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!

All Around Us

Have you ever had one of those moments that could linger into a frustrating and aggravating time, but quicker than you know, it turns into a "God wink" moment? Happens all the time, doesn't it? 

Off to the airport we went...Carter was dropping me off to go spend a few days with Mom. Traffic was heavy. Airport check and security had a decent amount of other folks eager to get to their gates so they don't miss their flights.  

When I can, I always prefer to just pack a carry-on to make things flow smoother once I get to my destination.  I hit the security section of the airport, put my license back in my bag, took my shoes off, ..., went through the spinning camera scan check, and then have to wait AGAIN to have my bag double-checked.  Something set off the belt alarm through the initial scan. 

A gruff, super tall, football player built older man with a stern voice asks, "Whose bag is this?" "Yes, Sir. That's my bag,” I answered with a big smile on my face (of course, while my thoughts were trying to go through what all is in my bag that could have possibly set the alarm off). I couldn't help but wonder what I may have accidentally put it there... Hmmm...

What do you think set it off? Something I always travel with...  What's your guess? Ready...get this...it was my bible!  I laughed.  I knew it was a "Talk to him about Me" moment.  I shared how I always travel with my bible and how I have found the importance of reading scripture every day.  How it guides me, answers many questions, reminds me of what being a Christian entails, shows me how I can be more Christ-like, and...  "Would you like to keep it?" I asked. After I asked him that, I thought to myself, "Wait, this was one of my first bibles from Carter after I graduated from vet school...and was married...it was my smaller pink one with my first ever 'Dr. Kristin K. Robinson’ on it." I knew that the devil snuck that selfish little thought in there...and then God gave me peace saying giving away a bible is by far more what sharing Christ is about.  

Needless to say, the security guard explained to me how he has one but just doesn't read it very often.  I let him know that I used to be there, too.  "I had to really make it a priority despite the busyness of life and my to-do list staying a mile long.  Now, it doesn't feel like a chore; it's a want and awesome opportunity." I can't explain how these few minutes brightened my day even more. (Mind you, I was already super excited to be going home to see my Momma and Granddaddy.) I watched a very stern man with no smile soften up some and share a chuckle and smile with me at the end of our time together.  

My bible has always passed through security without a problem.  It was obvious God put me where He did when He did that day. As a girlfriend said when I briefly shared this story with her, "Keep planting those seeds, Sister." I am humbled to be able to do exactly that with strangers as well as those I know.  God allows us to cross paths with certain people each and every day.  Yet again, I was super blessed today that He trusted me and gave me the words I needed right when I needed them.  God is good...all the time!

I have already purchased my next plane ticket, and I can’t wait to see what God has planned for my airport/airplane adventure coming up…
