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!

December: Carter's Corner

JOY to the WORLD the LORD is COME!

Are we ready for HIM to come? It’s that time again, Christmas time! Some have been counting down for months; many are excited; and there are some who are dreading Christmas this year for one reason or another. No matter where we are in the spectrum, Christ will come. Christmas is almost upon us, but are we ready? REALLY?

Kristin and I have had a few friends recently give birth or have announced that they are having a baby in the months to come. There is excitement about friends having babies. This excitement is good! We have also been hearing about all the work that is required to prepare for a new baby. Baby items to be purchased: diapers, strollers, car seats, and so much more. The baby’s room needs to be re-done, painted and fixed up, and sometimes even a new room needs to be built on or built in for a baby’s room. There is always LOTS of preparation for a baby, especially for a couple’s first baby.

Do we take this amount of time to prepare for the birth of Jesus, the King of the Universe?

Maybe our hearts and lives are in the wilderness and desert that Isaiah was talking about in Isaiah 40. Maybe, just maybe, we are a wilderness, a desert. What must we do to prepare for Christ’s coming? Are we talking about Christmas now or His triumphant return? Maybe it doesn’t matter because they need the same preparation. A preparation of hearts, which requires humility and submission to the Lord of the Universe, who was born as a baby at Christmas. A preparation of our heart requires heart surgery. It requires us taking our heart of flesh and exchanging it for a heart born of the spirit. It requires us to have our heart no longer oriented on our wants and desires but on the desires of Christ. Jeremiah 17:9 states, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick.” Once we understand that, we can start the process of preparing our hearts for Christ this Christmas.
