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!

Beautifully Cracked


Bright green ocean.

Sound of waves.

Our toes are finally back in the sand!

Fun morning walk on the beach.

Because of the busyness of life (and this crazy rainy weather), we had not been on the beach in a while. As we walked, we began describing the shells we were passing.  We even stopped several times to pick some up.

“Look at this one.” “It’s so big.” “It’s beautiful.” “It’s cracked.” “It’s broken.” “It’s almost perfect.” “It’s so different.”

Those were only some of the many descriptions we exchanged on our beach walk a few days ago.  Our conversation shifted quickly to how these observations made us thankful for the God we serve.  The shells reminded us of ourselves. We are broken people…yet God has chosen us. He’s made each and every one of us different…yet He loves all of us. We are beautiful in His eyes, despite our brokenness.

God continues to teach us on a daily basis. It’s challenging to slow down long enough to hear Him speak to us through His daily teachings some days though. Isn’t it awesome to be reminded that God “chose you out of the world?” (John 15:19)  Or that we are “God’s special possession?” (1 Peter 2:9)  Or how “God is love” (1 John 4:8)? How awesome is it that He makes “everything beautiful in His time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)?

We would love to hear what God’s been teaching and reminding you of lately through His word, His creation, and the people He places in your life.  Thanks for letting us share another way He’s been working in our lives with you.  So blessed He put you in our lives.  We love you…each and every one of you.
