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!

Universal Language

In Guatemala, many languages are spoken, but guess what? English is not the main one. ;) I tell you though...hugs, love, and smiles are!! Surrounding myself with folks that I couldn't truly talk to was way out of my comfort zone.  God calls us out of our comfy bubble though, doesn’t He?  Our first morning on the work site as soon as we get there, I greeted those kiddos with smiles, love, and hugs.  It was obvious that they knew right away that we were there to help them! Was priceless!  Those sweet munchkins and I exchanged hugs, smiles, and love the whole week! Again, priceless and hard to put into words.

Isn't it crazy to think how often in our every day lives how smiles can make someone's day? Not everybody is a hugger, but those of us who are, isn't it cool how a simple hug can let someone know you care and things are going to be ok? Love...I think that can be the trickiest some times. Yet God loves us so much He gave His only son. (John 3:16)  The least we can do is go love each other, even when it's hard or maybe even inconvenient.

Love, hugs, and smiles can go a long way... Have you told someone today that you love them? Did you exchange a hug with anybody? Have you smiled at someone who was initially frowning and actually a gotten a smile in return?
