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!

The Energizer Bunnies

We were talking the other day about how we wanted to share the latest that’s been going on in the Robinson’s World these days. Then, we realized we haven’t sent an update out since May! Whoah! We have definitely been going, going, going the last several months. Let’s see if we can recap what all God’s been up to.

Starting back at the end of May…We did end up closing on our house May 31st! What a process that was! We found out the day of closing that we would be closing that afternoon! (What?! Yes, not kidding!) We have gotten settled now and are so blessed to be in Murrells Inlet. It’s been awesome to host various fellowships, bible studies, etc. and share our house with so many others already!

JUNE and JULY: I am going to combine these summer months together. We stayed non-stop between moving and getting settled in our new place, Kristin taking a trip to Newnan for some much needed Momma time, VBS at church, and family and friends beach visits.

We eat up and love every minute we have with family and friends that come and stay with us! We are blessed to have the space to host them here now.

AUGUST and SEPTEMBER: At the beginning of August before Kristin had to go back to school and to celebrate Mary’s birthday as well as Bob’s retirement, Bob, Carter, Mary, and Kris took off on a cruise to the Caribbean. Just what we all needed!!!!!  I could type about our trip page after page. What an awesome time! More fun to talk about in person.

PIPC threw us a House Blessing mid-August. WOW! First off, not only did we pray all throughout the house, for us living here, and for all who would enter through our doors, but lots of laughter, smiles, and yummies filled our home. We never expected to have that many people under our roof at once. What a cool idea!

Kristin kicked off full time teaching this August, and she has thoroughly enjoyed it more than she ever thought she would. Isn’t it awesome how God’s plan works out? Take about a detour she didn’t see coming. She is blessed daily at HGTC by students, colleagues, teaching, and learning new things everyday herself!

At the end of August, we had our L-squared kick off at church. The mission is “Learning and Living God’s word.” Boy did these small groups start off strong! There was/were/are a variety of choices for all ages to participate in. For example, Carter has two young men’s bible studies going on right now. One meets on Wednesdays weekly for lunch, and these guys are studying and working through The Resolution for Men. Sons of Thunder meet one Thursday evening a month, and they are focusing on the Courageous bible study. These guys are heated and super excited about how God is working in their lives. (Their wives can tell how important this guy time is and how it’s branching into our marriages and families in a “speechless” way.)  Keeping God as the center of a marriage makes all the difference in the world!

Kristin felt led to lead a young women’s bible study. This was a first for her facilitating a study with a group of women on her own. I think the only thing that gave her peace, hope, and assurance was knowing that God was really leading this study. There are much wiser women that came together for this study that easily could have been leading us.  What an awesome opportunity it was to share stories as we read Lysa TerKeurest’s UNGLUED. We had weekly fun fellowship and laughed quite a bit as we dug into Lysa’s book and grew closer to Him!  Most Monday nights, we had 12-18 women gathered together. We wrapped up this study last Monday night…these weeks together flew by.  Kristin is diligently praying on what study to do in February.

OCTOBER: Carter has attended a huge conference, Catalyst, in Atlanta for the last 6 years. Kristin has happily joined him for the past 3 years. This year, we also had our youth director, our administrative assistant, and a congregant join us. The topic this year was KNOWN. Once again, the speakers blew our minds; we were overwhelmed by all of them. We heard from Andy Stanley, Malcom Gladwell, John Piper, Lecrae, Judah Smith, Reggie Joiner, Priscilla Shirer, Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze. (I’m sure I’m leaving someone out.) Some one-liners we picked up from these talented speakers were: “The reason I’m known is because God has given me this gift at this time.” “I am known to make Him known.” “Remember who its from and who its for.” “Your appetite will never be satisfied by a number, only a who, only a name. GOD!”  “We don’t know our own strength.” “Don’t underestimate the power of your own faith—God will protect you!” “You need a foundation of trust, intuition, and belief.” “You are free to dream in a trusting environment.” “We were made to reflect and glorify God in every aspect of life.” “God owns it all.” “Are we passionate about directing EVERYTHING to Him?” “We are creatures of God with nature designed by God with conscious desire and displays to share God’s greatness, worth, and beauty.” “We need to find full satisfaction in God.” “Know who you are by the grace of God.” “God doesn’t need us, but he wants us! He loves us!”  “God has patience to walk and grow with you. He never leaves us.” “Make what matters matter more.” I could go on and on…

We got back from Catalyst and then Kristin went with 11 other women to Charlotte for a Women of Faith conference. Another WOW weekend! Not much can compare to an arena full of women worshipping Our Father. There’s just something special about it! Again, speakers were awesome and consisted of: Shelia Walsh, Liz Curtis Higgs, Max Lucado, Lisa Harper…Worship with CeCe Winans as well as Third Day! (Again, I’m sure I’m leaving someone out.)  Kristin is still trying to sort through all that was said this weekend.  We were all blessed by these women, who allowed God to speak through them.

Wow! November is already here! Thanksgiving is right around the corner. We pray that all of us slow down long enough EVERY day, not just in November, to take a minute to thank Him for all He has given us.

We love all of you!
Hugs, Prayers, and Love,

Carter and Kris
