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!

A Blind Beggar Receives His Sight
As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord, I want to see,” he replied. Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God. Luke 18:35-43

Wouldn’t life be easier if we were blind beggars? Then, we would know that we needed healing, right? We would know without a doubt that we needed to see because we couldn’t.

I’m willing to bet the blind beggar knew he was blind. What about people today? Do they realize their spiritual infirmities? It is easier to see physical infirmities. So many of us have those physical infirmities, and we are praying for healing! God is the Great Physician!

But what about our spiritual infirmities…can we see those? Do we even realize that we need healing?

I’m praying that we might learn to REALLY see as Jesus Christ would have us see. To know Him, and to see HIM first.

What does it mean to see Christ? Maybe it means that we take our eyes off ourselves for a few moments and look beyond ourselves to something greater than ourselves. Maybe its about submitting, humbling ourselves to a Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Maybe it means living for Him.

Once we see Him, let’s work on personally seeing like Christ. To actually see those around us as Jesus Christ sees them. How do we know how Christ sees them? The Bible does a good job showing how Jesus Christ sees people, how he sees religious people, and how he sees those who are in need.
