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!

November: Carter's Corner

Thankful for a Legacy

“When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors,
I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom.”
2 Samuel 7:12

The Catalyst theme this year was KNOWN. Catalyst is a two-day church leadership event in Atlanta, GA where 10-15 THOUSAND leaders converge in the Gwinnett Arena. We were definitely challenged by each and every speaker as well as moved by powerful worship of our Lord and Savior.

One of the sessions was about leaving a legacy. It made me wonder...what type of LEGACY are we creating and leaving? This session was led by Dave Ramsey and his daughter, Rachel Cruze. Take a moment and read 2 Samuel 7. It talks about the story of David wanting to build a temple for God, but God saying NO to David, but promising David that one of his offspring would build the temple. David left a legacy to his son, Solomon. David himself did not build the temple. David wasn't allowed to build the temple, but he prepared the way for his son, Solomon, to build the temple. That was an amazing legacy that David left.

What type of legacy are we creating and leaving to future generations? Are we preparing people to follow Christ by bringing them up in the Lord? Are we leaving the world in a better place than when we got here? Are we training young leaders to take our place when we are gone? Are we INTENTIONAL about leaving a LEGACY? Or are we just hoping it will happen? I pray that we take time to pray about how we might INTENTIONALLY leave a legacy for those who come behind us.

As Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, we can be thankful for those who have left a legacy for us. Our lives have been blessed by those who have come before us. Let us INTENTIONALLY leave a legacy for those who follow.
