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!

Change

In my last blog post, I asked if you were running from anything.  I think for the first time ever, I hadn’t been just running from something, but I was also running towards the same thing I was running from…CHANGE.  Carter and I just entered another phase of life full of changes.  Is this a good thing?  Yes!  Is this change full of lots of unknowns? Yes! (That’s where having faith comes in.)  Does change come with a variety of emotions?  Of course!  I couldn’t have been more eager to get down to Florida to be with Carter and our new church family…BUT, I had a super hard time leaving the friendships I truly cherish as well as a job that I love!  It was so obvious that God was calling us to Boca though.  Did that make the move easier?  YES and no.  God, like always, kept teaching me and reminding me of a variety of things over these last couple months, which helped shift my mindset.  Instead of the dread of leaving some awesome buddies, I started cherishing the time I had with them even more as we continued to add memories to relationships.  I continued to be thankful for what many would call “the small things.”  I really did start to look forward to what God had in store for us and the church down in Boca.  He was The One who called us here in the first place…He always has a plan.  But back to my title, one of the biggest reassurances I received over and over again was that despite all the changes going on in our world, Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”  He isn’t going to change!  He will remain who He says He is!  He will keep His promises!
