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!

Joy

Actions speak louder than words sometimes, don't they? We attended church while we were in Guatemala.  Like I mentioned in a previous post, English was not the primary common language. This worship experience, however, was AMAZING!  We were greeted with hugs, smiles, and hand shakes when we walked in. Before we knew it, the service started and those there were full of joy.  It was so obvious!


I had a mentor tell me once that no matter your age or stage of life, there is always someone looking up to you and watching you when you least expect it. It's so true. The Holy Spirit was filling this church! We were all smiling, humming (singing when we knew the words), clapping, many were crying tears of joy while worshipping Our Lord.  These Guatemalans knew they were blessed to come and worship as a community. My heart was overflowing...and was watching them so I saw the love they had for (and from) our Lord!  They were into the lesson and scripture being taught. They weren't worried about what time it was...they were ecstatic to just be there! Melted my heart like crazy. 



What are your actions, facial expressions, or for that matter, everything you do showing others?  My prayer for all of us is that we are producing the fruits of the Spirit…love, joy, peace,… (Galatians 5: 22)
