Him. Once this season begins, let’s make strengthening our relationship with God a lifelong season.  Besides summer, what season are you in, going through, or approaching?

Ecclesiastes 3
New International Version (NIV)
A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

    a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,

    a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,

    a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,

    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

    a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,

    a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,

    a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.
